Empire Pictures Classic GHOST TOWN Gets the Scream Factory Bluray Treatment This July!

unnamed (5)The Good, The Bad, The Satanic.” When reading those words at the top of GHOST TOWN‘s VHS box as a kid, that line was all that it took for me to beg my father to let me rent it. Being the upstanding religious person he was, he said yes, and there I went, further down the Empire Pictures rabbit hole. Empire Pictures was such a huge part of my childhood (see Issues #4 and 7 of Delirium Magazine for proof of that), and writing this up right, I can’t help but to think of maybe some horror fans who didn’t get a chance to witness this Satanic cowboy tale as a kid/teenager, finally getting the chance to do so, with Scream Factory’s upcoming July 28th Bluray debut of the 1988 film.

A dusty ghost town, seemingly abandoned, holds the lives of its original inhabitants in an animated netherworld for 100 years…

When a modern-day sheriff’s deputy is lured to a desolate, spooky ghost town in search of a missing woman, he comes face-to-face with a malevolent spirit from the town’s past. The spell of death and suffering over the undead townspeople must end to set them free from eternal pain. The horrors of a possessed outlaw, in a time-suspended dimension are only the setting for a frightening battle for the mind, nerves and flesh.

GHOST TOWN stars Franc Luz (The Nest, When Harry Met Sally), Jimmie F. Skaggs (Oblivion, Puppetmaster), Catherine Hickland (Witchery) and Bruce Glover (Diamonds Are Forever, Chinatown, Walking Tall).

No info on special features have been announced yet, but when they are, you’ll be hearing about them!!!

Scream Factory sends you into GHOST TOWN on July 28th!
