Never Open the Door Debuts on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD
Vito Trabucco's Homage to "The Twilight Zone" and "Outer Limits"
Available Nationwide December 6th

Maltauro Entertainment in association with Baumant Entertainment has announced the December 6th Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD release of Never Open the Door. Writer-director Vito Trabucco (Bloody Bloody Bible Camp) and writer-producer Christopher Maltauro have created a chilling homage to the twisted and otherworldly tales of the original "Twilight Zone", "Outer Limits" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" series. Never Open the Door will be available to rent or own starting December 6th on Amazon Instant Video and Google Play.

Never Open the Door stars Jessica Sonneborn (Dog Eat Dog, House Across The Street), Kristina Page (The Haunting of Alice D), George Troester ("Face Off") and Deborah Venegas (Bloody Bloody Bible Camp).

Three happy couples retreat to a cozy secluded cabin in the woods to enjoy Thanksgiving. A badly wounded stranger appears at the door, and when they let him in, he throws up blood and collapses on the floor. As he dies, he points towards the lovers and croaks his final words: "Never open the door". The dumbfounded group of friends start to panic as one of their own inexplicably disappears. Doubt rises by the minute and mistrust soaks through the cabin. As strange men surround the cabin, escape becomes paramount. Who will open the door?

New York, NY - Wild Eye Releasing is honored to announce the Collector's Edition DVD, Cable VOD and Digital HD release of The Search for Weng Weng.  The documentary charts the sometimes bizarre history of Filipino B-films, as told through filmmaker Andrew Leavold's personal quest to find the truth behind its dwarf James Bond superstar Weng Weng (For Y'ur Height Only, The Impossible Kid).  Weng Weng took the movie world by storm in the 1970s, and who has since become a viral internet sensation.

Almost a decade ago, Australian trash cinema aficionado Andrew Leavold set off to the Philippines to uncover the true story behind his cinema obsession: the enigmatic Weng Weng, a 2'9" Filipino James Bond.  Over several visits to the Philippines, Leavold manages to piece together Weng Weng's incredible story - packed with pathos, humor and tragedy. 

The Search for Weng Weng lifts the lid on one of the most extraordinary and bizarre national cinemas on the planet, an unforgettable expose of all that is great and wrong about the movie business.  With a cast fill of eccentric characters, from directors to stuntmen to the outrageous Imelda Marcos, this is a remarkable journey deep into the eye of Asia's B-cinema tiger.

Founded by guitarist Mick Jones and fronted by the legendary Joe Strummer, The Clash had the charisma of Elvis, the integrity of The Beatles, and the swagger of The Rolling Stones. Through a series of influential singles and stirring concerts, The Clash not only outlasted their rivals The Sex Pistols but also prospered and broke through in the US of A, a feat matched by no other UK punk-rock band.

With the classic London Calling and revolutionary triple album Sandinista!, The Clash helped popularise both reggae and hip-hop, thereby indoctrinating the record buying public to world music. By 1982, members of The Clash found themselves not only with a hit album (Combat Rock) but also playing opening sets during The Who's first retirement tour. It appeared The Clash would fill this gap. It was not to be. A series of self-inflicted wounds led to a legendary downfall mere months after appearing in front on their largest audience ever at the U.S. Festival in 1983. Strummer and bassist Paul Simonon soldiered on with the underrated Clash, Round Two, but eventually disintegrated under the weight of their manager's mind games.

In The Clash FAQ, author Gary J. Jucha covers the band's inception and emergence in the early British punk scene, all of the studio albums as well as bootlegs, the band's success in the U.S., the lineup shifts, tours, and more. Fresh in its approach and broad in scope, this an essential volume for every fan.
