Watch: Documentary 'Celluloid Wizards in the Video Wasteland' Trailer

8 July 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

"They came from another time, they came from another world..." A new trailer has debuted online for a documentary called Celluloid Wizards in the Video Wasteland, about the rise and fall of independent production company Empire Pictures. Similar to the documentary Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, this film examines the story of producer Charles Band and the crappy D-movies he made back in the 1980s. Empire is most well known for making cult favorite genre films like Re-Animator, Ghoulies, Robot Jox, Trancers, and From Beyond, to name a few (any of these your favorites?). It's always fascinating to take a closer look at how films like this were made, especially considering they figured out how finance and find people to work on them. This trailer is mostly footage from their films, but I still dig it. Trailer for Celluloid Wizards in the Video Wasteland: The Saga of Empire Pictures, »
