Drafthouse Films Bringing Bat Shit Crazy 'Dangerous Men' To DVD and Blu-Ray

Dubbed "The Holy Grail of Holy Fucking Shit" seminal film Dangerous Men will be released by Drafthouse Films on DVD/Blu Ray for the first time ever this April. After releasing important mind-bending films like The Visitor and Miami Connection, joins an already impressive line up of films from Drafthouse. Both the DVD and Blu Ray come chocked full of awesome extras. Check out the synopsis for the film, the poster, the trailer, and a bunch of other shit we choose to cut and paste from the press release.

"After Mina watches her fiance's brutal murder by beach thugs, she sets out on a venomous spree to eradicate all human trash from Los Angeles. Armed with a knife, a gun, and an undying rage she murders her way through masculine half of the cities population. A renegade cop is hot on her heels, a trail that also leads to the subhuman criminal overlord known as Black Pepper."

"The fanatical brainchild of Iranian polymath John S. RadDangerous Men is a passion project that remained in obsessive production for nearly two decades before finally debuting in Californian theaters in 2005. An unflappably prodigious creative force, Rad handled much of the technical duties of the film, appearing multiple times in the film's credits as the director, writer, location scout, producer, executive producer, and more. 

Despite initially languishing at the box office during its limited theatrical release, and never finding a likeminded audience before Rad's untimely death in 2007, Dangerous Men developed a devoted following before vanishing as mysteriously as it appeared. Working with the late artist's family, the Drafthouse Films team worked tirelessly alongside the American Genre Film Institute to locate and restore the original film. Dangerous Men was re-released back into theaters in October 2015, garnering enthusiastically baffled acclaim from critics including Rolling Stone, who called it "incomprehensibly riveting", Cut Print Film labels as "Flabbergasting...a gonzo work of art" and The Village Voice
, who found the film "astonishing...a truly outsider movie made my a lone auteur."
