The 1976 cult action film is planned for a Blu-ray release in November.
In an early announcement to retailers, Vinegar Syndrome is preparing 'Death Machines' for Blu-ray on November 29.
Madame Lu has created three 'Death Machines', a trio of martial arts experts who have been injected with a special serum, turning them into mindless zombies, capable only of murder, at Lu's command. Tasked with eliminating her enemies, the Death Machines go on a blood soaked rampage, killing anyone in their path. After they massacre an entire dojo, leaving only one survivor, the Death Machines and Madame Lu herself become the targets of his vengeance...
Part kung fu film, part revenge thriller, and part sci-fi/horror, director Paul Kyriazi's debut feature is a head spinning, non-stop thrill ride of gratuitous violence and bizarre plot twists, guaranteed to satisfy the cinematic cravings of even the most discriminating fans of drive-in movies.
Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present this outlandish, action packed, and truly unforgettable piece of mid-70s genre filmmaking, freshly restored in 4k from its original Techniscope camera negative and featuring brand new interviews with its director and stars.
The release will feature a NEW 4K Restoration from the 35mm Techniscope camera negative and supplements will include: Audio Commentary track with director Paul Kyriazi; Director introduction; Video interview with actor Michael Chong; Audio interview with actor Joshua Johnson; Trims/outtakes; Original theatrical trailer; Teaser trailer; and Reversible cover artwork.
