Astron Who?...
Astron-6 was founded in 1980 by six filmmakers allegedly “fed up” with the Canadian filmmaking system (notably ACTRA and IATSE). In an attempt to cash in on the recent success of Conan: The Barbarian, and the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons, the Astron-6 team conceived Goreblade as the commercially viable concept they needed to finance future productions. Unfortunately, after only one week in thirty six theatres, Goreblade: Warrior King of the Universe officially bombed, and remains to this day the only feature film ever produced by Astron-6. The movie did eventually attain a certain cult status on Beta and VHS, though copies remain very difficult to find. This is because Astron-6 distributed Goreblade and Astron-6 was not a distribution company.
