Looks like another Chiller release is coming to Blu-ray from Scream Factory this October:
recent flick CHILLING VISIONS: 5 SENSES OF FEAR finds a home in our
'Factory' and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 10/22--right before
From the people that brought you Steve Niles’ Remains and Dead Souls comes a terrifying new anthology film based on the human senses…
SMELL – Directed by Nick Everhart. Left by his wife and stuck in a
dead-end job, Seth Kyle’s life is the definition of undesirable…until a
mysterious saleswoman shows up at his door offering him “a scent to die
for.” Armed with a new air of self-confidence and a never-ending barrage
of attention, Seth quickly learns that the smell of success comes with a
SIGHT – Directed by Miko Hughes (actor from Pet
Semetary). Unsatisfied with his own version of reality, an optometrist
develops a machine that can harness the visions of all of his patients.
In an attempt to show his favorite patient’s abusive boyfriend the error
of his ways, the doctor injects a series of viciously brutal images
into his mind, leading to a visceral bloodbath of reality and
TOUCH – Directed by Emily Hagins (My Sucky Teen
Romance). After a car accident leaves him stranded in the middle of
nowhere, a 12-year-old blind boy stumbles into the stomping grounds of a
sadistic serial killer. Using his memory and strong sense of touch, he
must navigate through the unfamiliar territory as the killer quickly
TASTE – Directed by Eric England. A street-smart
hacker is brought in for a job interview with a mysterious corporation.
He soon learns that the company is led by a man-eater who has impeccable
taste…and doesn’t take “no” for an answer.
HEARING – Directed
by Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton (YellowBrickRoad). While researching an
urban legend about a song that’s long been thought lost, a group of
friends piece together all the existing recordings of it, bringing it
back to life for the first time in decades. Before long, they discover
the bone-chilling truth of what happens to anyone who listens to it and
why it was buried for so long.
There's one thing that really caught my attention with this announcement - one of the shorts is directed by Miko Hughes from Kindergarten Cop, aka "Boys have a penis, girl's have a vagina" kid. Or, since I mostly cover horror here, I should say Gage Creed from Pet Sematary, or Dylan from New Nightmare. That's fantastic news because I honestly kind of thought Miko might've been dead. Glad to see that he is in fact not dead, I'm very curious to see his directorial debut.
Much like with their release of Dead Souls, the Scream Factory Facebook Fans are not pleased with the announcement of this release. Is it just me or has most of the world become a bunch of goddamn whiners? Not to be a kiss ass, but Scream has been putting out mostly excellent releases of some popular older horror films that other companies don't give a shit about, and they announce a couple newer titles that fans on their Facebook page or on forums don't approve of and everybody turns into a bunch of entitled assholes.
You know what I do if a company releases a movie I'm not interested in? I don't buy it and hope the next title they release is something that interests me. That's all you can do, why cry and be a dick about it? Not every title a company releases is going to make everyone happy, just buy what you like. I'm not a big fan of the Chiller stuff, but Scream made some kind of deal with them to release their movies for whatever reason, so we're getting a couple of them. No big deal, nobody is going to die if a company they like releases a couple of duds. Plus, look at their upcoming slate of releases; Day of the Dead, The Amityville Trilogy, and an entire box set of Vincent Price films, just to name a few - I'm okay with a couple of Chiller titles sneaking their way into the lineup.
