This week’s video distributor intro is Academy Entertainment.
This intro was taken from my newly acquired VHS of Bloody New Year.
Academy Entertainment came into being in the mid-eighties and released several horror titles, including Terror at the Red Wolf Inn, Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare, Night of a Thousand Cats, Killer Workout and the Witchcraft series, before winking out around 1995. Academy also dealt out action & softcore thrillers, as well as bizarre offerings like the The Linguini Incident with David Bowie & Rosanna Arquette and Prayer of the Rollerboys with Corey Haim. After looking through their catalogue, I was surprised to find how many of them we actually had at my store.
