Sentin-bluLos Angeles, CA – Scream Factory has announced the September 22 release of the 1977 hor­ror clas­sic The Sentinel on Blu-ray with a slate of new bonus fea­tures.

When a beau­ti­ful mod­el, Alison Parker (Cristina Raines, Nashville, The Duellists), rents an apart­ment in a gloomy New York brown­stone, lit­tle does she real­ize that an unspeak­able hor­ror awaits her behind its doors… a mys­te­ri­ous gate­way to hell. Alison likes her eccen­tric new neigh­bors, so it comes as a shock when she’s told that, except for a strange old priest, she’s the only ten­ant.


Based on Jeffrey Konvitz’s best-sell­ing nov­el, this con­tem­po­rary goth­ic chiller fea­tures amaz­ing spe­cial make­up effects by the leg­endary Dick Smith (The Exorcist, Little Big Man) and an incred­i­ble assem­blage of stars includ­ing Chris Sarandon, Ava Gardner, José  Ferrer, John Carradine, Arthur Kennedy, Eli Wallach, Martin Balsam, Burgess Meredith, Beverly D’Angelo, Deborah Raffin, Jerry Orbach, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Berenger and Christopher Walken. Director Michael Winner (Death Wish) comes up with some­thing to ter­ri­fy every­one in this spine-tin­gling exer­cise in super­nat­u­ral hor­ror.
