Vinegar Syndrome associate label Tradition Shock Releasing, a joint
undertaking between Lo-Fi Video and Verboden Video, has made a reputation for themselves
with their releases of images shot both on movie or videotape produced
throughout the Eighties by way of the Nineteen Nineties and so forth.  In partnership with OCN Distribution, the
firm has specialised in releasing cult microbudget horror movies off the
crushed path in lovingly designed deluxe restricted editions with specifically
designed slipcovers. 
 
One which appeared to slide by way of the cracks amongst many a SOV
(shot-on-video) movie collector earlier than being rescued by Tradition Shock Releasing
is writer-producer-director Paul Clinco’s SVHS Civil Conflict demon rampage slasher Dying
Magic
, a movie that sandwiches collectively disparate historic horror components
with a contemporary medium and timeline that shouldn’t coalesce however one way or the other
does.  What number of videotaped slasher horror
films are you aware of with an undead Civil Conflict captain working amok with a
steadily rising physique depend and uptick in gory phantasmagorical visuals?  Furthermore, when’s the final time you noticed sexy
youngsters getting sliced and diced by a crusty sociopathic everlasting nineteenth
century main?

Powell Davidson (Keith DeGreen) and his crew of black magic
acolytes are becoming bored with working for his or her grasp Donald Graham (Norman
Stone) in the hunt for extra full of life and harmful thrills together with however not restricted
to plans of necromancy.  Because the begins
align, Powell and crew start their bare demonic summoning rites however unintentionally
unleash a century previous demon within the type of Main Aaron Parker (Jack Dunlap) who
vowed throughout his public execution by hanging in 1975 that someday he would come
again to destroy the descendants of those that ordered his dying.  Very quickly, the vengeful and mad entity
begins taking out the younger occultists one after the other, typically in quite
compromising conditions performed for over-the-top horror laughs.
 
In a single breath an SVHS Gettysburg, in one other a
Satanic conjuring tape ala Alucarda chock filled with nudity, blood, guts
and low-cost video results, Dying Magic set and filmed in Tuscon, Arizona is
each solely certainly one of two movies by the late writer-director Paul Clinco in addition to
an instance of positively homegrown western horror, proper right down to the movie being
rapidly self-distributed by the filmmakers earlier than vanishing into
obscurity.  Initially created by the ER
physician/novelist for his native theater troupe Domino Theater, this distinctly
selfmade slice of video horror mixing Pagan Cult imagery with Civil Conflict
reenactors and dramatizations is a very uncommon SOV cocktail you not often if
ever hear about anymore.

Presumably lensed by Paul Clinco with the assistance of set
decorator Steven Hubble and aided by a really synth keybord rating by Malcolm
Orrall, this do-it-yourself enterprise may be very surprisingly a lower above most different
microbudget choices.  That includes a good
dosage of particular results by Carzon ‘Koz’ Noel III, the movie has some gory
kills that may delight horror followers in between bevy of charmingly lo-fi video
display screen results.  The appearing is usually
superb with the Civil Conflict period flashbacks acted moderately nicely although Jack Dunlap
is clearly having a variety of enjoyable chewing up the surroundings within the current tense
scenes of the demonic Main Aaron Parker terrorizing the hapless Satanists who
bit off way over they may chew.
 
Paul Clinco oversaw the blu-ray authoring and mastering of his
private SVHS grasp and in so doing included a variety of extras together with
comparisons of different video sources and an prolonged barely gorier ending and
additionally offered an audio commentary, sadly passing away in 2022 shortly earlier than
the disc launch hit retailer cabinets.  The
ensuing regional exploitation horror thriller regardless of having little to no
means to make not to mention distribute the movie however packs a joyous punch
of its personal.  Furthermore, this is perhaps the
solely movie to chop from a interval Civil Conflict trial to a nude Satanist being cloaked
in fog machines earlier than the embellished but disturbed Main Aaron Parker rears his
ugly head.  You don’t get juxtapositions
like this in shiny studio financed movies not to mention wherever else.

As a beer-and-pizza movie, Dying Magic for being
fully top-to-bottom homegrown does rather a lot with little or no means and can
tickle the fancies of many a SOV aficionados. 
Who would’ve thought one of many solely known-of Civil Conflict infused occult
slasher horror movies could be shot and really minimally launched on tape?  Hardly ever do you get these various ideas
married collectively not to mention on such a uniquely trendy format.  You received’t come throughout one other one fairly like
this anytime quickly.
