We are Joseph A. Ziemba and Zack Carlson, collaborators on the trash-horror film website, BLEEDING SKULL.COM! Together, with the help of our friends at MONDO, the art boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, we’ve launched BLEEDING SKULL! VIDEO. Specializing in ultra-obscure, no-budget horror and exploitation movies from the 1980s and early 1990s, BLEEDING SKULL! VIDEO is a VHS and digital label that is dedicated to sharing unreleased (or barely released) movies with the world.
Over the past fifteen years, we’ve been obsessed with discovering, collecting, and reviewing the world’s rarest exploitation films. Joe is the founder of BLEEDING SKULL.COM, the co-author and designer of BLEEDING SKULL! A 1980s TRASH-HORROR ODYSSEY (Headpress, 2013), and an art director/film programmer at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX. Zack is a screenwriter, film producer, and co-author of DESTROY ALL MOVIES!!! THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO PUNKS ON FILM (Fantagraphics Books, 2011). After discovering an unreleased 1980s horror movie by one of our favorite filmmakers in the trunk of a used car, we knew that something had to be done. With Mondo’s help, we’re devoted to preserving and sharing these discoveries on the format that they were originally meant to be seen.
Each BLEEDING SKULL VIDEO! VHS title is authentically packaged to represent its respective era, from classy big boxes to photocopied clamshell cases. Every release also includes an issue of MINIMUM UNDERDRIVE, an in-depth ‘zine that features interviews, rare photos, and artwork specific to each movie. All of our releases are available online at: BLEEDINGSKULLVIDEO.COM and MONDOTEES.COM.
