All right, so it didn’t exactly blow away The Foywonder when he reviewed it, but I can’t help but still be somewhat interested in seeing how Scourge turns out. I won’t have long to wait as Fangoria has learned that Lionsgate will be dropping Scourge to DVD come February 24th.
So what’s it about? Glad you asked: Scourge tells the story of an ancient pestilence which has been set free in a small town after being entombed for a century and a half. As mutilated bodies rapidly pile up, nothing stands between the spawning scourge and the rest of the town except our young heroes, Scott and Jesse, who rediscover their love for each other in the process.
Sounds like fun, no? I have to admit I’m digging the DVD cover art, too, despite its obvious homage to Species. No features have been announced for the Scourge DVD, not that I’m surprised, but you can check out the trailer below!
