“Cult Epics has earned a reputation for unearthing cinematic obscurities and delivering them to audiences in feature packed special editions.” – Ian Jane, ROCK! SHOCK! POP!
“Headed up by filmmaker Nico B, Cult Epics is among the most dedicated and long-running purveyors of true cult cinema, with 25 years of beautiful releases for the big and small screen alike. It is a place where bad taste and great art intersect, whose roster is always confrontational and uncompromising.” -Kier-La Janisse (writer of House of Psychotic Women)
