The star of WRONG TURN, ANYTHING FOR JACKSON et al. is now customizing victims in violent ways.

RLJE Films will bring SPARE PARTS to VOD/digital platforms, Blu-ray and DVD June 1. Directed by Andrew Thomas Hunt from a script by David Murdoch and Svet Rouskov, it also stars Michelle Argyris, Emily Alatalo, Kiriana Stanton and Chelsea Muirhead. The synopsis: “SPARE PARTS is set in a godforsaken bar in the middle of nowhere where an all-girl band–Ms. 45–rips the stage apart with their punk spirit. But their performance impresses an enthusiastic fan who lures the girls into a trap, sedates them, and starts…customizing them. Slowly they begin to gain consciousness and, in total shock, realize their arms have all been replaced with axes and chainsaws to fight gladiator-style in a junkyard arena owned by a sadistic ‘emperor,’ forcing them into the battle of their lives with one prize in mind–their freedom.”

Special features on the discs are:

  • Audio commentary by director and cast
  • Interviews with the cast
  • Fight training videos
  • Behind-the-scenes photo gallery 

Retail prices are $28.96 for the Blu-ray, $27.97 for the DVD.
