The American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) represents the world's largest theatrical catalog of exploitation cinema. Their home video line presents a diverse selection of movies, ranging from new preservations of classics from the vast library of Something Weird to the wildest in shot-on-video (SOV) titles. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

A beloved regional horror vortex that was conjured in Connecticut, ATTACK OF THE BEAST CREATURES is a triumph of low budget ingenuity. In an unknown galaxy, a group of travelers crash their boat on an island. At first, all is well. But when a man takes a dip in an acid lake and becomes a steaming pile of gloop, it's clear that there's trouble in paradise. That's when the cult of demon dolls reveal themselves . . . and their appetite for eating faces. Fueled by outrageous gore, a sublime synthesizer score, and jaw-dropping puppet effects, this is what happens when a mid-century creature feature collides with DIY surrealism and everyone wins. AGFA is honored to present ATTACK OF THE BEAST CREATURES—originally known as HELL ISLAND—on disc for the first time, featuring a restoration from the original 16mm camera negative and an island full of bloodthirsty extras.
