The Devils Rain DVD Art and SpecsGoon
Rising up into the limelight of horror DVD distribution is Dark Sky Films. They have put together some fantastic DVDs so far including the Henry: 20th Anniversary Editon and the recently released TCM: Ultimate Edition. Now they have dug up an interesting film that I had no idea even existed, The Devils Rain.
Since I have never heard of the movie I have decided to include the synopsis here so you get an idea of what the film is about: Patriarch Steve Preston goes missing and worried mom Emma (Ida Lupino) sends eldest son Mark (William Shatner) in search for his father. Suddenly, a dying, eyeless Steve returns and demands that the family: “Give Corbis what belongs to him!” before dissolving into a gelatinous meltdown. Corbis (Ernest Borgnine) is a Satanic priest hell-bent on recovering a valuable book listing the names of those who sold their souls to the devil…a book that resides with the Preston family. Meanwhile, occult expert, Dr. Richards (Eddie Albert) and Mark’s younger brother, Tom (Tom Skerritt) plot to free the Prestons and destroy The Devil's Rain, a bottle containing the souls of those already damned.
The Devils Rain is going on the schedule for an October 31st release for approximately $14.98. The disc will be presented in an anamorphic widescreen transfer at its original 2.35:1 theatrical aspect ratio. Some of the special features include:
- Audio commentary with director Robert Fuest
- A newsreel featuring Anton LaVey, High Priest of the Church of Satan
- Theatrical trailers
- Radio spots
- Still gallery
