Arrow haalt The Slayer uit de vergetelheid

The Slayer is zonder twijfel een van mijn favoriete ‘onbekende’ horrors. Ik heb het lange tijd moeten doen met de goedkope dvd release van het Beyond Terror label. Daar komt in augustus eindelijk verandering in met de release van deze ijzersterke en sfeervolle horrorfilm op blu-ray. Het volledige bericht van Arrow lees je hieronder.

IS IT A NIGHTMARE? OR IS IT… THE SLAYER?

One of the most sought-after titles for slasher fans everywhere, The Slayer finally rises from the ashes of obscurity in a brand new 4K transfer courtesy of Arrow Video.

Two young couples set off to a secluded island for what promises to be a restful retreat. But the peace is short-lived: as a storm batters the island, troubled artist Kay begins to sense that a malevolent presence is here with them, stalking them at every turn. Is she losing her mind, or are her childhood nightmares of a demonic assailant coming to terrifying life?

Previously only available on home video in truncated or full screen versions, The Slayer – whose nightmares-seeping-into-reality theme predates a certain Wes Craven classic by several years – comes lovingly restored from the original negative in a stunning transfer that will be a revelation to fans both old and new.
