Canuxploitation fans, rejoice! B.D. Benedikt’s Beyond the Seventh Door, will soon be unleashed onto DVD for the first time ever this October 31, 2017, via the fine folks over at Severin Films and Intervision Picture Corporation. The film will be made available worldwide and you can pre-order your copy HERE. Check out the details below.
From the Press Release:
This Halloween, Intervision Picture Corporation returns to the mysterious Great White North, this time to unearth one of the strangest artifacts of the late 1980’s. BEYOND THE 7TH DOOR is a beguiling puzzle film in the vein of DEATH TRAP or THE LAST OF SHEILA, but with far fewer resources and a vastly more eccentric team of filmmakers.
More than 30 years later, it remains one of the most ambitious, sought-after, and totally bizarre low-budget Canadian features of all: Yugoslavian-born actor Lazar Rockwood – in a notorious debut performance that still astounds Canuxploitation fans – is Boris, an ex-con and career thief who convinces his ex-girlfriend (Bonnie Beck) to help him rob her wealthy boss’ castle. But when Boris discovers that the eccentric millionaire has booby-trapped the building, they’ll have to survive six riddle-triggered rooms of homicidal mayhem in order to claim the treasure.
Writer/director (and future best-selling ‘religious thriller’ author) B.D. Benedikt made his unforgettable filmmaking debut with this bottom-shelf VHS classic, now loaded with Special Features produced exclusively for its worldwide DVD premiere.
