If You Like Dark-Genre Films Darkside Releasing Has The Answer

There is a dark, independent cinema that has always had a fan base and now the company Darkside Releasing is here with some releases that may interest you.
Not so long ago, a meeting of the minds came together. Darkside Releasing -on their Facebook page-had asked for anyone that was into Genre films that wanted in on a certain idea that they had come up with to contact them.
I did just that and after a few messages, a phone call and some more emails, Vince D'Amato and myself did the digital handshake and I can tell you what that is.
Through this deal I will be able to now sell the films that they have selected for purchase through this website. All of the links supplied below have been created by Darkside Releasing and the purchase links are through Paypal, just so you know they are from trusted sites that have been in business for years now.

I met Vince many years ago at Badass Film Festival 2 , he was at a table with some business cards and t-shirts and we had a quick visit-he was quite busy.
We are friends and now colleagues in an effort to get you to buy these films we now have available.
Where does it benefit me? Well , with each purchase that you make from my website I will get a portion of the sales over the course of a few months.

The films displayed here I have not seen yet, but Vince has sent me copies of the films for me to do so.
These movies are not for everyone, that goes without saying. But for those of you who are please allow me to introduce you to the world of 

                    DARKSIDE  RELEASING

"Fucking brilliant... the last thing that I expected was to laugh as much as I did. Chock full of gals, guns and pure excitement, it’s got all the red stuff you could ask for... Believe me, there is nothing out there like Amazon Hot Box and there never will be. This is pure fun made for the movie going audience that rarely gets this kind of treat. Its blend of humour and sleaze is both exciting and charming… don’t miss your chance to see your favourite movie of 2018."  ~ Blaine McLaren | The Farsighted Blog

Next on the list is 
Horror | 95 min. | CAN | 2009


Yesterday follows the lives of six complete strangers in the middle of a zombie outbreak! As each person struggles to survive, their actions begin to have repercussions around the dying city, which culminates in a stand-off at the local grocery store.  There, the remaining few decide to band together and flee to the wilderness.  Once camp is built however, they find that the living dead are not their only danger as they begin to turn on one another in a struggle for power and control.

Rob Grant, the director of the 2018 cult festival hit Fake Blood, shot Yesterday on 16mm film in 2009. This, his first horror feature, had also become a hit on the genre festival circuit, channelling the wild, over-the-top energy, gore, and cult film sensibilities of J.R. Bookwalter’s The Dead Next Door and Lief Jonker’s Darkness!

Darkside Releasing is extremely proud to present Rob Grant’s apocalyptic zombie gore-fest on Home Video for the first time – anywhere!

Inspired by the sensual and violent world of Italian giallo films, Glass tells the tale of a young couple, Mike and Zarana, who decide to cut themselves off from social media and remain in their glass-walled apartment overlooking their city. Anxiety, paranoia, violence, and murder follows.

Starlet Tirra Dent (Demons in the Dark; The Evil in Us) plays Zarana, a woman consumed by paranoia and rabid nightmares after she witnesses her neighbor’s murder. Soon, she finds herself relentlessly stalked by the enigmatic killer. 

Set and shot in the “glass jungle” of Vancouver’s gentrified neighborhoods, Glass is a scathing critique of social media and the middle- and lower-class societies. 

Glass was an international film festival hit in 2016, even landing in one critic’s “Top 15 of the year” list. 2016 film festival winner for Best Feature Film, Best Music (two wins), Best Actress – Tirra Dent (one win, additional nomination).

“The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue meets Nymphomaniac!” – The Delirious Cinema 

Darkside Releasing is proud to present two of Italian director Andreas Marfori's (Evil Clutch, Evil Clutch 2) latest genre films!

In SOVIET ZOMBIE INVASION, a group of young adults head outside of Moscow to explore the dilapidated remains of the city's industrial complex, only to discover the dead, rotting secrets hidden within its walls... and they soon find themselves the subjects of their own terrifying discoveries!

Meanwhile, in THE UNFORTUNATE LIFE OF GEORGINA SPELVIN CHAINED TO A RADIATOR, the titular woman in question heads into the city for a clandestine rendezvous with an online mate – only to become one of the city's unwilling victims of torture and depravity.

Content Warning: Extreme Gore and Sexualized Violence


This double-shot of Italian auteur Andreas Marfori exemplifies the filmmakers' take on society's fears within the post-authoritarian cultures of Eastern Europe.

I thank Vince for allowing me to take part in this and please be aware as I had mentioned at the beginning of this post these films are not for everyone. This is just some more of my support for the Independent movie cinema. Blockbusters already get enough attention all on their own.
I will continue to support the independent artists, filmmakers etc!

Thank you for reading this
