MVD Entertainment Group Bestows "Rewind Collection" Status On Director Alan Stewart's Ghost Riders For DVD And Blu-ray Release On Feb. 8

MVD Entertainment Group looks to Feb. 08 for the release of the newest addition to its popular “Rewind Collection” line of DVD and Blu-ray products.

This would be none other than director Alan Stewart’s 1987 mixed-genre horror and Western tale, Ghost Riders.

It is 1886 on the dusty plains of Texas and Reverend Thadeous Sutton (played by actor-turned-stuntman Bill Shaw) is out for justice, frontier justice.   No need for a trial, Sutton and his lynch mob descend upon the local jail and haul desperado Frank Clements (Mike Ammons) and his associates out kicking and screaming and promptly hang them. 

The deed done and over with, this violent act of vengeance is soon forgotten by time.   That is until the present day when Clements and his gang are magically resurrected and plan on a little vengeance; some retribution of their own.

The action takes place in present-day Santa Rio, where Sutton’s descendent is a history professor by the name of Jim Sutton (also played by Shaw).   Jim’s son, Hampton (Jim Peters) and his friends, Tommy (Arland Bishop), Cory (Ricky Long) and Cory’s girlfriend, Pam (Cari Powell) — who secretly has the hots for Hampton — are out for a good time on the Sutton Ranch when they are confronted by Clements and his ghostly riders.

How do you stop the undead?  Bullets for the already dead have little effect.   Ghosts, phantoms … the undead are terrifying, but these killers are now very real once again and they are out for blood.   Who survives and who doesn’t, and what “magic” of their own can Hampton and his friends devise to send these outlaws back to the here-after … it all plays out on Feb. 08 with the “Rewind Collection” release of Ghost Riders on both DVD and Blu-ray.



Severin Films Unearths Uncut Version Of Director James C. Wasson's 1980 Horror Tale Night Of The Demon For Special Edition Blu-ray Debut On Feb. 22

Severin Films, with sales and distribution expertise provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has a new 2K film restoration (sourced from a newly discovered 35mm answer print) of director James C. Wasson’s controversial 1980 horror film, Night of the Demon, set for release as a double-disc Blu-ray special edition on Feb. 22.   

There will also be a single-disc DVD edition available on the same date.

You can toss out those coveted VHS copies that you’ve hung on to for the past decades … deeply held treasures to be sure.   You can even retire the 2011 DVD edition of Night of the Demon that you might have acquired along the way … this is the real deal and it only took something like 40 years to get here.

Back in 1979 Jim L. Ball wrote the script and acted as producer, he hired Wasson to direct his story about an anthropology professor by the name of Bill Nugent (Michael Cutt in his film debut — Volcano, Hider in the House), who is sought out by a young woman by the name of Carla (Shannon Cooper), who tells him a fantastic tale about her father being murdered by a Bigfoot creature.

Despite a series of unexplained killings, including that of two Girl Scouts, the local police remain skeptical that Bigfoot could be the culprit.   Bigfoot, seriously?

In any case, Nugent sees this as a perfect opportunity to take some of his students, along with Carla, into the spooky woods for a field trip.   Genre fans will immediately recognize this little group of six, including students Roy (Bob Collins), Pete (Michael Lang), Gary (Ray Jarris) and Linda (Jody or Jodi Lazarus), as the victim pool.  

They will journey into the woods, get a clue from a local by the name of Carlson (William F. Nugent) — who claims to have actually seen Bigfoot — which leads them to a crazed woman, Wanda (Melanie Graham), who lives in a cabin even deeper in the woods.   Once they arrive there, the slaughter begins.

At this point, Night of the Demon is a pretty straight forward victim pool horror film.   The producer, Jim L. Ball, was convinced that it was not marketable, so, as the story goes, he took over the production and filmed a series of flashback inserts that were very graphic to spruce things up.

The “new” version was considered so graphic by UK standards that it was banned.   Ball, likely short of production funds at this point, cuts a direct-to-VHS release, multiple versions from various companies will follow … that should be the end of Night of the Demon.   Into the dustbin of VHS history it goes, never to be heard from or seen again.

Wrong, it becomes a cult film!!

So, what has Severin Films assembled here?  For starters, this is the uncut, 96-minute version of the film … first time on Blu-ray. 

As to bonus goodies, the Blu-ray special edition (two-disc set), comes with Ball’s unseen 1964 feature film, Fraternity of Horror, two feature-length documentaries from David Gregory — Ban the Sadist Videos! and Ban the Sadist Videos, Part II! — and a whopping eight featurettes — “Just a Little Green Kid Outta Waco, Texas,” “The Demon Made Me Do It,” “Eye of the Demon,” “Cryptid Currency: Transgression Aggression in Bigfoot Cinema,” “Tales from the Cryptid,” “Deconstructing Patty,” “Mondo Bigfoot” and “My Nasty Memories.”
