Coming to DVD June 30 from Shriek Show, Byron Quisenberry’s SCREAM (1981 – AKA THE OUTING).
No one ever returns from this phantom town of TERROR! A group of friends on a rafting trip down a river stop in at an old ghost town to spend the night. Soon their rafts disappear, and then they begin to be eliminated one by one by a mysterious killer.
The film has a bad rep with slasher fans, but if you can deal with the slow-burning pace and gratuitous stunt-bikers you’ll find a subtly creepy slasher film with an seemingly omnipotent murder whose identity, origin and motivations aren’t spelled out explicitly, but rewards eagle-eyed viewers.
Code Red produced the disc’s contents, which included an Audio Commentary by director Quisenberry, said to explain the mystery of the killer, creepy dolls and ship painting. Plus: Theatrical Trailer and TV Spot.
