Horror fans rejoice! On May 26th, Blue Underground is releasing the classic horror flicks Maniac and Zombie in true 4K Ultra High Definition with Dolby Vision HDR plus a new Dolby Atmos audio mix. What’s even better is that the movies will come with hours of new and archival extras.

Blue Underground President William Lustig commented, “We put a lot of time and work into restoring films like Maniac and Zombie. We’re thrilled that fans can now view them at home in true 4K Ultra HD, with Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range and new Dolby Atmos audio mixes.”

Maniac Info:

– Frank Zito (a career performance by writer/executive producer Joe Spinell of Rocky and The Godfather fame) is a deeply disturbed man, haunted by the traumas of unspeakable childhood abuse. And when these horrific memories begin to scream inside his mind, Frank prowls the seedy streets of New York City to stalk and slaughter innocent young women. Now Frank has begun a relationship with a beautiful photographer (Caroline Munro of The Spy Who Loved Me), yet his vile compulsions remain. These are the atrocities of a human monster. This is the story of a Maniac.

Zombie Info:

– In Italy, it was considered the “unofficial sequel” to Dawn Of The Dead. In England, it was known as Zombie Flesh Eaters and banned as obscene. In America, it was called Zombie and advertised with the depraved tag line “We Are Going To Eat You!” Tisa Farrow (The Grim Reaper), Ian McCulloch (Contamination), Al Cliver (Cannibals), and Richard Johnson (The Haunting) star in this worldwide splatter sensation directed by “Maestro Of Gore” Lucio Fulci (The House By The Cemetery, The New York Ripper) that remains one of the most eye-skewering, skin-ripping, gore-gushingly graphic horror hits of all time!
