One of my all-time favorite horror films, John Hough’s 1973 The Legend of Hell House, is getting a stunning HD Blu-ray treatment later this year, thanks to Shout Factory! In the legendary ghost film, “A team consisting of a physicist, his wife, a young female psychic and the only survivor of the previous visit are sent to the notorious Hell House to prove/disprove survival after death. Previous visitors have either been killed or gone mad, and it is up to the team to survive a full week in isolation, and solve the mystery of the Hell House.”
In addition to Hell House, Shout! also announced the summer release of Kevin Connor’s 1980 Motel Hell on Blu-ray.
Motel Hell will be getting the “Collector’s Edition” treatment with slipcover and the newly-designed artwork. In the film, “Farmer Vincent kidnaps unsuspecting travelers and is burying them in his garden. Unfortunately for his victims, they are not dead. He feeds his victims to prepare them for his roadside stand. His motto is: It takes all kinds of critters…to make Farmer Vincents fritters.”
Full specs and release details forthcoming.
