The countdown to Halloween is on, and Terror Vision celebrates with a 13-week buffet of spooky new releases every Terror Tuesday.

Terror Vision

Summer may still be burning bright, but it’s never too early to get our spooky on.

Like the rest of us, Halloween is Terror Vision’s favorite time of the year. But it’s always a bummer when it’s over. Thus, many of us start celebrating as early as possible and make it last as long as possible. Terror Vision agrees, which is why the beloved genre distributor always begins celebrating the spooky season in September. But this year, that’s not good enough. So they’ve created #13WeeksOfHalloween.

Starting August 1st and running through October 31st, Terror Vision will be dropping titles every single Tuesday (#TerrorVisionTuesday). Expect exciting new releases ranging from the early 1900s to brand-new 2023 titles. Most of the releases will be horror or horror adjacent, and many of them are new to disc.

Terror Vision will be releasing a definitive triple LP edition of the score to THE MONSTER SQUAD, the score to RUMPLESTILTSKIN on cassette and LP, and, following their Blu-ray release of COPPERHEAD earlier this year, will be releasing the film on VHS… along with its recently-announced LP!

In addition, LINNEA QUIGLEY’S HORROR WORKOUT (1990) will finally be available on VHS and Blu-ray, with its outrageous score available on LP and cassette.

For fans of Polanski’s ROSEMARY’S BABY (1968), Terror Vision will be dropping the classic film’s score on cassette.

The distributor is also announcing their second UHD title with the release of 2023’s MALUM, which will simultaneously get a VHS release.

The Aussie cult hit CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY VANILLA (2014) will be making its U.S. Blu-ray debut with a new HD upgrade, along with plenty of extras, including the first season of DRAGON FORCE X!

Terror Vision is also releasing the Indonesian exploitation film ESCAPE FROM HELL HOLE (1983), restored in 2K from its original camera negative; the almost-lost-to-time SOV slasher SHRECK (1990) from veteran horror filmmakers Don Adams and Henry Picardi; and Tony Elwood’s long-forgotten 1990 slasher film KILLER!, restored in 2K from its original 8mm camera negative!

With #13WeeksOfHalloween, Terror Vision promises many surprises and an onslaught of titles for fans to choose from.

Here’s just a little taste of what else is being released this year:

  • 1911’s silent Italian classic DANTE’S INFERNO — from directors Francesco Bertolini, Adolfo Padovan, and Giuseppe de Liguoro — scanned in 4K from one of the world’s only remaining prints and featuring multiple scores to choose from
  • A brand new 4K scan from the only remaining print of Bill Leslie and Terry Lofton’s THE NAIL GUN MASSACRE (1985)
  • One of the most highly-requested horror releases of all time, Maurice Devereaux’s SLASHERS (2001), including multiple cuts of the film
  • A double dose of hicksploitation backwoods romps with ‘GATOR BAIT (1974) and ‘GATOR BAIT 2: CAJUN JUSTICE (1988)… both in HD
  • Another highly requested SOV title hits Terror Vision’s library with HOLLOW GATE (1988)
  • Numerous other titles from the infamous, and now-defunct, City Lights Entertainment will also be coming, all scanned from their original tape masters

Looking for even more SOV horror? Then get ready for the Danny Bonaduce-starring shot-on-video classic AMERICA’S DEADLIEST HOME VIDEO (1993), packed with a ton of killer extras! Plus, another highly-requested SOV film arrives at Terror Vision with Jon McBride’s WOODCHIPPER MASSACRE (1988).

But that’s not all! Get ready for: 

  • Indonesian wackiness with THE DEVIL’S SWORD (1984), from a 2K scan of the original camera negative
  • An all-new version of Beverly Sebastian’s ROCKTOBER BLOOD (1984), which has been frankensteined together from the film’s original master tapes
  • Fred Williamson-starring BLACK COBRA (1987) and BLACK COBRA 2 (1989) coming in HD for the first time
  • Japan’s first Giallo-inspired-horror film, Banmei Takahashi’s DOOR (1988), finally arriving in the U.S. with a stunning new restoration
  • The Kevin Coster-starring erotic thriller SHADOWS RUN BLACK (1984) making its Blu-ray debut, alongside a number of rare Italian titles, including Renato Savino’s THE CHILDREN OF VIOLENT ROME (1976) and Antonio Margheriti’s TIGER JOE (1982) and TORNADO (1983).
  • Plus Jeff Leroy’s HELL’S HIGHWAY (2002), Clay Westervelt’s Jim Wynorski documentary POPATOPOLIS (2009), and Alex Orr’s BLOOD CAR (2007) starring Anna Chlumsky

Terror Vision has recently made deals with Paramount, MGM, and numerous other studios, guaranteeing fans many great titles coming down the pipeline in 2023 and beyond.

Between Blu-rays, UHDs, VHS tapes, cassettes, and LPs, the distributor has over eighty releases scheduled throughout the rest of this calendar year — spanning classic films, kung fu box sets, Korean films, slashers, Italian films, more SOV craziness, and plenty more 70s, 80s, and 90s goodies!

For serious collectors of physical media, the distributor has again retained their popular Terror Vision Video Club, allowing fans to subscribe to Blu-ray/UHD releases in tiers of 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 titles. Subscription rates are ten titles for $225 ($22.50 per movie), 20 titles for $427 ($21.35 per movie), 30 titles for $630 ($21.00 per movie), 40 titles for $832 ($20.80 per movie), and 50 titles for $1000 ($20.00 per movie).

For fans who sign up for the popular 50-title option, all the above titles in this announcement will be included in that package and will be spread out over the following months.

Box sets are always part of the subscription, with certain sets qualifying as one, two, or three film releases.

Don’t fret; Terror Vision promises to be very fair with fans and never take advantage, noting that box sets will never be tabulated on a per-film basis (i.e., fans will always come out even or ahead on the number of films they receive).

Terror Vision also continues its successful cassette club and vinyl clubs this spooky season.

$200 lands subscribers the label’s next six vinyl releases, each of which contains a unique variant and is hand-numbered. $145 will secure subscribers the label’s next ten cassettes, all containing a special variant.

For those unfamiliar with the world of Terror Vision, the label is owned by Ryan Graveface. Founded in 2015 as an LP, cassette, and VHS distributor, Terror Vision expanded to Blu-ray releases in 2021 and, in early 2023, hired Brad Henderson (acquisitions/special features) and Justin Beahm (special features/editor).

Terror Vision began by focusing on releasing obscure movie soundtracks on vinyl and operating a physical store in Savannah, Georgia. With the expansion to their new home video venture, Terror Vision proved they would execute the same care and curation that remains paramount with their vinyl releases on to home video formats. As a result, they have delighted physical media collectors by regularly unearthing genre gems from decades past and giving contemporary oddities new life on physical media.

Since day one, Terror Vision has employed artist and layout extraordinaire Earl Kess, whose handiwork can be found on every one of their releases.

In addition to owning Terror Vision, Ryan Graveface owns the oddities haven Graveface Museum, with locations in Chicago, IL, and Savannah, GA, as well as Graveface Records (including a record label and physical shop), Graveface Distribution, and the event space The Lodge of Sorrows.
