SLASHER // VIDEO MAKES SEPTEMBER SPECIAL

 

September 29th is going to be an expensive day for genre fans as Slasher // Video teams with Olive Films to bring you eleven (11!) forgotten gems. Many of these titles have remained elusive for decades and this news is very exciting, particularly to fans of Shot-On-Video (SOV) flicks. That being said, the original source elements of many of these titles are limited to analog tape masters and up-converted to contemporary HD standards.

The picture and audio quality may be considered "subpar" to some discriminating consumers, but it is important to remember that these are the best elements available for this presentation. A 30-year old BetaSP tape will only offer so much capability for enhancement, so with that caveat in place, prepare to experience some awesome sauce from the low budget annals of horror history.
