Full Special Features Unveiled for Scream Factory's Funhouse Blu-ray





Since the announcement of the Scream Factory line of Blu-rays and DVDs we've been foaming at the mouth with anticipation. We've got an update on one of their more anticipated packages The Funhouse! Read on for the skinny on what to expect!

THE FUNHOUSE Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD
Director Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist) pays affectionate tribute to various classic horror movies in this tale of two teenage couples who spend the night in a sleazy carnival funhouse.

On her first date with Buzz (Cooper Huckabee, True Blood), Amy (Elizabeth Berridge, Amadeus) disobeys her father and goes to the carnival with Richie (Miles Chapin, Hair) and Liz (Largo Woodruff), but their first date may end up as their last. After witnessing a murder, the four terrified teens are trapped in the maze of the funhouse and stalked by a real monster, a horribly deformed killer who lurks among the freakish exhibits to butcher them one by one. Also stars Sylvia Miles (Midnight Cowboy) and Kevin Conway (in three roles). Featuring special makeup designs by Academy Award®-winner Rick Baker (An American Werewolf In London, Ed Wood).

Elizabeth Berridge, Cooper Huckabee, Miles Chaplin, Sylvia Miles, William Finley, Kevin Conway as The Barker in THE FUNHOUSE

    Sounds good. This one is already in my Amazon shopping cart. I'm curious to hear Hooper's commentary.

    There's a focussed clarity to this movie. It's very tightly paced like a good short story. This is a lost art as modern films (even indie) tend to be self-indulgent and so interested in style they forget the substance (or have confused the two). Sometimes it's good to let the story play out without technical distractions.
