What we love about Halloween (other than all that candy and caution) is that Shout! Factory spreads the horror throughout the year.
And that's a good thing.
They company has just let two gems---Night of the Demons Collector’s Edition and Witchboard---escape.
This is good.
Horror movie enthusiasts and loyal fans are invited to join the magic circle and journey into the world filled with ancient dark rituals, spine-chilling suspense and blood-curdling terror since Scream Factory (Shout's nifty new in-house label) unleashed Tenney’s creepy supernatural ‘80s cult hits Night of the Demons Collector’s Edition and Witchboard. Each features a healthy dose of gore and violence, and both horror classics debut for the first time on Blu-ray.
It’s Halloween night and Angela is throwing a party, but this is no ordinary Halloween party. Everybody’s headed to Hull House, a deserted funeral home, formerly the home of a mass murderer. But when the party goers decide to have a seance, they awaken something evil . . . and these party crashers have a thirst for blood. Now it’s a battle for who can survive the night in Hull House. Night of the Demons stars William Gallo, Hal Havins, Mimi Kinkade, Cathy Podewell, scream queen Linnea Quigley and Jill Terashita.

It’s called a Ouija Board and it’s been used for thousands of years to communicate with the souls of the afterworld. For beautiful Linda Brewster (Tawny Kitaen), it brings the playful ghost of a dead ten-year-old boy. But when the friendly spirit develops a sudden taste for violent murder and demonic possession, Linda’s boyfriend (Todd Allen) and her former lover (Stephen Nichols) must race to destroy the ferocious portal of the damned.
The highly popular ‘80s paranormal thriller Witchboard boasts an all-star cast, with Todd Allen, Tawny Kitaen, Stephen Nichols, Kathleen Wilhoite, Burke Byrnes with special appearance by Dick Van Dyke Show icon Rose Marie. (Does she wear her trademark black hair bow? We ain't telling.)
