It’s always an exciting thing when horror flicks hit Blu-ray for the very first time, and Severin Films has three such debuts in store for us on July 8, inviting us to a Bloody Birthday, allowing us to hold The Baby, and encouraging us to howl at the Bloody Moon.
Read on for complete release details for all three!
Bloody Birthday Synopsis
Get ready for the rarely seen slasher classic from the 80s that may also be the most disturbing “killer kids” movies in grindhouse history: Three babies are simultaneously born in the same hospital at the peak of a full solar eclipse. Ten years later, these adorable youngsters suddenly begin a kiddie killing spree of stranglings, shootings, stabbings, beatings, and beyond. Can the town’s grown-ups stop these pint-sized serial killers before their blood-soaked birthday bash? K.C. Martel (E.T., “Growing Pains”), Joe Penny (“Jake and The Fat Man”), Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja), screen legends Susan Strasberg and José Ferrer, and MTV vixen Julie Brown,whose nude bedroom dance remains a landmark of celebrity skin, star in this still-controversial shocker from director Ed Hunt (The Brain, Diary of a Sinner), featuring an HD transfer from the original vault elements.
The Baby Synopsis
An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, 70s fashions, and “sick love”. The result remains one of the most disturbing movies in Hollywood history: Anjanette Comer (The Loved One) stars as an idealistic L.A. County social worker who investigates the case of Mrs. Wadsworth (former 50s starlet Ruth Roman of Strangers on a Train fame), her two buxom daughters, and son “Baby”, a mentally-disabled man who sleeps in a crib, eats in a high-chair, crawls, bawls, and wears diapers. But what secrets of unnatural attachment – and sexual obsession – are all of these women hiding? Marianna Hill (The Godfather Part II) and Michael Pataki (Grave of the Vampire) co-star in this psychotic stunner from director Ted Post (Magnum Force, Beneath the Planet of the Apes), restored from the original film negative for the first time ever on Blu-ray.
Bloody Moon Synopsis
As the “body count” genre stabbed its way into audiences’ hearts in the early ’80s, EuroTrash auteur Jess Franco (Sadomania, Mansion of the Living Dead) was asked to create his own saga of slaughtered schoolgirls complete with gratuitous nudity, graphic violence, and gory set pieces. But just when you thought you’d seen it all, Franco shocked the world by delivering surprising style, genuine suspense, and a cavalcade of depravity that includes incest, voyeurism, and roller disco. The luscious Olivia Pascal of Vanessa fame stars in this twisted thriller that was banned in England yet is now presented uncut and uncensored – including the complete “stone mill power saw” sequence – for the first time ever on Blu-ray!
