AGFA Film Fest
3 Blu Rays and 2 DVDs of from our friends at AGFA. This set includes:
SATANIS: THE DEVIL’S MASS + SATAN’S CHILDREN (Blu Ray)
A double feature from the depths of hell, newly preserved in 2K from AGFA + Something Weird! SATANIS is the unseen and unbelievable exposé on Anton LaVey, America’s favorite leader of the Church of Satan. Feeling like a bedtime story as told by Kenneth Anger and Russ Meyer, this is a wild glimpse into the witches, black masses, and sex lives that built San Francisco’s most infamous cult. SATAN’S CHILDREN is an Afterschool Special from depths of hell . . . literally. A truly deranged gut-punch, this is a gritty and baffling “experience” that could have only happened in Florida.
WAKALIWOOD SUPA ACTION VOLUME 1 (Blu Ray)
Welcome to Wakaliwood, Uganda: home of “DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” and the vanguards of DIY commando cinema! Under the guidance of writer-director-producer Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey (IGG) and with producer-star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, this crack crew of self-taught filmmakers and martial arts aficionados produce dozens of gonzo action films in the Kampala ghetto with budgets that rarely exceed $200 USD. Utilizing scrap parts to build computers, machine guns, and a full-sized Huey helicopter, these real-life superheroes inspire more heart, imagination, and soul than a thousand Hollywood blockbusters.
BLOOD LAKE (DVD)
BLOOD LAKE is the most fascinating — and stupefying — shot-on-video slasher that ever escaped from 1987. Made by real-life friends from Oklahoma on a real-life vacation, BLOOD LAKE is a rewardingly lethal collision of ’80s slasher video-vomit and twisted cinéma vérité madness. From false metal soundtrack hits to gratuitous scenes of people sleeping, this might be the only movie in history capable of receiving a stamp of approval from both David Lee Roth and Andy Warhol.
TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE (Blu Ray)
There will never be another hero like Ed Wood (PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, GLEN OR GLENDA). And there will never be another movie like TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE. Unseen for almost fifty years, this is a surreal sexploitation comedy that would feel right at home on a triple-bill with John Waters’s MULTIPLE MANIACS and Russ Meyer’s THE IMMORAL MR. TEAS. With delirious narration by Wood himself, positive depictions of LGBTQ relationships, and a miraculous role by Ed Wood in drag as ”Alecia,” TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE is a joyous swan song from one of the most seminal exploitation filmmakers of all time.
NINJA ZOMBIE (DVD)
Black vest. No shirt. No fear. NO RULES!! Shot on Super 8 in Chicago and never released on any format, NINJA ZOMBIE is an unrelenting ruckus of supernatural threats and high-kicking vengeance. If you’ve ever wished for a mutant mix of THE TOXIC AVENGER, 1980s Marvel Comics, and a 12-year-old’s unfiltered imagination, prepare to meet your new favorite movie. AGFA and Bleeding Skull! are proud to bring NINJA ZOMBIE to a new generation of fans — complete with a slew of limb-ripping extras.

Gregory Blackstock Gift Basket
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.
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.
Greg has kindly offered a gift basket of items featuring his work for our auction, including
