Anchor Bay Fright Packs 1 and 2

It seems as if since the introduction of DVD to the home market that Anchor Bay Entertainment has been the horror fan’s best friend, and indeed they are They take titles ranging from obscure to beloved and give them the DVD treatments of award-winning films From unbelievably cool packaging like The Evil Dead: Book of the Dead Edition to the most comprehensive packaging of a film ever like The Ultimate DVD Edition of George A Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, they do it all. The value that they bring to the table is nearly unmatched by other companies, and it seems as if their wellspring of cool ideas will never stop! Enter The Fright Packs!

“Anchor Bay has always sought to not only present the best horror films but also explore unique and creative ways in presenting these classics to the fans ‘Fright Packs’ represent a fresh approach to branding and creatively packaging collections of films in a fun, thoroughly tongue-in-cheek way,” remarked Tom Bambard, Brand Director of Anchor Bay Entertainment

Tom is dead on! There’s simply too much value in these packages to resist! For a very reasonable price you get 6 DVD’s (each with a myriad of DVD extras) of the same theme held together in a special “six-pack” type foil packaging complete with handle

Let’s take a look at the first:

Here we get a healthy dose of evil ranging from mutant killers to The Exorcist Italian style! Included are The Antichrist, Fear No Evil, the Paul Naschy classic Curse of the Devil, To The Devil a Daughter, the unofficial third entry in Lamberto Bava’s Demons saga — The Church, and the second best film starring Linda Blair ever — Hell Night! The big red guy down below would be proud!

Fright Pack: Campy Classics

Ever wonder where mega-star George Clooney got his start? It wasn’t robbing casinos or playing a doctor on T.V.; it was fighting The Red Menace now known as The Killer Tomato and hanging out at Horror High! Phew!
