Full Features List Announced for Arrow’s THE ZERO BOYS



Classic ’80s slasher comes to DVD/Blu-ray from Arrow Video.

Greek director Nico (ISLAND OF DEATH) Mastorakis’s long MIA 1986 survivalist slasher THE ZERO BOYS is coming to dual format DVD and Blu-ray on April 25th and they’ve just announced the full feature list for the release.

Full disclosure: your humble editor worked on some of them.

THE ZERO BOYS stars NIGHT OF THE COMET‘s Kelli Maroney and SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE’s Nicole Rio as part of a gang of “weekend warrior” survival gamers who head to a cabin in the woods (back when doing so wasn’t yet a total cliche) and immediately run afoul of a band of nameless, faceless lunatics whose aim is to torment, torture and kill, kill, kill!

Hans Zimmer also provides the score, his first!


Here’s a look at the complete features list:

  • Brand new 4K restoration of the film, approved by writer-director Nico Mastorakis
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations
  • Original Stereo 2.0 audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-ray)
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Brand new audio commentary with star Kelli Maroney, moderated by writer and filmmaker Chris Alexander
  • Nico Mastorakis on… Nico Mastorakis – the Zero Boys director offers up a characteristically unique interview on the making of the film
  • Zero Girl – brand new interview with Maroney
  • Blame It on Rio – brand new interview with star Nicole Rio
  • Music Videos
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • Stills Gallery
  • Original Screenplay (BD/DVD-ROM content)
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
  • Fully-illustrated collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by critic James Oliver

THE ZERO BOYS is a fun and stylish ant-slasher, with a dose of “meta” self-awareness that predates SCREAM by a decade. And Maroney is wonderful in it.
