Brace yourself for more high octane sci-fi terror and apocalyptic alien and zombie mayhem with Dead Shadows on Blu-ray and DVD. Boasting a large cult following in France, Japan and U.K and a festival favorite at the 2012 STIGES International Fantastic Film Festival, Dead Shadows is a wildly entertaining thriller that combines heart-racing suspense, sci-fi action and alien terror with plenty of jaw-dropping surprises. This highly anticipated Scream Factory release marks the North American debut of this movie.
Produced and directed by French Filmmaker David Cholewa, Dead Shadow, starring Fabian Wolfrom, Blandine Marmigère, John Fallon and Rurik Sallé, tells the terrifying story about a young man, Chris, whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on the same day that the Halley’s comet could be seen from earth.
Tonight, a new comet is going to appear and everyone in his building are getting ready for a party to celebrate the event. There’s even an apocalypse theory going around.
As the night falls, Chris starts to discover that people are acting strange – and it seems to somehow be connected to the comet. People are becoming disoriented and violent and it doesn’t take long before they start mutating into something from beyond this world.
In a fight for survival, Chris has to try to escape from his building with the help from some other tenants–but will they make it out alive?

Hungry for more?
Inspired by twisted tales of cannibalistic survival like the real-life Donner Party, cult terror feature Ravenous graphically depicts a twist on an old cliché: You are who you eat. Directed by the late Antonia Bird, this unnerving cult thriller stars Guy Pearce, Robert Carlyle, Jeremy Davies, Jeffrey Jones, John Spencer, Stephen Spinella, Neal McDonough and David Arquette. The film has steadily and deservedly grown a large following over the last 15 years. Beyond its darkly comic take on gruesome subject matter and some fantastic scenery and cinematography, the film features a unique, quirky soundtrack by acclaimed composers Michael Nyman and Damon Albarn. The two contributed compositions separately, collectively serving up a musical stew combining 19th century American folk instruments, electronic sounds and orchestral flourishes; a romantic past filtered through an anxious present.
It's a recipe for nonstop action and excitement when the inhabitants of an isolated military outpost go up against a marauding band of cannibals in a deadly struggle for survival! Ever watchful of the enemies who might literally tear them apart, the uneasy alliance of soldiers must fight brutal elements of the Sierra Nevada wilderness–as well as their own murderous instincts to stay alive.
Capt. Boyd (Guy Pearce), a disgraced veteran of the Mexican-American War, gets quietly shipped out to Fort Spencer, an isolated Sierra Nevada mountain outpost inhabited by a motley crew of soldiers half-mad with boredom. But then a frozen stranger named Colqhoun (Robert Carlyle) arrives spinning a terrifying tale of settlers trapped in a cave and forced to eat one another. Using the pretext of survivors needing help, Colqhoun leads many of the fort's men into a deadly ambush, but Boyd escapes, wounded and delirious. Will he and the remaining soldiers be safe from the madman's hunger?

Welcome to Camp Arawak, where teenagers learn to experience the joys of nature, as well as each other. But when these happy campers begin to die in a series of horrible “accidents”, they discover that someone–or something–has turned their summer of fun into a vacation to dismember. Fans of celebrated cult film writer/producer/director Robert Hiltzik know well the shocking tale of cult slasher thriller Sleepaway Camp (1983). Hailed by fans and critics alike as one of the all-time greatest twisted endings in horror film cinema, this film spawned a sleuth of popular sequels. We invite loyal fans and horror enthusiasts to relive the thrills and suspense of this all-time '80s cult slasher classic when Sleepaway Camp Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, packed with insightful bonus content and all-new interviews.

Has a dark secret returned from the camp’s past. . . or will an unspeakable horror end the summer season for all?

Looking to combat the stress associated with long office hours and final exams? We suggest a double dose of '80s high-camp horror romps when Eric Weston’s Evilspeak, starring Clint Howard, R.G. Armstrong, Joseph Cortese, Claude Earl Jones, Haywood Nelson, Don Stark, Charles Tyner, Lenny Montana, Richard Moll and Jimmy Huston’s Final Exam, starring Cecile Bagdadi, Joel S. Rice, arrive on Blu-ray for the first time.

Evilspeak
Prior to its U.S. theatrical release, the distributor of the film requested that the graphic violence be cut to avoid an “X” rating from the MPAA. The film has been completely restored from a newly discovered 35mm inter-positive source including all of its long rumored scenes of bloody carnage. This new edition includes all-new extras including a new commentary by producer/director Eric Weston.
Life sucks for Stanley Coppersmith (Clint Howard), a teenage outcast who’s bullied by everyone at a strict military academy. When Stanley discovers the crypt of a 16th Century Satanist beneath the chapel, he creates a computerized Black Mass that unleashes unholy revenge upon his tormentors. Now, all hell is about to break loose!Evilspeak is not for the faint of heart.

But the next moment of excitement at the school won’t be a prank. And it’s something a lot more final than an exam. Students are falling prey to a knife-wielding maniac stalking the school, bent on making sure that for some, school is out . . . forever!
