Cult isn’t the word as James Hong’s crazy horror classic The Vineyard gets the Arrow treatment and explodes onto DVD on Monday 10th June.
We’ve all heard that wine has its health benefits. But what if it could help prolong your life… indefinitely?!
Crackpot scientist and celebrated winemaker Dr. Elson Po has made the ultimate discovery: the secret to everlasting life. As with all good things, however, there’s an inevitable downside; and a bunch of good-looking and horny youngsters, invited to Dr Po’s island under the premise of an “audition”, are about to find out the hard way. As the vineyard starts to give up its dark secrets, these doomed teens will have to contend not only with Dr. Po and his kung-fu fighting henchmen but also with a rotting gang of marauding zombies!
A startlingly tongue-in-cheek mix of action, body-horror and undead terror, THE VINEYARDcomes courtesy of writer/director/actor James Hong – character actor extraordinaire and star of such genre favourites as Big Trouble in Little China and Blade Runner.
Hailed as “the man of a thousand faces”, James Hong is one of the world’s best loved Asian-American actors and cult stars. He is also, arguably, the most prolific. In an illustrious acting career spanning 50+ years, he has starred in over 450 film, television and video game roles and, at the tender age of 84, he shows no sign of stopping just yet.
Originally hitting the silver screen back in 1989, THE VINEYARD has aged gracefully, only now maturing into the bona-fide cult snifter that warrants the ArrowDrome treatment.
The newly re-vamped DVD release of THE VINEYARD comes complete with brand new artwork, a collector’s booklet featuring writing on the film by Calum Wadell, and the original theatrical trailer.
