God Told Me To reaches 4K UHD in July

Larry Cohen made quite a few memorable films as a writer, director and producer. Black Caesar, Hell Up In Harlem, It’s Alive, Q and The Stuff. One of his wildest films is God Told Me To about a society breaking down. Lt. Peter J. Nicholas (Tony Lo Bianco) is investigating a rash of violence where the suspects excuse is that “Gold told me to.” What is going on? Are people being told by the Almighty to become murderers. The movie has remained a cult hit since it came out in 1976 including being a part of the prestigious Cinema Overdrive series in Raleigh, North Carolina. Now it’s getting upgraded to 4K UHD with plenty of extras. Here’s the press release from Blue Underground:

A rooftop sniper guns down 14 pedestrians on the streets of New York City. A mild-mannered dad takes a shotgun and blows away his wife and children. A cop goes on a sudden shooting spree at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. And each of these unlikely killers makes the same dying confession: “God told me to.” Now a repressed Catholic NYPD detective (Tony Lo Bianco of THE HONEYMOON KILLERS and THE FRENCH CONNECTION) must uncover a netherworld of deranged faith, alien insemination and his own unholy connection to a homicidal messiah with a perverse plan for the soul of mankind. Written, produced, and directed by Larry Cohen (IT’S ALIVE), this critically acclaimed cult classic remains one of the most disturbing and thought-provoking horror films of our time. Deborah Raffin (DEATH WISH 3)Sandy Dennis (WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?), Sylvia Sidney (BEETLEJUICE), Mike Kellin (SLEEPAWAY CAMP), Richard Lynch (BAD DREAMS), and Andy Kaufman (TAXI) co-star in GOD TOLD ME TO, now presented in a new 4K restoration from the original uncensored negative, with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, packed with revealing Extras!
