For Immediate Release | UNDERWORLD: Brad Armstrong's XCritic Pick Snares the Spotlight at Stan Lee's Comikaze & AEE 2014

LOS ANGELES, CA - (NOVEMBER 8, 2013) - From editor's choice reviews and brisk sales to forward-thinking social media and street team marketing, Brad Armstrong's fantasy blockbuster "Underworld" is the original adult DVD event of 2013. The respected adult review portal XCritic.com has become the latest media outlet to honor the movie with an editor's choice review. "In all, the movie was deserving of an Xcritic Pick rating for a great many reasons," writes Don Houston. "Brad Armstrong and [lead actress] jessica drake again nail it to the point where Underworld merited special consideration for more award categories than I care to outline in this review." He concludes his critique by noting that "a lot of people should really appreciate it as a wonderful alternative to the largely dried up parody market, the gonzo genre, and the tidy little romances that all have their places too - give this double disc set a look and find out what the buzz is all about." In the sales arena, things are continuing to go swimmingly as well, with Armstrong's film attaining prominent positions in the Adult DVD Empire (www.adultdvdempire.com) Bestsellers charts since its initial release. On the promotional front, the "Underworld" themed contest "Flesh For Fantasy" is a hit with the company's social media audience. Each day is seeing fans tweeting their original "Underworld" character ideas to Twitter.com/wickedpictures for a chance to see their concept brought to life by Armstrong and drake in CLUB magazine.
