Scream Factory Presents

THE HOUSE WHERE EVIL DWELLS

&

GHOST WARRIOR

On Blu-ray January 5, 2016

Scream Factory presents a dou­ble dose of samu­rai action with The House Where Evil Dwells & Ghost Warrior on Blu-ray on January 5, 2016.

These two mar­tial arts- themed thrillers from the 80s are now final­ly avail­able for the first time on Blu-ray, in a release includ­ing a new high-def­i­n­i­tion trans­fer for The House Where Evil Dwells.

THWED-GW-bluTHE HOUSE WHERE EVIL DWELLS

A cen­tu­ry ago, a samu­rai bru­tal­ly mur­dered his adul­ter­ous wife and her lover before tak­ing his own life. Now, the Fletcher fam­i­ly has found what they think is their per­fect Japanese home — not know­ing it’s the same house where the mur­ders occurred. But as strange events esca­late and the ghosts of the dead toy with the liv­ing, the Fletchers dis­cov­er they’ve become unwit­ting play­ers in a hor­ri­ble reenactment…one which they may not sur­vive! This chill­ing ghost sto­ry stars Edward Albert (Galaxy of Terror), Susan George (Straw Dogs), Doug McClure (Humanoids from the Deep) and is direct­ed by Kevin Connor (Motel Hell).

GHOST WARRIOR (AKA SWORDKILL)

Frozen in ice for over 300 years a dead­ly samu­rai war­rior… lives again! While explor­ing a cave, two skiers find the body of a 400-year-old samu­rai war­rior entombed in ice. He is brought to the United States in a hush-hush oper­a­tion and revived through cryosurgery. Unfortunately, he is then forced to bat­tle for his free­dom, dig­ni­ty and life. This Charles Band pro­duc­tion stars Janet Julian (King of New York, Humongous).
