Forget death metal! If there is one kind of music that could lead me to kill it would be disco. I've never liked it and refuse to listen to it. If I could have things my way, I'd collect every bit of disco music ever recorded, pile it up, and set it on fire in a real-deal Disco Inferno. But hey, that's just my opinion. Some of you probably feel the same way about country or rap, and I couldn't say that I'd blame you given the current state of those musical genres. Yeah, I sound like an old fogey, don't I?
Anyways, disco leading to murder is actually the premise of Renaud Gauthier's festival hit DISCOPATHE, and now we've learned that the film is set to hit DVD and iTunes in Canada in the coming weeks.
DISCOPATHE is set to hit iTunes from Juice Distribution on April 29th and a DVD release on June 10 from Black Fawn Distribution. No word yet on a U.S. release date but I imagine it couldn't be far off.
In the debut feature film from director Renaud Gauthier...
...a timid young New Yorker in the mid-70s leads an uneventful life until he is fatefully exposed to the pulsating rhythms of a brand-new genre of music: Disco! Unable to control his murderous impulses that stem from a traumatic childhood experience, Duane Lewis transforms into a dangerous serial killer exiled to Montreal.
The DISCOPATHE DVD will include the following bonus features:
- Commentary by Director Renaud Gauthier
- Behind the Scenes Feature
- Music Player Featuring Songs From the Film
- Upcoming Trailers
