Lisa Petrucci

Lisa Petrucci

Lisa Petrucci has been writing about Sixties sexploitation cinema since the early 1990s after seeing Doris Wishman’s BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL and the Findlay’s THE SIN SYNDICATE on home video. From that time on she immersed herself in sin and skin flicks. Lisa met Something Weird Video’s head honcho, Mike Vraney, in 1993, moved to Seattle, and began working at SWV as a graphic designer and film reviewer. Lisa and Mike became partners in life and business, running SWV as a team, each bringing their respective talents to the table. Together they helped make SWV one of the most beloved video labels, know for it’s bottom-of-the-barrel low budget film library with a punk rock attitude. Sadly, Mike passed away in January 2014 after a heroic battle with lung cancer. Lisa, determined to honor Mike’s hard work and legacy, has kept the flame alive by continuing to run the daily operations /mail order and by partnering with like-minded video companies and film archives like AGFA, Severin Films, Pop Cinema, Mondo Macabro, The Film Detective, and others to restore and release the Something Weird library on Blu-ray, theatrically, and streaming.
