Pink Wednesday

Happy 2009 and let's hope it's not as bad a year as everyone predicts it will be.

Just a quick shout-out today that our friends at Pink Eiga will release their first two DVDs today, available both at the Pink Eiga website and at Amazon. Order directly from them and you'll get free shipping, plus you'll be supporting a new company struggling to stay alive in this economy by releasing titles that have always been a bit problematic in the U.S. market.

We met the folks behind this upstart label at last year's Fantastic Fest in Austin, where we screened two of their titles plus two other, older pink films. The Pink Eiga folks are terrific - truly dedicated to what they're doing in the best way, and fun to hang out with. They picked up the rights to a couple hundred pink films dating from the 70s to the very recent and will be rolling them out regularly this year and beyond. They're also hoping to make some of them available online and elsewhere, if the deals can be worked out.

For a look at the first two discs (New Tokyo Decadence: The Slave and the truly insane S&M Hunter), surf on over to Kaiju Shakedown, who also takes a peek under the covers at the folks behind the great work they're doing.

Good films. Haven't finished The Slave yet, but it seems to be a more thought out Secretary.

If they are indeed "truly dedicated to what they're doing in the best way" why do they insist on calling films WHORE HOSPITAL 2: ARMAGEDDON?
