‘Ooga Booga’ Trailer and Full Moon Features Delight with 16 Inches of Black Fury and a New Video Streaming Service
This has been a pretty big week for trailers, but while everyone is hootin’ and hollerin’ over Tony Stark’s latest adventure or Greta Gerwig’s dance moves another far greater and somewhat darker trailer has slipped by unnoticed.
And that just won’t stand.
Full Moon Features, the folks behind such classic film series as Puppetmaster, Subspecies and Trancers, have started a new video streaming service focused on their particular brand of horror, laughs and exploitation. GrindhouseFlix offers fans a ridiculously fun selection of movies for $4.99 per month, and while there are only 29 films currently available they’re adding four more per month. Currently available titles include memorable blasts from the past like Dreamaniac, Laserblast, Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death and more.
Check out the trailer below for a glimpse of a brand new title hitting the service this month…
Ha, Karen Black from Trilogy of Terror.
Not that the trailer needs an explanation, but the official plot synopsis is here:
Revenge is served on a spear when dirty cops brutally murder DEVIN, an innocent African-American med student. Devin’s soul is magically transferred into the body of an action figure named OOGA BOOGA. Armed only with his tribal weapon and the help of his old girlfriend, DONNA, Ooga Booga takes to the streets and trailer parks to find the men who stole his bright future away from him. The bodies begin to pile up as Ooga Booga slices and dices his way through crooked cops, meth heads and demented city officials in order to clear his name. Racists beware! You won’t even have enough time to scream, ‘Ooga Booga!’”
Movies can also be rented individually for $1.99 each, but that just seems silly compared to the unlimited monthly rate. Find out more at Full Moon’s official site.
