Over the last few years we’ve seen a lot of stories about ghosts attacking people. Each week the Travel Channel has a dozen series about these attacks. But in 1981, people didn’t think of ghosts doing anything more than moaning and groaning. The Entity changed all that as Barbara Hershey (Beaches) gets physically attacked by her ghostly stalker. The film quickly became one of the “you gotta see it” based on real-life scary movies like The Exorcist and The Amityville Horror. Now it’s coming to special edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory on June 11. Barbara Hershey even sits down and talks about having to act like you’re being attacked by a ghost. Here’s the press release with Scream Factory with details of all the bonus features:
SCREAM FACTORY™ PRESENTS
Starring Barbara Hershey
HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED THRILLER CULT CLASSIC ARRIVES ON BLU-RAY™
JUNE 11, 2019 FROM SCREAM FACTORY™
Carla Moran, a hard-working single mother whose life becomes a nightmare when she is attacked in her bedroom by someone – or something – that she cannot see. Disbelieved by her friends and dismissed by skeptical psychiatrists, Carla begins to lose her grip as she is repeatedly attacked in her car, in the bath, and even in front of her children. Could this be a case of hysteria, a manifestation of childhood sexual trauma, or something even more horrific? Seeking help from a group of daring parapsychologists, Carla will attempt an unthinkable experiment: to seduce, trap and ultimately capture the depraved spectral fury that is The Entity. On June 11, 2019, SCREAM FACTORY is thrilled to present THE ENTITY Collector’s Edition Blu-ray. Directed by Sidney J. Furie (Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, Iron Eagle) and based on a novel by Frank De Felitta (Audrey Rose, Scissors), this fantasy thriller cult classic stars Oscar®-nominee Barbara Hershey (Insidious, Black Swan, The Portrait of a Lady). Ron Silver (The West Wing, The Arrival), David Labiosa (Bullet Proof, Walker, Texas Ranger), and George Cole (Archer, Wilfred) also co-star in the movie. A must-have for movie collectors and horror enthusiasts, this definitive collector’s edition Blu-ray release contains special bonus content, including new interviews, audio commentary and more!
