FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
BLOODY BIRTHDAY, BLOODY MOON and THE BABY to debut on Blu-Ray From Severin Films 7/8/14
Three classic horror titles will get the HD treatment for the first time. Fans are encouraged to follow the Severin Facebook page, where fans will have the opportunity to win original 1982 Bloody Moon video posters. There is also a bundle of all three films available exclusively from the Severin webstore!
BLOODY BIRTHDAY– Get ready for the rarely seen slasher classic from the ‘80s that may also be the most disturbing ‘killer kids’ movies in grindhouse history: Three babies are simultaneously born in the same hospital at the peak of a full solar eclipse. Ten years later, these adorable youngsters suddenly begin a kiddie killing spree of stranglings, shootings, stabbings, beatings and beyond. Can the town’s grown-ups stop these pint-sized serial killers before their blood-soaked birthday bash? K.C. Martel (E.T., Growing Pains), Joe Penny (Jake And The Fat Man), Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja), screen legends Susan Strasberg and Jose Ferrer, and MTV vixen Julie Brown — whose nude bedroom dance remains a landmark of celebrity skin — star in this still-controversial shocker from director Ed Hunt (The Brain, Diary Of A Sinner), now featuring an all-new HD transfer from the original vault elements.
THE BABY– An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, 70s fashions and ‘sick love’. The result remains one of the most disturbing movies in Hollywood history: Anjanette Comer (The Loved One) stars as an idealistic L.A. County social worker who investigates the case of Mrs. Wadsworth (former ‘50s starlet Ruth Roman of Strangers On A Train fame), her two buxom daughters, and son ‘Baby’, a mentally-disabled man who sleeps in a crib, eats in a high-chair, crawls, bawls and wears diapers. But what secrets of unnatural attachment — and sexual obsession — are all of these women hiding? Marianna Hill (The Godfather Part II) and Michael Pataki (Grave Of The Vampire) co-star in this psychotic stunner from director Ted Post (Magnum Force, Beneath The Planet Of The Apes), now fully restored from the original film negative for the first time on Blu-ray.
BLOODY MOON– As the ‘body-count’ genre stabbed its way into audiences’ hearts in the early ‘80s, EuroTrash auteur Jess Franco (Sadomania, Mansion Of The Living Dead) was asked to create his own saga of slaughtered schoolgirls complete with gratuitous nudity, graphic violence, and gory set pieces. But just when you thought you’d seen it all, Franco shocked the world by delivering surprising style, genuine suspense and a cavalcade of depravity that includes incest, voyeurism and roller disco. The luscious Olivia Pascal ofVanessa fame stars in this twisted thriller that was banned in England yet is now presented uncut and uncensored — including the complete ‘stone mill power saw’ sequence — for the first time ever on Blu-ray!
