You best protect ya neck, THE FLYING GUILLOTINE is coming for you! A 35mm presentation.
Desperate to cling to power, the Emperor enlists a deadly assassination squad to keep the populace in line and equips them with the deadliest weapon ever conceived of by man: The Flying Guillotine. It’s basically just a hat fitted with a rope, but you don’t want to try this guy on for size, it’ll slice your head clean off from a 100-yards away. When one of the Imperial Guard grows weary of collecting heads for the paranoid regent, he retreats to the country for a quiet life of a farming, but it’s not too long before his past catches up to him and he finds himself a mark of the Emperor’s assassins!
