Thou Shalt Not Kill… Except on Blu-Ray Combo Disc.

 I’m not sure that it’s the best time of the year to be disavowing any of God’s commandments… Santa’s coming… naughty list… you get it, but it’s clearly time to write your “I didn’t get this for Christmas” list.  With rumors of an Evil Dead remake which are clearly more than just misguided bloggers (uh hmmm) raping the internet for clues, this release is sure to give us all the Raimi/Campbell fix we’ve been so desiring. Full release notes to follow:

Sent home from the war, he discovers his ex-girlfriend (Cheryl Hausen) has been kidnapped by a religious cult with a vicious Manson-like leader (played by THE EVIL DEAD and SPIDER-MAN trilogy director, Sam Raimi).

Dr. Jimmy Terror, more commonly known as James P. Harris, has been “writing your eyes” shut since 2010 with his horror themed blog Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors (whose name is a play on words derived from the Amicus film, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors). In the early 2000’s he fronted the band The Vaudeville Vampires, a short-lived Horrorabilly band which saw the creation of a catalog of horror related songs before disbanding (with only one, six song demo ever being produced and distributed). He has had only one on screen appearance to date in the horror/suspense short, Ocean Parkway, as maniacal, gloved killer with a hair fetish. Having done some un-credited, behind the scenes work in some low budget genre pictures, he is currently working on his first foray into screenwriting with a demonic, retro gore entry that pays homage to Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento as well as other Italian masters of the genre.
