Contest: Win DEATH LINE and DEATHDREAM on Blu-ray



Attention, ALL readers of Dread Central! Yes, that’s right… every one of you across the globe! We’re helping our pals over at Blue Underground with a contest where they will be giving a Blu-ray copy of Death Line and Deathdream to one of you! To enter, all you have to do is use the form below; and you’re all set!

Also, to learn more about the titles, simply click on the names, and you’ll be taken to Blue Underground’s website, where you can see specifics about each film!

To reiterate, this contest is open to people across the globe. Anyone, anywhere, can enter. However, the contest ends next Tuesday, May 1st, at 12 midnight ET, so make sure you enter before then!

Death Line:
When a prominent politician and a beautiful young woman vanish inside a London subway station, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Calhoun (Donald Pleasence of Halloween) investigates and makes a horrifying discovery. Not only did a group of 19th century tunnel workers survive a cave-in, but they lived for years in a secret underground enclave by consuming the flesh of their own dead. Now the lone descendant of this grisly tribe has surfaced, prowling the streets for fresh victims… and a new mate.

In this shattering variation on The Monkey’s Paw, grief-stricken suburban parents (Academy Award nominees John Marley of The Godfather and Lynn Carlin of Faces) refuse to accept the news that their son, Andy (Richard Backus), has been killed in Vietnam. But when Andy returns home soon after, something may be horribly wrong: Andy is alive and well… or is he? Produced and directed by Bob Clark (Black Christmas) and written by Alan Ormsby (Deranged), Deathdream was one of the very first films to confront the domestic ravages of the Vietnam War. More than forty years later, it remains one of the most chilling horror films of all time.

The producers are Danielle Artigo and Dylan Matlock with executive producers Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc, Jon Huertas, Hallie Jordan, Steve Romano (who also served as Director of Photography), and Lony Ruhmann.

Altered Perception was written by Travis Romero, creator of the USA series White Collar, with Jon Huertas and Jennifer Blanc (story by Romero). SKD acquired all U.S. distribution rights to the psychological thriller, which was directed by Kate Rees Davies in her feature-length debut, and Cinedigm will release the picture theatrically and on Digital and TV VOD on May 4th with a DVD release to follow in June 2018.

When the government attempts to produce a designer drug aimed at correcting the false perceptions that people develop during trauma and stress, the implications are deadly. Advertised as a cure for socio-political tensions, four couples volunteer but end up with far more than they bargained for as their past and present are examined while taking variations of the new drug. However, this causes them to doubt their own memory, perceptions – and even their own sanity in this thriller in the vein of Disturbing Behavior and The Faculty.
