Synapse Films returns with an new, remastered Blu-ray release of THOU SHALT NOT KILL… EXCEPT and a Rondo Hatton Award nomination for their release of EMBODIMENT OF EVIL.
Don May, Jr, President of Synapse Films has gone back to the digital drawing board to remaster THOU SHALT NOT KILL… EXCEPT properly. Synapse had hired an unnamed company to handle the transfer which unfortunately sent back unusable files—unusuable at least by a company of the caliber of Synapse Films. The entire film has been re-remastered for the best possible transfer and the best possible release. The full story, written by Don, is available here: THOU SHALT NOT KILL… EXCEPT TRANSFER
Synapse Films proudly presents THOU SHALT NOT KILL… EXCEPT in an all-new 2K high-definition transfer from the original negative. Directed by Josh Becker, this “must see” (Detroit Free Press) cult classic features many of the creative personnel responsible for THE EVIL DEAD, including co-writer Bruce Campbell, writer/producer Scott Spiegel (INTRUDER), composer Joseph LoDuca, and actor Ted Raimi. The new release date is APRIL 10, 2012.
