A classic '70s slasher film—and one of the first big hits of the VHS horror explosion of the early '80s—SCHIZO was British filmmaker Pete Walker's answer to PSYCHO, an erotic thriller that used pop psychology as a springboard for shocking acts of violence.

Lynne Frederick (VAMPIRE CIRCUS) stars as a beautiful ice skater who, as a child, witnessed the gruesome murder of her mother. After Samantha marries, her close friends begin to be horrifically killed, one by one, and she is brought closer to an inevitable confrontation with the murderer.

Upon its original UK release, more than a minute of violent footage was censored by the British Board of Film Classification. Even so, the critics were shocked by the gruesomeness that remained. The Sunday Telegraph called SCHIZO "very entertaining...if you like street accidents."

This edition represents the complete, uncut version of SCHIZO, and features a newly filmed interview with director Pete Walker.


DVD Extras Include:

• Mastered in HD from the 35mm negative.

• "My Sweet Schizo," an interview with Pete Walker, by Elijah Drenner.
