If you’ve never witnessed the sheer unbridled lunacy of Jim VanBebber’s The Manson Family, then do yourself a favor – correct that cinema sin NOW. Or even better wait just a bit longer and see the flick like never before on the big screen and in 1080p!
From the Press Release
Severin Films announces the May 7th Blu-ray debut of Jim VanBebber’s legendary, award-winning indie THE MANSON FAMILY on the 10th anniversary of its original release. US theatrical dates in 20 major cities are scheduled through March and April, and new poster artwork has been created by artist Stephen Romano for the occasion. VanBebber’s highly anticipated new short GATOR GREEN will accompany many of the screenings and will also be included in the extras-packed Special Edition Blu-ray release.
The theatrical run launches at Landmark Theatres locations in Denver and San Francisco on March 22nd and will continue through April, taking in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Boston and many more (see below for a partial list of engagements, with more to be announced in the coming weeks).
THE MANSON FAMILY delivers an uncompromising, brutal vision of the collapse of the “Love Generation.” On a ranch outside of LA the hippie dream is perverting into something evil. What was once an oasis of free love and acid trips has become ground zero for a madman’s paranoid visions. An average group of kids, the “Family,” become engulfed in a delusional world where torment and slaughter are considered the path to righteousness. The Manson Family is a dizzying, rapid-fire vision of the sex and violence that unifies the misguided group and, at the direction of their leader, ends in a brutal spree leaving seven people dead in 48 hours. Now re-mastered in stunning HD for the first time ever in America. Extras include an all-new director’s commentary, the brand new short GATOR GREEN, the uncut version of the previously censored feature-length documentary THE VANBEBBER FAMILY on the film’s near-mythic production, and much more.
Severin Films was formed in 2006 with offices in Los Angeles and London. The company produced the acclaimed 2012 horror anthology THE THEATRE BIZARRE, and their previous releases include Richard Stanley’s restored HARDWARE, the all-star war classic THE WILD GEESE, the unrated Director’s Cut of Just Jaeckin’s GWENDOLINE, Enzo Castellari’s original action classic INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, Oscar®-nominee Patrice Leconte’s THE HAIRDRESSER’S HUSBAND, the midnight movie sensation BIRDEMIC – SHOCK & TERROR, Eugenio Martin’s restored HORROR EXPRESS, and Alejandro Jodorowsky’s incomparable masterpiece SANTA SANGRE.
