The 1989 horror film is headed for Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Vinegar Syndrome is working on 'Witchtrap' for Blu-ray sometime in March.
For years, the Lauder House has been plagued by strange and violent occurrences. Unexplained deaths and seemingly supernatural activities have scared away all prospective tenants and buyers, but now its owners have decided to turn the old mansion into a bed and breakfast. Follow a team of paranormal experts as they attempt to remove the demonic forces and cleanse the property of all evil, through the use of a special device designed to lure in and trap evil spirits. But as soon as they arrive the violence begins again, as members of the team begin to meet increasingly bloody fates…
Director Kevin Tenney's (NIGHT OF THE DEMONS) WITCHTRAP is a gleefully gory and over the top late 80s supernatural shocker. Starring James Quinn (WITCHBOARD) and featuring scream queen Linnea Quigley in the film's most memorable and creative death scene, Vinegar Syndrome is proud to bring this outrageous cult classic to Blu-ray, totally uncut, with its long censored gore fully intact, and in a brand new Director and Cinematographer approved restoration, for the first time anywhere in the world!
The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature a transfer that was newly scanned and restored in 2k from the 25mm interpositive and supplements include: Group commentary track with: Director Kevin Tenney, Producer Dan Duncan, Cinematographer Tom Jewett and Actor Hal Havins; Video interviews with: Director Kevin Tenney, Actress Linnea Quigley, Cinematographer Tom Jewett and SFX Supervisor Tassilo Baur; Audio interviews with: SFX Makeup Artist Judy Yonemoto and Music Composer Dennis Michael Tenney; Original video trailer; "Book of Joe" a short film Directed by Kevin Tenney; Alternate ending for "Book of Joe"; Production/Promotional still gallery; Original cover artwork by Corey Wolfe; and Reversible cover artwork.
