Scalpel Blu-Ray

Scalpel Blu-Ray
Robert Lansing (Star Trek, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone) stars as a deranged surgeon in this twisty-turny psychological thriller from Blood Rage director John Grissmer. Scalpel stars Lansing as Dr. Phillip Reynolds, a man whose daughter Heather (Judith Chapman, As the World Turns, The Young and the Restless) has run away from following the suspicious death of her boyfriend - an incident in which Reynolds himself is implicated - leaving behind a sixeable inheritance. When Reynolds happens across a young woman whose face has been brutally disfigured, the unhinged Reynolds physician sees an opportunity to put his trusty scalpel to use, hatching a demented plan to lay his hands on his daughters money. Photographed by celebrated cinematographer Edward Lachman, who would go on to serve as director of photography on the likes of Erin Brockovich and The Virgin Suicides, Scalpel is an exemplary slice of Southern Gothic, finally rescued from VHS obscurity in this new Blu-ray edition from Arrow Video.
