'Killer Condom' (1996) - 4K UHD / Blu-Ray combo available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - £28.55

Release date: August

"In one of the seediest parts of Midtown, Manhattan, strange things are going down at the aptly-named Hotel Quickie. The male patrons, who use the establishment as a playground for their every sexual whim, are mysteriously getting their genitals bitten off, with bizarre claims abounding about a carnivorous condom on the loose. Assigned to the peculiar case, Sicilian-born cop Luigi Mackeroni is initially skeptical - but the matter soon becomes intensely personal when, during an encounter at the hotel with a young rent boy, he himself is attacked by one of the man-eating prophylactics, losing a testicle in the process. It quickly transpires that the Big Apple is being besieged by an entire army of ravenous rubbers, and Mackeroni must work to crack the case before the emasculation epidemic escalates!

Based on the best-selling adult comic books by Germany’s Ralf König, Martin Walz’s KILLER CONDOM is a delirious horror-comedy in the vein of Frank Henenlotter by way of film noir, and featuring gag-inducing special effects by notorious splatter master Jörg Buttgereit (Nekromantik, Schramm) along with Academy Award-winner H. R. Giger (Alien, Species) serving as creative consultant. Finally unleashed in its never-before-released director’s cut (in addition to the theatrical version) and newly restored in 4K from its original camera negative by the mad celluloid scientists at Vinegar Syndrome, KILLER CONDOM crawls up from the sewers in its worldwide UHD debut - endowed with a girthy array of both brand new and archival extras, offering film fans plenty to sink their teeth into!

Dark Star have just announced ‘Hitman’s Hero’ as an OCN Partner Label Release. Not sure why they didn’t go with the original title of ‘Sensitive New Age Killer’. I have been waiting years to upgrade the Subversive Cinema DVD from the Savage Sinema Collection so I jumped on it straight away.
