Revolver Entertainment has set an April 6 DVD release date for Gerard Johnson’s British serial-killer film TONY, and passed on the content details for the disc. The movie, which recently premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and has already won critical raves, is a case study of an alienated Londoner (Peter Ferdinando) whose mental downward spiral leads him to murder.
• Audio commentary by writer/director Johnson, star Ferdinando and producer Dan McCulloch
• Johnson’s original TONY short film
• Johnson’s short crime drama MUG
Retail price is $19.98; you can see TONY’s official website here. Revolver also gave Fango the scoop that it will release another UK fright film, Lawrence Gough’s SALVAGE, to Stateside disc July 6, and gave us an exclusive look at the preliminary cover art (see below). Scripted by Colin O’Donnell, the movie is set in a cul-de-sac neighborhood that is plunged into horrific chaos on Christmas Eve when a mysterious container washes ashore on a nearby beach, and the military soon places the area under lockdown. Specs are to be announced, and retail price for this one will also be $19.98. Look for a set-visit report on SALVAGE in a future issue of Fango.
