70s cult classics House on Straw Hill and House of Seven Corpses will hit Blu-ray in June

Severin Films have announced the long awaited June 11th Blu-ray + DVD combo US debut release of the controversial shocker HOUSE ON STRAW HILL and the creepy classic THE HOUSE OF SEVEN CORPSES. Good news on Good Friday!

HOUSE ON STRAW HILL, which was banned in Britain as a Video Nasty for thirty years, stars cult movie icon Udo Kier, Fiona Richmond, and Linda Hayden. The plot:

Kier stars as a successful novelist suffering from writer’s block, who rents a country cottage with his wife in the hope of finding inspiration. But the arrival of a sensual secretary sets in motion a chain of events that culminate in an unrestrained explosion of sex and savagery.

Film elements were long thought lost or destroyed on this sleazy gem but the original camera negative was unearthed in a barn in rural England and painstakingly restored for this first official uncut release anywhere in the world. Director commentary and cast and crew interviews will round out the package. Pre-order it right HERE.

HOUSE OF SEVEN CORPSES stars John Ireland, John Carradine and Faith Domergue. The film is about...

a film crew that unleashes vengeance-seeking spirit while shooting an occult drama in a sinister manor.

Previously released with often badly cropped, censored and muddy transfers, the film will finally be available in HD, transferred from original vault materials and featuring an exclusive archive interview with legendary horror icon Carradine (a DVD/Blu-Ray first as far as we’re aware) and a revealing new audio commentary with Co-Producer Gary Kent & Film Historian Lars Nilsen. Pre-order this one right HERE.
