Scorpio Releasing Unleashes Mortuary Onto DVD

Chris Savage

Yes friends, the day has finally arrived, Howard Avedis’ Mortuary is finally receiving the transition from VHS to DVD and hopefully the transition will keep the badass artwork of the original ’83 release.

Scorpio Releasing are no strangers when it comes to obscure VHS titles, and I think its safe to say that they will treat this one with the¬†up-most¬†respect. Check out the DVD details below and go revisit an ’80’s lost classic.

From the Press Release:

On May 15th, Scorpion Releasing, in conjunction with Camelot Entertainment, presents MORTUARY! Bill Paxton, Christopher George, and Lynda Day George star in this chilling tale of horror-filled nightmares that comes startlingly close to reality! Christie Parson (Mary McDonough) has been having terrifying nightmares ever since her father drowned in the family swimming pool. She knows his death was not an accident, but no one believes her. That is, until her boyfriend Greg (David Wallace) sees a hooded figure, identical to the one that Christie has described as being in her nightmares, in the town’s mortuary. But is it real, or is it all in Christie’s mind?”

Special Features include:

  • Play with or without the “Nightmare Theater” experience
  • Brand New 16×9 (1.78:1) HD master from the original InterNegative
  • On camera interview with composer John Cacavas
  • Original Trailer
  • Reversible sleeve with and without the banner

        I pre-ordered this a couple of a days ago. It comes with the original poster art as the cover. All the Scorpion Releasing DVDs do!
