Archenemy focuses on the story of Max Fist, a man who claims to be a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space to Earth, where he has no powers. No one believes his stories except for a local teen named Hamster. Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate and its vicious crime boss known as The Manager.
RJLE Films’s Mark Ward, who helped negotiate the deal with Spectrum alongside Jess DeLeo, released a statement saying:
We’re excited to be back in business with SpectreVision after the incredibly successful releases of Mandy and Color Out of Space.
