Two weeks later on September 9, Camp unleashes MURDERDROME, an Australian production combining demonic/slasher tropes and roller derby, featuring real-life champs of the sport and a punk-rock soundtrack. The story concerns a derby sensation named Cherry Skye who accidentally raises a hellish murderess, leading to a confrontation in the titular arena. Directed and co-written by Daniel Armstrong and starring Amber Sajben, B on the Rocks, Jake Brown, Kat Anderson, Cyndi Lawbreaker and Rachael Blackwood, MURDERDROME will be accompanied on the DVD by five music videos, a gag reel and a trailer vault.
Finally, Camp has just acquired DRY BONES, the latest feature from SLIME CITY maestro Gregory Lamberson. Debbie Rochon stars in this horror/comedy about a man who returns to the home where he was terrorized by a monster under his bed as a child, and discovers that it’s still present and claiming the lives of his friends. The DVD and digital release is scheduled for October 14, with disc special features to be announced soon. Retail prices on the DVDs will be $19.98 each.
