This is not just a re-edit of I Told You Not to Call the Police – this has alternate performances, and it includes shots from Captive Audience.
Where to Buy
Bill Zebub wanted to make a movie in which you, the viewer, was seeing through the eyes of the villain. Slasher movies usually show the killer’s point of view, but the contrarian in Bill Zebub made him try the opposite. When you watch, YOU are the depraved and sadistic character. The victims look at you in fear and while suffering.
Almost all of the villain’s dialogue was removed so that YOU, the viewer, have much more to imagine. This is a continuation of the experiment of this film. Some people make instant conclusions during conversations, or while observing others. You must recall talking to someone who said, “Well, he’s only doing that because he….” That is the narrator in the brain. We have evolved “causal reasoning” and we like to perceive events as stories.
Unfortunately, not many people have deep comprehension, and even fewer people know how to test their interpretations of what they see and hear, but this movie is not meant for just one type of person. Whether you are shallow or deep, you might be repulsed by the demented actions that you will see.
The original movie was supposed to just have a run of 1,000 units, but it became one of the biggest sellers, and is still in demand. I TOLD YOU NOT TO CALL THE POLICE is still an active title but will be removed from manufacturing because this new version is out, so if you are a collector, or if you want to invest in the resale of the original version, grab what you can while supplies last.
This new version, DON’T CALL THE POLICE, is off to a great start. This, just like the original, is not for everyone. It really was made to test perception and was predicted to fail commercially, but it has lasted years because of constant fervent sales.
The re-edit (with additional scenes for CAPTIVE AUDIENCE) is another experiment, even creepier and more deranged than the first offering.
Please note that the cover art might change on subsequent manufacturing, so it might be limited to 1,000 units, in case you are a collector. The cover art was chosen to reflect the nature of the viewing experience.
