Home Isolation Suspenser SAFE INSIDE gets new DVD/Blu-Ray Release

To celebrate his 25 th Year as a filmmaker, writer/director Jason Paul Collum is reissuing his
B+Boy™ Productions, LLC. catalog this summer through Allied Vaughn beginning with his 2017 spooky
house suspenser Safe Inside. The title will street on July 9, 2020 with SRP $9.98 (DVD) and $14.98
(Bluray). (See below for links.)

The film follows a troubled man recovering from a recent breakdown. Left alone one evening in the
home of his recently deceased mother, he begins to hear walls creak and sees shadows move. As the
fear escalates, he begins to believe something is inside with him, but friends wonder if it’s just his
psyche coming apart.

Starring Chris Harder (Extraordinary Measures), Brinke Stevens (The Slumber Party Massacre), Judith
O’Dea (Night of the Living Dead), Tina Ona Paukstelis (Aswang), Darcey Vanderhoef (Mega Scorpions)
and Karen Dilloo (Mark of the Devil 666), Safe Inside initially found a home with Tempe DVD after a
limited theatrical release. One year later, however, Tempe had closed its doors after 30 years and Safe
Inside was pulled from the market.

Reviewer Tori Danielle of said of Safe Inside, “The dreadful tone reached out and
grabbed me-consumed me… This one had me on the edge of my seat with my heart pounding.” Equally
positive was, citing, “It has enough twists and turns to keep you all in, and I doubt you’ll
see the ending coming.”

The story was emotional for director Collum to tell. “I tend to develop characters from personal
experiences,” he confesses. “I’ve had many bouts with depression over the years, so much of the inner
stresses and nervousness shown by lead character J.J. (Harder) were from my own battles.” The story
also had an extremely painful true-life moment. “My Aunt, Roberta Vanderhoef, passed away from
cancer just months before I wrote the script. The conversation between J.J. and his mother Crystal Lake
(O’Dea) on her deathbed is one I’d had with my aunt in her final days. Filming it was both painful and
cleansing for me. I had to leave the room after their final conversation.”

In a positive true-life twist, Collum also based the horror story on his actual house and filmed the movie
there because it’s an oddity. “The house was built in 1900 and remodeled so many times it has bizarre
nooks and crannies everywhere. Cupboards hide old windows, there are rooms and closets hidden
within those old wood paneling walls from the 1960s, crawlspaces… Even after 15 years, I just
discovered new electric outlets a few weeks ago. It never ends! And for a creepy true event, the farmer
who built the home had his casket placed in the dining room for his funeral viewing. Strange things have
happened here on occasion, so, just I’m just saying…. Maybe someday I’ll welcome curiosity seekers to
check it out.”

This reissue comes with all-new poster art by Milwaukee artist Eric Arsnow on a double-sided wrap
(excluding Amazon), a photo gallery, commentary with Collum and editor Derrick Carey, two featurettes:
Are We Safe Inside and We Are Safe Inside, a behind-the-scenes reel, and a trailer gallery featuring eight
of Collum’s films. Audio options include 2.0 Stereo Mix or 5.1 Surround Sound plus subtitles.

Collum titles will follow on discs including Mark of the Devil 666 (just out on July 7), Screaming in High
Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era (August 18), October Moon 15 th Anniversary double-
feature set (September 1 st ) and a near-complete collection of Collum’s films in the box set Jason Paul
Collum’s Unlucky 13 (also September 1 st ).
