The Beast Within and Crawlspace Heading to Blu-ray

Posted May 31, 2013 03:42 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryScream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has announced that it plans to add two titles to its Blu-ray catalog: Philippe Mora's The Beast Within (1982) and David Schmoeller's Crawlspace (1986). The two releases will arrive on the market later this year.

The Beast Within

Some boys have raging hormones...but his are absolutely furious! 18-year-old Michael MacCleary - the progeny of an unholy union between his mother and a swamp beasty - is on the verge of becoming a man...EATER! And as the inherited evil in his blood gnaws at his soul, Michael must return to the swamp to uncover the terrifying secret identity of his father - before his nasty natural tendencies force him to make jambalaya out of the locals! Starring Ronny Cox, Bibi Besch, and Paul Clemens.


Renter Beware! Psychotic landlord Karl Gunter wants to charge you an arm and a leg for the privilege of tenancy! Spying on his female renters from an elaborate network of crawlspaces, Gunther lures new victims into his torture chamber with an incessant "tap, tap, tap!" Can a new prospective renter stop this apartment building's rapid turnover rate... or will Gunther continue to make a killing?!? Starring Klaus Kinski, Talia Balsam, and Barbara Whinnery.

I'm actually not familiar with these two movies. But I love Scream Factory and will always support them. Blind buys both.

Sounds fascinating... Might have to also blind buy both.

Ator, You will love them if you love 80s indie horror films. "The Beast Within" is quite notorious, due to its rape scenes and graphic violence and a pretty cool extended transformation scene (those were all the rage in the early 80s, a'la "American Werewolf" and "Howling"). It has a good cast, too. "Crawlspace" is a creepy little sickie with crazy Klaus Kinski running a rooming house (that only rents to young girls), he's also a former Nazi war criminal. Slashy/sick/perversion follows.

Blimey, I never thought I'd see these again! I'll buy them if I can get them cheap enough.

Once again, high marks for Shout / Scream Factory. I love their dedication in bringing out films that have been out-of-print for years! Thanks guys!

Philly Q, The great thing about Scream/Shout is that they usually release almost everything really cheap. I just got the awesome blu ray of "Rolling Thunder" for 13 bucks!

I only remember the Beast Within from when I was a kid, and I snuck downstairs in the middle of the night and turned on HBO and saw the transformation scene. It gave me nightmares. If I saw it now it would probably make me laugh though.

Edit: Yep, just Bing'ed it and watched it on youtube. It's pretty hilarious now, but I can see why it grossed me out back in the day.

I believe I saw some of The Beast Within on TV when I was younger. I will probably check it out on Blu-ray.

Wow, I remember seeing Crawlspace on tv many years ago and being genuinely creeped out.

Glad the German crawl space ended up being region b locked. I knew scream would get this from MGM.

God bless them for regularly putting out movies like these in good quality at an affordable price. Glad to upgrade Beast Within to blu. Will pick up both.
Aside from other horror goodness, Beast Within also has an unusual score by Les Baxter.

I've always liked The Beast Within, but Crawspace, I had never seen. Most definitely, I'll get The Beast Within for sure.
