Creepy and atmospheric Euro-horror with Klaus Kinski was based on stories by Edgar Wallace, the guy who wrote the original King Kong and several murder thrillers. Originally produced as THE BLUE HAND, the story has Kinski playing twins. One is an insane killer who kills people with a garden-claw like weapon, and the other an innocent victim.
Roger Corman purchased the original film and released it under the title of THE CREATURE WITH THE BLUE HAND. Sam Sherman at Independent International picked up the movie for it’s video release, decided to add some extra blood and gore to the film, and released it to video under the title THE BLOODY DEAD.
Cult makeup and effects man, Ed French, did the extra gore and plays the main lunatic in the added opening asylum scenes. In addition to the inserted asylum scene, Sam Sherman inserted gore into all of the films existing murder scenes. Included here are both version of the film as they were released to US markets over the years. Includes commentary from Sam Sherman, trailers, and more. Out-of-print DVD.
