Arrow Video To Release One Sick Steelbook Edition Of ‘The Burning’ On Blu-Ray!



Lucky fans of Tony Maylam’s The Burning are going to be in for a treat this coming October, and just in time for Halloween! Arrow Video are releasing a UK limited edition Blu-Ray of the film with lovely cover art packaging, which features a sexy red and black blood styled case. Just take a look at that sexy thing below along with some awesome special features!


“Of all the many slice-and-dice films that emerged in the early 80s, few remain as gruesomely effective as The Burning the notorious video nasty now finally unleashed on Blu-ray!

When an ill-advised prank misfires, summer camp caretaker Cropsy is committed to hospital with severe burns. Released after five years, hospital officials warn him not to blame the young campers who caused his hideous disfigurement. But no sooner is Cropsy back on the streets than he s headed back to camp with a rusty pair of shears in hand, determined to exact his bloody revenge…

With standout gore effects courtesy of FX legend Tom Savini, The Burning proved too shocking for UK censors upon its original video release. Now, fully uncut and in High Definition, The Burning is ready to reclaim its place as the ultimate summer camp nightmare.”
