Toronto, ON – Anchor Bay Entertainment will release The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, the first full-length animated feature from Director/Writer Rob Zombie (The Devil’s Rejects and 2009’s Halloween), on DVD and Blu-ray™ on September 22, 2009. A longtime pet project of Zombie (he based it on his comic book), The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, is an ultra-hip, wickedly funny fantasy that’s a colorful blend of Fritz the Cat, “Scooby-Doo,” “Ren and Stimpy,” and Santo wrestling flicks. El Superbeasto is “Adults Only” animation available on DVD and Blu-ray™.
The Haunted World of El Superbeasto is the twisted tale of El Superbeasto (voiced by Tom Papa), a former world class masked wrestler with super human strength, who now finds himself in the very ordinary capacity as producer/director/star of BeastoWorld Enterprises. But when he can, Beasto spends time fighting evil along with his with his super-sexy sister, Suzi X (Sheri Moon Zombie), in the spooky Monsterland. Our hefty hero faces his biggest battle when he struggles to stop the unholy marriage of foul-mouthed stripper Velvet Von Black (Rosario Dawson) and the diabolical Dr. Satan (Paul Giamatti). Will all hell break loose or will our man save the day? The answer can only be found in The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, a depraved adventure with filthy comedy, ultra-violence, and some bad-ass theme songs!
Along with the distinct voice work of Dawson, Giamatti, Moon Zombie, and Papa, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto also features many other instantly recognizable performers including Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Daniel Roebuck, Harland Williams, Cassandra Peterson, Clint Howard, Dee Wallace, Rob Paulsen, Tura Satana, and Danny Trejo.
With Rob Zombie, a cast of fan favorites, and original songs by Hard ‘n Phirm; The Haunted World of El Superbeasto is a trash culture wild ride that’s a soon-to-be cult classic.
