Victory To Distrib AEI

First batch of releases due Oct. 21.

AEI Home Entertainment, a division of L.A.-based Atchity Entertainment International, has signed an exclusive pact for DVD distribution with Chicago-based Victory Records.

The deal marks a major step into the home video business for Victory, the currently hot indie label that scored a recent No. 3 debut on The Billboard 200 with Taking Back Sunday's "Where You Want to Be."

The first batch of AEI Home Entertainment releases under the agreement, due Oct. 21, will feature titles by the well-known B horror/exploitation director Ted V. Mikels. The features include "Cauldron: Baptism of Blood," "Mark of the Astro-Zombies" and "Dimensions in Fear."

Victory is distributed by RED.
