New On Blu: The Astro-Zombies

New this week from Kino Lorber is The Astro-Zombies, directed by Ted V. Mikels, and starring Wendell Corey, John Carradine, Tom Pace, and Tura Satana.

"Newly Re-mastered in HD! A film that has it all… a mad astro-scientist (John Carradine, House of the Long Shadows) reviving corpses at his laboratory; two gore-crazed, solar-powered killer robot zombies; a bloody trail of girl-next-door victims; Chinese communist spies; deadly Mexican secret agents led by the insanely voluptuous Tura Satana (Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!) and intrepid CIA agent Wendell Corey (The Killer is Loose) hot on their trail and trying to figure it all out! This cult favorite was written, produced and directed by cult legend, Ted Mikels (One Shocking Moment, Blood Orgy of the She-Devils) melds into a high-powered fusion the films of Ed Wood, Russ Meyer and George Romero with undead cannibal gore chills… hot-pants sexploitation thrills… '60's sci-fi mumbo-jumbo and Cold War espionage intrigue."

The Astro-Zombies is available now on Blu-ray and DVD.
