101 Films presents classic grindhouse horror Meatcleaver Massacre (1976), released on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK. Confined only to drive-ins upon its original release this trippy, telekinetic and brutal occult revenge film has gone on to become an underseen classic of the degenerate 70s schlock genre.
Horror legend Christopher Lee (The Wicker Man, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) stars in this pulse- pounding film where revenge is best served in cold blood. A professor of the occult experiences a shocking tragedy when the “destroyers” - a group of murderous students who fail to believe his tales of the dark forces, brutally attack him and his family and leave them to die. Now in a deep coma and the only survivor of the assault, he calls upon those demonic forces beyond the world of the living to grant him vengeance on these who took everything from him.
