Three truly obscure titles are getting set to hit Blu-ray for the first and very limited time. That’s right, kids! Jeff Lieberman’s hillbilly slasher Just Before Dawn is on its way along with Fulci’s Voices From Beyond and Umberto Lenzi’s Nightmare City!
There’s a catch though… Just Before Dawn and Voices From Beyond will only be sold through the Code Red website and will both be granted an EXTREMELY limited run. Order Just Before Dawn here and Voices From Beyond here. No firm release date has been given for either film. Hurry up! These two will likely sell out fast.
Now on to the good news… for the first time we are getting the original uncut version of Just Before Dawn from the original InterNegative. Also included will be an extended cut (for overseas distribution) and the original theatrical trailer.
Five friends set out for a weekend camping excursion to drink, frolic, and skinny-dip on an isolated piece of land one of them has inherited. Despite ominous warnings from a local forest ranger (George Kennedy), strange backwoods families, and a hollering drunken hunter (Mike Kellin) claiming to have witnessed his friend’s evisceration by the hands of “Demons”, they trek further into the foliage. Beautifully shot, extremely eerie, and with a horrifying twist that will make you wonder…Will any of them survive those dark hours Just Before Dawn? Starring Gregg Henry, Deborah Benson, Jamie Rose, Chris Lemmon, and Ralph Seymour.
Also, hitting Blu for a limited time is Lucio Fulci’s little seen Voices From Beyond
If you think the dead rest in peace, prepare yourself for Voices from Beyond, a chilling ghost story with a modern twist. The unexpected death of wealthy, middle-aged Giorgio from an internal hemorrhage has cast suspicion on his scheming family, all of whom had reasons to commit murder. Rosy, the innocent daughter, is tormented by her father’s spirit, who demands the revelation of his killer. Could it be Giorgio’s wife, his mistress, his stepson, or his stepmother? Or perhaps an even more fiendish mind is at work within the dark, deadly confines of their sprawling estate? Soon Rosy’s life is in danger as well as she races against time to unmask the face of true evil and silence the unearthly voice of a ghost out for justice. From the diabolical mind of Italian horror legend Lucio Fulci, the man behind The Beyond and Aenigma, comes one of his final voyages into the supernatural, laced with his trademark scenes of terror and mayhem. Turn down the lights, curl up tight, and listen closely – the voices from beyond might be out there waiting for you, too!
Finally from RaroVideo comes Umberto Lenzi’s Nightmare City. Look for this one in stores on December 31st.
TV news reporter Dean Miller waits at the airport for the arrival of a scientist that he is about to interview. There, an unmarked military plane makes an emergency landing. The plane doors open and dozens of zombies burst out, stabbing and shooting the military waiting outside. Miller tries to let the people know of this event, but General Murchison of Civil Defense will not allow it. Then, Miller tries to find his wife and escape from the blood-thirsty zombies that are all over the city…
