Peaches Christ‘s (aka. writer-director Joshua Grannell) long-lost campy cult favorite ALL ABOUT EVIL is finally coming to Blu-ray in a special edition on June 10 courtesy of Severin Films, with a debut on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder to follow on June 13. Initially released in a limited theatrical run in 2010 after its premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival, the film has been virtually unavailable to fans for over a decade.
ALL ABOUT EVIL stars Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll) as Deborah Tennis, a “mousy librarian” who takes over her father’s struggling movie theater. When a series of shocking murders are caught on camera, the theater gets a new lease on life and Deborah channels her inner serial killer to become the new queen of indie splatter cinema.
The special edition Blu-ray will feature a new HD restoration of the film along with newly-produced and archival bonus features.
“For years, the movie has been unavailable and fans have been clamoring for it,” says Christ. “As the creator, it’s been frustrating, to say the least. I feel like I’ve been given a great gift from both Severin and Shudder and [I] am thrilled so many new people will discover my evil little baby. The Blu-ray and features are truly stunning. I’m really proud of the film, and I’m hoping the re-release helps get another feature film going!”
