Olive Films has been making some interesting choices in films to distribute recently. Their new partnership with Slasher Video, for example, means they’ll be distributing some truly obscure shot-on-video horror films from the 80s and 90s.

Zombies From Outer Space

Zombies From Outer Space

First off, this movie is a lot weirder than the title implies.  Done in the style of a 1950’s horror movie, Zomies from Outer Space is about a race of dome-headed aliens who come to Earth and start turning humans into zombies as part of their plan to conquer the planet.  Presumably, once the humans […]
