Arrow Films is Set to Bring Forgotten 80's Slasher 'Blood Rage' to Blu-Ray


If we've said it once, we've said it a million times - Arrow films is really on a role. It's not just the films they have been able to acquire, restore, and bring to Blu-Ray, films like the Mario Bava classic Blood and Black Lace and Brian Yuzna's Society, but the features on the discs of these films has been incredible. But don't take our word for it, check out the info straight from the horses mouth:

"What do you get if you combine Thanksgiving, American TV star Louise Lasser (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman), killer 80s synths and some of the most gruesome special effects in all of slasher history courtesy of Ed (Terminator 2) French. Why, it's Blood Rage of course!

Todd and Terry seem like sweet kids - that is, until one of them takes an axe to face of a fellow patron at the local drive-in. Todd is blamed for the bloody crime and institutionalized, whilst twin brother Terry goes free. Ten years later and, as the family gathers around the table for a Thanksgiving meal, the news comes in that Todd has escaped - and he's heading their way. But has the killer twin in fact been in their midst all along? One thing's for sure, there WILL be blood...

Filmed in 1983 at the tail-end of the slasher golden era but not released until 1987, Blood Rage (also re-cut and released to theaters as Nightmare at Shadow Woods) has been lovingly restored from the original vault materials for its first ever appearance on Blu-ray and DVD. Happy Thankskilling!"
