RAPEY GHOSTS, EXPERIMENTAL PIRANHA, AND CLASSIC HAMMER HORROR ARE ON SCREAM FACTORY'S MENU THIS WEEK!
It's week's like this, that I wish I had way more expendable income! On June 11th (i.e. tomorrow!) Scream Factory is unleashing new Collector's Editions of THE ENTITY and FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN (both of which I really need to see), as well as a Limited Edition Steelbook of Joe Dante's PIRANHA, which comes with a new 4K transfer, Roger Corman commentary, and (if you order directly from Shout! Factory) an exclusive lithograph! Continue reading about this trio of new releases to get even more excited Vault Dwellers!
Synopsis: Oscar-nominee Barbara Hershey (the INSIDIOUS series, BLACK SWAN) stars as Carla Moran, a hard-working single mother whose life becomes a nightmare when she is attacked in her bedroom by someone – or something – that she cannot see. Disbelieved by her friends and dismissed by skeptical psychiatrists, Carla begins to lose her grip as she is repeatedly attacked in her car, in the bath, and even in front of her children. Could this be a case of hysteria, a manifestation of childhood sexual trauma, or something even more horrific? Seeking help from a group of daring parapsychologists, Carla will attempt an unthinkable experiment: to seduce, trap and ultimately capture the depraved spectral fury that is THE ENTITY.

FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN (1967 - COLLECTOR'S EDITION)
Synopsis: She's a vision of loveliness ... with a murderous mission from beyond the grave!
In this "most conceptually wild and outrightly science-fictional of the Hammer Frankenstein films" (Moria Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review), Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) and Dr. Hertz (Thorley Walters) are embarking upon an experiment to capture the souls of the dead and impose them into other bodies. When their assistant, Hans (Robert Morris), is unjustly accused of murdering his girlfriend Christina's father and is himself put to death, the two men claim his body and trap his soul in their laboratory. Meanwhile, Christina (Susan Denberg) is consumed with grief over the death of her beloved Hans and commits suicide.
Frankenstein and Dr. Hertz are able to transfer Hans' soul into Christina's healed body, which results in a vision of beauty. Their experiment appears successful until Frankenstein discovers that Christina's seductive appetites are being driven by the spirit of Hans and his passion for revenge ...
