Troma Unleashes Combat Shock

In their never-ending quest to put out the finest in obscure entertainment, Troma announced today that they’re releasing Buddy Giovinazzo’s Combat Shock as a two-disc never-before-seen director’s cut on July 28th, 2009.

That’s right, kids, as if this movie weren’t hard enough to sit through already, we’re getting even more of it! Check out the synopsis, specs, and cover art below.

Official Synopsis
“Frankie Dunlan is a Vietnam veteran whose life is a festering sewer of poverty, hopelessness and violence. His wife is pregnant and hungry. His one-year-old son is sick and horribly deformed from exposure to Agent Orange. His family is being evicted from their rundown apartment. He roams the streets looking for work. His childhood friend is a strung-out junkie. He sees underage prostitutes working the streets. Yet he doesn’t give up hope. Maybe there’s a job at the unemployment office. Maybe his father will help. As Frankie returns returns home, he finds a way out of the horror — desperate times call for desperate measures.
