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
“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
