Shout! Factory TV serves up serious chills this summer with all kinds of horror gems in the Summer of Fear collection. Cult hit titles Chopping Mall, Doppelganger, Ed and His Dead Mother, The Monster Club, The Stepfather and The Terror Within will premiere on the service July 1.
The Summer of Fear presents a terrifyingly talented cast of actors, including Vincent Price in The Monster Club, Drew Barrymore in Doppelganger, Steve Buscemi in Ed And His Dead Mother, Terry O’Quinn in The Stepfather, and, well, what Chopping Mall might lack in star-power it makes up for in adorable killer robots.
I highly recommend Chopping Mall, The Terror Within, and The Monster Club but all of these films are great choices! Read a short synopsis on all of the films below.
