A double dose of 1981 horror flicks will usher us into the summer, courtesy of our friends over at Scream Factory. Read on for full details about both releases, which put Evilspeak and Final Exam on Blu-ray for the very first time!
From the Press Release
This May, SCREAM FACTORY™ invites loyal fans and horror movie enthusiasts to combat the stress associated with long office hours and final exams with a double dose of 80s high-camp horror romps.
Eric Weston’s EVILSPEAK, starring Clint Howard (Rock ‘n’ Roll High School), R.G. Armstrong (Children of the Corn), Joseph Cortese (Death Collector), Claude Earl Jones (Dark Night of the Scarecrow), Haywood Nelson (“What’s Happening!”), Don Stark (“That ‘70s Show”), Charles Tyner (Father Murphy), Lenny Montana (The Godfather), Richard Moll (“Night Court”), and Jimmy Huston’s FINAL EXAM, starring Cecile Bagdadi, Joel S. Rice (Bounty Hunters), arrive on Blu-ray™ for the first time on May 13, 2014. Each movie collection boasts anamorphic widescreen movie presentation and insightful bonus content. EVILSPEAK and FINAL EXAM Blu-ray™ editions from SCREAM FACTORY™ are available for pre-order now.
Prior to the U.S. theatrical release of Evilspeak, 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 (Hyenas).
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!
