I’ve been keeping my eye on Scream Park ever since I found out about it on Kickstarter back in 2012. I had the pleasure of seeing the movie last year and found it to be a really entertaining low-budget indie horror flick that contained a lot of retro slasher fun (you can read my review of it here). Now, on April 22, Scream Park is invading home video via DVD and VOD and I recommend you check it out when it arrives. I’m not sure the cover art is the best representation of the movie as it doesn’t allude to the cool amusement park setting that the title does (this Scream Park poster is much better) but I think the quality of the movie speaks for itself. Fans of Doug Bradley (Pinhead in the Hellraiser movies) should be certain to check this out for his cameo role. You can pre-order Scream Park now.
Here’s the press release:
Cary Hill’s Retro Slasher Scream Park
Coming to DVD and VOD April 22nd
From Wild Eye Releasing
New York, NY – Wild Eye Releasing is excited to announce that Cary Hill’s Scream Park will be available nationwide on DVD and VOD April 22nd. Hailed by Doctor Carnage Reviews as “creepy” and “bringing to mind Black Christmas and John Carpenter’s Halloween“, Scream Park was a hit at horror festivals throughout 2013, slashing to audience acclaim at Texas Frightmare Weekend, the Eerie Horror Film Festival and Horror Realm.
The Fright Land amusement park is on the verge of closing its doors forever. But the park’s owner, Hyde (Doug Bradley, Hellraiser), has one last plan to sell more tickets…murder. Hiring two backwoods maniacs to break into the park and hack and slash all his employees, Hyde thinks these killings will create a media sensation, but he has just unleashed a horror that no one can survive.
The DVD release of Scream Park (SRP $14.95) will exclusively include a commentary with director Cary Hill, bloopers and trailers, available at major retailers nationwide including Best Buy and Walmart.
