Get ready, salads. A Gun For George, director Matthew Holness’ 2011 short film based on the life of the titanic Terry Finch, is launched today in a special ‘limited edition’ VHS collectors pack. Released by Celluloid Apocalypse, “specialists in analogue sleaze, cult and genre cinema,” Warp Films’ A Gun For George is now available in an extremely limited edition of 50 copies.
If that fact alone doesn’t give you the sweats, this will. The release also includes a facsimile reprint of Finchland Fanzine No.19, first published by yours truly way back in July 1979. This issue, deemed a fanzine ‘classic’ by Finch fans, features an ultra-rare never-before-published Terry Finch short story. Previously withdrawn from sale by its original publisher, ‘TOWER BLOCK’ is a gritty, violent Reprisalizer classic. Only ever available in the original issue, (eighteen copies sold), its inclusion in this historic VHS release constitutes the story’s first ‘official’ publication worldwide and is therefore major news for Finch diehards.
Then there’s the rest. Have a gander below to see what you get. Remember, this release is extremely limited. 50 copies only, so order now to avoid disappointment! You in? Then here’s the link, son:
