There’s always room for a new exploitation-flick DVD label: the valley of cult cinema is as wide as it deep and we need all the brave souls we can muster to plumb its depths and unearth all the hidden treasures. Film biz vet Larry Gold III is the latest to answer the DVD call and has announced his new Intervision Picture Corporation label. This Thailand-based company plans to hit the ground running in 2011 and has announced a quartet of titles for release in the year to come. Read on for all the digital-schlock details…
INTERVISION PICTURE CORPORATION TO OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN JANUARY
Legendary Indie Shocker ‘The Secret Life: Jeffrey Dahmer’, First New Jess Franco Film In Years Slated As Maiden Releases
San Francisco, CA/Bangkok, Thailand – November 15, 2010 – The newly created Intervision Picture Corporation, featuring several longtime veterans of the home video scene, today announced it was rolling out its aggressive schedule of Cult and Exploitation releases starting this January.
Bangkok-based Intervision Picture Corp. has just inked a deal with distribution/manufacturing mainstay CAV to handle solicitation and physical distribution.
First releases are both helmed by recent Goya Award Winner Jess Franco. The Sinister Eyes of Dr. Orloff, a long-thought-lost classic from 1971, was finally unearthed in a Budapest vault following an exhaustive international search. Orloff will be paired with Paula-Paula, the most acclaimed Jess Franco film in over two decades.
Intervision Picture Corporation has also just announced the acquisition of the seminal serial killer study The Secret Life: Jeffrey Dahmer, along with two of the greatest Ozploitation entries of the 1970s – Australia After Dark and The ABCs of Love and Sex.
The deal was negotiated by Larry Gold Sr., Founder and CEO on behalf of Intervision Picture Corporation, and Jay Douglas, Vice President of Product Development on behalf of CAV.
CAV’s Douglas said, “Larry Gold is one of the few true legends of the video industry and we are thrilled to bring his latest and greatest brand to the CAV stable.”
Intervision Picture Corporation’s Gold added, “When I decided I was getting the band back together and putting out a new line, Jay was the first person I called. CAV and Intervision both are in the midst of new, exciting ventures, and I look forward to the partnership.”
Gold, an early leader in the world of VHS distribution, has an impressive resume stretching back to the early 1960s, when he founded the London-based Solid Gold Films Ltd. Long thought retired to his estate in Southeast Asia, Gold cited “the need to get quality pictures back on the shelves” as his chief reason for getting back into distribution.
“I’ve still got the rights to over 850 films across all formats – and I intend to exercise them in a manner that will result in classy, special-features-laden releases crafted for the discriminating picturegoer. Film distribution has gotten a bit off its bearings as of late, and we at Intervision Picture Corporation intend to bring back a little of the way things used to be.”
