The Killing of America

Described as "among the most controversial documentaries in the history of cinema", Sheldon Renan and Academy Award nominee Leonard Schrader's (Kiss Of The Spider Woman, Mishima, Blue Collar) The Killing of America is a graphic and provocative examination of America's history, complete with senseless violence, mass shootings and cold-blooded murder

Never distributed, televised or made available for sale in the United States, this provocative documentary now arrives in the UK, courtesy of Severin Films, in a fully restored edition. It premiered at FrightFest 2016 and on 31 October 2016 the first ever UK Blu-ray release of the infamous 'shock doc' arrives loaded with exclusive special features - including the even more unnerving Japanese version known as Violence U.S.A. - which remains one of the most profoundly disturbing and still chillingly relevant documentary experiences of our time. A DVD version will also be available and the film will get a limited theatrical release with details confirmed.
