HistoryEdit

Code Red was begun in 2006 by president Bill Norton Olsen.[4] The company's first release was Don't Go in the Woods... Alone!, released on October 24, 2006.[5] The Fabulous Journey to the Center of the Earth (1978) was the company's second release, followed by the horror film Devil Times Five (1974). Some of the early Code Red releases were purchased from Media Blasters.[4]

In 2010, the website RetroSlashers reported that Code Red would be shutting down,[6] and Olsen later stated that he had run out of money and was facing putting up his home in order to keep the company running.[4]

SeriesEdit

Code Red employs several series in its catalogue, which feature both standalone and double feature releases.[7] The company's running series include:

  • Exploitation Cinema
  • Maria's "B" Movie Mayhem (hosted by Maria Kanellis)
  • Post-Apocalyptic Collection
  • Roger Corman's Post-Nuke Collection
