If you’re a fan of indie horror auteur Todd Sheets, then get ready for a major treat come October.
Sheets’ 1994 SOV horror action tale Moonchild will be released in a special edition Blu-Ray by the team at Visual Vengeance, Wild Eye Releasing’s sister label that focuses on SOV cinema.
In a dystopian future, political prisoner Jacob Stryker is transformed into a werewolf super soldier by government scientists. He escapes captivity and searches for his son, who may be the messiah, and joins an army of karate kicking rebellion fighters poised to overthrow the United Nations of America. Along the way, Jacob is hunted by a group of cyborg and mutant bounty hunters as he tries to forget the bomb implanted in his stomach that’s set to explode in 72 hours. A mind-boggling, sprawling, shot on video horror/ sci-fi/ action/ martial arts epic from SOV fan favorite Todd Sheets (Clownado, Final Caller) that is one of the most ambitious and offbeat low budget movies of the VHS era.
Special features will include:
– First time ever available on Blu-ray
