Blu-ray & DVD Release Details for 1983′s Curtains

Curtains-boxSynapse Films is bringing another cult classic horror title to Blu-ray and DVD for the first time. Very few horror fans have heard of 1983′s Curtains, let alone have seen it, but you’ll get your chance on July 8th:

“UNSEEN ON HOME VIDEO FOR OVER 30 YEARS, THE CANADIAN HORROR CLASSIC MAKES ITS DIGITAL HOME VIDEO DEBUT FROM SYNAPSE FILMS!

“… the classiest, most chilling thriller to come along in quite a while… rich in surprises of a gripping sensuous nature.” – The Hollywood Reporter

John Vernon (CHAINED HEAT, National Lampoon’s ANIMAL HOUSE) and Samantha Eggar (THE BROOD, THE EXTERMINATOR) star in this horror classic from the golden age of the slasher genre.

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?

Lovingly re-mastered in 2K resolution from original vault materials virtually untouched for over 30 years, CURTAINS makes its high-definition world premiere from Synapse Films.”
