His rare Super 8 films, including “Methusarla, Guardian of Hell” and “Rogues” were included in the Subversive Cinema release of “Savage Sinema From Down Under,” a retrospective look at Savage's more than two decade career that includes an amazing selection of supplements and feature films such as “Marauders,”“
