Larry Cohen's 1976 thriller in the works for Blu-ray has now been fully detailed.
As previously reported, Blue Underground will be releasing 'God Told Me To' on Blu-ray in the coming months, and now the date has been set for February 24.
A rooftop sniper guns down 14 pedestrians on the streets of New York City. A mild-mannered dad takes a shotgun and blows away his wife and children. A cop goes on a sudden shooting spree at the St. Patrick's Day Parade. And each of these unlikely killers makes the same dying confession: "God told me to."
Now a repressed Catholic NYPD detective must uncover a netherworld of deranged faith, alien insemination and his own unholy connection to a homicidal messiah with a perverse plan for the soul of mankind. This is the critically acclaimed cult classic written, produced and directed by Larry Cohen that remains one of the most disturbing and though-provoking horror films of our time: God Told Me To.
The Blu-ray will feature a brand-new 4K high definition transfer from the original uncensored negative, a lossless 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary with writer/director/producer Larry Cohen; Heaven and Hell on Earth - Interview with Star Tony Lo Bianco; Bloody Good Times - Interview with Special Makeup Effects Artist Steve Neil; God Told Me To Bone - New Beverly Q&A with Larry Cohen; Lincoln Center Q&A with Larry Cohen; Theatrical Trailers & TV Spots; and Poster & Still Gallery.
