The first AGFA title (of dozens) in a collaboration with Something Weird
heels of a successful 2015 Kickstarter campaign
AGFA (American Genre
Film Archive), a non-profit that preserves the legacy of genre films, is
pleased to announce details for THE
ZODIAC KILLER Blu-ray, which will be released on July 25!
This is the first title of dozens in our collaboration with Something Weird Video
following a successful 2015 Kickstarter campaign.
by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of Pizza Man restaurants,
THE ZODIAC KILLER
was made to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn't work.
Instead, we got the most outrageous and compelling "tabloid
horror" vortex in the history of planet Earth. And beyond. During
theatrical screenings, Hanson constructed in-theater "traps" to
lure the killer from hiding. These included the use of an ice cream
freezer filled with rent-a-cops and a raffle with a motorcycle as a
prize. You won't get insight like this by watching a David Fincher movie.
