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!
THE MONSTER OF CAMP SUNSHINE: Shot by anonymous maniacs in New York, this is a trash-art berserker that feels like what would happen if a 1980s slasher was teleported inside of a 1960s nudist film. A nurse and fashion model head to Camp Sunshine for a weekend of fun, sun, and cigarettes. But little do they know that Hugo, the camp’s gardener, has been transformed into an axe-wielding psychopath after drinking radioactive water! Combining experimental visuals with camp flair, this is a crackpot time capsule featuring Monty Python-esque animation, someone named Ron Cheney, Jr., and, at the end, "a brief summary of the movie for those who wish to relive its magic moments."
HONEYMOON OF TERROR: An early dreamscape from director Peter Perry (MY TALE IS HOT), HONEYMOON OF TERROR (aka ECSTACY ON LOVERS’ ISLAND) is a moody mash-up of horror chills and nudie thrills that feels like a Looney Tunes cartoon made for adults. Frank and Marion are newlyweds who embark on their honeymoon to Thunder Island, only to run afoul of a psychotic, club-footed lumberjack with a lust for violence!
