The Breathing Show

“…an admirable and original work.” – Tom Luddy, Telluride Film Festival

Peter loves Katherine. Katherine loves Hubert. Hubert loves nothing but his incomprehensible art.

Red

“Ballsy, audacious, memorable fun comedy…” – Joe Bob Briggs

Long before Bart Simpson started harassing Moe the Bartender, a phone prankster in New Jersey was badgering the owner of the Tube Bar and making a tape of every word that was said. The tapes were passed from person to person, copied and re-copied and eventually made it into the hands of Chris Gore, editor of Film Threat. This now legendary comedy stars tough guy Lawrence Tierney (from Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs) as Red, the beleaguered booze jockey at the Tube Bar. Tortured beyond human endurance by such telephonic classics as “Is Stu there? Stu Pip?” and “Is Al there? Last name Koholic?” Red quickly falls prey to fantasies involving shotguns, baseball bats and severe bodily injury.

This cult classic comes to DVD with over 300 minutes of extra features sure to make this disc a party favorite, including: Three Commentaries, “Unhappy Hour: The Shooting of Red” Behind-the-Scenes Doc, The Cult of Red, Tribute to Lawrence Tierney, Bonus short “Ouch!”, Closed captioning in 10 languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Portugese, Dutch, Chinese and Japanese, Trailers and loads more!

Film Threat DVD will continue to release truly independent films over the course of 2005.
