Scream Factory to Release Bad Dreams and Visting Hours
Posted September 4, 2013 05:46 PM by Webmaster
Scream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has revealed that it plans to release on Jean-Claude Lord's Visiting Hours (1982) and Andrew Fleming's Bad Dreams (1988) as a double-feature Blu-ray. The release is expected to arrive on the U.S. market in early 2014.
In the mid-1970s the members of the love cult Unity Fields sought "the ultimate joining" by dousing themselves with gasoline and committing mass suicide. A young girl blown clear of the fiery explosion was the only survivor. Thirteen years later, Cynthia (Jennifer Rubin, Screamers) awakens from a coma inside a psychiatric hospital with only buried memories of that horrific day - but now her fellow patients are each being driven to their own violent suicides. Has the sect's leader (Richard Lynch, Deathsport) returned to claim his final child? Bruce Abbott (Re-Animator) costars in the intense shocker Bad Dreams from director Andrew Fleming (The Craft) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (Punisher: War Zone, The Incredible Hulk).
Academy Award winner Lee Grant (1975 Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actress, Shampoo) stars as outspoken TV journalist Deborah Ballin, whose crusade against domestic violence enrages a creepy loner (a truly disturbing performance by Michael Ironside of Starship Troopers and Top Gun). He brutally attacks the anchorwoman in her home, but Ballin survives and is hospitalized. Her assailant is enraged: He is haunted by a horrific childhood trauma. He enjoys inflicting torture and slow death. And now he has hidden inside the hospital to finish what he started. Can anybody - including her concerned boss (the one and only William Shatner), a frantic nurse (Linda Purl of Happy Days) or Deborah herself - stop the psycho's killing spree before it reaches sick new extremes?
Hell yeah Day 1 forget these other studios that treat us like crap and give us crappy releases with no extras. Scream all the way and Arrow those are the only people I want to give my money to at this point..
