A Manic depressive artist survives a suicidal fall only to be possessed by a murdered gangster,
who uses the artist to seek vengeance on those that ended his life. (IMDb)

Just watched Retribution, last time i saw this supernatural horror movie was some 20 years ago.
It´s still very good, atmospheric and strong flick.

Directed by Guy Magar and starring Dennis Lipscomb, Leslie Wing and Suzanne Snyder.

Lipscomb is great, so symphatetic and so evil at the same time.
Snyder is solid and very pretty as street girl Angel.
I simply love her outfits.

Alan Howarth composed the cool score, he´s one of the best in the business.

The death scenes are quite brutal and very well done.
Genre veteran Kevin Yagher did the special effects.

Lipscomb and Snyder visit the Museum of Neon Art which was great,
gotta love all that neon!

Watch this movie you horror maniacs, i´m sure you will like it!

Cool trailer indeed ! [Big Grin]

I've never actually seen Retribution, and i doubt this was ever released on rental-video
here in Holland at all.
(I'm gonna check that out, but it'll take some time to find out)

Apparently a dvd was planned for a september 2011 release, but never actually materialized.
I hope someday it will get a decent dvd release.
It would be a great addition for my obscure horror collection, i'm sure ! [Smile]

Great film 4 out of 5
I had never heard of it before.

watched it on utub last night. Great comedic lines mixed in the funny kill scenes. The actors really went for it, and played their roles wonderfully.

LOL

of the guy trapped in a sexual looking position with a pig in the slaughter house.

The good news : Code Red's 25th anniversary special edition dvd has been released !

The bad news : as of recently, Code Red only sells their product through their own site. [Frown]

Well, anyway.. here's a review of the disc : www.dvddrive-in.com/reviews/n-s/retribution87.htm
