The Executioner - Blu-ray Premiere in the US

New HD Restauration of the Director's Cut

The Executioner is an American action thriller made in 1978 and belongs to the category of gangster flicks that are rather overlooked. Still, that doesn't mean that it doesn't deserve the best possible release to present itself to an unsuspecting audience. Grindhouse Releasing thought the same and took some time to put together a 2-disc combo (Blu-ray/DVD) with a digitally restored version of the Director's Cut. We currently don't know how that differs from the original cut but if you want to check it out, here are the specs:

  • Incredible new hi-definition digital restoration of the original director’s cut
  • Stunning digital restoration of the original mono soundtrack
  • Interviews with Jeffrey Mitchell, Frankie Ray, George Jacobs, Jim LoBianco, and exploitation legend Matt Cimber
  • Almost one full hour of never-before-seen Duke Mitchell home movies
  • Lost audio recording – Duke Mitchell Live in Concert, June 9, 1960
  • Bonus TV special – An Impressionistic Tribute to Jimmy Durante
  • Extensive still galleries, radio spots, and theatrical trailer
  • Glossy booklet with rare photos and liner notes by author David Szulkin
  • Spectacular new cover painting by renowned Los Angeles cult artist Dave Lebow
  • Beautiful embossed slip cover
  • And other surprises!

It is titled Massacre Mafia Style and enters US retail on February 10th, 2015. You can order it at Amazon.com.
