A few weeks back, we reported on a new special edition DVD of the notorious cult-classic Faces Of Death. Now, Dark Sky Films has officially announced the details for the disc, set to hit shelves (in both DVD & Blu-Ray formats) on October 7th, 2008! Read the press release below for the details and special feature stats!
Called "the ultimate taboo tape" by Entertainment weekly, Faces of Death is the most controversial, critically reviled and fastest selling documentary in home video history. Parents tried to stop it. Video stores had to hide it. Yet across the nation, millions found ways to secretly watch it...if they dared. Renowned pathologist Dr. Frances B. Gröss is your guide to the most bizarre and grisly death scenes ever recorded, from executions, assassinations and mass murder to suicide, disease and disasters. Three decades later, is it hardcore gross-out, elaborate hoax or still the ultimate forbidden movie? »
For older horror fans who remember sneaking behind the "special curtain" at the local video joint to see Death staring back at us, it is a special memory. Oh, the number of times I got beaten for sneaking Faces of Death home.
Last month we revealed plans from Red Shirt Pictures in regard to a very special edition DVD of the original Faces of Death. Red Shirt is currently handling the special features while Gorgon Video itself will be distributing the taboo classic to the masses.
But ... when is it going to come out? What better time than around Halloween? How about a few weeks before Samhain? Hell yes! Faces of Death Se will be celebrating its 30-year anniversary on both DVD and Blu-ray on October 7th!
The bonus features will include:
A feature-length documentary with director Conan Le Cilaire Choice Cuts with editor Glenn Gurner featurette The Death Makers »
