What's happening with 'Mardi Gras Massacre'?

I pre-ordered it from Amazon in April, when it had a release date of June 27th. According to my order, it is "Arriving Sat, 2 Jul". However, the listing on Amazon states it is "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock". I put that down to it being a limited edition where the number of copies that have been allocated to Amazon how already been sold

Looking at the 88Films website, however, the film has a 'placeholder' price of 888.88 and it states that "THIS HAS BEEN DELAYED. RELEASED 26/09/2022"

I've not seen anything on FaceBook or Twitter, so has anyone heard anything?

A few films have had their release dates changed.

Originally my theory was that this one wouldn't have sold as well as per the comments and therefore was going to add more features.

Also the price seemed to be going doing from 25 to around 18

Delaying week before release is a joke. Possible copyright issues like Blood Harvest? I hope they explain why this has happened. Really poor, I mean they've just licenced the Severin disc for gods sake. How can they screw it up?

I just received an email from 88 Films with a refund notification for my order of Mardi Gras Massacre. There were no other details, so I've no idea why I've been refunded.

For whatever reason, perhaps it isn't being released at all.

A Blood Harvest-type situation again?

The original artwork is superior to the film!

Pushed back to September apparently....
