SCREAM FACTORY PRESENTS ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS COLLECTOR’S EDITION ON BLU-RAY OCTOBER 5, 2021: "Los Angeles, CA – Elvira’s back and she’s fabulous! On October 5, 2021, Scream Factory proudly presents the camp classic Elvira’s Haunted Hills from the iconic horror host in a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release. The Blu-ray features a brand-new 4K scan of the original camera negative and comes loaded with bonus features including a new introduction by Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, all housed within limited-edition collectible slipcase packaging, while supplies last. Fans who order their copies from shoutfactory.com will also receive an exclusive poster featuring brand-new artwork, while supplies last. With her voluptuous figure, voluminous black hair and hilarious one-liners, the essence of camp oozes from her pores. Elvira’s Haunted Hills culls its outrageousness from the classic Vincent Price/Edgar Allan Poe/Roger Corman films of the early 60s, along with a little Rocky Horror Picture Show and Fearless Vampire Killers. The tale begins in 1851, when Elvira and her maid Zou Zou are en route to perform in the Parisian Revue “Yes I Can Can,” but inadvertently end up at the sinister Lord Vladimere Hellsubus’ medieval castle. Bearing an uncanny resemblance to Vladimere’s long-dead wife, Elvira learns of the Hellsubus curse and finds her life in danger. Will she escape the family curse and the evil Vladimere? And can she keep her hands off of the stable hand long enough to save the day? Special Features:
THE SLEEPOVER by Michael Regina: "Invite your friends and pop some corn for this creepy new graphic novel, THE SLEEPOVER by Michael Regina, on sale October 19th. Perfect for fans of Stranger Things, this middle grade graphic novel follows a group of kids trying to cheer up their friend after a recent loss with a fun-filled sleepover, but their plans soon take a dark turn when they discover his new nanny may literally be a monster!
Matt and his sister Judy are very close to their nanny, Ruby. But when Ruby unexpectedly passes away, their single mother is forced to find a new nanny: the suspiciously perfect Miss Swan…. Miss Swan loves having Matt’s friends over for sleepovers and lets them stay up late and eat whatever they want, but Matt just doesn’t trust her. He thinks she may be the witch from local legend—the one who torments children into the night and then eats them. Is he just having a hard time dealing with Ruby's replacement, as his friends suspect? Has he watched one too many scary movies, as his mom fears? Or are he and his horror-buff friends in for the fright of their lives as they come face-to-face with a real monster?
The Sleepover expertly balances elements of monster and terror with humor and childhood adventure. Set in the early 90’s when the author was the same age as the main character, readers will love the nostalgic backdrop – from sleepovers with your friends to Discmans, video stores, and baggy clothes! But more than just entertainment, The Sleepover features a complex monster and a nuanced look at grief. Miss Swan may be terrifying, but she is also multidimensional, and by the end of the book readers may just sympathize with her. This is also a deeply personal story for Michael Regina, in which many of the details were inspired by his own childhood, and the loss of his beloved nanny. His portrayal of Matt’s complicated emotions and grieving process are authentic, raw, and genuine.
The Sleepover is on sale October 26th, just in time for Halloween!"
