RLJE Films has announced a June 1 home release date for Spare Parts, a horror film about an all-girl punk band and their encounter with a super fan who turns them into mutant brawlers. The film will be released on VOD, digital, DVD and Blu-ray Disc, all on the same day. The DVD will be priced at $27.97 and the Blu-ray Disc will be $28.96.
Directed by Andrew Thomas Hunt (Sweet Karma) and written by David Murdoch (“The KNTV Show”) and Svet Rouskov (“Darken: Before the Dark”), the film stars Julian Richings (Chaos Walking), Michelle Argyris (“General Hospital”), Emily Alatalo (Mother!), Kiriana Stanton (“The Expense”) and Chelsea Muirhead (“Slo Pitch”).
Spare Parts is set in a godforsaken bar in the middle of nowhere where an all-girl band, Ms. 45, rips the stage apart with their punk spirit. But their performance impresses an enthusiastic fan who lures the girls into a trap, sedates them, and starts “customizing” them. Slowly they begin to gain consciousness and, in total shock, realize their arms have all been replaced with axes and chainsaws to fight gladiator-style in a junkyard arena owned by a sadistic “emperor,” forcing them into the battle of their lives with one prize in mind – their freedom.
RLJE Films is a business unit of AMC Networks.
