Final Details For The Blu-ray Release Of THE BURNING

Oh SCREAM FACTORY, how I love you so…

These SCREAM FACTORY releases have been nothing short of spectacular, I know I keep saying that but damn, talk about “must have” Blu-rays.
The next in the string is the always overlooked classic THE BURNING.

While we’ve know its release date for a while tonight I’ve got the final word from SCREAM FACTORY on exactly what will be on the disc, and it’s killer.

From the press release:

The BURNING Collector’s Edition Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack
Gather around the campfire to die!
A group of summer camp pranksters get the scare of their lives when they target the camp’s creepy caretaker…and he takes bloody revenge! “Gruesome” (The Hollywood Reporter) and “stomach-churning” (Boxoffice), this terrifying tale is “a brilliant slasher flick [and] gory as hell” (slasherpool.com)!

After a cruel joke goes awry, severely burning him and subjecting him to five years of intensive, unsuccessful skin graft treatments, Cropsy (Lou David) is back at camp…and ready to wreak havoc on those who scarred him! With his hedge clippers in hand, he terrorizes the camp and systematically mutilates each victim. Can a few courageous campers save themselves and destroy this demented madman before he kills them all?

Starring Brian Matthews (Crime Stopper), Leah Ayres (Bloodsport), Brian Backer (Fast Times At Ridgemont High), Larry Joshua (Dances With Wolves) and featuring early film appearances by Fisher Stevens (Short Circuit), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) and Holly Hunter (Raising Arizona), The Burning is a “grim and nasty movie [that] gets under your skin” (efilmcritic.com)!
