Hotter Than Hell: Sweatshop to hit DVD

About time this hit DVD in the States. It's definitely another movie I will be adding to my ever-growing list of "to see" flicks.
SWEATSHOP, director Stacy Davidson's ode to classic slashers that has wowed the festival circuit for the past two years, finally comes to North American DVD on September 13th, courtesy Screen Media Films!
In SWEATSHOP, Charlie (Ashley Kay) and her friends break into an abandoned warehouse to set up the biggest rave they've ever thrown. Little do they know, an enormous, hulking beast (playing by newcomer Jeremy Sumrall) lurks in the shadows - filled with rage and brandishing a pulverizing foundry hammer. It isn't long before the kids are in a fight for their lives against this behemoth and his ghoulish minions, who will stop at nothing to snuff them out, one-by-one.

Packed with the latest industrial music by Android Lust and Lucid Dementia, featuring a sexy cast of up-and-coming talent (including Psychic Experiment's Peyton Wetzel and The Final's Julin), and featuring jaw-dropping special effects by Oddtopsy FX - SWEATSHOP is more than just an homage to the slasher films of the 70s and 80s that inspired it. It's a bloodsoaked love letter to the trashy, ultra-violent cinema of yesteryear.

Screen Media's unrated DVD features a packed photo gallery, art gallery, and filmmakers' commentary, as well as a special edition motion comic illustrated by Thomas Mason (Freddy vs Jason vs Ash) which gruesome reveals the fate of one of the film's characters prior to the events in the movie.

SWEATSHOP stars Ashley Kay, Peyton Wetzel, Melanie Donihoo, Julin, Brent D. Himes, Danielle Jones, Krystal Freeman, Naika Malveux, Vincent Guerrero, Jeremy Sumrall, and ViVi Sterling.

SWEATSHOP is being released UNRATED in the USA.

Contains adult language, extreme graphic violence, and nudity.

Feature runtime: 87 minutes.
