New Release - Donald Farmer's Legendary Coming June 17th From Wild Eye

We should a full review up for this shortly, but this should be a great bit of fun for fans of some of the dirty rotten movies from the late 70's and 80's. I realize there's a wonderful debate swirling around, but what consitutes a Scream Queen. I'll be keeping that in mind as I watch this documentary. The full release below includes some of the movies and queens to be covered. No complaints here just yet.
A Donald Farmer is a cult legend, so this should prove to be fun. For those of you who are unfamiliar with his work he directed the Savage Vengeance, Cannibal Hookers, Demon Queen and more recently Hi-8.
Full release:
