From writer/director Murray Markowitz comes the shocking drama inspired by one of Canada’s most infamous homicides: When a former model (Elke Sommer of BARON BLOOD) is brutally murdered, her wealthy husband (Donald Pilon of THE UNCANNY) is arrested for the slaying. But the trial that follows will uncover a lurid saga of illicit lovers, escaped serial killers, a scorching performance by Sommer, and enough graphic mayhem to merit its condemnation as a Video Nasty. Chuck Shamata (THE HOUSE BY THE LAKE), Cindy Girling (MEATBALLS) and five-time Canadian heavyweight champion George Chuvalo co-star in this 1978 Canuxploitation rarity – also known as LEFT FOR DEAD and DROP DEAD, DEAREST – featuring the first score by three-time Oscar® winner Howard Shore (THE LORD OF THE RINGS), now scanned in 2K from the National Archive’s only known 35mm print.
