Scream Factory rekindles your obsession for THE CRUSH this June!


ON JUNE 21ST, SCREAM FACTORY REMINDS US THAT A CRUSH CAN BE KILLER, WITH THE BLU-RAY DEBUT OF ALAN SHAPIRO'S "THE CRUSH!"

Though I am a bit surprised that this film is now part of the growing Scream Factory catalog, I am definitely eager to revisit it. I myself had a crush on Alicia Silverstone back in the day!

Film Synopsis: A man who should know better. A much younger teenager. No way should there be any kind of romance between them. Yet from the moment 14-year-old Adrian met Nick, she was crazy about him. There must be something she can say or do. Some way she can show him this is not just a crush. What can she do? What won't she do?

A captivating tale of obsession and revenge, THE CRUSH stars Cary Elwes and Alicia Silverstone in her breakthrough role. When Nick (Elwes) moves into a garage apartment in a picturesque suburb, his landlady's daughter (Silverstone) takes more than a passing interest in him. Her infatuation turns violent when he rejects her, and she sets out to ruin him, his work and his girlfriend. If she can't have him, no one will.

Romantic obsession has harrowing consequences in ‘90s cult-classic, suspense thriller THE CRUSH, written and directed by Alan Shapiro (FLIPPER , TV’s The Outsiders) and starring Cary Elwes (SAW, THE PRINCESS BRIDE, TWISTER), Alicia Silverstone (CLUELESS, BATMAN & ROBIN), Jennifer Rubin (BAD DREAMS, SCREAMERS) and Kurtwood Smith (TV’s Agent Carter, That ‘70s Show, ROBOCOP).

Disc Specs:
Color | Rated R | 89 minutes | Region A
Video - 1080p Widescreen (1.85:1)
Audio - ?

Extras:
  • NEW Audio Commentary With Writer/Director Alan Shapiro.
  • NEW The Doting Father – An Interview With Kurtwood Smith.
  • NEW Stung By Love – An Interview With Actress Jennifer Rubin.
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • TV Spot
You can order THE CRUSH now from AMAZON.COM or directly from SHOUT! FACTORY, which will net you your CRUSH Blu-ray a full two weeks early!  The disc isn't hitting stores until June 21st, so you do have a little time to mull this decision over. But choose wisely, and beware of blonde lolitas from Aerosmith music videos!

FENDER BENDER coming to Chiller TV this Summer!


SCREAM FACTORY'S "FENDER BENDER" MAKES ITS WORLD PREMIERE ON CHILLER TV IN JUNE!

It's been a while since I've had any news on this production, so imagine my surprise when I learned that the movie was completed and coming to television this Summer!

About the Film: In a small New Mexico town, a 17-year-old high school girl who just got her driver's license gets into her first fender bender, innocently exchanging her personal information with an apologetic stranger.

Later that stormy night, she is joined in her desolate suburban home by a couple of her school friends who try their best to make a night out of it, only to be visited by the stranger she so willingly handed all of her information to -- a terrifying and bizarre serial killer who stalks the country's endless miles of roads and streets with his old rusty car, hungrily searching for his next unsuspecting victim.

FENDER BENDER premieres Friday, June 3 at 9 PM ET on CHILLER TV. Written and Directed by Mark Pavia (STEPHEN KING'S THE NIGHT FLIER), the movie stars Makenzie Vega (THE GOOD WIFE), Dre Davis (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, SCAVENGER KILLERS), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville, Longmire) and Bill Sage (AMERICAN PSYCHO, WE ARE WHAT WE ARE). Evocative of the horror-thriller classics of yesteryear, FENDER BENDER brings you back to a time when the boxes on the shelf at your local video store beckoned you with masked, knife-wielding maniacs and a twisted sense of morals.

FENDER BENDER is developed and executive produced by Shout! Factory in association with Chiller. Follow the movie on social media for more updates, and be sure to watch the teaser trailer below!
