88 Films brengt drie nieuwe ‘Slasher Classics’ uit

De Slasher Classics Collection is een erg interessante serie van 88 Films waarin wat onbekende ‘slasher films’ een blu-ray behandeling krijgen. Sommige titels zijn wellicht wat misplaatst en niet allemaal interessant, maar grotendeels is deze collectie meer dan de moeite waard. 88 Films heeft nu drie nieuwe titels aangekondigd om toe te voegen aan hun collectie, nummertjes 31, 32 en 33 alweer. Om precies te zijn: The House on Sorority Row, Slaughterhouse Rock en Sweet Sixteen. Lees het gehele bericht van 88 Films hieronder.

Are you ready?

88 Films is ready to slay you with three new Slasher Classics. The only UK label to have a line dedicated to the deranged delirium of the golden age of slice and dice, 88 Films is ready to unleash a certified teen-tormenting gem in the timeless terror title HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW (1983). Remade as a Carrie Fisher-starring blockbuster in 2009, this original effort – about a dorm prank gone wrong and the terrible consequences – doubtlessly inspired such later revenge-flicks as I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. A trendsetting genre template, HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW is the latest in our Slasher Classics line.

Next up is SLAUGHTERHOUSE ROCK (1988) – an atmospheric and thoroughly eighties outing that mixes the malevolence of a claustrophobic Alcatraz setting with the newfound supernatural thrills of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. As with such other late-period trap ‘em and stalk ‘em shockers, such as BAD DREAMS, the stylish SLAUGHTERHOUSE ROCK is part-ghoulish ghost story and part-creepy slasher carnage and 88 Films is proud to present this plasma-stained pot boiler in full HD.

Finally comes SWEET SIXTEEN – one of the defining early eighties offerings that features a coming-of-age tale that is packed full of sharp-edged surprises and shocking small town spine-tinging terror. Featuring a standout role from the iconic Dana Kimmell (FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3), and a soundtrack that positively oozes with the decade’s chart schmooze, SWEET SIXTEEN is a stab-a-thon marathon that is finally given a British HD debut!

Extras, booklets (by slasher academic Calum Waddell) and more to be announced!!
