    Is there a dvd coming too or just VHS? I own that Serial Psycho's 6 movie set (Great Set BTW) that it was released on, wonder if a new dvd will be worth re-buying.

    From FB:

    A mystery killer, garbed in a black trench coat and fedora hat, is stalking the streets of Toronto, murdering seemingly random people in a variety gruesome ways. As the body count grows, a renegade detective makes a shocking discovery: all of the victims had AIDS. As he delves deeper into the investigation, more secrets are revealed, leading to a shocking twist no one thought possible!


    Shot as The AIDS Murders, Massacre Video presents lurid hybrid of Mario Bava-esque giallo and 80s slasher sleaze on DVD and VHS, digitally transferred from its original edited master.


    Coming in October!

    Gave this a watch on Friday night and enjoyed it. It's pretty nutty. A neat time capsule of eighties Toronto in some ways. Some nice locations used. The murders are pretty gory and the movie is amazing in how tone deaf it is to the HIV/AIDS epidemic - but at the same time, somehow manages to treat its gay characters with a reasonable amount of respect (relatively speaking). It's a pretty odd film, possibly one of the first to use AIDS as a plot device? The Massacre DVD looks about as good as it can, taken from a tape master (it was shot on film but edited on tape) it looks reasonably good.

    I'm not positive, but I think this has gone OOP. It's no longer listed on Massacre's site (except on VHS) and Diabolik says it's out of stock (with no indication if more are coming). I ordered it from amazon.ca just in case (they have 2 copies left).

    I can check with Louis, but it's readily available on Amazon US.
