Saturn's Core Audio & Video is a New Jersey based home video label devoted to releasing underground oddities and shot on video cinema on VHS, and now, blu-ray discs! In partnership with OCN Distribution, Saturn's Core will exhume forgotten or under-seen genre cinema from the 80s and 90s, with an emphasis on SOV horror features. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

High school student Ray Sterling (Mick McCleery) has it in for his fellow classmate Bobby Greene. Seems Bobby’s father was responsible for putting Ray’s father behind bars where he ultimately took his own life. With the help of his three best friends, all donning ominous clown masks, Ray orchestrates a cruel and elaborate prank; kidnapping Bobby and imprisoning him inside an underwater cavern within the local quarry. This seemingly harmless prank turns deadly when Bobby accidentally drowns during the proceedings and the unrepentant Ray quickly covers up the fatal misdeed. When detectives start asking questions, Ray will do anything to keep his friends sworn to secrecy at any cost….even if it means resorting to cold blooded murder.

Like an analog after school special from hell, The Killing of Bobby Greene cleverly skirted the lines between the gritty, indie film crime capers of the ‘90s and the YA thrills of Lois Duncan’s I Know What You Did Last Summer. A masterful early SOV feature from prolific New Jersey based actor, writer, & director Mick McCleery (Twisted Tales, Track 16, The Altruist, Addicted to Murder), Saturn’s Core is proud to present The Killing of Bobby Greene in its definitive, director supervised Blu-Ray edition, newly paired with McCleery’s never before released 1989 SOV crime comedy Crooks and over 9 hours of special features chronicling the entire first ten years of Mick’s One by One Films & Video imprint through documentaries, commentaries, and rare short films!
