VHSHITFEST has been uncovering and releasing movies on video for over a decade, across DVD and VHS, and is now moving into blu-ray, with the same goal to showcase the most unique, crazy, and obscure movies that they've discovered through years of collecting VHS, allowing even more people to actually be able to experience these nearly lost gems in the best versions possible.

Awakening a captive to his dreams, James Burton struggles to survive in the wilderness of his mind. A distant mansion draws the dream-vagabond down the dark terrain of a New Age witch, punks, and a psychotic killer. Playing with self-destruction and death, the "Lost Prophet" faces his subconscious enemy with passive, child-like fascination.

Michael de Avila's film is an intense mood piece that adeptly seduces the viewer into a hypnotic state to experience the random curiosities and terrors of the mind. VHSHITFEST could not be happier to rescue this film from obscurity with a beautiful brand new film transfer that captures the breathtaking and spooky visuals.
