Horror Anthologies German Angst & A Taste of Phobia Coming to DVD/Blu-ray & VOD

Horror Anthologies German Angst & A Taste of Phobia Coming to DVD/Blu-ray & VOD


PHILADELPHIA, PA - Artsploitation Films will release two eye-popping horror anthologies on June 26th. Fourteen different directors peer into the twisted and often self-violent world of phobias in A Taste of Phobia. Also, on that date will be a special-featured-packed Blu-ray release of German Angst. Love and sex has never been portrayed as so depraved and disturbing as seen by three controversial underground filmmakers, the legendary Jörg Buttgereit (Nekromantik(1987); Andreas Marschall (Tears of Kali (2004); and Michal Kosakowski (Zero Killed (2014). Note: German Angst is a Blu-ray re-issue, as the film has been out on Blu-ray previously. But the original release was a barebones Blu-ray-R while this Artsploitation Films release will be of the highest HD quality and will contain many bonus features.

Did you ever look up at the stars and realize how small and insignificant that you really are and start to question your own existence? You might have Astrophobia. How about standing in the voting booth and making a decision on the next political election when an insurmountable amount of panic takes you over. You probably have Politicophobia. Each deranged segment magnifies a specific phobia and proves that people can be afraid of just about anything including dreaming, bacteria, cooking, darkness, blood, medication even young virgins.

A Blood Splattered Angel Descends To Artsploitation To Deliver Snowflake
 
A humorously violent screenplay turns into a fantastic fairy tale come to life
 
For Immediate Release

Artsploitation Films has acquired the U.S. rights to SNOWFLAKE, The Most Fucked Up German Fairy Tale  Since The Brothers Grimm.  Produced by Lopta Films, Ventaro Films, and Movie Stuff Pictures, it's a non-stop roller coaster ride with more twists and turns than you can imagine. Directed by Adolfo Kolmerer and William James, the film is scheduled to be released in the later half of 2018.

SNOWFLAKE - In an odd twist of fate, Tan and Javid find themselves living out a bizarre screenplay page by violent page.  While hunting down the murderer of their families, their reality turns topsy turvy when they read of their own untimely deaths and realize this screenplay is coming true.  It's a race against the clock and the written word to find the author of their demise and change their destiny.  This mission of survival is met with a cavalcade of the fantastic characters being thrust into their world - assassins, madmen, an electric powered superhero, a blood splattered angel, oh my!   This cool German Import is the ultimate spitting blood, kicking ass fairy tale that will get your thinking and keep you thinking a long time after.

“Bizarre and unpredictable, Snowflake has a plot seemingly written by a mad dadaist. I wanted to re-watch the film the moment it ended. Its original story and its bouts of action and super violence make this a treat for all adventurous genre film-lovers.”  - Artsploitation President, Ray Murray

Artsploitation Overcomes its Gamophobia to Acquire EuroObscura’s A Taste of Phobia

 Artsploitation Overcomes its Gamophobia to Acquire EuroObscura’s A Taste of Phobia
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PHILADELPHIA, PA, March 7, 2018 -  Artsploitation has acquired the U.S. and Canadian rights to EuroObscura’s A Taste of Phobia, a harrowing horror anthology created by 14 international directors. Produced by Vestra Pictures and Enchanted Architect, in collaboration with Trash Art Pictures, the film is scheduled for DVD and VOD release in May 2018.

Of the multitude of fears, A Taste of Phobia delves into some of the weirdest and wildest, each with its own bloody twist. Presenting 14 unnerving segments, featured phobias include caetophobia (fear of hairs), henophobia (fear of young virgin girls), coprophobia (fear of feces), mysophobia (fear of contamination and germs), mazeophobia (fear of being lost), astrophobia (fear of celestial objects), mageirocophobia (fear of cooking) and oneirophobia (fear of dreams).

“As someone with a high number of phobias myself -- fear of ceiling fans and hotel remotes to name just two -- I was hesitant to watch A Taste of Phobia. But after 90 minutes of seeing people traumatized, institutionalized and dying from their fears, I felt much better,” said Artsploitation President, Raymond Murray. “It’s a cinematic colonic for a sick mind and a must for Artsploitation fans.”

A Taste of Phobia combines the talents of directors known for making a bloody good splash such as James Quinn (The Law of Sodom), Sam Mason Bell (The Making Of), Jason Impey (Home Made), Alessandro Redaelli (P.O.E. 3), Chris Milewski (Welcome to the World, Dear Child), Alessandro Giordani (L'insonne: Ouverture) and Domiziano Cristopharo (Virus: Extreme ContaminationDark Waves).

 “We are proud that Artsploitation will be releasing this great and scary horror movie in the U.S.,” said Marco Magni, international sales representative for EuroObscura. “I’m sure that the fans of horror movies in America will enjoy it and will also be surprised to learn about the more strange and terrifying kind of phobias that exist in the world.”
