Severin Films To Release a Trio of Ozploitation Classics to Blu-rayI’m not sure what it is about Aussie horror, but I love almost all of it. And I certainly love the three movies that Severin Films has announced to Blu-ray later this year. Those looking to junk their DVD editions of Patrick, Thirst, and Dead Kids (aka Strange Behavior) can rejoice!

From the Press Release:
The original killer in a coma classic PATRICK hits Blu-ray from Severin Films on 3/11/14

Aussie horror favorites THIRST & DEAD KIDS will also be issued in Blu/DVD Combos

In the late ‘70s and early ‘80s while films like MY BRILLIANT CAREER and BREAKER MORANT were putting Australia’s ‘New Wave’ on the map, a depraved generation of young Aussie filmmakers was putting a very different kind of movie on screens. Three ‘Ozploitation’ horrors, PATRICK, DEAD KIDS & THIRST, will have their Blu-ray debut from Severin Films, while their sub-label Intervision will issue the definitive compilation OZPLOITATION TRAILER EXPLOSION.

PATRICK: Just as Mark (NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD) Hartley’s highly anticipated remake hits US theaters, Richard (PSYCHO 2) Franklin’s original Ozploitation classic is back… now in stunning HD: A comatose killer is seemingly unresponsive in a small private hospital. But when a hot new nurse begins to question his condition, Patrick will unleash a waking nightmare of psychokinetic carnage. Loaded with Extras including a recently discovered vintage interview with Franklin & the never before available in America Italian track with soundtrack by Goblin (SUSPIRIA, DAWN OF THE DEAD).

DEAD KIDS: Fangoria called it “One of the best horror movies you’ve never seen”: Michael Murphy (MANHATTAN), Dan Shor (WISE BLOOD) and Academy Award® winner Louise Fletcher (ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST) star in this grisly saga of bizarre experiments, butchered teens, New Zealand doubling for suburban Illinois, and a killer in a Tor Johnson mask. This cult favorite – released in America as STRANGE BEHAVIOR – features a hypnotic score by Tangerine Dream, co-written by the Oscar®-winning director of CHICAGO, directed by the producer of TWO LANE BLACKTOP, now loaded with Extras and transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever.

THIRST: One of the most unique vampire movies of our time – is back like you’ve never seen it before: David Hemmings (BLOW-UP, DEEP RED) and Henry Silva (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE) star as executives of an international blood-drinking cartel known as ‘The Brotherhood’. But when they abduct a descendant of Elizabeth Bathory to reboot her depraved legacy, she must escape before the corporation can expand their human ‘blood cow’ dairies and create a vampire master race. Now transferred in HD from the original negative for the first time ever anywhere!

Severin will also be releasing Ozploitation Trailer Explosion, which is a collection of ‘Ozploitation’ trailers, packed with 65 ockers, knockers, pubes, tubes, comatose killers, outback chillers, high-octane disasters and kung fu masters.
