Illusions may be more real than what meets the eye when the bizarre and grisly tale of the Wizard of Gore debuts on unrated DVD August 19 under Genius Products and The Weinstein Companys Dimension Extreme label. The re-imagining of Herschell Gordon Lewis 1970 horror classic, Wizard of Gore was directed by Jeremy Kasten (The Thirst) and stars horror fan favorites Crispin Glover (Beowulf, Epic Movie) as the master illusionist Montag The Magnificent with performances from Bijou Phillips (Hostel: II, Choke), Kip Pardue (Remember The Titans, Devils Pond) and the Suicide Girls. In the Wizard of Gore it becomes impossible to determine where the true illusions lie when an uncanny magician and his hermit assistant arrive in town with their unique and nightmarish act. As Montag The Magnificent slices, dismembers and seemingly kills women on stage during his show, audiences are horrified until the lights go up and the victims are seen unhurt and alive! Illusion quickly becomes reality when the girls are found dead the following day – brutalized exactly as it appeared on stage. Featuring deleted scenes, bloopers and multiple featurettes, the Wizard of Gore will be available for the suggest retail price of $19.97.
