Now this is definitely a slasher great that warrants a proper Bluray release, and by George (who is George in the “by George” saying?), fans of this 1980 slasher fun-fest gets just that, with Scream Factory’s brand new Bluray release of the Emmett Alston-directed, Roz “Pinky Tuscadero” Kelly led slasher great, New Year’S Evil (Available today 2/24).
While a lot of slasher films from the era relied on a mystery-figure dispatching victims left and right, New Year’S Evil did the bold move of showing the film’s killer pretty soon, into the movie, with Kip Niven (Magnum Force) ‘s demented murdered using a voice-altering box to terrorize Diane Sullivan (Kelly), a popular host of a punk and new wave dance show and using disguises to get closer to her.

For the final week of February, horror fans have several fun cult classics getting a high definition upgrade this Tuesday, including New Year’s Evil from Scream Factory, Larry Cohen’s God Told Me To and the unforgettable Black Sunday from Mario Bava.

When Mario Bava's groundbreaking Black Sunday was introduced to the U.S. market, American International Pictures retooled the film for the release. In addition to being redubbed in English, the film was given a new musical score and re-edited.

The gang at Scream Factory are making it incredibly easy to choose Valentine’s Day gifts for your significant horror loving other, with the announcement of Five titles, all ranging from hilarious to frightening. Personally, I’m looking forward to all of the February releases and think it’s pretty awesome how all across the board the films are.
Making their Scream Factory Bluray double feature debut on February 10th is the one-two punch of both the Love At First Bite/Once Bitten double, but also, Vampire’S Kiss/High Spirits, two films that are a lot of fun on their own.
