Happy Valentine's Day, splatter fans. It is on February 14th that Intervision Picture Corps and Severin Films will be releasing Olaf Ittenbach's The Burning Moon on DVD. This 1990s shot-on-VHS video nasty was banned for it's over-the-top carnage, the likes of which haven't been seen on screen since H.G. Lewis. More details on the special edition DVD, along with some NSFW stills, are after the jump.
From the press release: "In 1992, writer/director/special effects master Olaf Ittenbach changed the face of video horror, force-fed its ripped-out eyeballs to screaming audiences, then used a drill, machete and shotgun on its still-twitching torso: Ittenbach himself stars as a degenerate junkie who babysits his young sister with two bedtime stories of the damned. First, an escaped serial killer turns date night into a graphic family massacre. Then a country priest on a rape and murder spree leads to a disturbingly explicit descent into Hell. It became the VHS that shocked America. It has been banned in its Motherland for nearly 20 years. And it remains perhaps the most violent and depraved shot-on-video saga in history. This is THE BURNING MOON."
In addition to the uncut film, a rare, recently discovered 45-minute documentary on the making of The Burning Moon is also included on the disc.
