DVD, Blu-ray Details for The Burning, The Town That Dreaded Sundown

Disfigured and hooded mad killers are on the loose! On May 21st, Scream Factory will unleash the gory summer camp slasher The Burning and the long sought-after The Town That Dreaded Sundown. Both movies debut for the first time on Blu-ray, with Town making its debut on DVD as well.

The Burning is created and produced by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and features Fisher Stevens (Short Circuit), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (The Piano) in early film roles plus amazing gore effects from Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead).

It will be presented as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD combo packed with extras (which are still in development but will carry over material that was on the prior MGM DVD release) and a reversible wrap with original theatrical key art.

Those who order The Burning from directly will receive the exclusive 18”x 24” poster featuring the newly commissioned artwork created by Nathan Thomas Milliner. Only 300 posters will be printed, so these are only available while supplies last.

The highly requested The Town That Dreaded Sundown stars Oscar-Winner Ben Johnson and Dawn Wells (Gilligan’s Island) and will be presented in Blu-ray/DVD combo with a new HD transfer of the film and extras (still in development and will be announced at a later date). The DVD will contain a rare bonus feature-length movie, The Evictors (from 1979) that is also from the same Director as TOWN and has never been on DVD before. 

You’ll find artwork here.
