The film they didn’t want us to see The Killing of America makes its FrightFest premiere this weekend and UK Blu-ray debut in October 2016.
Described as "among the most controversial documentaries in the history of cinema", Sheldon Renan and Academy Award nominee Leonard Schrader’s (Kiss Of The Spider Woman, Mishima, Blue Collar) The Killing of America is a graphic and provocative examination of America’s history, complete with senseless violence, mass shootings and cold-blooded murder.
Never distributed, televised or made available for sale in the United States, this provocative documentary now arrives in the UK, courtesy of Severin Films, in a fully restored edition and makes its FrightFest premiere on 29 August 2016.
A limited theatrical release will follow and, on 24 October, the first ever UK Blu-ray release of the infamous ‘shock doc’ arrives loaded with exclusive special features – including the even more unnerving Japanese version known as Violence U.S.A. – which remains one of the most profoundly disturbing and still chillingly relevant documentary experiences of our time. A DVD version will also be available.

The new UK BD and DVD will be available to pre-order shortly.
