THE RESURRECTED (also known as SHATTERBRAIN) (1991) – Since the beginning of time, man has struggled with death. Now Charles Dexter Ward (Chris Sarandon, Fright Night), a wealthy scientist, may have found a way to beat it. Using an ancient diary and human remains, Ward begins a terrifying and bloody pursuit for immortality. By the time his wife Claire (Jane Sibbett, Arrival II) hires private investigator John March (John Terry, Full Metal Jacket) to halt the horrible experiments, it's too late … the dead have been resurrected! From Director Dan O’Bannon (The Return of the Living Dead). Extras in progress but expect quite a bit. We can also confirm that we will be doing a new film transfer.

AFTER MIDNIGHT (1989) Higher education is about to dive into the depths of hell with this trilogy of terror that will scare you senseless. Marg Helgenberger (Species) stars in this psychological thriller that's guaranteed to get inside your head ... and stay there! According to Professor Edward Derek, the only way to truly understand the psychology of fear is to be afraid ... very afraid! So he invites his class home for a night of three spine-chilling stories: First, a married couple lose their heads in a haunted house; next ravenous guard dogs prowl for cute coeds; and finally a psychopathic killer stalks a terrified telephone operator. But as the frightened freshmen get a hands-on lesson in real fear, the extracurricular creep-fest enters a class of its own, with a fiery final test that could scare the students to death! Extras and new HD transfer in progress. Street date is 9/26 but get it two weeks early if you order from us @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/film/film-horror/after-midnight
THE SPELL (1977): 15-year-old Rita lives in an ordinary town, attends an ordinary high school and wants to lead an ordinary life … but Rita is far from an ordinary teenager. Overweight and self-conscious, Rita (Susan Myers, James At 16) is the victim of cruel teasing by many of her classmates. Only her mother (Lee Grant, Damien: Omen II) and her gym teacher (Lelia Goldoni , Invasion Of The Body Snatchers) seem to understand her. But their understanding is not enough to contain the rage that wells up within Rita. And when it does, the rage causes a supernatural power inside of her to take over. Those who are against Rita begin to die. There seems to be no way to stop the terror once Rita has cast her spell. This terrifying television film from 1977 also stars James Olsen (Amityville II: The Possession), Helen Hunt (Twister) and was written by genre writer Brian Taggert (Visiting Hours, Poltergeist III and Omen IV: The Awakening). Extras and new HD transfer in progress. It will be presented in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
