With an election right around the corner, there's no better time to revisit YEAR OF THE YAHOO.


What happens when a know-nothing populist is co-opted by cynical, moneyed interests who engineer his run for office and turn him into a puppet for their selfish agendas? Everything new is old again in this strange, non-horror outing from Herschell Gordon Lewis that tells the story of a country-western singer's journey through the political meatgrinder. Featuring a slew of Lewis regulars, sets re-purposed from THE WIZARD OF GORE, and some toe-tapping Lewis-penned tunes, this is one oddity worth checking out.


Co-presented with Scarecrow Video and Something Weird Video.
