The Burning and The Town That Dreaded Sundown Announced

Posted February 1, 2013 04:55 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryScream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has detailed its upcoming Blu-ray releases of Charles B. Pierce's The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976) and Tony Maylam's The Burning (1981). Both will street on May 21.

Both movies debut for the first time on Blu-ray. The Burning will be presented as a Collector's Edition Blu-ray + DVD Combo pack that boasts insightful bonus content, and a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art. The Town That Dreaded Sundown Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack contains director Charles B. Pierce's rare cult movie classic The Evictor as a bonus movie presentation on the DVD, plus more extras to be announced at a later date.

The Burning

After a cruel joke goes awry, severely burning him and subjecting him to five years of intensive, unsuccessful skin graft treatments, Cropsy (Lou David) is back at camp... and ready to wreak havoc on those who scarred him! With his hedge clippers in hand, he terrorizes the camp and systematically mutilates each victim. Can a few courageous campers save themselves and destroy this demented madman before he kills them all?

*Special features are currently in development.

Preliminary bonus features include:
  • Audio Commentary with director Tony Maylam, moderated by Alan Jones
  • Blood 'n' Fire Memories
The Town That Dreaded Sundown

When two young lovers are savagely beaten and tortured on a back country road in Texarkana, local police are baffled. Three weeks later, two more people are slain in a similar setting and Deputy Norman Ramsey fears a pattern might be developing. Texas Ranger J.D. Morales (Ben Johnson, The Wild Bunch) is brought in to help. The two officers must find "the Phantom Killer" before he can kill again. Also starring Andrew Prine (Grizzly) and Dawn Wells (Gilligan's Island), directed by Charles B. Pierce (The Legend Of Boggy Creek), and based on one of America's most baffling murder cases, this horrifying suspense thriller is a shocking experience you'll never forget.

Special Features for The Town That Dreaded Sundown Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack are currently in development.

Great news, I've never seen "Town" but heard of it for years. The Burning is imo one of the better 80s slashers.
