RLJE Films and FANGORIA have released three brand new behind-the-scenes featurettes in celebration of Joe Begos’s much-anticipated action-horror film VFW being available now on DVD, Blu-ray, On Demand and Digital. Make sure you check them out below and learn more about all the shenanigans behind-the-scenes.
RLJE Films acquired North American rights to the action-horror feature VFW ahead of its world premiere at last year’s Fantastic Fest (Sept. 19 to 26, 2019) in Austin.
Written by Max Brallier (“The Last Kids on Earth”) & Matthew McArdle and directed by Joe Begos (Almost Human, Mind’s Eye), the film stars Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe), William Sadler (Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Die Hard 2), Fred Williamson (Black Caesar, From Dusk Till Dawn), Martin Kove (The Karate Kid, “Cobra Kai”), George Wendt (“Cheers”), David Patrick Kelly (“Twin Peaks”), Tom Williamson (“The Fosters”), Sierra McCormick (The Vast of Night), Travis Hammer (“Godless”), and Dora Madison (“Friday Night Lights”).
A typical night for a group of war veterans at the local VFW turns into an all-out battle for survival when a teenage girl runs into the bar with a bag of stolen drugs. Suddenly under attack from a gang of punk mutants looking to get back what’s theirs – at any cost – the vets use every weapon they can put together to protect the girl, and their VFW, in the biggest fight of their lives.
The film was produced by Dallas Sonnier (Bone Tomahawk), Amanda Presmyk (Satanic Panic) and Josh Ethier (Bliss). Executive Producers are Media Finance Capital’s David Gilbery and Charles Dorfman, FANGORIA’s Danielle Cox and Phil Nobile Jr., Stephen Lang, Noah Lang, Bobby Campbell, Adam Donaghey, Jonathan Deckter and Marc Hofstatter.
Mark Ward and Jess DeLeo from RLJE Films and Sonnier from CINESTATE negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers. VFW premiered at Fantastic Fest alongside a 35mm print of Begos’s third feature Bliss.
VFW is now available on DVD, Blu-ray, On Demand and Digital HD. For more on the film, check out our review HERE. To learn more about Stephen Lang’s role and Martin Kove’s role in the film, check out their interviews HERE and HERE.
