Some Guy Who Kills People brings the gory laughs to DVD

Anchor Bay Entertainment is bringing the gory laughs with the dark comedy Some Guy Who Kills People on DVD July 3rd.

Executive produced by famed director John Landis (National Lampoon’s Animal House, An American Werewolf in London, Coming to America), and boasting impeccable performances by Kevin Corrigan (The Departed, Superbad, The Dictator), Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, TV’s “Spin City”), Karen Black (Five Easy Pieces, House of 1000 Corpses), Leo Fitzpatrick (Kids, Serendipity), Ariel Gade (AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator-Requiem, Dark Water) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead, TV’s “The Office”), this film festival favorite will arrive on DVD with a suggested retail price of $22.98. 
 
At first glance, Ken Boyd (Corrigan) may seem like an average comic enthusiast, living with his mother and working to make ends meet as an underpaid, underappreciated ice cream parlor attendant. But Ken has a dirty little secret: he fantasizes about killing people. After being released from a stay in the loony bin, for severe mental trauma suffered when he was beaten and tortured by a gang of high school thugs, Ken’s repressed anger suddenly reaches a boiling point. 

He begins to hunt down his tormentors, one by one, and exacts his bloody revenge - all the while forming an unconventional bond with his estranged 11-year old daughter (Gade).  The film is written by Ryan Levin (TV’s “Scrubs,” Disney Channel’s “I’m With the Band”) and directed by Jack Perez (La Cucaracha, Wild Things 2, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus). 

Critics have plenty of praise for Some Guy Who Kills People’s off-beat charm, with Bloody Disgusting calling it “funny, bloody, really sweet… a welcome breath of fresh air” and Sound on Sight noting, “About halfway through Some Guy Who Kills People, I’d laughed my throat raw.”

Bonus features on Some Guy Who Kills People DVD includes such creamy morsels as:

Audio commentary by director / co-producer   Jack Perez and writer / producer Ryan   Levin
“The Fifth” – short film that inspired Some Guy Who Kills   People
