Garagehouse Pictures releases a lost regional horror-comedy, unseen for over 50 years!
After a daring jewelry heist, a trio of thieves hold up in an old dark house inhabited by a motley bunch of restless ghosts that only want to dispatch their new guests in the most horrible manner possible – that is if they can get to them before the spirits of an unruly group of dismembered corpses from the nearby cemetery!
This unusual regional horror-comedy, directed by Ralph S. Hirshorn, was filmed in Philadelphia, PA in 1962, and makes its debut on home video for the first time ever on a fully restored Blu-ray mastered in 4K from the director’s only surviving 16mm print.
THE DISMEMBERED (aka. OSWALD, YOU BOTCHED IT AGAIN) plays like a cross between Roger Corman and Casper the Friendly Ghost, and evokes the era of American International Pictures and the independent drive-in “B” movie.
