Arrow Video, with domestic sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has tabbed Jan. 24 as the street date for a new 2K restoration (from the original camera negative) of director John Grissmer’s 1987 slasher classic, Blood Rage.
Todd, Terry, which is which? One is a homicidal maniac and the other is a sweet young man who wouldn’t harm a fly. They are identical twins. That’s your set-up for this twisted (including a nifty “twist” ending) slasher flick starring Mark Soper (The In Crowd, Swordfish, etc.) as both Todd and Terry, with Louise Lasser as his mother.
The opening hook is a slaughter sequence at a drive-in theatre and Todd is revealed as an out-of-his-mind killer. Locked away, time passes and now it’s time for things to get really messy as Todd escapes and goes on a killing spree. Or is it Todd? Could it be Terry? One thing is for certain, guess wrong and you’re dead!
Bonus goodies include commentary from director John Grissmer, alternate opening titles, a stills gallery, the featurette titled “Return to Shadow Woods” and video sessions with actress/producer Marianne Kanter, actors Mark Soper, Louise Lasser and Ted Raimi, plus a video session with make-up effects creator Ed French.
