Scream Factory Brings Us a Peter Collinson Double Feature on September 17th!

Scream Factory's Blu-ray cover for Peter Collinson's FRIGHT (1971).

Chalk up two more Scream Factory titles that I need to check out. FRIGHT's plot sounds suspiciously familiar, as it revolves around a babysitter under assault by an escaped mental patient (cough, HALLOWEEN, cough). As for STRAIGHT ON TILL MORNING, I was hoping that it was some sort of crazy Peter Pan-themed fright flick, but instead it seems like it's more of a bizarre love story between a young woman and a gigolo/serial killer. Either way, both films have garnered my interest, and I'd love to add them to my always growing Scream Factory collection. If you're as unfamiliar with these two movies as I am, continue reading to sate your curiosity!

FRIGHT (1971)

Synopsis: Teenage babysitter Amanda (Susan George - STRAW DOGS, TINTORERA) arrives at the Lloyd home to watch their young son for the evening. But it seems that the strangely nervous Mrs. Lloyd is hiding a shocking secret ... a secret that has just escaped from a nearby insane asylum and is now desperately trying to get inside the house. What must Amanda endure to survive the ultimate night of Fright?

This creepy film, directed by Peter Collinson (STRAIGHT ON TILL MORNING), also stars Honor Blackman (GOLDFINGER) and Ian Bannen (DOOMWATCH).
