Wild Eye Releasing has acquired and will release Hi-8, an eight-part anthology that brings together some of the most recognizable names in home video horror of the past 30 years, capturing the creative essence of the golden era of low budget, SOV horror filmmaking.
The directors for Hi-8 are Tim Ritter (Killing Spree), Brad Sykes (Camp Blood), Marcus Koch (100 Tears), Ron Bonk (The Vicious Sweet), Donald Farmer (Demon Queen), Todd Sheets (Zombie Bloodbath), Chris Seaver (Mulva), and Tony Masiello (SOV: The True Independents), who have returned to their classic ’80s and ’90s style, gore-laced storytelling.
All eight segments feature only practical effects and all directors were forbidden to use any post-Internet technology, including HD cameras, green screen, CGI or found footage.
The DVD will arrive with a wide range of special features this October. Stay tuned for a release date.
