Severin Films unleashes Bloody Birthday, The Baby and Bloody Moon on Blu-ray

Jun. 6, 2014by: Eric Walkuski

Three obscure thrillers are heading to Blu-ray for the first time courtesy of Severin Films, which alongside Scream Factory continues to provide genre fans with insane 70s and 80s horror trash classics in high-def.

This July, Severin is bringing us Ed Hunt's BLOODY BIRTHDAY, Ted Post's THE BABY, and Jess Franco's BLOODY MOON. THE BABY is an absolute must; deranged and twisted - not to mention rather hilarious - you should step into this one not knowing a thing about it. BLOODY BIRTHDAY is also quite twisted, but it's a slightly more standard tale of murderous children on the loose in a small town. BLOODY MOON, I confess, I've not yet seen.

Here are the details:

THE BABY:

An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, 70s fashions and sick love. The result remains one of the most disturbing movies in Hollywood history: Anjanette Comer (The Loved One) stars as an idealistic L.A. County social worker who investigates the case of Mrs. Wadsworth (former 50s starlet Ruth Roman of Strangers On A Train fame), her two buxom daughters, and son Baby, a mentally-disabled man who sleeps in a crib, eats in a high-chair, crawls, bawls and wears diapers. But what secrets of unnatural attachment and sexual obsession are all of these women hiding? Marianna Hill (The Godfather Part II) and Michael Pataki (Grave Of The Vampire) co-star in this psychotic stunner from director Ted Post (Magnum Force, Beneath The Planet Of The Apes), restored from the original film negative for the first time ever on Blu-Ray.

Special features include:
-Audio Interview with Director Ted Post
-Audio Interview with Star David Mooney
-Theatrical Trailer

Pre-order right HERE.

BLOODY BIRTHDAY:

Get ready for the rarely seen slasher classic from the 80s that may also be the most disturbing killer kids movies in grindhouse history: Three babies are simultaneously born in the same hospital at the peak of a full solar eclipse. Ten years later, these adorable youngsters suddenly begin a kiddie killing spree of stranglings, shootings, stabbings, beatings and beyond. Can the town's grown-ups stop these pint-sized serial killers before their blood-soaked birthday bash? K.C. Martel (E.T., Growing Pains), Joe Penny (Jake And The Fat Man), Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja), screen legends Susan Strasberg and José Ferrer, and MTV vixen Julie Brown whose nude bedroom dance remains a landmark of celebrity skin star in this still-controversial shocker from director Ed Hunt (The Brain, Diary Of A Sinner), featuring an HD transfer from the original vault elements.

Special Features:
- Audio Interview with Director Ed Hunt
- Don't Eat The Cake! Interview With Star Lori Lethin
- A Brief History Of Slasher Films Featurette

Pre-order right HERE.

BLOODY MOON:

As the body-count genre stabbed its way into audiences hearts in the early 80s, EuroTrash auteur Jess Franco (Sadomania, Mansion Of The Living Dead) was asked to create his own saga of slaughtered schoolgirls complete with gratuitous nudity, graphic violence, and gory set pieces. But just when you thought you'd seen it all, Franco shocked the world by delivering surprising style, genuine suspense and a cavalcade of depravity that includes incest, voyeurism and roller disco. The luscious Olivia Pascal of Vanessa fame stars in this twisted thriller that was banned in England yet is now presented uncut and uncensored including the complete stone mill power saw sequence -for the first time ever on Blu-ray!

Special Features:
- Franco Moon- Interview with Director Jess Franco
- Theatrical Trailer

Pre-order right HERE.

These bloody bastards hit Blu-ray on July 8th.
