Thundercrack! - 160 Minute Original Cut on the Way

US Release is 40 Minutes Longer Than in Theaters

Curt McDowell's weird indie movie Thundercrack! has its 40th anniversary and Synapse Film honors this by releasing a DVD and Blu-ray edition that contains the movie's original version. Newly restored, the film is 40 minutes longer than the theatrical version which only lasted 120 minutes and was released that way in several countries.

Years in the making! The highly-anticipated restoration of the underground film classic Thundercrack! Will finally be unleashed to the public!
Witness if you dare... THUNDERCRACK!... the world's only underground kinky art horror film. With the initial setup of an atmospheric gothic tale, a dark and stormy night breakdown featuring a creepy old house on the hill, it quickly turns eerie and different. A tour de force of underground filmmaking with a plot beyond description, this film fully exposes itself with amazing dialogue and trash-noir lighting through which to peer at the pickles, the puke and the polymorphs.

In 1975, Curt McDowell and writer/actor George Kuchar created the utterly brilliant THUNDERCRACK!, a film not recommended for those with tender sensibilities. A true cult classic that has shocked, excited and amazed audiences worldwide for 40 years, this presentation is the first ever official North American video release!

The DVD and Blu-ray are available in the US since December 8th, 2015.
