Between September 2011 & March 2012 Scorpion Releasing will bring out a mix of sought-after first-time-on-DVD slashers and new re-releases of beloved titles: American Nightmare (1983), the grimey, sleaze-coated kin of Maniac and Nightmare, The Carpenter (1988) starring Wings Hauser as a spectral killer, The House on Sorority Row (1983), previously re-released in 2009 to coincide with the remake, the OOP atmospheric demonic slasher whodunnit Incubus (1982), Final Exam (1981), previously released by BCI, and the hulking killer on island opus Humongous (1982).
If you’ve processed all of that yet, continue below for the press release mentioning further (non-slasher) releases, and cover art for the hallowed six.
Scorpion Releasing proudly presents Katarina’s Nightmare Theater, a new line of horror DVDs hosted by actress, and former WWE and now TNA star, Katarina Leigh Waters, as she introduces a series of cult films, many of them for the first time on DVD! See the bewitching Katarina introduce such horror classics as THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW, FINAL EXAM, THE INCUBUS, some of them in new high definition film transfers with new extras!
Also, for the first time on DVD such films as the 80’s horror favorite HUMONGOUS, THE CARPENTER starring Wings Hauser (VICE SQUAD), THE HUMAN EXPERIMENTS starring Linda Haynes, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE with Michael Ironside, THE DEVIL WITHIN HER starring Joan Collins, the twin-terrors of THE MARK OF CAIN, and NOTHING BUT THE NIGHT starring genre greats Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing! Each DVD will have a play with or without Katarina’s intros and closing segments and some will have audio commentaries with the filmmakers moderated by Katarina. All the DVD sleeves will feature a reversible cover. The first wave will be released in September, just in time for Halloween and new DVDs coming each month through March!
“I am having really great fun hosting these movies, and coming up with skits for the introduction… plus I love that I get to meet these filmmakers and talk to them about their creative process on the audio commentaries… it’s inspiring! I hope you enjoy watching the DVD’s, as much as I enjoy working on them!” -Katarina Leigh Waters
