Horror fans, get ready to laugh with some of the genre's greats. Brutal Massacre: A Comedy is coming to DVD on July 22. The disc will be priced at $26.97 SRP. The film features such horror icons as David Naughton, Gunnar Hansen, Ken Foree and Vincent Butta... in comedic roles.
Harry Penderecki, (Naughton) a once heralded horror auteur who now finds himself on the outside looking in at Hollywood. Though renowned for such groundbreaking horror classics as I'll Take the Ring Back and the Finger Too! and Sasquatch at the Mall, he hasn't had a hit in a while and most in the industry have scratched his name off their "A" list.
But Harry isn't completely down and out. He's embarking on what he hopes to be his return to the big leagues with Brutal Massacre. Reuniting his longtime filmmaking team, Harry also has the entire production shadowed by documentarian Bert Campbell (Butta). But what starts as a successful convention appearance announcing the start of filming quickly devolves into a battle of Sisyphean proportions to capture even a single, usable frame of footage. Between incompetent special effects artists, temperamental actors, bad location advice, sexual shenanigans, on-set tragedies and the usual budget overruns, Harry struggles to keep his sanity while facing overwhelming obstacles to finish the picture and find himself at the top once again.
