Scream Factory recently announced the Blu-ray/DVD Collector’s Edition of The Burning, but only listed preliminary bonus features. We now have full details on everything that will be included in this release:
"Disfigured and hooded mad killers are on the loose this spring as SCREAM FACTORY™ invites loyal fans and collectors to embark on a nostalgic trip filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense and terror! On May 21, 2013, the gory summer camp slasher The BURNING created and produced by Harvey Weinstein and features Fisher Stevens (The Cove), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (The Piano) in their early film roles...
The BURNING Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack: "Gather around the campfire to die! A group of summer camp pranksters get the scare of their lives when they target the camp's creepy caretaker...and he takes bloody revenge! "Gruesome" (The Hollywood Reporter) and "stomach-churning" (Boxoffice), this terrifying tale is "a brilliant slasher flick [and] gory as hell" (slasherpool.com)!
After a cruel joke goes awry, severely burning him and subjecting him to five years of intensive, unsuccessful skin graft treatments, Cropsy (Lou David) is back at camp...and ready to wreak havoc on those who scarred him! With his hedge clippers in hand, he terrorizes the camp and systematically mutilates each victim. Can a few courageous campers save themselves and destroy this demented madman before he kills them all?
Starring Brian Matthews (Crime Stopper), Leah Ayres (Bloodsport), Brian Backer (Fast Times At Ridgemont High), Larry Joshua (Dances With Wolves) and featuring early film appearances by Fisher Stevens (Short Circuit), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (Raising Arizona), The Burning is a “grim and nasty movie [that] gets under your skin” (efilmcritic.com)!"
