One of the most violent and scummy exploitation movies to ever hit the big screen is coming to high definition blu-ray September 13, 2011 courtesy of the boys and girls over at Synapse Films. Roget Ebert gave it a glowing review in my opinion when he said “a sick example of the almost unbelievable descent into gruesome savagery in American movies.” That is the quickest way to sell me on a movie, Mr. Ebert. The remastered transfer (1.78:1 widescreen) is coming straight from the original vault materials and is going to be the gorier and more violent Director’s Cut! That’s 104 minutes of pure, unadulterated fun my friends!
SYNOPSIS (from press release)
