In one of the longest delays of all time, Scream Factory recently announced they will be bringing the long-shelved found-footage classic The Poughkeepsie Tapes to Blu-ray on October 10, 2017! Extras include the trailer and new interviews with the filmmakers and cast.
While the film had found a VOD release through DirecTV three years ago, this marks the first official release for the pic that introduced the world to John Erick Dowdle and his brother Drew, the duo who went on to direct M. Night Shyamalan’s Devil, Quarantine and even the criminally underrated As Above, So Below.
Bloody Disgusting was the first ever media outlet to review the film prior to its Tribeca Film Festival premiere back in 2007.
In it, “Hundreds of videotapes of torture, murder, and dismemberment show a killer’s decade-long reign of terror.“
In years past we had been told that MGM, who was to originally distribute the film theatrically, wanted to recoup their $2M marketing spend resulting in it being shelved.
