Ah the 80′s. Gotta love some of the slasher flicks that graced the video store shelves back in the day. Some VHS cover’s just screamed out to be rented – such was 1981′s ‘Graduation Day’. I still remember walking into the video store and seeing that cover on the shelf. It’s good to see that CAV Distributing stuck with the iconic imagery for this upcoming Blu-ray release.
So, you’ve probably guessed by now – ‘Graduation Day’ is heading to Blu and here’s all the info you need to know.
Sept. 9th is release day and if you’ve never treated yourself to this one – here’s what you can 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!
The film stars Christopher George, Patch Mackenzie, Michael Pataki, Linnea Quigley, Vanna White, E.J. Peaker and here is what you’ll be seeing as far as special features on the release:
