Scream Factory has been on a roll this week with new announcements, and they have revealed yet another horror hocus-pocus offering to set loose this year. The 1978 infamous shocker The Manitou arrives on Blu-ray for the first time with a planned date of April 16th!
In the film starring Susan Strasberg, Tony Curtis and Michael Ansara...
"What surgeons thought to be a tumor growing on the neck of patient Karen Tandy is actually a fetus growing at an abnormally accelerated rate. But when Karen reaches out to former lover and phony psychic Harry Erskine, she discovers that she is possessed by the reincarnation of a 400-year-old Native American demon. Now with the help of a modern-day medicine man, Erskine must survive this ancient evil’s rampage of shocking violence and forever destroy the enraged beast known as The Manitou."
Produced and directed by William Girdler (Grizzly, Day of the Animals) from the best-selling novel by Graham Masterton., the film also stars Stella Stevens, Ann Sothern and Burgess Meredith.
Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date. Reverse cover sleeve will feature alternative art.
You can pre-order now from Scream Factory's website.
