    Absurd is a 1981 B-grade slasher film directed by Italian exploitation filmmaker Joe D’Amato.

    Movie summary from Letterboxd:

    A man has been driven insane by church-sanctioned scientific experimentation which also causes him to be nearly impossible to kill. He is pursued to America by a priest where he embarks upon a killing spree while the priest tries to hunt him down and kill him.

    The film was released VHS in the UK by Medusa Communications Ltd. and was included on the Director of Public Prosecutors list of “video nasties”. The cover features a prominent example of custom Stop.

    The spine of the cover states: “Sleeve design by IMPRESSIONS 01–722 3939”, but an initial internet search hasn’t turned up much more info about the company or their other design work.
