Intervision blasted into the consciousness of many with their recent improbably feature-loaded release of the shot-on-video brain-blaster SLEDGEHAMMER. Without allowing much of a breather for lovers of curious cinema, Intervision is gearing up for the one-two punch of THINGS and SECRET LIFE: JEFFREY DAHMER to be unleashed into the wild via DVD on 7/12.

In their press release, Intervision has this to say about THINGS: "In 1989, it became the first Canadian shot-on-Super 8 gore shocker commercially released on VHS. Today, it remains perhaps the most bizarre, depraved and mind-boggling chunk of ‘Canuxploitaion’ ever unleashed upon humanity. Adult film superstar Amber Lynn and co-writer/producer Barry J. Gillis star in this surreal saga about two friends who visit a remote cabin, only to discover a womb of monstrous horror that demands graphic dismemberment. It’s an inexplicable orgy of eye ripping, beer guzzling, boob baring, skull drilling, sandwich making, chain sawing, bad acting and post-sync dubbing from co-writer/producer/director Andrew Jordan that has spawned its own disturbing cult of fans. Some will be repulsed. Others may be transformed forever. But you have never seen anything like THINGS."

The impressive feature list for the THINGS DVD are:

-Audio Commentary With Director Andrew Jordan And Stars Barry J. Gillis, Jan W. Pachul And Doug Bunston
-Audio Viewing Party With The Cinefamily
-Testimonials On THINGS: All-New Interviews With Tobe Hooper (THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE), Jason Eisener And Rob Cotterill (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN), Creator Paul Corupe, Joseph A. Ziemba And Dan Budnik Of Bleeding Skull, And More!
-THINGS 20th Anniversary Cast And Crew Reunion
-Behind The Scenes With Star Amber Lynn
-Vintage Barry J. Gillis TV Appearances
-Original Trailers

As if that wasn't enough awesome genre content, Intervision will also be releasing THE SECRET LIFE: JEFFREY DAHMER on DVD the same day. Again from the press release: "The shocking assaults. The grisly murders. The horrific story you only thought you knew: Carl Crew (BLOOD DINER) stars as infamous sex offender, serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, whose 14 year odyssey of evil continues to shock the world. Take a graphic trip inside the mind of a madman, from his sick fantasies and inner torments to his gruesome experiments anddepraved ‘souvenirs’. This is the still-controversial film directed by David R. Bowen – and produced two years before Dahmer was beaten to death in prison – whose release outraged the media, the victims’ families and the public, yetremains acclaimed as an uncompromising portrait of the monster behind the headlines."

Features on this disc are:

-Audio Commentary With Director David R. Bowen And Star Carl Crew
-Original Trailer

I haven't seen either of these films but you better believe that once I get my hands on them (and I'm super excited to do so) I'll be bringing you full reviews of each. In the meantime, if you haven't picked up SLEDGEHAMMER yet, I highly recommend doing so to keep yourself entertained until Intervision's next mind assault on July 12th!
