AGFA Collection Vol. I

AGFA Collection Vol. I

ARROW proudly present the AGFA Collection Vol. I, a fine addition to our BAN THIS SICK FILTH season in all the ways we could wish for.

Formed in 2009, the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) is a non-profit company located in Austin, Texas. AGFA exists to preserve the legacy of genre movies through collection, conservation, and distribution. Housing over six thousand film prints, a 4K film scanner, and theatrical and home video distribution arms, AGFA won’t rest until genre movies rule the world! And we couldn't agree with that mission statement more!

In Vol. I you will find the varied and sometimes extreme delights of AGFA all in one collection. Sit back and watch the 90's underground cinema punk attitude of Sarah Jacobson's I WAS A TEENAGE SERIAL KILLER & MARY JANE'S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE; watch how much ass is kicked by Renee Harmon in LADY STREET FIGHTER; the absolute smut-filth of the bizarre BAT PUSSY; the coked-up, horror-snuff insanity of Tom Savini starring EFFECTS; 1971’s sanity-defying “tabloid horror” vortex THE ZODIAC KILLER; THE SWORD AND THE CLAW that is CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle; and last but by no means least, Ed Wood's TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE which will have you wondering why films aren't made like this any more?

Perfect watching for the whole family!!
