“Blutiger Freitag”: Subkultur-Entertainment gibt Details und VÖ-Datum bekannt!

Es war ein Unterfangen, was viel Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zog. Das deutsche Genre-Label “Subkultur-Entertainment” machte sich auf, dem deutsch-italienischen Exploitationklassiker “Blutiger Freitag” von Rolff Olsen aus dem Jahr 1972, mit Raimund Harmstorf in der Hauptrolle, eine Blu-Ray Edition zu spendieren. Der fast verlorene Kracher beanspruchte höchste Präzisionsarbeit bei der Restaurierung und beschädigtes Ausgangsmaterial sorgte für rauchende Köpfe. Mit Hilfe einer Kickstarter-Kampange sollte der teure Prozess finanziert werden. Deise Kampangne übertraf letztendlich alle Erwartungen und brachte dem Label knapp 29.000 Euro. Mit Hilfe dieser Summe schafften es die Verantworlichen eine Edition vorzubereiten, die sich gewaschen hat, denn “Blutiger Freitag” kommt in einem 4-Disc Mediabook, welches neben der deutschen Kinofassung auch einen Extended Cut beinhaltet. Dieser wurde aus, als verschollen geltenden, Ausgangsmaterial neu konstruiert, ein Geschenk für alle Unterstützer und Fans. Somit liegt 45 Jahre nach dem Kinorelease erstmals die völlig ungeschnittene Originalfassung vor, und das sogar remastered in 4k. “Blutiger Freitag erscheint, im Ramen der “Edition Deutsche Vita”, am 28.April 2017!
