Since 2004, Bleeding Skull has explored otherworldly cinema through reviews, books, and home video releases. We shine a light on independent genre films that have flown under the radar but deserve to be seen by all. Fangoria has called Bleeding Skull “The go-to encyclopedia for trash, bizarre, and shot-on-video cinema,” while Vice referred to it as “like a fever dream glimpse into parallel worlds".

Let's all go to Donkeyland! Shot on video for $2,000 by “James Dillinger” (aka author James Robert Baker) and produced by Los Angeles art collective EZTV, BLONDE DEATH is a savage blast of underground anarchy. This limited edition flexi disc features "The Ballad of Blonde Death," an exclusive, rip-roaring audio collage by Bleeding Skull that pays tribute to the most accomplished and important shot-on-video film ever made.

The story follows the transformation of Tammy Lynn Beaverdorf (Sara Lee Wade) from bubbly teen to death-tripping speed freak—an in-your-face rampage of sex, drugs, and violence that climaxes with scenes that were secretly filmed inside Disneyland. Satiric, subversive, and gleefully enraged, BLONDE DEATH is an essential chapter of queer cinema history.
