Nearly 25 years after its original release, Combat Shock returns from the cult underground to reclaim its title as perhaps the most shocking independent film of the ’80s. Writer/director/producer Buddy Giovinazzo made his indelible debut with this nihilistic saga of a Vietnam vet’s desperate pursuit to save his family from the horrors of poverty and urban squalor. Culminating in one of the most brutal climaxes ever committed to celluloid, this unforgiving masterwork remains as controversial and relevant as it was at the height of Reagan’s America.

Disc 1:
American Nightmares: The never-before-seen Director’s Cut Combat Shock: The original theatrical cut
Audio commentary on Combat Shock with Director Buddy Giovinazzo and Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantik)

Disc 2:
