Scream Factory have been doing a lot to please slasher fans for a good while now, and this news should make you even happier if you happen to be a fan of the cult classic “The Final Terror”. After being nearly forgotten, this flick that assisted in putting a young Daryl Hannah on the map is coming to Blu-ray and DVD for the first time ever, along with a ton of special features (which is something SHOUT! Factory do very well in general).
For those unfamiliar, here is a glimpse at the plot you can expect to see, as well as some special features that will be hosted on the disc:
A group of young campers out for what they hope will be a fun-filled weekend find their plans spoiled by a disguised, merciless killer who stalks the forest in search of new victims. Soon they are caught in a terrifying web of bloodshed and murder. It is up to the remaining few to defend themselves and put an end to the terror-filled weekend.
- Interviews with actors Adrian Zmed and Lewis Smith, post production supervisor Allan Holzman and composer Susan Justin
- Audio commentary with director Andrew Davis
- Theatrical Trailer
