The BURNING Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack

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)!
