.Found this photo from Don Dohler's Blood Massacre while looking through an issue of Gary Svehla's Midnight Marquee (#43/Winter '92) published right here in Baltimore. The magazine's accompanying review fills in some gaps in my thoughts back in March. Apparently, the feature was indeed completed in 1987 as Dohler ran into enormous financial problems that halted the release until 1991. Also the film's negative somehow became heavily damaged, so a workprint was used for the VHS transfer, which explains the shower of debris all over the presentation. Check out the video trailer here.
