Seems like I’ve been reporting on a lot of 80’s slasher fare this summer but I’m not complaining – love these films and it’s great to be seeing so many of them make the trip to Blu-ray. Next up is the 1981 shocker ‘Graduation Day’.
Films from this era had some of the most iconic VHS covers and this film in particular is one that has always stuck in my mind. It’s great to see that CAV stuck with the imagery for this release. If you’ve never treated yourself to this one – here’s what to expect:
After the death of a high school track star during a race, a mysterious, fencing-mask wearing killer begins murdering her friends and teachers. Who could the killer be? Her disgruntled coach? Her angry sister? Her violent boyfriend? As the bodies pile up, a twisted mystery unfolds, slowly revealing itself as it moves towards its bloody climax. One of the quintessential high school set slasher films of the early 80s, Vinegar Syndrome is bringing GRADUATION DAY to blu-ray, newly restored in 4K and presented in its original aspect ratio for the very first time!
I know you want to hear about special features so here you go:
Bonus Features: New 4K restoration from the Camera Negative, + Interview with Producer David Baughn + Interview with Editor Martin Sadoff + Interview with Star Patch Mackenzie.
The film stars Christopher George, Patch Mackenzie, Michael Pataki, Linnea Quigley, Vanna White, E.J. Peaker.
