CRIMEWAVE Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack

Synopsis

In a nod to film noir, the head of a security systems company is bumped off by two gonzo exterminators who have gone from stomping out pesky varmints to stomping out human targets. The exterminators go after the partner who hired them and his blatantly obnoxious wife (Louise Lasser) and, in the meantime, frame a poor security guard (Reed Birney) for the murder of the company boss.

Special Features are currently in development. Shout! Factory will announce final bonus content and additional news in forthcoming months.
