I got this on VHS last year for some stupid price (28 duckets i believe...thanks David K) so I was mildly bummed to discover a DVD with bonus material was gonna hit us anytime - mainly 'cause my VHS player is now fucked...shouldn't have played that moldy copy of Teen Wolf I taped off telly in 1988. Anyway, 'Rapture Adrenaline' is a video mash-up project that echo's Ferraro's work as a musician. Here Ferraro takes classic visual stimulus and kinda chucks it all together in an adhoc way. The majority of the footage looks ripped direct from Youtube (thanks you Youtube down-loader) though I prefer to believe they've been re-dubbed direct from Ferraro's private stash of VHS tapes. It's a fairly retarded affair but it's a triumph in terms of directing peeps attention to rare/lost/under appreciated movies of the 80's and early 90's. This includes snippets from Class Of '99 (a favourite of mine that desperately attempts to cash-in on the Terminator craze of the time), Mortal Kombat, Cybertracker II, Stargate, AWOL...the list goes on. There's probably bits from Prayer Of The Rollerboy, Demolition High, maybe They Live and shit like that...i don't remember. There's a particularly good snippet of kids failing miserably to pull off 180 kick-flips. So yeah, daft but enjoyable stuff especially if you're a fan of straight to VHS stuff and appreciate the quirks that come with this style of budget sci-fi and action adventure flicks. The big selling point is the bonus interview material. I've only had time for a quick scan but it looks pretty good and it features Ferraro walking about smoking cigs dressed in Parade era Prince ruffles. What a dood.
