From The SPAMFLIX Press Release
Imagine a platform where viewers watch never before seen cult *films *which have yet to reach their audience through traditional means of distribution.. Now imagine you can also play thematically tied quizzes, puzzles, and other fun, online challenges. This is the goal of SPAMFLIX, a new VoD platform where genre enthusiasts can become ensorcelled with cinematic oddities from around the world.
SPAMFLIX gives access to bonus content like making of clips and interviews with the directors. In the Games section users win prizes by playing trivia games about the films available in the platform.
SPAMFLIX was released last October out of Lisbon, Portugal, by Italo-German Markus Duffner, a project manager at the Locarno Film Festival (Switzerland) team and Julia Duarte, ex-producer of São Paulo International Film Festival (Brazil).
After several successful partnerships in the international festival community, including Sitges, SPAMFLIX will be an official partner at the Fall editions of Fantastic Fest and Brooklyn Horror, launching with a meticulously curated selection of films specifically targeted for US audiences.
“SPAMFLIX movies will surprise, shock, entertain and amaze you due to their poetical zaniness, powerful visual identities, outrageous social commentaries, silliness, ingenious comedy or absolute absurdity,” says Markus.
Films are available here for $5 store-wide and are available to stream for 72 hours after purchase. Film Packs are also available at deeper discounts, starting at 5 Films for $13 US.
Streaming services really do have something for everyone. Every niche. Every taste. Cult fans should be most pleased! They really do have a nice collection of hard to find stuff.
