If you’re anything like me you spend a lot of time, some would say entirely too much time, on various Facebook groups and internet message board discussing horror films on Blu-ray. A lot of these discussions center around what films aren’t on Blu-ray that we collectors desperately want. One that often comes up is 1981’s Ghost Story. The film was directed by John “Raw Deal” Irvin and features quite the cast including the likes of Fred Astaire and John Houseman. On November 24th, 2015 those discussions will come to an end because Scream Factory is going to bring us all the Blu-ray debut of Ghost Story! Blu-ray collectors rejoice!
In a peaceful New England town, the four lifelong friends who make up the Chowder Society come together each week to regale each other with tales of terror. But when one of the elderly gentlemen experiences a family tragedy, it becomes apparent that a buried secret from their youth has arisen to remind them of the sins of their past. Soon, they will learn they have never been forgiven… and a supernatural vengeance awaits them all. Craig Wasson, Patricia Neal, and Alice Krige also star in this chilling and atmospheric telling of one of horror’s greatest stories.
