Looks like Scream Factory is going to keep the vintage horror rolling for home theater fanatics through the entire Spring season: they’ve just announced their may lineup, which offers a one-two punch of The Burning and The Town That Dreaded Sundown.  The former is one of the all-time great slasher movies, complete with riotously gruesome Tom Savini effects, and the latter is a true-crime psycho story that has developed a cult following in recent years.  To make things even sweeter, the set for TOWN will also throw in THE EVICTORS, another film from the same director, as a bonus.  Read on for all the monstrous May-day details…

Gather around the campfire to die!

A group of summer camp pranksters get the scare of their lives when they target the camp’s creepy caretaker…and he takes bloody revenge! “Gruesome” (The Hollywood Reporter) and “stomach-churning” (Boxoffice), this terrifying tale is “a brilliant slasher flick [and] gory as hell” (slasherpool.com)!

After a cruel joke goes awry, severely burning him and subjecting him to five years of intensive, unsuccessful skin graft treatments, Cropsy (Lou David) is back at camp…and ready to wreak havoc on those who scarred him! With his hedge clippers in hand, he terrorizes the camp and systematically mutilates each victim. Can a few courageous campers save themselves and destroy this demented madman before he kills them all?

Starring Brian Matthews (Crime Stopper), Leah Ayres (Bloodsport), Brian Backer (Fast Times At Ridgemont High), Larry Joshua (Dances With Wolves) and featuring early film appearances by Fisher Stevens (Short Circuit), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (Raising Arizona), The Burning is a “grim and nasty movie [that] gets under your skin” (efilmcritic.com)!
