Arrow Video Set to Release 80s Slasher 'Edge of the Axe' on UK Blu-Ray

Arrow Video has just announced the UK, US and Canadian Blu-Ray release of José Ramón Larraz 80s slasher flick Edge of the Axe, debuting on January 27th, 2020. Cover artwork and special features are listed below, including a direct pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

From cult Spanish filmmaker José Ramón Larraz (Vampyres, Symptoms) comes this long-neglected late 80s slasher classic, finally unleashed on Blu-ray for the first time ever!

Synopsis: “The rural community of Paddock County is being rocked by the crazed exploits of an axe-wielding psychopath, who stalks the night in a black trenchcoat and mask. As the victims pile up, the authorities attempt to keep a lid on the situation, whilst computer whizz-kid Gerald and girlfriend Lillian seek to unmask the killer before the town population reaches zero.

Nominally set in Northern California but shot primarily in Madrid, giving the film an off-kilter, American/European atmosphere akin to the likes of Pieces, Edge of the Axe is a late entry hack-and-slash masterpiece from one of the titans of Spanish terror.
