    A cartel of seven crime bosses unionize and plan to take over the state of Hawaii. Government intelligence agent Drew Sevano (William Smith, Any Which Way You Can) is hired to “handle” the situation however he sees fit. Drew enlists seven old friends to help, creating Sevano’s Seven – the Playmate (Susan Kiger, H.O.T.S.), the Black-Belt (Ed Parker, Revenge of the Pink Panther), the Dragster (Christopher Joy, Big Time), the Cowboy (Guich Koock, North Dallas Forty), the Comic (Art Metrano, Police Academy 2), the Professor (Richard LePore, Stacey!) and the Indian (Barbara Leigh, Junior Bonner). Sevano’s Seven – death is their way of life. This cult classic was co-written, co-produced and directed by Andy Sidaris (Malibu Express, Hard Ticket to 86Hawaii) and co-starred Martin Kove (Steele Justice) and Terry Kiser (Weekend at Bernie’s).

    So I watched Seven the other night. The transfer won't floor you but it's more than watchable even if it looks like it was taken from an older master. Detail never blows you away, but it's better than the non-existent DVD! The movie itself is fucking great though. It might be about 10 minutes too long but otherwise, no complaints. Lots of great action, William Smith is awesome in it, plenty of naked ladies and bikini girls running around looking good, nice Hawaiian locations and some great action (including the best exploding Reggie Nalder you'll ever see). This one is a lot of fun. Anyone who digs Sidaris' style should get a kick out of this.

    Well, not Blu-ray releases, but...

    The Legendary Films of Andy Sidaris Are Coming to Full Moon!

    Trailblazing action movie auteur Andy Sidaris pioneered a kind of hard, sexy - but decidedly non-exploitative - brand of wild sex and guns and gonzo adventure film throughout the 1980s and '90s, movies that were affectionately dubbed "BBB" (Bullets, Bombs and Babes) by hardcore fans. With titles like MALIBU EXPRESS, HARD TICKET TO HAWAII, SAVAGE BEACH and FIT TO KILL, these adrenalized pulp action bonanzas (many of which were produced with his wife and partner, Arlene Sidaris) gave their primarily male audience exactly the sort of no-nonsense late-night escapism they craved, with rugged heroes, derring-do, skullduggery, endless explosions, exotic locales and lovely - often disrobed - ladies (including such now iconic superstars as Sybil Danning and Julie Strain).

    Today, the Sidaris library is the stuff of legend and while the world has yet to see Blu-ray upgrades of these cable and video store classics, Full Moon Features has just announced that - after negotiations with Arlene Sidaris - the entire "BBB" catalog will be coming to Full Moon Streaming and Full Moon's Amazon channel this month in gorgeous presentations. This is huge news for hardcore Sidaris fans and fans-to-be.

    "I'm thrilled about this deal," says Arlene Sidaris about the licensing agreement with Full Moon.

    "Streaming is a fantastic platform. I kept the rights to streaming not really thinking much of it and 15 years later, who knew it would be the primary way we consume movies today."

    Andy Sidaris' legacy goes far beyond his signature shoot 'em up thrillers, with a long history in media, including pioneering work with ABC's Wide World of Sports, inventing the now common "honey shot", where the camera would stray to the stands to find the prettiest girls and his Emmy-award winning work in television, both in sporting events and hit shows like KOJAK.

    But it is with his "BBB" gems (later renamed the L.E.T.H.A.L Ladies series) that the Sidaris name will forever be tied.

    "These were movies people discovered in the middle of the night on HBO and Showtime," notes Arlene Sidaris.

    "(Cult movie TV personality) Joe Bob Briggs loved them and helped get us the attention we needed and now they have a huge international fanbase."
    Full Moon's journey into Sidaris starts NEXT WEEK on August 8th, with the streaming premiere of Sidaris' insane MALIBU EXPRESS, a crazy tale of spies and sex-starved socialites that served as B-movie Goddess Sybil Danning's definitive performance.

    Check out the MALIBU EXPRESS trailer here!

    Every week, we will premiere another Sidaris masterwork and you can join the fun by subscribing to www.FullMoonStreaming.com and our Full Moon Amazonchannel. The Sidaris library joins our already hundreds-strong collection of insane International horror, cult, erotic, sci-fi and fantasy films that stream on our channels, 24/7.

    ^^ No mention of them being remastered. I guess I can be cautiously optimistic. Anyone here on RSP have a Full Moon streaming account and can report on the quality?

    They're SD transfers. Not sure if they're any different than what was on the old DVDs or not.

    Thanks Ian. That's a bummer. I've been expecting Shout Factory to pick these up and remaster them but its starting to feel hopeless. In a world that sees WOLFGUY and BLOOD HARVEST getting BDs, how is it STACEY doesn't even get a DVD release.

    I need to bug my local Alamo Drafthouse to have a SEVEN / STACEY double bill.

    I think our best hope for Stacey is Kino. I'd love to see it happen.

    I'd looove, love, love to see STACEY!* on blu-ray. Like with SEVEN it's not even on DVD. I own both films on ex-rental VHS. Btw, Ian, you said SEVEN is too long. I don't actually remember how long my tape runs but the cover says 85 min. so maybe the blu-ray has extra scenes???


    *the exclamation mark is part of the onscreen title, even IMDb gets it wrong.

    No worries, Ian. I checked. The cover is wrong. My VHS probably presents the same uncut version of the film. The film runs 97 minutes on the tape. And mind you it's PAL so it runs at a slightly faster pace.
