Official Press Release

HOUSTON, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Bodacious babes with killer attitudes

and bodies to match, not to mention the capability to knock you into the next

time zone; they all can give thanks to the original bad girl, Lady Death.

First appearing in the pages of Chaos Comics a decade ago, Lady Death is the

personification of all that a bad girl could want: the ability to

effortlessly slay countless enemies and physical assets any supermodel would

die for. The scantily clad femme fatale has been the inspiration for the idea

that the leading lady doesn't have to always be made of "sugar and spice."

With a fiendishly devoted fan-base, Lady Death introduced the comic book world

to a new idea of a hero; where being bad can sometimes be good.

To celebrate her 10th birthday, Lady Death, in all her sultry supernatural

beauty, has been brought to life with a full-length animated feature from ADV

Films, Lady Death: The Motion Picture, to be released on DVD just in time for

Halloween. With a gothic epic feel, Lady Death: The Motion Picture recreates

the themes and styles of the popular comic book series, complete with gory

battles, costumes that barely leave much to the imagination, and a storyline

that spans beyond life into the fiery depths of Hell.

Lady Death begins in 15th Century Sweden, where Hope, the beautiful

daughter of Matthias, a skilled mercenary who is in actuality Lucifer, is

accused of being the devil's consort. Sentenced by the town priest to be

burned at the stake, Hope is visited by the malevolent Pagan. Unable to think

clearly, she accepts Lucifer's offer of life in Hell over a hideous death ...

only to discover that there are far worse fates than dying. Lucifer's plan to

corrupt a soul of pure innocence meets unanticipated resistance, as Hope

rejects Lucifer's scheme and eventually finds herself transformed into the

powerful warrior Lady Death, who challenges the Lord of Lies for control of

Hell itself.

"I think she is the ultimate anti-heroine and in some ways defines what we

all sometimes wish for: the drive to achieve our goal no matter the cost,"

said writer/producer Andy Orjuela.

Lady Death: The Motion Picture is certain to appeal to fans of the comic

series as well as create legions of new fans with its DVD release. This

Halloween, come join the legions as the hail their dark mistress' first ever

film debut.
