Shout Factory continues to deliver the classic horror films through their Scream Factory brand and show no sign of slowing down. What’s great about their releases is that they are from all different films in the horror genre, but most importantly some of the most memorable and entertaining. Their latest release brings two John Carpenter films, 1993s Body Bags and the 1976 classic Assault on Precinct 13.
John Carpenter’s Body Bags comes to Blu-ray for the first time and features a trilogy of blood curdling tales including “The Gas Station” starring Robert Carradine and Alex Datcher, “Hair” starring Stacy Keach and “Eye” directed by Tobe Hooper and starring Mark Hamill. This horror collection also features special appearances by Deborah Harry (Scarface), Sheena Easton (Miami Vice), Twiggy, David Naughton (An American Werewolf in London), John Agar (Tarantula), David Warner (The Omen) and cameos by notable horror film legends Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Tobe Hooper (Lifeforce, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead), Roger Corman (House of Usher) and Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) and packed with exciting bonus content, a collectible cover featuring newly rendered retro-style artwork and more.
Assault on Precinct 13 follows a group of police officers and convicts that are isolated and cut off from the city inside a soon-to-be-closed L.A. police station who must join forces to defend themselves against the gang called Street Thunder, who have taken a blood oath to kill someone trapped inside the precinct. The film stars Darwin Joston, Austin Stoker, and isn’t so much a horror film but more of a thriller that combines a feel of the classic western with the thriller genre to create a great cult hit.
John Carpenter has a proven track record of great cult classic films and fans are sure to be eager to get these latest releases into their collections. As if these Blu-ray releases weren’t enough to be excited for those who pre-order them from ScreamfactoryDVD.com will also receive the respective exclusive 18”x24” poster featuring the newly commissioned artwork, while supplies last.
