Severin announces two very anticipated blu-rays

Due out June 11th, Severin has finally given a street date for two of their most anticipated releases!  Both can be pre-ordered by clicking here.

 House on Straw Hill
Banned in Britain as a video nasty for thirty years!  A shockingly violent and reotic tale of seduction, brutality, and revenge.  Cult movie icon Udo Kier (MARK OF THE DEVIL, FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN) stars as a successful novelist suffering from writer's block, who rents a country cottage with his wife (British 70's sex sensation Fiona Richmond) in the hope of finding inspiration.  But the arrival of a sensual secretary, played by Linda Hayden (BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW, TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA) sets in motion a chain of events that culminate in an unrestrained explosion of sex and savagery.  Film elements were long thought lost or destroyed on this sleazy gem buyt the original camera negative was unearthed in a barn in rural England and painstakingly restored for this first official uncut release anywhere in the world.  Director commentary and cast and crew interviews will round out the package.


The House of Seven Corpses
"Eight graves!  Seven bodies!" screamed the ads, "One killer...And he's already dead!"  Hollywood legends John Ireland (RED RIVER, SATAN'S CHEERLEADERS), John Carradine (THE GRAPES OF WRATH, VAMPIRE HOOKERS) and Howard Hughes' paramour Faith Domergue (CULT OF THE COBRA, THIS ISLAND EARTH) star in this much-loved 70's shocker about a film crew shooting an occult drama in a sinister manor with it's own grisly history of family bloodshed.  Previously released with often badly cropped, censored, and muddy transfers, the film will finally be available in HD, transferred from the original vault materials and featuring an exclusive archive interview with legendary horror icon Carradine (a DVD/Blu-ray first as far as we're aware) and a revealing new audio commentary with co-prodcuer Gary Kent & film historian Lars Nilsen.
