Robert Englund’s 976-EVIL Is Getting a Blu-ray Release

Sony Pictures has announced that they will be releasing a Blu-ray edition of 976-EVIL on October 3rd. This will mark the first time the film has been released on this medium.

The release will include the following special features:

  • *ALL-NEW: Commentary with Director Robert Englund and Set Decorator Nancy Booth Englund
  • *Alternate home video version of the film with 12 extra minutes of footage

Directed by Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), the film stars Stephen Geoffreys, Lezlie Deane, and Sandy Dennis.

High school underdog Hoax Wilmoth (Stephen Geoffreys, Fright Night) fills up the idle hours in his seedy little hometown fending off the local leather-jacketed thugs, avoiding his overbearing mother (Sandy Dennis), and dreaming of a date with trailer park temptress Suzie (Lezlie Deane). But his quietly desperate life takes a terrifying turn when his cousin introduces him to an unusual new hobby – phoning in for his Horrorscope.

Hoax is hooked up with a compellingly hideous demonic force that slowly begins to overtake his entire life, and now there’s more than just a phone bill to pay for anyone who ever dared cross “the neighborhood nerd.”
