THE RAVAGER and THE BUSHWHACKER represent the last hurrah for
rough and tumble 60s style sexploitation before hardcore sex films
completely took over the market. These two films are basically the
last gasp, the final push on the envelope towards more extreme,
horror-oriented fare, and in this they were perhaps too extreme for
the raincoat brigade. After their brief theatrical runs, both
disappeared for decades until unearthed by Something Weird Video in
THE RAVAGER was the brainchild of Belgian cinematic
weirdo Charles Nizet, whose life was as bizarre as any film he made.
But THE RAVAGER is perhaps his craziest movie, and stars Pierre
Agostino, a regular in the films of Ray Dennis Steckler from the
same period, as a PTSD stricken Vietnam vet with a peculiar kink for
peeking on couples making love and then blowing them to smithereens
with homemade bombs.
THE BUSHWHACKER was made by longtime exploitation
maven Byron Mabe, who directed the classic SHE-FREAK. After their
plane goes down somewhere in the deserts of the American southwest,
a party of one alpha male and three lusty ladies are pursued through
the wilds by an insane, coonskin-cap-wearing killer with an
insatiable taste for female flesh.
American Arcana is proud to present these unique
exploitation films on Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the
world, uncut and taken from the best available elements straight
from the Something Weird Archives.
