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.

A bloody, sadistically funny satire of cheap horror exploitation films. Psycho Paul, a sinister, egotistical filmmaker introduces previews and scenes from his films as a tribute to himself. He believes that his films are the greatest and worst films ever made. Paul Van Dan Elzen sharpened his skills on the sets of some of Todd Sheets’ classic SOV films before turning the camera on himself, his brother, and his mom and making one of the most mind-meltingly absurd movies ever released. Trust us, you have never seen another movie like this. VHSHITFEST is so proud to present this mesmerizing outsider art epic for the first time ever on disc complete with hours and hours of extras.
