The American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) represents the world's largest theatrical catalog of exploitation cinema. Their home video line presents a diverse selection of movies, ranging from new preservations of classics from the vast library of Something Weird to the wildest in shot-on-video (SOV) titles. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

Lost for decades and now found, SEX DEMON is an erotic grotesquerie that was openly inspired by THE EXORCIST and ABBY. John gives Jim, his lover, a medallion as an anniversary gift. But all hell breaks loose—literally—when the medallion causes Jim to become possessed by a sex demon and wreak havoc on New York's gay cruising spots. Never released on home video, J. C. Cricket's SEX DEMON is a crucial piece of queer horror history that has been preserved from a 16mm release print. Plus: The XXX-rated hauntings continue with DEADLY BLOWS and 10:30 P.M. MONDAY—two formerly lost horror films that also make their uncut home video debuts. In the words of GAY SCENE critic Bruce King: “The squeamish may not want to watch . . . but if you do, you won’t forget!”
