Mardi Gras Massacre (1978) (Special Edition) Available June 28

NANCY DANCER DIED ON FEBRUARY 13, 1978. THAT WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING.

With only five films, New Orleans-based writer/producer/director Jack Weis became one of the most enigmatic figures in ’70s exploitation. And for his final trashterpiece, Weis delivered a filth-fueled, disco-drenched and gore-soaked epic of butchered hookers, hard-boiled homicide cops and a prissy psycho with an Aztec sacrifice fetish that remains a once-in-a-lifetime sleaze experience.

Curt Dawson (Blood Bath), Ronald Tanet (Crypt Of Dark Secrets) and February ’75 Playboy Playmate Laura Misch star in this “shocking-yet-hysterical fever dream of regional filmmaking” (Bleeding Skull) with a soundtrack by Dennis Coffey & Mike Theodore (Black Belt Jones) and still banned in the UK as one of the original DPP 39 Video Nasties, now featuring a 2K master compiled from the best surviving post-Katrina elements and a revealing new interview with Weis himself.

STARRING: Curt Dawson, Gwen Arment, William Metzo, Laura Misch Owens
