This Fall you’ll want to make plans to visit the fahkin wicked town of Adam Green’s HOLLISTON when the Complete First Season hits Blu-ray & DVD October 9th! I had the chance to catch the first episode and I loved it for a myriad of reasons. For starters, it’s from two of my favorite directors who’s work you may have seen with films like Hatchet, Frozen & Wrong Turn 2. Secondly, it’s a horror-comedy sitcom made by genre fans for genre fans. There’s tons of wink-wink nods to classic cult films and it has GWAR’s Oderus Urungus playing an imaginary friend. Any more questions as to why you shouldn’t be watching or buying this? Read on for the press release below!

FEARnet’S HIT ORIGINAL TV SERIES
HOLLISTON THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
On Blu-ray and DVD October 9, 2012
The TV show Dread Central called “laugh out loud funny” comes to Blu-ray and DVD with Holliston: The Complete First Season. The FEARnet original series created by Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen) is a twisted mash-up of situation comedy, horror fan hijinks and heavy metal attitude. Holliston: The Complete First Season breaks the mold (and the rules) of traditional TV comedy and creates a new raucous brand of hip humor that’s unlike anything seen before. The set contains the original extended episodes from the season, plus hysterical bonus features including audio commentaries, deleted scenes, bloopers, behind-the-scenes, and much more!
Adam (Green) and Joe (Joe Lynch, Wrong Turn 2) are two down-on-their-luck aspiring horror movie filmmakers trying to break out of their small hometown of Holliston, Massachusetts, and into the Hollywood big leagues while learning to deal with the opposite sex. Joe’s adorably demented girlfriend Laura (Laura Ortiz, The Hills Have Eyes) joins Adam’s ex – and greatest heartbreak of his life – Corri (Corri English, Unrest) in rounding out the ensemble cast of this hilariously original and offbeat re-imagining of the traditional American sitcom that has comedy and horror fans loving its hard hitting laughs, tremendous heart, and slapstick violence. Co-starring Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider as the glam rock loving boss “Lance Rockett” and Dave Brockie (from the band GWAR) as Adam’s imaginary alien friend Oderus Urungus, Holliston: The Complete First Season is filled with cool and crazy cameos and wickedly sly inside jokes – it’s a bloody good time!
Episodes: The Hooker, Camera Rental, Skunked, Candyman, Laura’s Little Twitter, Weekend of Horrors.
Bonus features on Holliston: The Complete First Season Blu-ray and DVD include:
- Audio Commentaries
- Deleted Scenes
- “Road to Holliston” Promos and TV Special Sneak Peek.
