It was announced last month that Australian company Umbrella Entertainment would be releasing the criminally underrated splatter flick, Death Warmed Up, on Blu-ray this year, and we've now learned that Severin Films will also be giving the film a Blu-ray release this April.
Three years before Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste, a young New Zealand filmmaker sprayed international movie screens with brains, blood and bizarre body fluids for the first splatter movie in Kiwi history: Director David Blyth (Wound, Ghost Bride) launched his genre career with this relentlessly graphic – and still-intense – story of mad doctors, nude teens, psychotic mutants, shotgun murders, power drill lobotomies, explosive action and punk attitude that AXS.com calls “weird, wonky and one hell of a ride that will have gorehounds howling!”
Michael Hurst (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), Bruno Lawrence (The Quiet Earth) and Ian Watkin (Dead Alive) star in the film.
