Director’s Cut Of Combat Shock to be released

Friday, April 10th, 2009 by Sterf

Directors Cut Of Combat Shock to be released   combatshock 84x120 news Troma is about to release the Director’s Cut of the 1986 film Combat Shock. The press-release proclaims thusly:

Troma Team Video is proud to present the 2-Disc Never-Before-Seen Director’s Cut of Buddy Giovinazzo’s dark, nihilistic masterwork ‘Combat Shock’. Combat Shock has remained hidden in the underground video universe for more than 25 years, and has now fully ripened to disgust, revolt and depress a new generation of indie film viewers. Released theatrically in 1986, the film was dismissed mostly by mainstream critics, but scarred the retinas of the indie cult/horror counterculture and is now regarded as one of the supreme classics of 1980s underground cinema. Inspired by true ghastly headlines about tormented war veterans, Giovinazzo centers his story on Frankie Dunlan, a Vietnam veteran whose life is a festering sewer of poverty, hopelessness and violence.

Extra’s include the original cut of the film called American Nightmares, interviews, audio-commentary, three never-before-seen short films and more. To be released on the 28th of July.

Calibro 35 live @ Cinema Nova

Calibro 35 live @ Cinema Nova   calibro35covercr 120x120 news

Bringing you music from an era when Italy was still a free country…

The music of Calibro 35 is a delicious combination of original 60′s & 70′s theme songs and contemporary compositions of their own.

Last friday they performed live at Offscreen Film Festival. Accompanied by visuals, samples and outtakes from many obscure Italian genre films on Cinema Nova’s big silver screen, Calibro 35 gave us a memorable performance. Groovy as hell and psychedelically warped.

At our Offscreen 2009 page you can find a photographic impression of how it all went down… (scroll down to see pics). Alternatively, click on the more to see the pics.
