88 Films Brings Slasher Flick 'Frightmare' to (UK) Blu-Ray With Exclusive Slipcase

88 Films just added another title to their slasher classics collection line, that being director Norman Thaddeus Vane 1983 horror gem Frightmare. The UK Blu-Ray will be available everywhere on September 10th, 2018. Head on down to check out the awesome cover artwork in full detail, including a direct pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

You can only get the limited to 300 slipcase edition directly through the company’s official website right here, so you better be quick.

Also known as The Horror Star, the 1983 cult creeper Frightmare offered audiences postmodern shocks long before Wes Craven gave us his game-changing Scream in 1996! An underrated and underseen gem, Frightmare tells of a celebration for a late, great horror star… only the actor in question might not be entirely dead and soon the participants at his supposed party are being picked off one by one! Highlighting a notable supporting performance Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator) and assured direction from Norman Thaddeus Vane (who also worked on the X-rated cult favourite Dracula Sucks), this is one of the most stylish and sublime of all the eighties slice and dice horror-pack and 88 Films is thrilled to present Frightmare as part of its Slasher Classics collection!

Drama students decide to pay tribute to their favorite horror star by stealing his body from his crypt for a farewell party. They fail to realize their violation of the tomb has triggered powerful black magic, and Conrad hasn’t taken his final bows yet.
