Kevin Connor's 'Motel Hell' Getting a Steelbook Blu-Ray from Scream Factory This October

Not only are we getting an epic steelbook release of Pumpkinhead from Scream Factory, but the company also announced that a limited edition steelbook Blu-Ray release of Kevin Connor‘s 1980 comedy horror Motell Hell is heading our way on October 13th, 2020. We have full special feature details listed below, along with the cool packaging artwork.

The folks at Scream Factory are preparing a new 4K scan of the film from the original negative. All bonus features from the prior Blu-ray release will be ported over as well.

It takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent’s fritters!

Synopsis: “You really are what you eat with Farmer Vincent’s smoked meat in this creepy horror yarn which “packs a punch that goes way beyond mere terror” (Boxoffice). Vincent’s popular products contain a special ingredient that the psychotic farmer and his sister would literally kill to keep a secret! Starring Rory Calhoun (Angel), Nancy Parsons (Porky’s), Nina Axelrod (Time Walker, Cobra) and John Ratzenberger (Cheers), and directed by Kevin Connor (From Beyond The Grave, At The Earth’s Core), this darkly funny flick “just might be your cup of meat” (L.A. Herald Examiner)!
