RUNAWAY NIGHTMARE Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo: Pre-order starts now!

Today we're beginning pre-orders for our limited edition (only 1000 pressed!), hand numbered Blu-ray/DVD combo pack of Mike Cartel's incredible outsider art/vanity film/exploitation masterpiece, RUNAWAY NIGHTMARE!

Easily one of the strangest films we've ever worked on, Cartel's unique vision is a mind-numbing blend of humor, surrealism and horror overtones, made over the course of two years and never officially released in its director's cut! Long only available through an unauthorized VHS release, complete with SOV topless insert shots (included on our disc as extras), we're very pleased to be presenting the film uncut and untampered with for the first time ever!

The special Limited Edition Blu/DVD is exclusively available through and for $24.98. We highly encourage you to place your order through as they are the experts in exploitation fulfillment. Also, for pre-orders, DiabolikDVD does not charge until shipping, whereas we charge at checkout.

We'll also be stockpiling approx 200 copies to sell at conventions throughout the year - Cinema Wasteland, Rock and Shock, etc...

Our previous limited-edition release sold out quickly - so order fast because we're already through nearly 1/3 of our RUNAWAY NIGHTMARE supply!

After discovering a woman buried alive, two Death Valley worm farmers are kidnapped by an all-female cult of gun runners who, after making the men into their sex slaves, force them to assist in a plan to steal a suitcase full of platinum from the mafia. Combining black comedy with elements of horror, action, thriller, and surrealist cinema, director/writer/producer/editor/star Mike Cartel’s (Pets, Bitter Heritage) RUNAWAY NIGHTMARE stands as one of the most fiercely unique works of outsider/cult cinema to emerge from the 1970s and 80s. Also featuring a co-starring performance from Georgia Durante, author of The Company She Keeps and crewed by Rowdy Harrington (director of Road House) and Daryn Okada (cinematographer of Mean Girls).
