SYNAPSE FILMS PRESENTS
A LOST CANUXPLOITATION CLASSIC!
She’ll suck more than your blood!
“Those Evil Deeds of the Countess… SEXCULA!”
SEXCULA is a skin flick of legendary lost status. Shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, it was screened once before disappearing and sought after by cult aficionados for decades. Now, Impulse Pictures is proud to bring you the world premiere of SEXCULA. Sex film fans can finally get a look at this elusive crazy Canadian erotic/horror hybrid for the first time ever.
Starring a Marilyn Chambers lookalike in dual roles as Countess Sexcula, a buxom cutie with no qualms about lying nude on a table for the entire movie, and a horny bride who can’t wait for her ring. The nudity and sex are delivered nonstop in this campy horror romp. Watch in amazement at the naked picnic, the “girl-on-gorilla” strip tease, and stare in awe as a female pleasure-robot puts the plot into a time warp!
Bizarre only begins to describe… SEXCULA!

Convinced that the Oseberg ship contains the answer to the mystery of Ragnarok, the end of days in Norse mythology he mounts an expedition to “No Man’s Land” between Norway and Russia, which holds a secret more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.

On March 1st, Image Entertainment unleashes The Frankenstein Theory on VOD and across the country in exclusive theatrical engagements. Written and directed by Andrew Weiner, and from the makers of The Last Exorcism comes a boldly original vision of horror…
What if the most chilling novel of all time was actually based on a true account of a horrific experiment gone awry? When he is suspended from his university job for his outlandish ideas, Professor John Venkenheim leads a documentary film crew to the rim of the Arctic Circle in a desperate effort to vindicate his academic reputation. His theory: Mary Shelley’s ghastly story, “Frankenstein,” is, in fact, a work of non-fiction disguised as fantasy. In the vast, frozen wilderness, Venkenheim and his team search for the legendary monster, a creature mired in mystery and drenched in blood. What they find is an unspeakable truth more terrifying than any fiction…a nightmare from which there is no waking.

Breaking Glass Pictures Announces March Release
For Kris McManus’ “Dead in France”
Philadelphia, PA -Breaking Glass Pictures is bringing Dead in France, the UK black and white noir comedy from Delacheroy Films, to home video this spring. The film is currently available to rent OnDemand and will be available nationwide on March 26 (SRP $24.99). Directed by Kris McManus and written by star Brian Levine, Dead in France has been a festival hit across the globe, including three wins at the 2012 Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood: Best Feature Film, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor. The Hollywood Reporter called the film a “gore-drenched black comedy” during its theatrical run.
Socially-challenged hit man Charles lives in Cannes and would like to retire with a yacht and a woman in tow despite the fact that he has absolutely no experience with either, at least until he meets his newly-hired cleaning woman, Lisa. Lisa is as beautiful as she is conniving and her boyfriend Denny is even worse. Charles doesn’t account for Denny and his cohorts stealing two million quid from his car. Follow Charles along his hunt for the trio down the beautiful Cote d’Azur. Along the way, his rival Clancy, who is furious by Charles’ decision to retire, has marked him for death.
Movie Farm hailed Dead in France as “a heady mix of high-style and British irreverance as all manners of characters set out to ruin a hitman’s retirement in this charmingly offensive black comedy.”
Last up is the official poster, and red band trailer release from Kiss of the Damned from Magnet Releasing. The romantic vampire tale will be available On Demand and through Itunes March 28th, and in theaters May 3rd!
That’ll do it for another week of Weekly Bloodlines! Any news you’d like to share, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. Till next time….
