Default THE EVIL (Gus Trikonis, 1978) -- Scream Factory 9/18/18

Scream Factory have an HD upgrade of Gus Trikonis' THE EVIL (1978) on the way this September!

Quote:
**NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT**

The often-requested 70s haunted house film THE EVIL is finally coming to Blu-ray for the first time!

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 we’ll be doing a new high-definition film transfer taken from the only surviving archival print.

National street date is September 18th but if you pre-order directly from us we'll ship it out two weeks early! https://www.shoutfactory.com/product...roduct_id=6831

Why didn't they try and get Joanna Pettet to participate in the audio commentary for this release? That is a very big missed opportunity....

Has it been established that they haven't tried?

Not that I've heard, but she is very active on Facebook so it is not as if she is unreachable if they wanted to ask her.

You might want to revise and put a spoiler alert in your comment for those who have never seen this film before...

Oops! Couldn't remember if that was a spoiler or not, and as I'm crap at using those spoiler tags I deleted the post so as not to potentially spoil any of the fun for newbies to the film.

I was in touch with her quite frequently back in the days she agree to do the original DVD then last minute she declined and since then has pretty much declined any kind of interviews so you can't force people when they would rather not do these kind of things

Never heard of this one before but watched half the trailer on YouTube and it looks bad but fun. I'm in. I couldn't watch the entire trailer because it seemed to me it gives away the entire film...kinda like a Roger Ebert print review. Glad Scream is bringing a lot of these obscure ones out of the vaults.

I found this on YouTube and gave it a rewatch, and was pleased to rediscover what silly supernatural fun it was (it was also a pleasure to rediscover just how lovely Joanna Pettet, Mary Louise Weller, Lynne Moody and Cassie Yates were in 1978). I recalled an old issue of Cinefantastique reviewed this was able to find that issue among my collection with this insightful little gem: "Richard Prine, as an egotistical non-believer...still looks as though he buys his clothes at K-Mart". Perfect!
