Scream Factory Unleashes April Terror With #HORROR and DESTROYER & EDGE OF SANITY Blu’s!!

pic1The gang at Scream Factory has quite the roster up their sleeves, and three of the releases they have planned sound quite interesting. On April 5th, SF, in conjunction with IFC Midnight, will release the cyber-bullying gone wrong tale #HORROR, featuring Chloë Sevigny and Timothy Hutton. Personally, I get excited for the SF/IFC joint releases, with previous films like DARK SUMMER and THE BABADOOK being some of my recent favorite genre films.

In #Horror, Chloë Sevigny (American Horror Story, American Psycho) leads an ensemble cast that includes Timothy Hutton (American Crime, The Dark Half) and Natasha Lyonne and Taryn Manning of Orange is the New Black. This shocking chiller is written and directed by actress and designer Tara Subkoff (The Cell, The Last Days of Disco).

 

SF1Arriving a week later, on April 12th, the double feature insanity (literally) hits,  with a 1-2 punch of Anthony Perkins in both DESTROYER & EDGE OF SANITY in one Bluray set.

A massive fan of both films, I can personally vouch for these gems, they’re great, showing how Perkins was much much more than just Norman Bates!
