TCM blu-ray, Barracuda
Dark Sky Films hits us with two DVD offerings on September 30th, here are the full details along with cover art:
THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE $29.98 SRP
It has been called âgrisly,â âsick,â and âperverse,” as well as âraw,â âunshakeable,â and âthe movie that redefined horror.â It was attacked by churches, banned by governments, and acclaimed by only the bravest of critics. It stunned audiences worldwide and set a new standard in movie terror forever. In 1974, writer-producer-director Tobe Hooper unleashed this dark, visionary tale about a group of five young friends who face a nightmare of torment at the hands of a depraved Texas clan. Today it remains unequaled as a landmark of outlaw filmmaking and unparalleled in its impact as perhaps the most frightening motion picture ever made. Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray!
DRIVE IN DOUBLE FEATURE: ISLAND FURY/BARRACUDA, $14.98 SRP
Island Fury: While visiting a remote island with friends, two young girls discover a cache of mob money, as well as a clan of bloodthirsty cannibals who pick off the vacationers one by one. The girls manage to escape but are kidnapped years later by wiseguys hell-bent on getting back their loot. Also more notoriously known as Please Don’t Eat the Babies, this strange shocker was one of the last horror films from independent producer Mardi Rustam (Eaten Alive, Evils of the Night). Barracuda: The quaint seaside town of Palm Cove is home to upstanding citizens, good ol’ fashioned southern hospitality, and a deadly rash of barracuda attacks. The town sheriff (William Kerwin, Blood Feast, Scum of the Earth) and a young marine biologist (Wayne Crawford, God’s Bloody Acre) join forces to discover that the culprits are none other than the local chemical plant and its odious managers. Produced in the wake of Jaws, this homegrown “regional” film is equal parts horror and suspense, with industrial-government conspiracy themes predating those of The X-Files and Halloween III.
