Slasher classic The Slayer hits 4K Blu-ray this August via Arrow Video

Nice! THE SLAYER

I am REALLY looking forward to checking this lesser-known slasher flick out. I haven't had the chance to see it yet, but it has come highly recommended to me from quite a few of my most-trusted horror flick confidants.

That said, I don't know much about the film and or if it is a classic as they say, but I can tell you that Arrow Video is going to be pulling out all the stops and rolling out a jam-packed new 4K transfer!

THE SLAYER rundown via Arrow Video:

IS IT A NIGHTMARE? OR IS IT… THE SLAYER?

One of the most sought-after titles for slasher fans everywhere, The Slayer finally rises from the ashes of obscurity in a brand new 4K transfer courtesy of Arrow Video.

Previously only available on home video in truncated or full screen versions, The Slayer – whose nightmares-seeping-into-reality theme predates a certain Wes Craven classic by several years – comes lovingly restored from the original negative in a stunning transfer that will be a revelation to fans both old and new.

THE SLAYER Special Features:

• Brand new restoration from a 4K scan of the original negative 

• High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations

• Original Uncompressed Mono Audio 

• Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing

• Brand new interviews with cast and crew 

• Original Theatrical Trailer 

• Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Justin Osbourn

FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Collector’s booklet featuring new liner notes by writer Lee Gambin

THE SLAYER synopsis:

Two young couples set off to a secluded island for what promises to be a restful retreat. But the peace is short-lived: as a storm batters the island, troubled artist Kay begins to sense that a malevolent presence is here with them, stalking them at every turn. Is she losing her mind, or are her childhood nightmares of a demonic assailant coming to terrifying life?


THE SLAYER is set to hit both the US and the UK on Blu-ray & DVD August 21st & 22nd.
