Responding to overwhelming consumer demand from the first round of Fright Packs released last July, Anchor Bay Entertainment will once again tap its famed horror film vault, serving up the next blood thirst-quenching set of Fright Packs – Cooler Than Hell! DVD sets with two all-new “flavors” -- Man’s Worst Friends (a collection of films about critters gone evil) and Walking Dead (an anthology of zombie classics). Each spine-chilled “sixer” is priced at a horrifically low SRP of $34.98, with a pre-book date of August 16th.
Long recognized as the industry leader in horror DVD programming, Anchor Bay Entertainment continues its time-honored tradition of using only the finest ingredients: choice film transfers, select sound mastering, comprehensive bonus content and great packaging that generations of horror fans have come to expect. Each Fright Pack contains six separate horror films on DVD with “beer-can” artwork from each title, wrapped in specially designed foil packaging and complete with a convenient, easy-grip handle.
In addition to the enthusiastic consumer response to the first two Fright Packs -- Campy Classics and The Devil Made Me Do It -- critics have sounded off their appreciation for the unique DVD concept. Entertainment Weekly proclaimed the first Fright Pack “a six-flick set of kitschy thrills” while Film Threat.com declared “Anchor Bay has always known how to catch a consumer’s eye” and The Horror Channel.com gave Fright Packs “4 out of 5 Mugs O’Blood!”
Serving Premium Horror since 1989, Anchor Bay Entertainment is committed to bringing horror fans their favorite films on DVD. Remember: Watch Fright Packs responsibly – or not – it’s your call!
On September 13, forget that football game and get ready to chug down these bloody good titles!
