Mikels, that stayed away from Hollywood, making films on their own turf, with little or no money, but were still able to produce films that were entertaining. William Grefé was one of those, cranking out films made in Florida. Now thanks to Arrow Video, there is a box set of Grefé’s films coming out on Blu-ray this November that is a collection that I feel is a must for any fans of exploitation and drive-in features. The box set is going to feature 7 features, all newly restored from the best surviving film elements, in this one box set. The features are: Sting of Death (1966), Death Curse of Tartu (1966), The Hooked Generation (1968), The Psychedelic Priest (1971), The Naked Zoo (1971), Mako: Jaws of Death (1976) and Whiskey Mountain (1977). Haven’t heard of some of these? Well now is your chance to remedy that! I mean, how can you go wrong about a film that features a jellyfish man???

The set is going to be filled with extras to make any fan drool.  Amazon has it listed for $99.99, but you can pre-order it now from Diabolik DVD for only $59.99! Below is all the goodies in the set: Continue reading
