Team Behind 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' Introduces Cult-Film Comedy's Newest Series
In the fall of 2006, Shout! Factory launched a guerilla marketing campaign targeting fans of MST3K, screening segments of the films and allowing fans to vote on which B-movies they most wanted to see skewered. Now, the results are in and Shout! Factory proudly announces the debut of its DVD line-up from The Film Crew, beginning this summer with The Film Crew: Hollywood After Dark, a 1968 film about a down-on-his-luck loner who falls in with the wrong crowd in Tinseltown and finds salvation in the arms of a stripper (Rue McClannahan of TV's The Golden Girls in her skivvies). Shout! Factory's first-ever direct-to-video title, The Film Crew: Hollywood After Dark debuts on DVD July 10, with a built-in 'crew' commentary track and live-action interstitials.
On August 7, the second DVD in The Film Crew series arrives in stores. Killers from Space stars Peter Graves (Airplane, Mission Impossible) as a nuclear scientist abducted by aliens to facilitate their invasion of earth. This cult classic features such '50s-era sci-fi favorites as A-bombs, genetically mutated super-sized creepers, and aliens with bugged-out eyes (suspiciously resembling halved ping pong balls).
Additional releases are planned for the fall, with such campy fare Steve Reeve's Giant of Marathon and The Wild Women of Wongo all slated for 2007 release. See previews of these movies getting the Film Crew treatment at www.filmcrewonline.com
