'Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except!' Hits Blu-Ray

Synapse Films is releasing exploitation classic Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except! on Blu-Ray and DVD - and there is a good chance you won't want to miss it. The flick stars Sam Raimi as a "Manson-like cult leader" in a story co-written by Bruce Campbell. The flick also features Evil Dead franchise stars Ted Raimi, Timothy Patrick Quill, Scott Spiegel, and composer Joe LoDuca. Check out all the meaty special features after the jump.

From the press release: Vietnam, 1969. War is Hell. For Marine Sergeant Jack Stryker (Brian Schulz), however, Hell is just the beginning. Trapped outside a Viet Cong village, Stryker takes two bullets to the leg. Sent home from the war, he discovers his ex-girlfriend (Cheryl Hausen) has been kidnapped by a religious cult with a vicious Manson-like leader (played by THE EVIL DEAD and SPIDER-MAN trilogy director, Sam Raimi). Stryker teams up with his marine buddies to form an assassination squad to annihilate the gang of crazed killers.

The blu-ray is jam-packed with special features including a making-of featurette; audio commentaries from director Josh Becker, writer Bruce Campbell, and star Brian Schulz; an alternate title sequence; and the original 8mm short film "Stryker's War" on which the feature was based. The high-def 2K picture was restored from the original negatives. The disc set lands March 13th, 2012.
