“PROPHETIC MASTERPIECE FAR MORE TERRIFYING THAN SCREAM AND BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE COMBINED.” THE UNROCKUPTIBLES
Byron Orlok, famous horror film actor, has decided to end his career. His last public appearance will take place the next day at a drive-in where he will present his latest film.

For his first feature film produced under the patronage of Roger Corman, critic Peter Bogdanovich delivers a chilling reflection on ordinary violence through a subtle play of cinephilic mirrors.

Illustrious interpreter of Frankenstein , veteran Boris Karloff explodes in one of his last roles on screen. Discover for the first time on Blu-ray™ and DVD in its new 2K restoration made from a 4K scan and supervised by Peter Bogdanovich!
