    All of the film you are about to see is real, it begins. Nothing has been staged. In 1981, filmmakers Sheldon Renan and Academy Award® nominee Leonard Schrader (KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN, MISHIMA, BLUE COLLAR) created a graphic and provocative examination of America s history with and penchant for senseless violence, mass shootings and cold-blooded murder. It was condemned as exploitative and obscene (The New York Times), acclaimed as among the most controversial documentaries in the history of cinema (Fantasia Festival), and now available for the first time ever on Blu-ray.

    Severin Films now presents this infamous shock doc fully restored, uncut and loaded with exclusive Bonus 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.

    Special Features:
    Audio commentary with Director Sheldon Renan
    The Madness Is Real: Interview with with Director Sheldon Renan
    Cutting The Killing: Interview with with Editor Lee Percy
    Interview with Mondo Movie historian Nick Pinkerton
