Round Out the April Slate from Severin Films

On April 27th, Severin Films is bringing the greatest work of one of cinema’s true visionaries to UHD with over 8 hours of special features across 4 discs, and also going wild with a trio of “nature revolts” exploitation gems. Joining Jodorowsky’s SANTA SANGRE on April’s roster are Severin hall of famer Joe D’Amato, chumming the waters with his sharksploitation entry DEEP BLOOD, and ill-fated genre maverick William Girdler‘s duo of rampaging carnivorous beast flicks: GRIZZLY and DAY OF THE ANIMALS.

SANTA SANGRE

It has been hailed as “extraordinary” (The Guardian), “visionary and haunting” (Rolling Stone) and “a grand work of art, full of symbols and imagery that reach beyond language to something primal and original” (AV Club). Now forget everything you have ever seen as the modern masterpiece from director Alejandro Jodorowsky returns like never before, with 8+ hours of archival & all-new Special Features. Severin Films is proud to present this 4-Disc Deluxe Edition of Jodorowsky’s epic odyssey through ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness – and the surreal genius behind it all – now featuring a 4K scan from the original negative supervised by the director himself.

GRIZZLY

Less than a year after the release of Steven Spielberg’s shark blockbuster, director William Girdler (DAY OF THE ANIMALS) and infamous distributor Film Ventures International (GREAT WHITE) brazenly unleashed their own ‘JAWS with claws’ sensation that would become one of the most successful independent horror films in history. Christopher George (PIECES), Andrew Prine (BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD) and Richard Jaeckel (THE DARK) star in this “bloody, sexy and immortal trash classic” (Mondo Digital) about an 18-foot-tall ursus arctos horribilis on a carnivorous rampage through a state park full of campers, and the ranger, chopper pilot and naturalist who must stop it. GRIZZLY now roars with a 2K scan from the internegative plus Special Features produced exclusively for this edition.

DAY OF THE ANIMALS

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the wilderness, director William Girdler and producer Ed Montoro sought to top their surprise blockbuster GRIZZLY with a bigger budget, larger cast, and even more nature-gone-berserk carnage: When a hole in the Earth’s ozone layer triggers bloodthirsty madness throughout the animal kingdom, all mankind – particularly a group of tourists on an overnight hike – will become their prey. Christopher GeorgeLynda Day GeorgeRichard JaeckelMichael AnsaraAndrew Stevens and Leslie Nielsen – in his now-legendary pre-AIRPLANE! performance that “is worth the price of admission alone” (DVD Talk) – star in “one of the most outrageous offerings the drive-in has ever known” (Pop Matters), now featuring a 2K scan from the internegative and howling with Special Features produced exclusively for this edition.

DEEP BLOOD

From infamous producer Harry Novak – whose Box Office International Pictures brought the world such classics as AXE, MANTIS IN LACE and WHAM BAM THANK YOU, SPACEMAN – comes the still-startling sickie about a pair of L.A.P.D. detectives hunting a transvestite psychopath through a polyester jungle of massage parlor perverts, suburban sex fiends, violence-crazed cops and “one of the worst examples of cross-dressing ever filmed” (Digitally Obsessed). Joshua Bryant (ENTER THE DEVIL), Sandy Carey (DRIVE-IN MASSACRE), Linda York (CHAIN GANG WOMEN) and Sharon Kelly (aka ‘80s adult film superstar Colleen Brennan) star in this “garish display of rampant depravity” (Pulp International) directed by Carl Monson (PLEASE DON’T EAT MY MOTHER!), now scanned uncut in 2K from the original negative and throbbing with Special Features.
