Did you know that John Carpenter was working on an anthology horror project at Showtime in the 90’s? It never became a full series, but the first segments were collected together into an anthology horror movie, titled Body Bags. The DVD has out-of-print for a while, but Scream Factory announced that they will be adding it to their Blu-ray selection.
The movie features three main segments, directed by John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper, who also appear in the movie, along with Wes Craven, Sam Raimi, and a number of other genre icons/stars:
Via Blu-ray.com: “Robert Carradine (The Player) and David Naughton (Witchboard II) pump-up for high-octane horror when a satanic serial killer stalks “The Gas Station.” Stacy Keach (False Identity), Deborah Harry (Videodrome) and rock superstar Sheena Eston wig-out in the hair-raising tale of tonsorial terror, “Hair.” And special guest director Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist) takes the reins when Mark Hamill (Star Wars) and Twiggy (The Boyfriend) set their sights on the supernatural and stare Evil right in “The Eye.” So zip yourself up tight and chill out with host John Carpenter in the shock-around-the-clock scarefest that will keep you coming back for morgue! ”
The announcement was light on details, but Scream Factory promised that it will be available before the end of 2013. More release details, including bonus features will be available later this summer. To learn more about the upcoming Scream Factory line-up, visit our recent coverage:
