‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’ and ‘The Burning’ are on its way on High Definition DVD from Scream Factory! I remember being scared of the VHS box cover for ‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’ when I was young. I didn’t know it was a true story about someone who never got caught. I just knew it was about a hooded guy who looked really creepy. ‘The Burning’ is a classic as well.
From the release:
THE BURNING is created and produced by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and features Fisher Stevens (The Cove) , Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (The Piano) in early film roles plusamazing gore effects from Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead). It will be presented as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™ + DVD combo packed with extras (which are still in development but will carry over material that was on the prior MGM DVD release) and a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art. ***SPECIAL OFFER: Those who order The BURNING from us at ScreamFactoryDVD.com directly will receive the exclusive 18”x 24” poster featuring the newly commissioned artwork created by Nathan Thomas Milliner. Only 300 posters will be printed, so these are only available while supplies last.****
The highly requested THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN stars Oscar-Winner Ben Johnson and Dawn Wells (Gilligan’s Island) and will be presented in Blu-ray + DVD combo with a new HD transfer of the film and extras (still in development and will be announced at a later date). The DVD will contain a rare bonus feature-length movie, THE EVICTORS (from 1979) that is also from the same Director as TOWN and has never been on DVD before.
