Scream Factory continues their onslaught of cult releases with a Blu-ray double feature of Cannon Films’ slashers X-RAY (aka HOSPITAL MASSACRE) and the Klaus Kinski SCHIZOID! Both are making their stateside digital debut on Blu-ray and DVD! X-RAY will be the full uncut version, which should please fans who’ve long held on to their VHS copy. Plus, more Cannon Films on Blu-ray! Truly a wonderful thing to celebrate.
Here’s the official word from Scream Factory:
Two long-lost slasher films from the legendary Cannon Pictures roster finally see their DVD and Blu-ray courtesy of new transfers!
1980’s SCHIZOID (starring Klaus Kinski, Donna Wilkes, Christopher Lloyd and lots of scissor stabbings) is paired with 1982’s X-RAY (also known as HOSPITAL MASSACRE and stars Barbi Benton). If you’re a fan of the mad killer sub-genre from this time period, you will definitely need this double bill for sure.
August release planned. More specific details (i.e. exact street date and extras) will be announced at a later date.
X-RAY FANS TAKE NOTE: Our presentation of X-RAY is the full 89 min version – which is what HOSPITAL MASSACRE was released on VHS in the 80s – and not the cut version that has, apparently, existed on overseas VHS copies or some cable airings. We did our homework on this one.
