Mikos (George Eastman, an unstoppable killing machine, is on the loose in a sleepy American town. The town’s only hope is a mysterious priest (Edmund Purdom) who has been hunting this madman around the globe. As the bodies pile up, desperate Police Sergeant, Engleman (Charles Borromel), teams up with the priest in hopes of stopping Mikos from slaughtering more and more of his town folk.

A would-be sequel to Joe D’Amato’s infamous Anthropophagus: The Beast, this notorious splatter classic finally returns to UK shelves after three decades of obscurity thanks to 88 Films. Co-starring Anne Belle and Michele Soavi, and featuring over-the-top death scenes that linger long after viewing, Absurd is essential viewing for any self-respecting horror fan and is presented here, uncut, for the first time since it was banned in 1984!

Never seen this one, worth getting?

Never seen it either. I think I have a DVD-R of it somewhere, just never got around to watching.

I used to own a VHS copy. I would love to one day own a proper DVD, or blu-ray of this movie.

Yeah I'm so glad that this is also available for the European marked. Lately all of the releases seems to have been only region A. I really hate the region bullshit.

YEs region lock is a stupid concept, especially for collector's.

Region coding is a stupid concept for consumer.
