J.R. Bookwalter's Shot-on-Video Action Horror Film 'Ozone' Debuts on Blu-ray This August


Ozone Blu-ray Release Tempe Video

Restored from original Super-VHS-C camera masters with a dynamic 5.1 surround sound remix, producer/director J.R. Bookwalter's 1994 camcorder classic Ozone will explode onto Blu-ray this summer, looking sharper and more vibrant than ever together with three audio commentaries and over two hours of bonus materials, courtesy of Tempe Video.


In the film, "While on a stakeout, hardboiled cop Eddie Boone gets injected with a dangerous new designer drug causing nightmarish side effects. As he searches for his missing partner, Eddie discovers the urban streets full of mutants, monsters, and mayhem orchestrated by the mastermind behind the lethal narcotic!"


Ozone will also be available as a collectible 2-disc Signature Edition with bonus original version DVD, reversible artwork, eight-page booklet, and autographed slipcover sold exclusively by Makeflix, Diabolik, Grindhouse Video, and RoninFlix!
