Is it just me, or does this DVD cover look more like a computer game than a three-film horror film box set? Well, this is the artwork for Anchor Bay's upcoming Creature Triple Feature DVD set, featuring the films Deadly Swarm, Gargoyle's Revenge and Snakehead Terror (all rated 15 - and no, we hadn't heard about any of them before either).
A quick search reveals Deadly Swarm is a killer bee movie made in 2003, Snakehead Terror is a 2004-made killer fish movie and Gargoyle's Revenge deals with winged, fire-spitting creatures. The boxset will be priced at £19.99 and is set to be released on January 24th 2006.
Deadly Swarm Deep in the jungles of Guatemala, an ancient and deadly variety of wasp has been discovered, a creature whose fatally poisonous sting could provide the key to curing cancer.
Unfortunately a rogue scientist unleashes a swarm of the killer wasps on an unsuspecting Mexican village. As the body count mounts, a local entomologist (Shane Brolly) and an investigative reporter (Kaarina Aufranc) uncover the scientist's plot and set about finding and destroying the wasps' nest before it is too late.
Gargoyles' Revenge (aka Gargolye)
A monstrous tale of an age-old evil terrorizing modern day Romania. Michael Paré (BloodRayne; The Virgin Suicides) and Sandra Hess (Mortal Kombat: Annihilation; California Man) star as a pair of CIA agents dispatched to Romania to investigate the kidnapping of an ambassador's son.
But the case takes a bizarre turn when the kidnapper becomes the first victim of a giant flesh-eating gargoyle!
Snakehead Terror Local sheriff Patrick James and beautiful marine biologist Lori Dale face up against a mutant breed of killer Snakehead fish living in the lake of their tourism-dependent community.
With a holiday weekend rapidly approaching, and with the town mayor refusing to close the lake to visitors (Jaws! It's just like Jaws I tell you!), Patrick and Lori are forced to fight against both the town leaders and the deadly fish, who prove to be just as dangerous out of the water as in it!
23rd Mar 04 Forget the Ed Gein movie – this is where its at. Deranged is darkly hilarious but also deeply disturbing account of the nefarious activities of the same person, but is executed with much more skill than the Ed Gein movie.
