Did You Hear That 'Thundercrack!' on Blu-ray?

Posted Tue Oct 6, 2015 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The 1975 erotic film will be released on Blu-ray in December.

In an early announcement to retailers, Synapse Films will be releasing 'Thundercrack!' on Blu-ray on December 8.

Witness if you dare... THUNDERCRACK!... the world's only underground kinky art horror film. With the initial setup of an atmospheric gothic tale a dark and stormy night breakdown featuring a creepy old house on the hill, it quickly turns eerie and different. A tour de force of underground filmmaking with a plot beyond description, this film fully exposes itself with amazing dialogue and trash-noir lighting through which to peer at the pickles, the puke and the polymorphs.

In 1975, Curt McDowell and writer/actor George Kuchar created the utterly brilliant THUNDERCRACK!, a film not recommended for those with tender sensibilities. A true cult classic that has shocked, excited and amazed audiences worldwide for 40 years, this presentation is the first ever official North American video release!

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements include: Rare archival interview segments with director Curt McDowell presented as audio commentary; BLU-RAY EXCLUSIVE Bonus Feature - IT CAME FROM KUCHAR (87 minutes): Directed by Jennifer Kroot; Documentary about the twin underground filmmakers George and Mike Kuchar; and BLU-RAY EXCLUSIVE: An additional BONUS DVD loaded with fun additional extras! Rare interviews, short films, THUNDERCRACK! audition footage, outtakes and MORE!
