If candy rots your teeth, then prepare for Scream Factory to fill our eyes with HD cavities. They’ve already got us covered all month long in October, with deluxe editions of ARMY OF DARKNESS, TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT (and BORDELLO OF BLOOD if that’s your thing), but most excitingly THE LARRY FESSENDEN COLLECTION, which collects the indie horror titan’s best work.
What about after the greatest month of the year has passed and leaves us counting down the days until next All Hallow’s Eve? Fear not, Scream Factory has a slew of frights to keep us warm all Winter long, including some obscure chillers and a cult classic that’ll have you screaming “oh my goddddddddd!”: WHITE OF THE EYE, GHOST STORY, BLOOD AND LACE, and a double feature of TROLL and it’s infamous non-sequel, TROLL II!

She is sent to a home for children run by the enigmatic Mrs. Deere (Gloria Grahame, a 1952 Best Supporting Actress Academy Award® winner for her role in The Bad and The Beautiful), in spite of the concern that Ellie will be the newest target of her mother’s killer. But as terror strikes again and again, it becomes unclear who might be the bigger threat to Ellie’s life: the mysterious murderer with a hammer…or her sadistic new caretaker.
With borderline insane plot twists, and some unexpected performances by two faces familiar to fans of classic sitcoms – Vic Tayback (“Mel” from Alice) and Len Lesser (“Uncle Leo” from Seinfeld) – this little-known horror gem is a jolting, terror-filled thriller you’ve got to see to believe.
