Justin M. Seaman’s The Barn is by far one of my favorite films. It's the perfect throwback film that has all the best elements that I love in horror. Practical effects, menacing villains, a killer soundtrack and best of all, it takes place on Halloween! I highly recommend that you see this film! Especially now that it's receiving a Blu-ray release that is packed full of special features and stunning reversible artwork from artist Graham Humphreys. The other side of the sleeve will feature the original artwork from Sadist Art Designs. Make sure to check out the cover art and Blu-ray details below! I've also posted the trailer for good measure. Seek this one out! You won't regret it!

The Barn Blu-ray Official Synopsis: You can now bring home the critically acclaimed and multiple award winning indie Halloween horror hit The Barn on Blu-ray for $19.99 at thebarnmerch.com!
It’s Halloween 1989, and best friends Sam and Josh are just trying to enjoy their last “Devil’s Night” before graduating high school. Trouble soon arises when the two pals and a group of friends take a detour on their way to a rock concert, finding an old abandoned barn and awakening the evil inside. Now it’s up to Sam and Josh to find a way to protect their friends and defeat the creatures that lurk within The Barn…
The film stars Mitchell Musolino, Will Stout, Lexi Dripps, Cortland Woodard, Nikki Darling, and Nickolaus Joshua with Linnea Quigley (Night of the Demons, Return of the Living Dead) and Ari Lehman (the first Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th). Featuring an original score by Rocky Gray, former member of Grammy award-winning goth/rock group Evanescence.
This Special Edition Blu-ray is a jam-packed trick-or-treat bag full of over 90 minutes of bonus goodies. It also includes a reversible insert sleeve featuring the classic Sadist Art Designs artwork on one side and a brand new design by the legendary film poster illustrator Graham Humphreys on the other showcasing iconic scenes from the film.
“I’ve always been huge fan of Graham Humphreys’ artwork, so I was shocked when I heard he attended the film’s London premier at “World Wide Weird” and enjoyed The Barn so much that he wanted to create an original piece. I got in contact with him and told him I was looking to do some new art for the Blu-ray release, but this time I wanted to show scenes from the film and incorporate the cast. There is a bonus feature on the disc that includes audience reactions created by filmmaker Emma Dark from the London show, and Graham is one of them. During this filmed interview is when he actually suggests that I reach out to him about it, so it’s pretty cool to watch that and then pick up the Blu-ray cover and see that it actually happened,” said writer/director Justin M. Seaman.
“THE MAKING OF A NIGHTMARE” is nearly an hour-long documentary that tells the story of how the film began as a childhood dream and what it took for a group of dedicated individuals to create the finished project. Including interviews from the cast and crew as well as Linnea Quigley, Ari Lehman, and Rocky Gray.
