88 Films recently announced a Limited Edition Blu-ray release of Eyeball from director Umberto Lenzi. The Blu-ray is available now for pre-order directly from the 88 Films website and I highly recommend that you order soon as copies are selling quick! Available August 27th.
Released in 1975, Eyeball might just be the late, great Umberto Lenzi's greatest giallo! Gruesome and gruelling, this torrid tale of a black gloved killer with a fetish for plucking out the peepers of his unlucky victims is a personal favorite of Pulp Fiction genius Quentin Tarantino and it is easy to see why. Boasting plenty of bloodshed and some beautiful Catalonian locations, Eyeball is a murder-mystery that stands up to the best of Mario Bava and Dario Argento and, with its messy arterial mayhem, even anticipates the later excess of such American slasher staples as Friday the 13th! Dare you open your eyes to Eyeball? This essential Italian terror totem is finally available in horrifying HD thanks to the body-count Kings at 88 Films!
