Yesterday Scream Factory announced that for the last Friday during October instead of releasing just two names they would give away three. So the three films that they plan to release are X-Ray, Schizoid and The Godsend. Now personally I have never seen any of these films but that could be because they have never been on DVD before.
In X-Ray, Divorcee Susan Jeremy goes to a local Los Angeles county hospital for a routine exam and through a series of circumstances finds herself stranded there while a maniac, dressed in a doctor’s surgical mask and clothing, goes around killing all the staff are assoicated with her. Could it be posibly the psycho Harold whom killed a friend of Susan’s on Valentine’s Day 19 years earlier? If so, who is it since Susan has not seen Harold for all that time and there’s no telling who he has grown up to look like.
Schizoid follows Julie an advice columnist for the city newspaper who begins to receive anonymous notes threatening murder and worse. At about the same time, female members of the group therapy session she attends are being stabbed, one by one, by an unknown assailant. Is there a connection? If so, why do the notes talk about murder with a gun, while the murder victims are being stabbed? At first, the police, her ex-husband, her therapist and her friends all assure her that the notes are probably unrelated, and hoax; but with time, it becomes apparent that someone close to her is responsible. Is it her therapist, Pieter, who has sex with his patients just before they are murdered? Or Pieter’s daughter, who resents Julie for Julie’s romantic involvement with Pieter? Is it Julie’s ex-husband, who never really wanted their divorce? Or maybe Gilbert, the eccentric building maintenance man whom many people believe is a little crazy anyway…
In The Godsend, an English family of six takes in a pregnant woman who disappears shortly after giving birth. They raise the baby girl as their own, but over the years the strange deaths of their children make them consider whether the little girl is more than she appears.
