Preview: Combat Shock (Bluray)

Available now, Severin Films just released the definitive edition of Buddy Giovinazzo’s infamous and unforgettable COMBAT SHOCK in a deluxe package, limited to only 2000 units! In addition to a brilliant new transfer of the director’s cut, overseen by Buddy himself, this package is overflowing with exclusive content never before glimpsed by human eyes! This release is only available from the Severin webstore, and no more will be manufactured beyond this wave of 2000.
In 1984, underground audiences began to discover AMERICAN NIGHTMARES, a shockingly grim no-budget feature from Staten Island, NY-based writer/producer/editor/director Buddy Giovinazzo. Cut by 8 minutes and released under the title COMBAT SHOCK, it became one of the essential cult films of the decade. It has been called “relentless” (The New York Times), “visceral” (Montreal Gazette) and “legendary” (DVD Talk). Over 30 years later, it remains one of the most brutally relevant indie film experiences of our time. Severin Films proudly presents this epic limited edition of Giovinazzo’s “outsider art of the first order… an authentic nightmare vision of a man’s downward spiral in a total sewer of a city” (Birth Movies Death), now featuring a new 2k scan supervised by the director, new commentaries and interviews, never-before-seen early shorts, the original soundtrack, and more!
Each disc comes in an individually numbered slipcase signed by Buddy Giovinazzo. The whole package also comes with a collectible book, featuring 96 pages of Buddy G’s Shoot Diary Illustrated With Rare Stills, Storyboards & More!
