The often-requested ’70s haunted house film The Evil is finally coming to Blu-ray for the first time from Scream Factory.
Synopsis: “A psychologist (Richard Crenna) and his wife (Joanna Pettet) buy a dilapidated historical mansion with a dark past in this terrifying chiller. Hoping to restore the estate and turn it into a drug rehabilitation clinic, he accepts the help of some of his students and current patients. But when a secret door in the basement of the house is opened, the malevolent presence within is unleashed, trapping everyone inside. One by one, they are picked off by the unspeakable terror that has awoken … and the doctor learns that even though his name is on the deed, the house belongs soul-ly to The Evil. Victor Buono, Andrew Prine, and Cassie Yates also star.”
Extras will be ported over from the prior DVD release. And Scream Factory will be doing a new high-definition film transfer taken from the only surviving archival print.
National street date for this one is September 18th but if you pre-order directly from Scream Factory they'll ship it out two weeks early.
