CURTAINS BLU-RAY DELAYED
Good news/ Bad news:
Synapse Films has announced an update on their release of the cult slasher Curtains (1983). Originally given an early July street date, the Blu-ray and DVD is now set for July 29th...and for good reason.
Synapse Films executive Don May has released a statement that explains his decision to delay the release of Curtains by a few weeks, but promises the wait will be worth it. In short, there were some technical issues that threatened to compromise the quality of the stunning new transfer and it was agreed that it was best to face this challenge head on. While ensuring the best picture quality possible, the extra time has also allowed additional supplements to be included!
Curtains was directed by Richard Ciupka (aka Jonathan Stryker) and stars John Vernon, Samantha Eggar, Lesleh Donaldson and Lynne Griffin.
A group of women gather for a weekend casting call at the secluded mansion of director Jonathan Stryker (Vernon). He’s searching for the perfect woman to play the role of the crazed character “Audra”, and these women are just dying for the chance to play her! Stryker’s last star, Samantha Sherwood (Eggar), is so determined to get the part, she committed herself to an asylum to prepare for the role. Unfortunately for all, a crazed killer in a disgusting “hag” mask is viciously murdering everyone one by one. Who will survive the final curtain call?
