Fans of gruesome Italian horror will be pleased to learn that Fernando Di Leo's "La bestia uccide a sangue freddo" - aka SLAUGHTER HOTEL - is receiving a proper Blu-ray release from Raro Video USA in 2014. There is no specific date as of yet.
Raro Video USA has been churning out some pretty gnarly and obscure films recently, and they've got more on the way: NIGHTMARE CITY, THE YEAR OF THE CANNIBALS and MEET HIM AND DIE are all coming out in the next few months.
IN SLAUGHTER HOTEL, an axe-wielding maniac stalks the beautiful, scantily-clad women of an upscale sanitarium, all under the watchful eye of the mysterious Dr. Keller (Klaus Kinski). Equal and excessive doses of slash and skin make for a very European-style of grindhouse entertainment.
The film stars the incomparable Klaus Kinski (Herzog's Nosferatu), and two of Europe's most sizzling cinematic sex queens - Margaret Lee and Rosalba Neri (pictured below).
