WHAT’S DOIN’, BASTARDS?

 

The cool crew over at Scream Factory are continuing their end of week rituals by releasing a slice of horror to get you ready for the weekend. This time out we have the official release info for THE BURNING and THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN Blu-rays. The special features for the titles are still being worked out but the big holy shit news from this announcement is that the Michael Parks classic THE EVICTORS is going to be packaged with THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN, both directed by the great Charles B. Pierce. Dig that good shit! I think that film is better than either of the headliners, but that’s just me. Read below for more.

Gather around the campfire to die!
A group of summer camp pranksters get the scare of their lives when they target the camp’s creepy caretaker…and he takes bloody revenge! “Gruesome” (The Hollywood Reporter) and “stomach-churning” (Boxoffice), this terrifying tale is “a brilliant slasher flick [and] gory as hell” (slasherpool.com)!
 
After a cruel joke goes awry, severely burning him and subjecting him to five years of intensive, unsuccessful skin graft treatments, Cropsy (Lou David) is back at camp…and ready to wreak havoc on those who scarred him! With his hedge clippers in hand, he terrorizes the camp and systematically mutilates each victim. Can a few courageous campers save themselves and destroy this demented madman before he kills them all?
 
Starring Brian Matthews (Crime Stopper), Leah Ayres (Bloodsport), Brian Backer (Fast Times At Ridgemont High), Larry Joshua (Dances With Wolves) and featuring early film appearances by Fisher Stevens (Short Circuit), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (Raising Arizona), The Burning is a “grim and nasty movie [that] gets under your skin” (efilmcritic.com)!

THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack (including the debut of THE EVICTORS on DVD!)
Don’t get caught in this town after sundown!
When two young lovers are savagely beaten and tortured on a back country road in Texarkana, local police are baffled. Three weeks later, two more people are slain in a similar setting and Deputy Norman Ramsey fears a pattern might be developing. Texas Ranger J.D. Morales (Ben Johnson, The Wild Bunch) is brought in to help. The two officers must find “the Phantom Killer” before he can kill again. Also starring Andrew Prine (Grizzly) and Dawn Wells (Gilligan’s Island), directed by Charles B.
