Anchor Bay Warns You To “Watch With the Lights On”

by Rob Caprilozzi

A certain time of season slowly draws nigh. A season with a split personality. Children know it as a time for dressing up in funny costumes and obtaining candy in abundance. For some adults, a chance to indulge in safe flights of innocent tricks ‘n’ treats. But for some fans of the macabre, Halloween is more than an annual fall holiday. It’s a way of life…

Once again, let Anchor Bay Entertainment, the leading distributor in “horror-tainment,” help you celebrate All Hallow’s Eve with a collection of filmic terrors that span not only the extremes of fear, but literally the far reaches of the globe itself!

This Halloween Anchor Bay warns you to watch with the lights on!

Halloween Complete Collection Blu-ray

In a historic partnership with Scream Factory, the Halloween Complete Collection Blu-ray presents all the films in the iconic Halloween film franchise in a single package – all 10 films packaged together for the first time, including the newly restored Halloween 6 Curse of Michael Myers Producers Cut, the Halloween 35TH Anniversary Edition (also available separately), the two Rob Zombie films, and hours of NEW bonus features that will thrill fans of the legendary franchise and fans of modern horror cinema.


The Dead 2 Blu-ray and DVD

The first film took the world by storm two years ago. In this ferocious sequel to the worldwide horror hit The Dead, The Ford Brothers take their chilling vision of the zombie apocalypse to a different country and a whole new level: As the infectious epidemic spreads through India, an American turbine engineer (Joseph Millson of Casino Royale) learns that his pregnant girlfriend is trapped near the slums of Mumbai. Now, one man must battle his way across a 300-mile wasteland of the ravenous undead and into a nightmare city seething with flesh-eating madness.

In Fear Blu-ray and DVD

Produced by Nira Park (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End) and starring Iain De Caestecker (ABC’s hit series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and Allen Leech (“Downton Abbey”), In Fear has taken the horror world by storm, garnering rave reviews wherever it is played. In Fear is a tense psychological horror about a young couple’s fight to make it through the night. Tom (De Caestecker) and Lucy (Englert) are trapped in a maze of Irish backwoods roads with only their vehicle for protection, terrorized by an unseen tormentor hell-bent on exploiting their worst fears. Driving, lost and tormented in the night, primal fears of the dark and the unknown give way to fear that you have let the evil in, or that it is already there.


Mr. Jones Blu-ray and DVD

 “Who is Mr. Jones?” To some, he is an enigmatic artist, with a unique vision of humanity and our place in the spiritual universe. To others, his very name conjures unimaginable primal fears. But for two young people, he will become their worst nightmare… Scott (Jon Foster of Stay Alive) and Penny (Sarah Jones of “Sons Of Anarchy”) just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. But they’ll soon discover they are not alone: an infamously reclusive artist – known only as ‘Mr. Jones’ – lives nearby. He doesn’t like to be disturbed, and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods.  When Scott and Penny’s curiosity leads them too close for Mr. Jones’ comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness and mind-bending terror.

The Possession of Michael King Blu-ray and DVD

Michael King (Shane Johnson) doesn’t believe in God or The Devil. Following the sudden death of his wife, the documentary filmmaker decides to make his next film about the search for the existence of the supernatural. Michael decides to make himself the center of the experiment – allowing demonologists, necromancers, and various practitioners of the occult to try the deepest and darkest spells and rituals they can find on him – in the hopes that when they fail, he’ll once and for all have proof that religion, spiritualism, and the paranormal are nothing more than myth. But something does happen. An evil and horrifying force has taken over Michael King. And it will not let him go. Dale Dickey (Iron Man 3), Tomas Arana (Gladiator),and Julie McNiven (“Mad Men”) co-star in this intense supernatural spine-tingler from the producers of White Noise and The Haunting In Connecticut.


Silent Night, Deadly Night 30th Anniversary Blu-ray

One of the most controversial slasher films of all time is back! Chock full of gratuitous nudity and grisly violence, then stuffed with jolly extras for the absolute ultimate in Season’s Bleedings! Silent Night, Deadly Night is the story of little Billy Chapman who was traumatized by his parents’ Christmas Eve rape and murder, then brutalized by sadistic orphanage nuns. But when a grown-up Billy is forced to dress as jolly St. Nick, he goes on a yuletide rampage to ‘punish the naughty.’ Santa Claus is coming to town…and this time he’s got an axe! Robert Brian Wilson and Linnea Quigley star in this jawdropping horror hit that a nation of angry mothers still cannot stop!

And let’s not forget about these horror classics also available from Anchor Bay Entertainment: Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead, Rob Zombie’ terrifying The Lords of Salem, the bone-chilling Let Me In starring Chloe Grace Moretz, and master of terror Wes Craven’s Scream 4.

To celebrate the season, Anchor Bay has created a “Watch With The Lights On” horror trailer.
