The initiation DVDFor all you slasher fans out there, we have just received word that the wonderful folks over at Arrow Video, will be unleashing Larry Stewart’s 1984 slasher flick The Initiation onto UK DVD this August 5th via their ArrowDrome imprint.

Before I began writing for HM.ca many years ago, I thought I was pretty clued up on horror films, the fact of the matter is, I am still discovering lost and forgotten gems every single day, and I love it! The initiation is one, so I’ll be checking this one out as soon as I can. Let us know what you thought of it and if you’ll be adding this one to your collection?

From the Press Release:

Arrow Video is pleased to confirm that Larry Stewart’s coming-of-age slasher classic
“THE INITIATION” will be released on UK DVD on Monday August 5th, via their
ArrowDrome imprint.

Like any blossoming all-American gal, Kelly Fairchild (Daphne Zuniga) is looking
forward to her sorority initiation with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. And
she’s got every reason to be anxious considering the prank her Delta Ro Kai sorority
sisters have tasked her with – a late-night break-in of her father’s department store.

At first everything goes to plan, but once inside the labyrinthian mall, Kelly and her
fellow pledges finds themselves locked in, and they’re not alone…
Who is the stranger stalking Kelly and her randy teen friends through the department’s
stores shadowy corridors? And how is this unseen assailant connected with Kelly’s
terrible recurring nightmares of a man burning in agony….?

The special features on this ArrowDrome release include a reversible sleeve, the
theatrical trailer, and a collector’s booklet with writing on the film by Calum Waddell.
