THE RAVAGER and THE BUSHWHACKER represent the last hurrah for rough and tumble 60s style sexploitation before hardcore sex films completely took over the market. These two films are basically the last gasp, the final push on the envelope towards more extreme, horror-oriented fare, and in this they were perhaps too extreme for the raincoat brigade. After their brief theatrical runs, both disappeared for decades until unearthed by Something Weird Video in the 2000s.
THE RAVAGER was the brainchild of Belgian cinematic weirdo Charles Nizet, whose life was as bizarre as any film he made. But THE RAVAGER is perhaps his craziest movie, and stars Pierre Agostino, a regular in the films of Ray Dennis Steckler from the same period, as a PTSD stricken Vietnam vet with a peculiar kink for peeking on couples making love and then blowing them to smithereens with homemade bombs.
THE BUSHWHACKER was made by long-time exploitation maven Byron Mabe, who directed the classic SHE-FREAK. After their plane goes down somewhere in the deserts of the American southwest, a party of one alpha male and three lusty ladies are pursued through the wilds by an insane, coonskin-cap-wearing killer with an insatiable taste for female flesh.
American Arcana is proud to present these unique exploitation films on Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world, uncut and taken from the best available elements straight from the Something Weird Archives.

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
