GARAGEHOUSE PICTURES RELEASE ‘MONSTROSITY’ & ‘THE WEIRDO’ ON BLU-RAY

Garagehouse Pictures have released two films by legendary grindhouse auteur Andy Milligan on Blu-ray this December.

For many years, much of the work of Andy Milligan has been unavailable, out-of-print or lost, but lately there’s been a resurgence of interest, thanks in large part to Jimmy McDonough’s exemplary biography, The Ghastly One.

Often maligned and misunderstood by critics and genre movie fans alike, the films of the “Gutter Auteur” have been gaining interest, and Garagehouse Pictures is proud to offer two of Milligan’s final features in HD for the first time ever. These robust special edition Blu-ray releases not only serve as the definitive versions of MONSTROSITY and THE WEIRDO, but also offer an exhaustive in-depth look at one of cinemas strangest fringe characters.

MONSTROSITY

Synopsis (from the Blu-ray disc jacket):

THE BRAIN OF A CHILD.  THE BODY OF A GIANT.  THE POWER OF AN APE.  
ALL PROGRAMMED TO KILL!

After his girlfriend is viciously beaten and murdered by a group of savage L.A. street goons, a med student and his two pals create a modern day ‘Golem’ from human and animal cadavers, and revive it to take revenge. But they get more than they bargained for when Frankie, their half-human, half-witted creature, meets Jamie, a goofy street girl, and falls in love. Soon Frankie is forced to put his killer training to the test as he goes on a Schwarzenegger/Stallone-inspired rampage against the city’s criminals armed with a machine gun and a headband.

Never before available in HD, Garagehouse Pictures is proud to bring grindhouse auteur Andy Milligan’s punk rock Frankenstein to life on Blu-ray. Packed with special features, this release includes almost two hours of previously unseen outtakes and two commentaries by The Ghastly One author Jimmy McDonough!

THE WEIRDO

Synopsis (from the Blu-ray disc jacket):

WHY CAN’T EVERYONE BE NICE TO ONE ANOTHER?

How much torment can a young man take?  Donny (Steve Burington) is a shy loner who would like nothing more than to be left alone, but his life is little more than endless abuse and harassment. Abandoned by his family, bullied tirelessly by the local roughnecks, Donny seeks refuge in the ramshackle shed in which he lives and lonely walks in the woods. One day Donny meets Jenny (Jessica Straus), a young girl with troubles of her own who sympathizes with Donny, and the two begin an innocent romance. Donny’s life seems to brighten for one brief moment, but Donny and Jenny’s love is rejected by everyone in town. Then, faced with eviction from his beloved shed, a visit from Donny’s destitute, estranged mother – who plans to sell him into slavery (!) – threatens to push the poor “weirdo” over the edge…!

Boy meets Girl.  Boy kills everyone.  A love story as only Andy Milligan could make.”- Frank Henenlotter, director of BASKET CASE & BRAIN DAMAGE.
