FULL MOON SUBLABEL WIZARD STUDIOS ANNOUNCES FIRST 3 FILMS: Charles Band and Full Moon launch new distribution label for independent horror and genre filmmakers, First three titles: VAMPIE, VIRGINIA OBSCURA and VILLANELLE.

January 14th, 2014 - From the fevered mind of maverick cult movie mogul and Full Moon Features President Charles Band comes the triumphant return of the brand that first brought oddball shock to your living room: Wizard Studios presents a triple shot of indie shock!
WIZARD Studios is an evolution of Band’s iconic WIZARD Video label, the home video imprint that blazed trails in the early 1980’s, bringing the world’s weirdest horror, fantasy and exploitation films to audiences everywhere via big box rental and sell-through VHS. Now, inspired in part by the unprecedented success of Band’s Full Moon Streaming initiative (www.FullMoonStreaming.com), WIZARD Video has been reborn, this time as WIZARD Studios, an exciting acquisition program and distribution outfit designed to spotlight rising independent filmmakers and their cutting-edge genre pictures.
After receiving a staggering level of submissions since the announcement in December 2013, the WIZARD team have screened all of them and are proud to announce the movies selected for the first wave of release, including:

VAMPIE (Dir:Melissa Tracy and Markus Innocenti, premiering February 14th, 2014)
By far the most far-out of the inaugural WIZARD lineup is filmmaker/actress Ming Ballard’s deranged and hilarious horror comedy VAMPIE, in which a neurotic vampire named Azure (played by Ballard) betrays her allergy to blood by finding sustenance in the plasma pastry of the title. Ballard is said to be the first Asian-American woman to star in and produce her own film with widespread distribution.

VIRGINIA OBSCURA (Dir: Toby Osborne, premiering February 21st, 2014)
Director Toby Osborne’s art-house slasher mystery is a contemporary giallo and stars the legendary Linnea Quigley (who also stars in Full Moon’s new upcoming web series TROPHY HEADS) and rising scream queen Jessica Cameron in a dreamy, sleazy low budget gem of voyeuristic terror.

VILLANELLE (Dir.Rick Laprade, premiering February 28th, 2014)
This jet black and atmospheric shocker is a masterclass in making a massive impact with very little money and plenty of style. In it, an alcoholic detective gets sucked into a nightmarish world when he finds a girl, nearly dead and with dark secrets that slowly alter his perceptions of his own reality.

All three films will premiere EXCLUSIVELY at http://www.FullMoonStreaming.com/ with select DVD releases soon to follow.

“We’re incredibly excited to re-launch Wizard Studios as a portal to spotlight the best in new genre filmmaking talent,” said Full Moon Features and Wizard Studios founder and president, Charles Band.
“These first three films offer the kind of go-for-broke indie spirit that we at Full Moon have forever championed. Each one stretches their respective budgets and offer the kind of weird, witty and out-there aesthetic that the mainstream just cannot and will never deliver. I can’t wait for fans to check them out!”

WIZARD Studios is an interactive distribution initiative in which fans and filmmakers support each other. Visit http://www.FullMoonStreaming.com/wizard for details on how you can submit your film and be part of the new WIZARD Studios cinema streaming and distribution program!
WIZARD STUDIOS: A CLASSIC BRAND. EXCITING NEW MOVIES.
—————-
For over four delirious decades, filmmaker Charles Band has steadily pumped out a dizzying wealth of some of cinema’s weirdest and wildest horror, fantasy and exploitation genre movies with his iconic labels “Empire Pictures” and “Full Moon Features.” Along the way he has nurtured and enabled such talents as Stuart Gordon, Barbara Crampton, David Schmoeller, Demi Moore, Michael Pataki, Helen Hunt, Viggo Mortensen, Christopher Lee, Tim Thomerson, John Carl Buechler, Don Mancini, Timothy Van Patton, Jeffrey Combs, Michael Moriarty, Andrew Prine, Klaus Kinski, Sherilyn Fenn and hundreds upon hundreds of others in films as beloved as TOURIST TRAP, RE-ANIMATOR, GHOULIES, DOLLS, FROM BEYOND, PARASITE, PUPPETMASTER, SUBSPECIES, HEAD OF THE FAMILY and THE GINGERDEAD MAN. Many of these pictures are considered bona fide classics and some even cited as landmark dark fantasy entertainments.

Empire of the ‘B’s, the brand new officially authorized history of the legendary cult film studio Empire Pictures, is now for sale!

The first 100 copies of the book will be signed and numbered by Empire Pictures/Full Moon Features founder Charles Band!

The ‘Pulse-pounding’ saga of the Charles Band Empire…

Charles Robert Band is one of the last great B-movie survivors–a genuine pioneer who, over four decades, forged such a unique path through the no man’s land of independent genre cinema that many thought him more than capable of seizing legendary producer Roger Corman’s long-held crown as ‘King of the B-movies’. The 1970s through to the late 1980s was the last great ‘golden age’ for the B-movie community, and with a non-stop series of grindhouse classics like Laserblast, Parasite, Re-Animator and Dolls for his own company Empire Pictures, it was the era that saw Charles Band take his rightful place in the indie hall of fame as Emperor of the ‘B’s.

Full Moon presents Delirium Magazine!

A Brand New, Bi-Monthly, FULL COLOR Cult, Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy PRINT Magazine that scours true tales from the legendary Full Moon archives…and beyond.

January 7th, 2014 - For over four delirious decades, filmmaker Charles Band has steadily pumped out a dizzying wealth of some of cinema’s weirdest and wildest horror, fantasy and exploitation genre movies with his iconic labels “Empire Pictures” and “Full Moon Features.” Along the way he has nurtured and enabled such talents as Stuart Gordon, Barbara Crampton, David Schmoeller, Demi Moore, Michael Pataki, Helen Hunt, Viggo Mortensen, Christopher Lee, Tim Thomerson, John Carl Buechler, Don Mancini, Timothy Van Patton, Jeffrey Combs, Michael Moriarty, Andrew Prine, Klaus Kinski, Sherilyn Fenn and hundreds upon hundreds of others in films as beloved as TOURIST TRAP, RE-ANIMATOR, GHOULIES, DOLLS, FROM BEYOND, PARASITE, PUPPETMASTER, SUBSPECIES, HEAD OF THE FAMILY and THE GINGERDEAD MAN. Many of these pictures are considered bona fide classics and some even cited as landmark dark fantasy entertainments, but all are fascinating works of bizarre pop art, each one a story with dozens of sub-stories to be told.

But to tell them all would require space to do so.

Band’s universe, and the storied alumni that reside within, is so dense with history, you could make a magazine and never run out of material.

So…that’s exactly what we did.

Announcing “Full Moon presents DELIRIUM,” a breathless, bold, bloody, beautiful, brainy and ballistic bi-monthly 21-gun-pulp-fiction-salute print periodical dedicated to exploring and celebrating the uninhibited joy of making outrageous movies while high-fiving the fevered audiences who just can’t seem to get enough of that far-out stuff…

Published by Band, produced by the Full Moon Features team and edited by filmmaker, film journalist and FANGORIA Magazine EIC Chris Alexander, DELIRIUM is a passionate work of lurid wonder, jam-packed with exclusive interviews, bizarre stories, garish photos from Band’s expansive and foreboding vaults (many of which have never, ever, EVER been seen before), posters, retrospectives, special FX make-up secrets, laughs, shocks, thrills and chills. DELIRIUM aims to chart indie horror and fantasy’s secret history using the Empire/Full Moon/Band legacy as the foundation but then careening madly into unexpected directions.

“I couldn’t be more excited about DELIRIUM,” says Full Moon founder and President Charles Band.

“2014 is going to be an exciting year for us here at Full Moon and the birth of DELIRIUM magazine is a big part of that. The wealth of material we have at our fingertips, the hundreds of films we’ve produced, the rare stills, rarer interviews and support of our celebrated creative alumni will serve as the backbone for what we hope will become a thrilling new addition to the cult film magazine universe.”

The limited edition ISSUE #1 features a cover story on Band’s immortal, 1985 Stuart Gordon directed masterpiece RE-ANIMATOR, featuring massive new interviews with Gordon, Barbara Crampton, composer Richard Band, actress Carolyn Purdy-Gordon and many others and is jammed with gory, gorgeous photos, including a crazy cool centerfold poster! Elsewhere in DELIRIUM #1 you’ll find an exclusive chat with actress Celeste Yarnall on her signature role in 1971’s THE VELVET VAMPIRE, an ongoing column called “Bring Me the Head of Stuart Gordon,” an in-depth examination of the 1979 shocker TOURIST TRAP plus a peek at the brand new indie horror films from the rebirthed WIZARD Studios line and so much more!

DELIRIUM will be published 6 times a year and WILL NOT BE SOLD ON NEWSSTANDS.

The only way you can get your clammy mitts on this exciting new magazine is to SUBSCRIBE today at DeliriumMagazine.com.  Individual issues will be available to order online, as well.  Or come pick up a copy in person at the Full Moon booth at one of the near 200 fan conventions we’ll be appearing at nationwide!
