Jessicka Rabid Now Available for Pre-Order on DVD!  Here's the press release:

 Jessicka Rabid (DVD)

JESSICKA RABID is finally making its way to DVD!  The feature film was produced by Troma alumni, Elske McCain (Gimme Skelter/Poultrygeist) and directed by Matthew Reel, and underground filmmaker who is proud to make his feature film debut.  The film has been picked up by Plan 10 Pictures, a company started by indie filmmakers Tom Devlin and Lola Wallace.

A dysfunctional family, the Hoffmans, have been living their lives in a veil of secrecy. Incest, rape are a part of their everyday lives. A product of which, is Jessicka (Elske). After years of nameless abuse of her family and neighbors, Jessicka has been reduced to something less than human. She's more of a family pet than she is a true member of the family. Jessicka is the tragic character brought up from her surroundings, and suddenly finds her opportunity for revenge.

The film had made its debut last year to critical acclaim, being noted not only for its avant-garde approach to the classic grindhouse rape/revenge film, but also for its performances.  The film’s headliners are Elske McCain who portrays Jessicka with an understated, yet tortured performance.  The film also stars cult film veteran, Trent Haaga (Terror Firmer/Bonnie & Clyde vs. Dracula) as Marley Hoffman, a petty criminal who is desperately trying to hold the remains of his family together while keeping his temper.  Rounding out the cast are Jeff Sisson, who plays the film’s antagonist, and newcomer Cisiany Olivar as Abby.

JESSICKA features a haunting original score by composer Mario Salvucci. His music recalls the best of classic music scores, recalling Goblin and Ennio Morricone.  The score also features a previously unreleased version of “Rabies is a Killer”, a song by Clive Jones of Black Widow and Agony Bag.

The DVD will have many special features including “The Ashtray”, a short film by Matthew Reel.  Also included will be a behind the scenes featurette, Lloyd Kaufman’s outtakes, an unreleased music video for the song “Rabies is a Killer” by Agony Bag (1980) and trailers.

The DVD is available for pre-order at:
