Shock Till You Drop broke the first details on one of the most anticipated retro horror releases of 2017: the 1977 Canadian shocker, CATHY’S CURSE. Announced a few months ago, Severin Films will release a 2k restoration to Blu-ray and DVD on April 11th!
“Forget what you’ve seen in blurry bootlegs and crappy budget packs. This first- ever restoration of the depraved Canadian shocker is being hailed as the genre rediscovery of the year: In 1947, a young girl is roasted alive in a car accident. Thirty years later, her grown brother returns to their childhood home with his mentally unstable wife and sweet daughter Cathy. But when the dead aunt’s vengeful spirit possesses the child, it will unleash an unnerving nightmare of creepy mediums, demonic dolls, and plenty of sick ‘70s foul-mouthed moppet mayhem.”
The features are as follows:
- Director’s Cut
- Alternate U.S. Release Cut
- Tricks And Treats: An Interview with Director Eddy Matalon
- Cathy & Mum: Interview with Actress Randi Allen and Costume DesignerJoyce Allen
