THE DAWN OF A NEW BREED OF HEROES
From cult director Nico Mastorakis, the man behind such eclectic offerings as the controversial Island of Death and the Oliver Reed-starring actioner Hired to Kill, comes The Zero Boys – the genre-bending ’80s classic with gruesome sequences that anticipate the torture porn horrors of Hostel and Saw.
For a group of young friends, a weekend of survival games in the wilderness turns into a genuine battle of life and death when one of their number turns up dead. Finding themselves hunted by a bloodthirsty band of maniacs intent on slaughtering them one-by-one, the self-styled “Zero Boys” must now play their war games for real.
Starring Kelli Maroney (Night of the Comet, Chopping Mall) and featuring an early score from the legendary Hans Zimmer (Inception, The Dark Knight), The Zero Boys mixes action, survival and all-out slasher movie elements in a thrilling horror yarn that falls somewhere between Friday the 13th and Deliverance.
Reviews"The Zero Boys offers a lot of things to like, including an interesting concept, artistic camerawork, and great music... Arrow has done a bang-up job of delivering a top-notch presentation and pairing it with some entertaining and informative extras."

"The Arrow Blu-ray provides an excellent a/v presentation with appreciated supplements. I suggest this is one that would definitely suit fans of the genre." - DVD Beaver
