July will find Synapse Films taking a tour through obscure slasher film territory when they release a special edition of the Canadian cult item Curtains. This horror film blends stalk and slash elements with a unique reality vs. fantasy angle and boasts a cast that includes John Vernon and Samantha Eggar. Synapse will release their new high-definition transfer in separate blu-ray and DVD editions and both will include a roster of new extras produced for this set. Read on for all the chilling Canuxploitation details, including a rundown of the extras…
John Vernon (CHAINED HEAT, National Lampoon’s ANIMAL HOUSE) and Samantha Eggar (THE BROOD, THE EXTERMINATOR) star in this horror classic from the golden age of the slasher genre.
A group of women gather for a weekend casting call at the secluded mansion of director Jonathan Stryker (Vernon). He’s searching for the perfect woman to play the role of the crazed character “Audra”, and these women are just dying for the chance to play her! Stryker’s last star, Samantha Sherwood (Eggar), is so determined to get the part, she committed herself to an asylum to prepare for the role. Unfortunately for all, a crazed killer in a disgusting “hag” mask is viciously murdering everyone one by one. Who will survive the final curtain call?
Lovingly re-mastered in 2K resolution from original vault materials virtually untouched for over 30 years, CURTAINS makes its high-definition world premiere from Synapse Films.
