When you think of classics of the slasher subgenre, you’re guaranteed to think of the golden age era in which they thrived: HALLOWEEN, BLACK CHRISTMAS, MANIAC, THE BURNING, etc. But what about the more obscure titles that maybe aren’t as great, but should rank right amongst the aforementioned? Films like INTRUDER, SLAUGHTER HIGH, and maybe the grandaddy of them all: CURTAINS!
Canada’s mostly unseen (apart from voracious viewers) tax shelter slasher is dripping with atmosphere, inventive kills, and created a memorable icon in the hag-masked killer. Now, 30 years after its’ release, Synapse Films is bringing CURTAINS to Blu-ray & DVD! Mastered in 2K from the original negative, CURTAINS comes packed with brand new bonus features and a 5.1 surround remix (as well as the original mono for purists sake)!
Read on below, and watch for CURTAINS to open July 8th!
- The Ultimate Nightmare: The Making of CURTAINS Retrospective
- Audio Commentary with Stars Lesleh Donaldson and Lynne Griffin
