In case you missed it over the busy holidays, Roddy Piper’s final film The Chair was released on Blu-ray in December.
The Chair is a bloody live action adaptation of the graphic novel written by Peter Semeti in which prisoners on death row are not only tortured at the hands of evil guards, but other manifestations which lead inmates to the verge of insanity.
In 2015 fans lost “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, a popular icon in the World Wrestling Federation universe. Piper had also reached cult status in the horror sci-fi world playing Nada who discovers Earth has been under subliminal attack by aliens when he finds a pair of sunglasses in John Carpenter’s They Live (pictured above).
The film version of The Chair was completed in 2015 and received mostly positive reviews. It boasts a cast of well-known genre stars such as Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Bill Oberst Jr. (Criminal Minds), Tim Muskatell (Deadgirl), Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story), Noah Hathaway (The NeverEnding Story) and Ezra Buzzington (The Hills Have Eyes).
