ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS THE GORY, HILARIOUS AND SURPRISINGLY HEARTWARMING
Some Guy Who Kills People
From Executive Producer John Landis. Coming to DVD July 3rd
Beverly Hills, CA - Few films achieve the perfect balance of genuine sincerity, tastefully ironic humor, and the heightened level of blood and guts expected from horror movies. On July 3rd, Anchor Bay Entertainment brings you one of these rare gems with Some Guy Who Kills People. Executive produced by famed director John Landis (National Lampoon's Animal House, An American Werewolf in London, Coming to America), and boasting impeccable performances by Kevin Corrigan (The Departed, Superbad, The Dictator), Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, TV's "Spin City"), Karen Black (Five Easy Pieces, House of 1000 Corpses), Leo Fitzpatrick (Kids, Serendipity), Ariel Gade (AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator-Requiem, Dark Water) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead, TV's "The Office"), this film festival favorite is coming to DVD for an SRP of $22.98. Pre-book is June 5th.
At first glance, Ken Boyd (Corrigan) may seem like an average comic enthusiast, living with his mother and working to make ends meet as an underpaid, underappreciated ice cream parlor attendant. But Ken has a dirty little secret: he fantasizes about killing people. After being released from a stay in the loony bin, for severe mental trauma suffered when he was beaten and tortured by a gang of high school thugs, Ken's repressed anger suddenly reaches a boiling point. He begins to hunt down his tormentors, one by one, and exacts his bloody revenge - all the while forming an unconventional bond with his estranged 11-year old daughter (Gade). The film is written by Ryan Levin (TV's "Scrubs," Disney Channel's "I'm With the Band") and directed by Jack Perez (La Cucaracha, Wild Things 2, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus). Critics have plenty of praise for Some Guy Who Kills People's off-beat charm, with Bloody Disgusting calling it "funny, bloody, really sweet... a welcome breath of fresh air" and Sound on Sight noting, "About halfway through Some Guy Who Kills People, I'd laughed my throat raw."
Bonus features on Some Guy Who Kills People DVD includes such creamy morsels as:
* Audio commentary by director / co-producer Jack Perez and writer / producer Ryan Levin;
* "The Fifth" - short film that inspired Some Guy Who Kills People;
* Featurette: The Making of Some Guy Who Kills People;
* Theatrical trailer
