THE THEATRE BIZARRE

The concept was unprecedented: Enlist seven of horror’s most transgressive filmmakers – Douglas Buck (FAMILY PORTRAITS), Buddy Giovinazzo (COMBAT SHOCK), David Gregory (PLAGUE TOWN), Karim Hussain (SUBCONSCIOUS CRUELTY), Jeremy Kasten (THE ATTIC EXPEDITIONS), splatter FX legend Tom Savini and Richard Stanley (HARDWARE) – and give them total creative freedom to create their own short films inspired by the Grand Guignol. The result – starring genre icons like Udo Kier (FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN), Catriona MacColl (THE BEYOND), Lynn Lowry (THE CRAZIES) and Debbie Rochon (AMERICAN NIGHTMARE) – has been called “wildly unique” (Dread Central), “hilarious, grotesque and scary” (Bloody Disgusting) and “one of the best horror anthologies of all time” (Paste). Experience “a trip you’ll never forget” (Mondo Digital), finally officially available on Blu-ray with hours of exclusive Special Features.

PLAGUE TOWN

A tourist family lost in the Irish countryside. A remote village that hides a hideous secret.

Experience this “brilliant” (Quiet Earth) hybrid of grisly ‘70s shockers and graphic 21st century folk-horror – hailed as “an icy hand gradually sliding along the back of your neck for 90 minutes” (Mondo Digital) – from co-writer/director David Gregory (BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON) and the producers of STAKELAND, now featuring an uncensored HD master and Special Features produced exclusively for this edition.

FAMILY PORTRAITS

Over the course of seven years, three short films about the brutal dissolution of the American family – Cutting Moments (1997), Home (1998) and Prologue (2003) – elicited both horrified gasps and standing ovations at film festivals around the world. When combined into a theatrical feature, this trilogy by writer/producer/director/editor Douglas Buck – whose directing credits would eventually include the SISTERS remake and ‘The Accident’ segment of THE THEATRE BIZARRE – was hailed as “nightmarish” (The New York Times), “like Todd Solondz on crack” (Digitally Obsessed) and “the most chilling portrait of the loss of humanity in the manicured lawns of Middle America ever made” (LA Weekly). Buck’s “unbearably intense and enormously moving” (Filmecho) stunner is now scanned in 2k from the original negative for the first time ever with all-new Special Features.
