Press Quotes

A grim, unrelenting study of a psychopathic killer. Shatner is surprisingly strong in an enormously demanding role.

     —Box Office Magazine

IMPULSE is a really sleazy, skeevie, slimy little movie.

     —Frank Henenlotter, director of BASKET CASE and FRANKENHOOKER

Well-crafted and effective... flowing with Grefe's scalpel-sharp direction.

     —Alex Ben Block, The Miami News

IMPULSE has all of the punchy, violent power of the best films by Samuel Fuller and Robert Aldrich.'

     —Jim Healy, Wisconsin Film Festival

Not only is 'Impulse' a blast, but the package put together by Grindhouse Releasing is just incredible

     —Anthony Arrigo, Dread Central

This may be the home video release of the year. It is packed [PACKED!] with supplements. Not only that, they have done a 4K restoration of a film that basically had been lost in terms of the original elements

     —Dr. AC, Horror 101

for film enthusiasts this set is a must-buy as it includes a wealth of special features that justify purchase outright!

     —MATTHEW OROZCO, Macabre Daily
