We’re so thrilled to be celebrating our 1-year anniversary today that we thought we’d treat you guys and reveal two cult favorites we have planned for Blu-ray releases before the end of this year: 1982’s THE BEAST WITHIN and 1986’s CRAWLSPACE! No details to provide at this time, but more will become clear on them in late summer.
The Beast Within
Directed by Philippe Mora
Starring Ronny Cox, Bibi Besch, Paul Clemens, Don Gordon, and R.G. Armstrong
Eli and Caroline MacCleary are on their honeymoon driving through the middle of nowhere in Mississippi when their car gets a flat. Leaving his wife with the car, Eli hikes off to find a tow truck. While he’s gone, a mysterious creature attacks and rapes Caroline. Upon returning, Eli rushes his wife to the hospital. Seventeen years pass. Caroline bore her rapist’s child and she and Eli have raised the boy, Michael, as their own. But now Michael is suffering some inexplicable health problems his doctor can’t explain. Whatever it is he’s got, it’s genetic.
Directed by David Schmoeller
Starring Klaus Kinski and Talia Balsam
Gunther seems like a conscientious landlord who looks out for his female tenants. What they don’t know is that he has a crawlspace from where he watches their every intimate move and plans their murders.
