Here are some of the horror DVD/Blu-Ray releases for May 18th!
A lovely blind and deaf teen reaches for a plate she just put on the counter. It’s gone. She reaches again…and it’s back in its original place. Someone is playing a cruel game with her. That someone is the serial killer terrorizing Miami in this terrifying thriller from the production company behind the original Friday The 13th and the director of Shock Waves. Making memorable movie debuts are Jennifer Jason Leigh (Single White Female, Annihilation, Possessor) as that endangered but not helpless girl and Lauren Tewes (The Love Boat) as her TV newscaster sister, whose investigation inadvertently leads the killer (John DiSanti, The Relic) to her home. With a final sequence that will leave you breathless, this Stranger delivers face-to-face fear as few other films can.
Now you see him. Now you don’t. The face of a killer appears out of the darkness and just as quickly disappears. A young woman has an eerie feeling someone is stalking her. Another beauty steps into a shower…and a bathroom door handle slowly turns. We’re in slasher-flick territory—and also in a rare realm of film history, because screen icon Tom Hanks makes his movie debut in this shocker. The up-and-coming legend plays the brief supporting role of Elliot, a psych major whose musings about the nature of fear reinforce the tone of this twisted tale about a sicko who targets brides-to-be…and a detective who scrambles to stop the carnage. Wedded bliss can be very short-lived when He Knows You’re Alone.

Christopher George (PIECES), Andrew Prine (BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD) and Richard Jaeckel (THE DARK) star in this ”bloody, sexy and immortal trash classic” (Mondo Digital) about an 18-foot-tall ursus arctos horribilis on a carnivorous rampage through a state park full of campers, and the ranger, chopper pilot and naturalist who must stop it.
