Two Versions Of The Most Notorious Blaxploitation Shocker Of Them All…

And The Most Insane Backstory Ever.

You may have heard of this infamous Blaxploitation/Horror hybrid, but the real story is even more bizarre:  In 1973, criminal-lawyer-turned-wannabe-monster-movie-mogul Frank R. Saletri wrote and produced this grindhouse hit about a Black soldier mortally wounded in Vietnam transformed into a rampaging monster by an L.A. mad scientist. Almost a decade later, Saletri himself would be murdered gangland-style in a crime that remains debated – and unsolved – to this day. John Hart (TV’s “The Lone Ranger”), ‘40s Hollywood starlet Andrea King (THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS) and even former mob moll/stripper Liz Renay (DESPERATE LIVING) star in this jaw-dropper directed by William A. Levey (THE HAPPY HOOKER GOES TO WASHINGTON), now restored with all-new Special Features that spotlight the entire twisted saga!

Special Features:

Theatrical Release Version (78 Mins.) and Video Release Version (87 Mins.)
Monster Kid: Interview with Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri’s Sister, June Kirk
Archive News Broadcast On The Murder Of Writer / Producer Frank R. Saletri
