Sometimes the titles Scream Factory puts out have you saying, “I didn’t see that coming.” Like Friday’s Facebook announcement that 1985’s mostly forgotten Hellhole will get a Blu-ray/DVD special edition later this year. Not only have I never seen this one, I totally forgot it even exists.
So what’s Hellhole about again? According to IMDb:
An unlucky woman’s mother is murdered by a scarf-wielding killer named Silk, leaving the woman injured, traumatized, and suffering from amnesia. She’s committed to a mental institution, where Silk follows her, looking for the papers he was trying to get from her mother. And Silk’s only the beginning of her problems since the asylum is run by a mad doctor, performing experiments in chemical lobotomies!
Director Pierre De Moro’s exploitation shocker stars the late Ray Sharkey, 80’s babe Judy Landers, 70’s b-movie mainstay Marjoe Gortner, cult cinema icon Mary Woronov, Maniac Cop Robert Z’Dar, Richard Cox, and Terry Moore.
Scream Factory is looking to release Hellhole sometime this summer. Expect a hard release date and full specs in the weeks and months to come.
I have no problem saying if something this obscure can get a Scream Factory Blu-ray release, then surely The Vindicator will gets its due eventually.
