"Any thing they want... they take!"

A group of traveling mercenaries set stakes in a small Mexican border town where they start up a training camp. These are some seriously bad dudes (as one unlucky biker gang finds out). The mercs come across a young hippie couple on their way to nowhere in particular. After spending some time with them one of the soldiers starts to take a liking to pretty young girl. When he makes his less than good intentions known, the other soldiers get jealous and are soon locked in vicious contest to see who gets to force himself on the unwilling captive. And it just gets weirder from there! An incredibly rare and rarely seen gem of early 70's trash cinema. NEVER RELEASED ON VIDEO!

Co-presented by Code Red DVD

Mark Sawicki supervises and brings his "monster" for one of our upcoming titles!

Mark Sawicki, a well-established spfx expert in Hollywood, was kind enough to come in and help us supervise a telecine of a cult monster film he did many years ago, and he even brought the monster with him! We found the only surviving 16mm elements of this 1980 monster film (it was shot in 16mm) and we did a new 16x9 widescreen 1:78 transfer (as requested by the director) mastered in Hi-Def! We will be doing an audio commentary with Mark, Chris Huntley, and the elusive director coming soon. We will also include 6 short films they have done in USC. This is a rare, cool 80's monster flick you should definitely check out. Don't be afraid. It's only a movie. We are shooting for a August 18th street date.
