RELEASE DATE: January 3, 2017
On January 3rd, Scorpion Releasing is unleashing a wave of Cirio H. Santiago (Future Hunters) classics on DVD, as part as their “Roger Corman’s Post Nuke Collection” line up. If you’re fan of this cult Filipino filmmaker, you’ve came to the right place; so grab your pork adobo and enjoy the jeepney ride!
Equalizer 2000 (1987)
First up, Equalizer 2000 (aka Apocalypse Warriors). You won’t find Edward Woodward or Denzel Washington in this flick. Those guys were too expensive.
Dune Warriors (1991)
Think of this one as Mad Max meets Kung Fu meets the partial title of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel.
After the end of the world, Earth is a thirsty planet ruled by vicious warlords. One woman is brave enough to fight back; she bands together five warriors to save her town and their precious water…
Dune Warriors stars David Carradine (Kill Bill Vol.1, Vol.2, Circle of Iron), Rick Hill (Deathstalker), Luke Askew (No Retreat, No Surrender 3: Blood Brothers), Jillian McWhirter (Bloodfist VII: Manhunt) and Blake Boyd (Raiders of the Sun).
Wheels of Fire (1985)
Sorry folks, no Richard Norton, David Carradine or Robert Patrick in this one. The only selling point this flick has is the fact that it’s another Road Warrior rip-off.
The Future is now. There are no rules and no place to hide from the deadly Highway Warriors who ravage the roads in machines of destruction.
Wheels of Fire stars Gary Watkins (Johnny Dangerously), Laura Banks (Demon of Paradise), Lynda Wiesmeier (Avenging Angel) and Linda Grovenor (B.J. and the Bear…I remember this… sh*t, I’m old!).
The Sisterhood (1988)
What do the leading ladies of Knight Rider, For Your Eyes Only and Robert Patrick have in common? They make up the cast of The Sisterhood (aka Caged Woman), a female Mad Max if you you will.
The year is 2021 AD. Women have been enslaved by a brutal army of men who survived the nuclear holocaust. Their only hope for freedom is in the hands of a nomadic band of fierce she-warriors: The Sisterhood.
The Sisterhood stars Rebecca Holden (Knight Rider), Lynn-Holly Johnson (For Your Eyes Only), Barbara Patrick (yes, it’s his wife) and Chuck Wagner (America 3000).
If you’re interested in these titles, they’re all available for pre-order at Amazon.com. And don’t forget about Stryker, another Cirio H. Santiago flick that’s also being released on January 3rd. Despite not being part of the “Roger Corman’s Post Nuke Collection,” it very well should be! Read about the release here... maraming salamat po!
