From The Press Release

Vinegar Syndrome will issue a standard edition of Tom Alderman’s The Severed Arm (1973), starring Deborah Walley, Paul Carr, David G. Cannon, Marvin Kaplan, and John Crawford. The release will be available for purchase on November 24.

Synopsis: While camping, a group of friends become trapped in a cave. Desperate and starving, they draw straws to decide which one should suffer the severing of his arm so that the others can eat. But no sooner than making this fateful amputation, they’re rescued, though their unfortunate victim has been driven hopelessly mad by the experience. Years later, the survivors have all moved on with their lives, that is until someone with a very sharp axe to grind begins stalking them and chopping off their arms, one by one…

A drive-in and home video staple, thanks in large part to a notorious title and insane concept, Tom Alderman’s THE SEVERED ARM is a stylish and atmospheric murder mystery/proto-slasher. Co-starring Deborah Walley (Beach Blanket Bingo), Marvin Kaplan (Wild at Heart) and Vince Martorano (The Candy Snatchers) and featuring expectedly excellent cinematography by Robert Maxwell (Blood Mania, The Centerfold Girls), Vinegar Syndrome brings THE SEVERED ARM to disc, fully uncut and in its very first authorized edition, from a brand new 4K scan of its original 35mm camera negative.

Special Features and Technical Specs:

  • “Severing the Past” – an interview with actor Vince Martorano
  • “A Cut Above the Rest” – an interview with producer Gary Adelman
  • Reversible cover artwork
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature
