Unearthed Films is proud to announce that we are now the exclusive distributor for all Plotdigger Films releases.
Yes, the rumors are true! Our first release will be Nicholson's FAMINE, which has never had a release in the US.

Here’s a list of the films we will be releasing on Blu-ray from the Plotdigger Films library (in no particular order):


PLUS BIG FUCKING MONSTER (Never seen before. We are working on the post and edit to complete the film)

AND (Drum Roll………) GUTTERBALLS 2!!!

Yeah, Yeah, I know. I’m sure there are a lot of people who are pissed off at Ryan Nicholson because he didn’t deliver on his INDIEGOGO promises, BUT here’s the good news! In a heartfelt effort to rectify the situation, Unearthed Films is working closely with Ryan to edit the GUTTERBALLS 2 footage and complete the film so that it can be distributed and delivered to all those fans who put up their hard earned money to support the INDIEGOGO campaign. Regrettably, GUTTERBALLS 3 will never see the light of day as no footage was shot.

Let me tell you the reasons why I’ve decided to work with Ryan Nicholson to try and make things right, not just for fans of GUTTERBALLS but for his whole library.

As some of you may know, Ryan Nicholson was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor while working on GUTTERBALLS 2 and GUTTERBALLS 3. He soon became deathly ill but managed to finish the shoot of GB2 (but not GB3). Fortunately, he had successful brain surgery to stop the cancer but poking around in the brain can also have negative consequences. The surgery resulted in personality changes and work on some of his films was put on hold as other medical conditions surfaced. To this day, Ryan is still dealing with medical problems resulting from the surgery.

Unearthed Films released Ryan’s film COLLAR some years back and he liked what we did with the release. He also knew that we have the ability to do postproduction in house and that we could help in bringing some of his lost movies into the light of day. It made sense therefore for us to come together and work on his films. We plan to get them completed, delivered, distributed AND to clean up the INDIEGOGO mess.

Here’s what we plan to do. To all those people who purchased GB2 and GB3 from the suspended INDIEGOGO campaign, we will be offering the completed GB2 plus BIG FUCKING MONSTER. These will be free of charge and we’ll pay for the postage. This way, INDIEGOGO customers will be receiving two new films as was originally intended. IF the INDIEGOGO campaign left a bad taste in your mouth and you don't want BIG FUCKING MONSTER, we will let you choose a Blu-ray or DVD from the Unearthed Films catalog to make up the difference. We hope this will go a long way to rectifying the situation and be some kind of compensation for the trouble caused. We will be contacting everyone who pre-bought from the INDIEGOGO campaign to find out how you want to proceed.

To be honest, Ryan Nicholson is very lucky to still be alive. Unearthed Films is stepping in, not only as fans but also as Ryan’s new distributor and business partner, in order to try and make everything right. We believe this is the least we can do for everyone involved including the Unearthed Films fans and family, for all Ryan Nicholson and Plotdigger fans, and also for his haters and people pissed off at the situation. We are confident that we can make this right (or at least somewhat right) and certainly an improvement on the present situation. Ryan needs our help to make this a reality and the fans who made GB2 possible need our help in order to get delivery of the film they ordered long ago.

I realize I may get a lot of hate for taking this on... but fuck it. The way I look at it is... we are all family in the small corner of the horror industry where we reside and flourish... sometimes we need help to make things right and I’m lucky enough to be in a position to help in some way, shape or form and I’m going to do that.

To recap, FAMINE will be Unearthed Films first release in a series of “never before seen” movies from Plotdigger. We will be finalizing BIG FUCKING MONSTER while others on the Unearthed Films team will be working from scratch on the edit of GUTTERBALLS 2 in order to complete the film as was originally envisioned by Ryan. The only version of GB2 that has ever been shown was a cobbled together “film festival” version. It was a speed edit by someone who had no experience and is not reflective of what the film could be. I know this because I’ve looked through the dailies and there’s some damn good stuff in there. Meanwhile, Ryan will be working on the statues of the BBK that were ordered through INDIEGOGO to get them finished. As for the collectors’ sets that promised two additional versions of GB2 and GB3 (the “bootleg” and “pin-atration” cuts) we’re probably not going to do these. The “bootleg” cut with unlicensed music is particularly problematic.

I hope this is positive news (even great news!) for everyone. It means BIG FUCKING MONSTER, FAMINE and GUTTERBALLS 2 will see the light of day and all the previously released films will be on Blu-ray. If we’re lucky, we may also get our hands on another “never before seen” Nicholson film called CANNIBAL LIPSTICK. We are trying to locate the footage and hope to make this a reality too.

In addition to all the above, we are working behind the scenes on a lot of other exciting projects and will have news on these soon.
Death and Dismemberment,

This is good news! And good on you Biro for stepping up and getting Ryan's films released!
