Arrow has finalized specs for another limited edition Blu-ray release, this time it's Blackenstein director William A. Levey's 1989 film Hellgate. Like Frogtown, Hellgate is also limited to just 1,000 copies. Those of you interested in picking this one up, put in your preorders now to lock in the £12.99 price. It'll probably jump up to £19.99 closer to the release date.
Random, completely unrelated fun fact: There's a Hellgate High School located in Missoula, MT.
Synopsis: BEYOND THE DARKNESS TERROR LIVES FOREVER
Legends abound of ‘The Hellgate Hitchhiker’. So the story goes, a beautiful young woman was once brutally defiled and murdered by a biker gang. Now, returned from the dead, she wanders the roadside luring unsuspecting motorists to their doom…
Refusing to heed the warnings of locals, a group of college friends set out on a cross-country road trip looking for fun and frolics. But they get much more than they bargained for when they wind up in the abandoned mining town of Hellgate and hemmed in by hordes of the undead!
Providing gore and gags in equal measure, Hellgate recalls the good old days of early 90s fright flicks and challenges other gleefully twisted flicks such as Re-animator and Return of the Living Dead for sheer grisly delirium!
