William Lustig's 'Vigilante' Coming to 4K Ultra HD from Blue Underground


His justice is swift. His methods are violent. He is the vigilante.


After bringing Lucio Fulci's The House by the Cemetery and The New York Ripper to 4K Ultra HD back in August, Blue Underground have announced their next 4K release will be William Lustig's (Maniac Cop trilogy) violent 1982 crime thriller Vigilante, starring the late Robert Forster.


In the film, "New York City factory worker Eddie Marino (Forster) is a solid citizen and regular guy, until the day a sadistic street gang brutally assaults his wife and murders his child. But when a corrupt judge sets the thugs free, Eddie goes berserk and vows revenge. Now there’s a new breed of marauder loose on the city streets, enforcing his own kind of law."


Fred Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn), Richard Bright (The Godfather), Rutanya Alda (Amityville II: The Possession), Carol Lynley (The Poseidon Adventure), Woody Strode (Spartacus), Joe Spinell (Maniac) and Salsa legend Willie Colón co-star in this hard-hitting exploitation classic that many critics consider to be better – and more shocking – than the original Death Wish.


"Now Blue Underground is thrilled to present Vigilante in a pristine new restoration, scanned in 4K 16-bit from the original 35mm camera negative, with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, fully loaded with exclusive new and archival extras!"
