“You probably thought this was destroyed in a fire,” reads Hamilton Trash Cinema’s simple description for their latest upload to YouTube, the long lost version of Doris Wishman’s A Night to Dismember that indeed was thought to have been destroyed in a fire a long time ago. The website Film Trap brings the awesome find to our attention today.
The site explains, “The legend goes that the original negative was destroyed in a fire, so Writer/Director Doris Wishman was forced to go out and shoot an entirely new version of the movie from scratch.”
All these years later, Hamilton Trash Cinema’s Ben Ruffett stumbled upon a tape containing the thought-to-be-destroyed version, and he’s uploaded it for all to enjoy.
In the 1983 splatter film…
“A woman from a “cursed” family is released from a mental facility, and soon dismembered corpses start turning up.”
