Two Cult Horror Films Heading to Blu-ray

Posted March 27, 2013 02:46 PM by Webmaster

Severin FilmsIndependent distributors Severin Films have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray two cult horror films: Paul Harrison's The House of Seven Corpses (1974) and James Kenelm Clarke's Trauma a.k.a House on Straw Hill (1976). The two releases will be available for purchase on June 11th.

The House of Seven Corpses

Hollywood legends John Ireland (Red River, Satan's Cheerleaders), John Carradine (The Grapes of Wrath, Vampire Hookers) and Howard Hughes paramour Faith Domergue (Cult of the Cobra, This Island Earth) star in this much-loved 70s shocker about a film crew shooting an occult drama in a sinister manor (actually the former Utah Governor's Mansion with its own grisly history of family bloodshed). Newly transferred in HD from original vault materials and featuring an exclusive archive interview with the legendary horror icon John Carradine as well as a revealing new audio commentary.

Special Features:
  • Exclusive Interview With Star John Carradine
  • Audio Commentary With Associate Producer Gary Kent, Moderated By The Alamo Drafthouse's Lars Nilsen
  • Theatrical Trailer
House On Straw Hill

Banned in Britain for thirty years, House On Straw Hill is a shockingly violent and erotic tale of seduction, brutality and revenge. Cult movie icon Udo Kier (Mark Of The Devil, The Theatre Bizarre) stars as a successful novelist suffering from writer's block, who rents a country cottage in the hope of finding inspiration. But the arrival of a sensual secretary, played by Linda Hayden (Blood on Satan's Claw, Taste the Blood Of Dracula) sets in motion a chain of bizarre events that culminate in an unrestrained explosion of sex and savagery. Also known as Exposť and condemned as a Video Nasty in the UK, this sleazy classic from Brian Smedley-Aston (Vampyres) and co-starring the notorious Fiona Richmond - Britain's No.1 sex symbol - is now fully restored from the only uncut elements and is available for the first time in the U.S. with brand new extras.

Special Features:
  • Audio Commentary with director James Kenelm Clarke and producer Brian Smedley-Aston
  • All-new interviews with director James Kenelm Clarke and star Linda Hayden
  • Theatrical Trailer

I've seen House of Seven Corpses. It was a staple on tv when I was growing up. It's very low budget, but it's well done and pretty creepy at times. Especially the undead zombie thing. It's been in the public domain for a long time, so the DVD I have is not horrible, but could be much better. Hope it's a remastered copy.

I've never heard of the other.

Never heard of either but I looked up House of Seven Corpses and it's right up my alley. Check out this review on YouTube with a long clip that gives you a good idea of the kind of movie it is. I'm in

WOW, I never thought I'd see Seven Corpses on Blu Ray. I don't even think it got a DVD release. I remember renting it back in the 90s from some mom and pop video store and it was so cool then. Few times I've watched as an adult and not as great but still a piece of horror I'm glad isn't disappearing.

I have the WAY OOP DVD of Seven Corpses, but an upgrade sounds great! And I've always been curious about Straw Hill.

in for HOUSE OF SEVEN CORPSES.... I have an old, crummy dvd from Image in full frame and edited (at least I think it is... it seems like scenes are missing based on memories from a very long time ago...)

I thought I'd never heard of either, but it turns out I do know House On Straw Hill as Exposť. I videotaped a middle-of-the-night TV showing many years ago. Can't remember if it was any good, though.

1970's horror is the best, can't believe I missed these. I must have taken ill (with disco fever).

So it's fair to say Severin and Synapse have become the horror studios in America and that Blue Underground have forced themselves into being more or less pointless?

these sound intriguing. I may blind buy if they are not too pricey. I sure wish that Severin was releasing "House of Terror" (1973)! Unfortunately, Retromedia got the jump on that title this past December (on dvd only).

I am quite surprised about Seven Corpses, as it's hardly a prime target for HD restoration (not that I'm complaining). Expose is truly great news, however, and I'll definitely be picking it up (for some reason the BBFC took a particular dislike to the film here in the UK and even a few years ago, despite the 'ban' being lifted, it was still passed only with cuts).

Just saw a trailer for 'Seven Corposes'...looks like my kind of flick! I'll blind buy if the price is right.
