OLIVE FILMS' MAY HORRORS
Our friends at Olive Films have announced an impressive slate of genre titles being released this month. There’s something for everyone including a forgotten slasher film, an underwater monster movie and some science fiction horrors for good measure.
On May 19th, the following titles will make the jump to Hi-Def as they make their first appearance on the Blu-ray format.
Satan’s Blade (1984) is a tale of demonic possession that begins when a mountain resort is terrorized by a vengeful spirit. When a local resident falls under the control of the malicious presence, he begins terrorizing the patrons of a local ski lodge.
It! The Terror Beyond Space (1958) is the classic sci/fi monster movie that has inspired countless filmmakers over the past five decades. When the first manned mission to Mars is decimated by unknown forces, a rescue ship is sent to figure out what happened. The terror begins when the horrifying creature responsible for the destruction stows away on the arriving vessel. Starring Marshall Thompson (The Clock) and Shirley Patterson (The Land Unknown).
Peter Benchley’s: Creature (1998) tells the story of a small island community being terrorized by a giant shark-like creature. The abandoned military base may have something to do with this, but the citizens led by marine biologists Craig T. Nelson (Poltergeist) and Kim Cattral (Porky’s) are the ones that will be forced to fight for survival. The TV mini-series makes its hi-def debut later this month!
