Genre Grinder On Blu-ray!

Hours of watching shot-on-video horror movies has finally paid off. Culture Shock Releasing has announced the Blu-ray debut of shot-on-video, shot-in-Tucson supernatural slasher Death Magic and they have included a clip from Genre Grinder Episode 31: Shot-on-Video Horror – Addendum (Part 1 of 2), featuring Gabe and friend of the show Patrick Ripoll (listen to the complete episode right here). What follows is the complete press release via Culture Shock's Facebook:

The Arizona-based, no-budget, shot-on-video, 1992 horror movie DEATH MAGIC directed by the late Paul Clinco is coming to disc for the first time ever!

Written and directed by emergency room doctor/novelist Paul Clinco, Death Magic is Tuscon-lensed Civil War black magic SVHS slasher epic you never knew you needed! Full of Arizona flavor (and early 90's suburban vibes), Death Magic delivers on every level. It takes several cues from the Nightmare on Elm Street films, and blends in director Clinco's own obsessions with the occult, for one of the most unique pieces of no-budget regional horror ever created.

This presentation of Death Magic was created using the highest quality SVHS materials available, and restored with the director's guidance and supervision. Culture Shock Releasing is proud to present Death Magic for the first time on disc.

Special Features:

  • Feature-length commentary by Director Paul Clinco

  • Rough cut ending featuring extended gore sequences

  • Excerpt from Genre Grinder podcast about Death Magic

  • Comparison of available video sources

  • Behind the scenes still gallery

  • Gallery of reviews and synopses
