House on Willow Street Blu-ray & DVD: From Scream Factory: "We are pleased to announce that we have a new IFC Midnight film planned for release on Blu-ray & DVD this August!
THE HOUSE ON WILLOW STREET – The perfect kidnapping goes gruesomely awry in this shock-a-minute, supernatural wild ride. When a band of desperate criminals, led by the tough-as nails Hazel (Sharni Vinson, You're Next), abduct Katherine (Carlyn Burchell), the daughter of an ultra-wealthy family, they are certain they've found themselves an easy target for ransom. What the gang doesn't realize is that although they have Katherine's body, her soul has already been spoken for … by a demonic force that's about to turn the tables on them. As Katherine's captors confront demons, both personal and supernatural, it soon becomes clear to Hazel that for this simple ransoming, there will be Hell to pay.
