The Sentinel Watches Over Blu-ray and DVD


For my money one of the most frightening and weird films ever made is easily The Sentinel. If you’ve never seen it, or are a fan of it, you’re in for a real treat! The Scream Factory is giving it the epic treatment!

From the Press Release:
Scream Factory has announced the September 22 release of the 1977 horror classic The Sentinel on Blu-ray with a slate of new bonus features.

When a beautiful model, Alison Parker (Cristina Raines; Nashville, The Duellists), rents an apartment in a gloomy New York brownstone, little does she realize that an unspeakable horror awaits her behind its doors… a mysterious gateway to hell. Alison likes her eccentric new neighbors, so it comes as a shock when she’s told that, except for a strange old priest, she’s the only tenant.

Based on Jeffrey Konvitz’s best-selling novel, this contemporary Gothic chiller features amazing special makeup effects by the legendary Dick Smith (The Exorcist, Little Big Man) and an incredible assemblage of stars including Chris Sarandon, Ava Gardner, José Ferrer, John Carradine, Arthur Kennedy, Eli Wallach, Martin Balsam, Burgess Meredith, Beverly D’Angelo, Deborah Raffin, Jerry Orbach, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Berenger, and Christopher Walken. Director Michael Winner (Death Wish) comes up with something to terrify everyone in this spine-tingling exercise in supernatural horror.

  • NEW High Definition 1080p transfer
  • NEW Audio Commentary by actress Cristina Raines
  • NEW Audio Commentary with writer/producer Jeffrey Konvitz
  • Audio Commentary with director Michael Winner
  • NEW interview with assistant director Ralph S. Singleton
