Umberto Lenzi's Gruesome Giallo Classic 'Eyeball' Gets Limited Edition (UK) Blu-Ray

Umberto Lenzi’s giallo classic Eyeball is getting a very limited to 3000 copies release on UK Blu-Ray via the awesome folks over at 88 Films on August 27th, 2018. Head on down to check out the sick packaging in full detail, including a pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

Released in 1975, Eyeball might just be the late, great Umberto Lenzi’s greatest giallo! Gruesome and gruelling, this torrid tale of a black gloved killer with a fetish for plucking out the peepers of his unlucky victims is a personal favourite of Pulp Fiction genius Quentin Tarantino and it is easy to see why. Boasting plenty of bloodshed and some beautiful Catalonian locations, Eyeball is a murder-mystery that stands up to the best of Mario Bava and Dario Argento and, with its messy arterial mayhem, even anticipates the later excess of such American slasher staples as Friday the 13th! Dare you open your eyes to Eyeball? This essential Italian terror totem is finally available in horrifying HD thanks to the body-count Kings at 88 Films!

Synopsis:
A group of American tourists is traveling through Spain when two of them are murdered by a mysterious serial killer who removes an eyeball from every one of his victims. The tour presses on as the murders continue, with the travelers and the police trying to deduce which one of them is the killer.
