Demented Canadian Slasher Massacre Up North Revived on VHS and DVD

Posted on: May 25th, 2016

MassacreDVDBritish Columbia-based indie distributor Shivers Entertainment is launching with a bespoke release of no-budget Canadian gorefest Massacre Up North. The label’s inaugural release will be put out on a very limited (70 copies) VHS, plus a regular-run DVD.

The cheapo, shot-on-video slasher was made in 2001 and is, according to Shivers founder Brenin Barrow, “…one of the bloodiest titles to ever be produced in Canada”.

Here is the official synopsis:
After a camping accident leaves him disfigured and tormented by classmates, Leslie Rejick only has one thing on his mind: revenge! With a hardware store chock-full of deadly tools at his disposal, he leaves behind a merciless path of death and destruction in a small Canadian town. A pair of inept city detectives, determined to track down the killer, enlist the help of eccentric local coroner Patrick. But, Patrick holds a secret of his own, and he ultimately leads the detectives head-on into a bizarre, bloody battle with the psychotic killer.

Check out the utter insanity of the film’s nutbags trailer below, and revel in that familiarly grungy, shot-on-video look, seldom seen since the early ‘90s. We’ve also got a few stills for you. You can order a copy of the film here.

I’m headed there now.
