Three Gorgeous Blu Rays From AGFA
Lady Street Fighter, Godmonster of Indian Flats, and The Sword and the Claw plus personalized movie recommendations from AGFA.
3 Blu Rays from our friends at AGFA. This set includes
Lady Street Fighter
Written and produced by exploitation demigod Renee Harmon (FROZEN SCREAM) and directed by the legendary James Bryan (DON’T GO IN THE WOODS), LADY STREET FIGHTER is a joyous blast of no-holds-barred chaos from one of the most important female filmmakers in genre history. AGFA’s stellar new 2K preservation is now available on Blu-ray and jam-packed with extras, including a new 2K preservation of the never-before-released sequel, REVENGE OF LADY STREET FIGHTER.
Godmonster of Indian Flats
Written and directed by infamous outsider artist Fredric C. Hobbs (ALABAMA’S GHOST), GODMONSTER OF INDIAN FLATS is the story of an eight-foot-tall toxic sheep monster that blows up gas stations, smashes crooked politicians, and terrorizes children! AGFA and Something Weird’s beautiful new 4K preservation is now available on Blu-ray and jam-packed with extras, including a new 2K preservation of the equally deranged THE LEGEND OF BIGFOOT.
The Sword and the Claw
Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend Cüneyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle.
And, as a bonus, Joe Ziemba, Director of AGFA & Genre Programming & Promotions, will provide the winning bidder with personalized movie recommendations.

Rare and Delightful Work by Gregory Blackstock
Limited Edition Poster – “40 Memorable Seattle Joys To Go For”
Seattle native Gregory Blackstock, who is autistic, supported himself from his late teens working menial jobs such as paper carrier, janitor, and dishwasher. He started creating his distinctive catalog style drawings in his early 40s, but he was nearly 58 years old before they were brought to the attention of a local art dealer and he had his first solo show soon thereafter. Today his work is held by museums, important collection, and individuals throughout the world. A book of his early work was published in 2006.
Besides his art and playing the accordion for whomever will listen, Blackstock finds incredible joy in watching his favorite movies again and again. Early Disney animated films, Sean Connery’s James Bond, wildlife adventure shows from the early 60s are special favorites and he can – and will – recite all the parts from 1963’s It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, often startling fellow bus passengers. Naturally, over the years, he has been a frequent Scarecrow customer.
It was a tremendous honor in 2010 for this self-taught artist to be asked to create original art to be used for Bumbershoot’s 40th anniversary. Blackstock titled the drawing “40 Memorable Seattle Joys to Go For” and it features iconic Seattle scenes drawn in the artist’s compelling style.
This rare poster was only available for sale inside the festival grounds during Bumbershoot weekend in 2010 and is not to be found in the secondary marketplace.
