Cult NYC based filmmaker Jeff Lieberman is best known for his trifecta of scrappy shockers, 1976’s SQUIRM, 1978’s BLUE SUNSHINE and 1981’s JUST BEFORE DAWN, with many in-the-know viewers having an affinity for his wild 2004 black comedy horror film SATAN’S LITTLE HELPER. But whatever happened to his prophetic 1987 thriller REMOTE CONTROL, you might ask?

Well, why dwell on the past. It came, it went and it has been largely unseen but now, finally, this awesome slice of Liebermania is coming to remastered blu and DVD, courtesy of the man himself, just in time for its 25th anniversary.

The film stars Kevin Dillon (ENTOURAGE) and Jennifer Tilly (BRIDE OF CHUCKY) in a darkly humorous tale about an alien invasion plot that attacks its victims via “infected” VHS tapes. Before RINGU there was REMOTE CONTROL!

Features will include:

• New 2K HD transfer

•  All-new commentary with writer-director Jeff Lieberman

• Publicity Still Gallery

• 1.85:1 widescreen / English 2.0 / 88 minutes

Rated R

Each brand-new, factory-pressed copy will be autographed and numbered by writer-director Jeff Lieberman.   (Factory shrink wrapping will be removed to facilitate the signing process.)

To get your greasy mitts on your own copy go to the REMOTE CONTROL site here. And be sure to visit Jeff at FANGORIA’s Falls Horror Fest , June 8th and 9th in Niagara Falls, Canada!
