Horror Title ‘God Told Me To’ Headed to 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack July 19 From MVD

The horror film God Told Me To (1976) will be released on 4K Ultra HD plus Blu-ray combo pack July 19 from Blue Underground and MVD Entertainment Group.

A rooftop sniper guns down 14 pedestrians on the streets of New York City. A mild-mannered dad takes a shotgun and blows away his wife and children. A cop goes on a sudden shooting spree at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Each of these unlikely killers makes the same dying confession: “God told me to.” In this cult classic, repressed Catholic NYPD detective (Tony Lo Bianco, The French Connection) must uncover a netherworld of deranged faith, alien insemination and his own unholy connection to a homicidal messiah with a perverse plan for the soul of mankind.
 
Written, produced, and directed by Larry Cohen (It’s Alive), the film also stars Deborah Raffin (Death Wish 3), Sandy Dennis (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Sylvia Sidney (Beetlejuice), Mike Kellin (Sleepaway Camp), Richard Lynch (Bad Dreams) and Andy Kaufman (“Taxi”).
