Slasher MADMAN To Receive Limited Edition Arrow Video 4K UHD Release





Madman 4k UHD

Arrow Video are set to release slasher MADMAN on limited edition 4K UHD in the UK on 24th June 2024.

Gather around the campfire, and hear the tale of Madman Marz – an ill-tempered farmer who, one dark night, chopped up his wife and two children into pieces. When the locals learned of his heinous crimes, they exacted revenge – sinking an axe into his head and hanging him from a nearby tree. But the next day, Marz’s body was gone…

Thus the camp counsellor finishes his tale, closing with the warning never to say Marz’s name above a whisper, lest the hideously-deformed farmer comes looking for them. Naturally, the first thing that one of the young campers does is calls out Marz’s name – precipitating a terrifying night of murder, mayhem and sexy Jacuzzi vignettes!

Inspired by the same Cropsey urban legend which informed 1981’s The Burning and starring Dawn of the Dead’s Gaylen Ross (appearing under the pseudonym ‘Alexis Dubin’), Madman stands as one of the finest offerings from the golden age of hack ‘n’ slash.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
