Good news, horror fans! The 1989 Canadian cult film "Things" was just released on DVD this past week. With a budget of 35,000, the horror flick centers on a husband and wife, Doug and Susan Drake, who are unable to have children. Susan resorts to fertility treatments, resulting in a mutant hatching through her stomach and birthing more baby mutants (or, as our neighbors to the north refer to them, "Things"). This of course results in a whole bunch of hilarious dialogue, a crazy scene involving a chainsaw, a porn star reading the news and much more. Thanks, Canada!
Here's some info about the DVD from the press release:
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.
