Details:

Byron Orlok (Boris Karloff) is a retiring horror-star bidding farewell to the limelight. Bobby Thompson (Tim O’Kelly) is an unassuming but disturbed Vietnam veteran who suddenly embarks on a murderous shooting rampage.
As Byron makes one final public appearance, the two’s worlds collide as Bobby brings carnage to a suburban Los Angeles drive-in cinema.
Both a comment on the terrors of contemporary America and homage to the horror films of Roger Corman, this thrilling crime drama launched the career of its director Peter Bogdanovich.
Hailed as one of the most powerful films of the late 1960s, Targets is presented here as a brand-new High Definition remaster and on Blu-ray for the very first time.
"One of the greatest directorial debuts of all time" Quentin Tarantino

Extras to be confirmed.

BFI Facebook Group page

We are sorry to announce that our planned release of Peter Bogdanovich's Targets is being suspended, due to on-going issues regarding the materials required for the release.
We sincerely apologise for the disappointment this news will bring but feel this decision is necessary in to order to maintain the quality and integrity customers should expect from the BFI label.
We do still hope to release the title on Blu-ray at some point in the future but are currently unable to confirm when this will be. Further announcements will be made once the situation becomes clearer.
All customers who have pre-ordered via the BFI Shop will be contacted and receive a full refund.
Thank you for you continued support of the label.
