DVD NEWS - Synapse Films releasing WIDE OPEN (Starring Christina Lindberg) & FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE on 8/9/11

Two reasons we are digging the hell out of this news from Synapse:

1. When is a new release that features Christina Lindberg NOT on the DG radar?
2. We are always down for some new horror, particularly one with a vintage 80's title.


A Summer of SEX and VIOLENCE!
THRILLER (THEY CALL HER ONE-EYE) star Christina Lindberg in WIDE OPEN, and Alex Pucci's FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE!


Double your late summer fun with two new releases from Synapse Films and Impulse Pictures! Featuring the gorgeous Christina Lindberg in her final screen role in WIDE OPEN. Taxi driver Paul and his beautiful journalist girlfriend Marianne already have a strained relationship when things get crazier by Paul bringing his drunken father back to their apartment. As tensions rise, they decide to chill out at a wild movie party and things go from bad to worse (for Marianne anyway) when they both wake up in bed together with Marianne’s sister, Beryl!

Marianne leaves, so Paul decides to spend some time watching strippers and taking Beryl along for some nighttime fun. Everything is going great, until Beryl gets picked up by the evil Mr. X and things turn dangerous. A stolen mink coat, drugs, and violent sex games lead Paul and Beryl to confront Mr. X during the film’s perverse stag party climax! Gustav Wiklund’s WIDE OPEN (aka Sängkamrater, 1974) stars the breathtaking, buxom Swedish beauty Christina Lindberg alongside her THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE co-star Solveig Andersson. Christina Lindberg's last starring role, the movie pulls no punches and is loaded with tons of Swedish love and shocking sex!


Synapse Films adds to your summer glee with FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE, a new film from the creators of CAMP SLAUGHTER. Sean and his little brother Bobby thought joining the Delta Iota Epsilon fraternity would be the best time of their lives with parties, freedom, girls and sex. The fraternity president Mark (Jon Fleming of TVs WILL & GRACE and DANTE'S COVE), however, is a little strange. His twisted hazing rituals include extreme physical and mental torture that lead the boys down a horrific path of destruction and death. But death may be just the beginning, as this gritty twisted film unfolds. Inspired by actual events and set in the year 1979, FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE is a disturbing journey through the twisted world of fraternity boys, pledges and the not-so-innocent sorority sisters swept up in their madness. Loaded with violence, gore, nudity and a fantastic music score by Goblin's Claudio Simonetti, this is the full-length director's cut containing over twenty minutes of additional footage.
