DVD DETAILS AND TRAILER FOR ‘SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE’

At first glance, Ken Boyd may seem like an average comic enthusiast, living with his mother and working to make ends meet as an underpaid, underappreciated ice cream parlor attendant. But Ken has a dirty little secret: he fantasizes about killing people. After being released from a stay in the loony bin, for severe mental trauma suffered when he was beaten and tortured by a gang of high school thugs, Ken’s repressed anger suddenly reaches a boiling point. With gleeful enthusiasm Ken hunts down his tormentors, one by one, and exacts his bloody revenge.

Produced by John Landis (AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, ANIMAL HOUSE, BLUES BROTHERS) and starring Kevin Corrigan, Barry Bostwick, Karen Black, Leo Fitzpatrick, Ariel Gade and Lucy Davis, SOME GUY WHO KILLS PEOPLE was directed by Jack Perez and written by Ryan Levin.

Anchor Bay Entertainment will be releasing the horror comedy DVD on July 3rd, 2012.
