Laserblast Goes Blu-ray!


Bless you, Full Moon! Charles Band stated during his appearance on Brainwaves: Horror and Paranormal Talk Radio that cult classic Laserblast is coming to Blu-ray for the very first time, and we are elated! Read on for a few more details.

From the Press Release:
Crawling up from Full Moon’s primordial ooze is Laserblast, a bona fide Charles Band classic and one of the weirdest science fiction tales ever told!

Happy go-lucky Billy Duncan discovers an otherworldly laser gun in the southern California desert, making him the target of a pair of aliens (rendered in stop-motion by the late, great David Allen) who recently executed its previous owner. As Billy revels in the power of the weapon, he begins to change, his skin taking on a green hue and his mind becoming more and more malevolent. As the tainted teen becomes more powerful and lethal, it’s up to the local authorities and the aliens to stop him before he blasts his way to oblivion!

Laserblast co-stars the legendary Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes, Fright Night) and Keenan Wynn (Kiss Me Kate, Clonus) and marks the first appearace of nerd icon Eddie Deezan. It also makes the first feature length score by Joel Goldsmith (son of Jerry) and Richard Band.

Laserblast appears here for the first time on Blu-ray in High-Def on October 10, 2017, remastered from the original 35mm answer print. Special features include a BRAND NEW feature-length commentary by Charles and Richard Band.

Prepare to get BLASTED!
