Motel Hell Officially Announced

Posted April 29, 2013 03:33 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoArrow Video have officially announced their upcoming Dual Format Edition of director Kevin Connor's Motel Hell (1980), starring Rory Calhoun, Paul Linke, and Nancy Parsons. The release will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United Kingdom on May 13th.

Fully restored and finally available on Blu-ray for the very first time (anywhere in the world), Motel Hell is a prime cut of 1980's cult cinema. Directed by Englishman Kevin Connor and starring a host of drive-in movie legends, it's a bloody, gruesome and horrific barrel of laughs.

As with previous critically acclaimed releases, including George A. Romero's Knightriders, Mario Bava's Baron Blood, and Lucio Fulci's Zombie Flesh Eaters, Motel Hell has been given the "Arrow treatment". In addition to the beautiful high-def restoration, this deluxe Blu-ray & DVD dual format edition will come complete with a wealth of special features and bonus material, including director's audio commentary and filmed interviews with cast members, three brand new and exclusive featurettes, original trailers and promotional material, and a collectors booklet featuring new writing on the film by renowned critic Kim Newman alongside extracts from Motel Hell the comic book.

Even the packaging is a collector's item; it features a reversible sleeve with both original and newly commissioned artwork by the fantastic Jeff Zornow.

Special Features:
  • High Def Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the film.
  • Uncompressed original 2.0 Stereo PCM audio [Blu-ray].
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.
  • Audio commentary with director Kevin Connor moderated by Calum Waddell.
  • "Another Head on the Chopping Block" - Interview with star Paul Linke.
  • "From Glamour to Gore" - Interview with co-star, and former Playboy Playmate, Rosanne Katon
  • "Ida, Be Thy Name" - A look back at Motel Hell's frightful female protagonist Ida Smith and the secrets of creating a convincing slasher siren, with Scream Queens Elissa Dowling and Chantelle Albers, genre commentator Staci Layne Wilson and critic Shelagh Rowan-Legg.
  • "Back to the Backwoods" - Director Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red) speaks about the importance of Motel Hell.
  • Original Trailer
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Jeff Zornow.
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Kim Newman, illustrated with original archive stills and posters, plus Motel Hell comic book extracts and exclusive interview with artist Chris Moreno.

WTF? What's with all the UK releases, while turning up the nose at the US? That's straight bullshit!!! I'm glad I have an unlocked player, because we've been getting reamed lately here in the Stars & Stripes!

As in the release of "the Funhouse", Arrow is doing right by our American made films on Blu Ray! Amazing packaging too! I have never seen this film look decent either on pay TV or home video (VHS/LD/dvd) -so I am not expecting a miracle. It is a very dark film with some brilliant color flourishes. If they can retain the fine grain image, I will be happy!
