CULT FACTION

For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Blackenstein is coming to BluRay!

On May 30th, Severin Films, ​in association with Xenon Pictures ​and Vinegar Syndrome​, ​invites you to experience Mary Shelly’s horror classic through a Vietnam-shattered, micro-budget, entrail-smothered lens.

After years of lifeless home video presentations, Severin is proud to re-animate this lumbering monster​ with an immaculate transfer of the rarely seen original theatrical cut AND ​a new assembly of the home video release version, Frankensteined together from the best existing elements!

You may have heard of this infamous Blaxploitation/Horror hybrid, but the real story is even more bizarre:  In 1973, criminal-lawyer-turned-wannabe-monster-movie-mogul Frank R. Saletri wrote and produced this grindhouse hit about a Black soldier mortally wounded in Vietnam transformed into a rampaging monster by an L.A. mad scientist. Almost a decade later, Saletri himself would be murdered gangland-style in a crime that remains debated – and unsolved – to this day. John Hart (The Lone Ranger), ‘40s Hollywood starlet Andrea King (THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS) and even former mob moll/stripper Liz Renay (DESPERATE LIVING) star in this jaw-dropper directed by William A. Levey (THE HAPPY HOOKER GOES TO WASHINGTON), now with all-new Special Features that spotlight the entire twisted saga!

Special Features:

*Theatrical Release Version (78 Mins.) and Video Release Version (87 Mins.)

*Monster Kid: Interview with Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri’s Sister, June Kirk

*Archive News Broadcast On The Murder Of Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri

*Producers / Directors / Actors Ken Osborne And Robert Dix Remember Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri

*Bill Created Blackenstein: Interview With Creature Designer Bill Munns

*Theatrical Trailer
