"Door Into Silence" Comes To Region 1

Celebrated horror director Lucio Fulci's final production, the less-than-stellar "Door Into Silence," will make its Region 1 debut on June 30th courtesy of Severin Films, the edgy genre-friendly distributor responsible for giving Vidal Raski's ultra bizarre cult favorite "The Sinful Dwarf" a much-needed home on DVD. Your desire to purchase this admittedly dodgy motion picture will depend greatly upon your tolerance for John Savage, car chases involving funeral hearses, and half-baked psychological terror. In other words, it's probably better suited to Fulci completists than anyone else.

Here's a quick synopsis from IMDb:

Successful businessman Melvin Dovereux is caught in a traffic jam caused by a funeral procession. Soon he is haunted by visions of a hearse chasing him and a woman in a sports car. Could the funeral procession actually be for him?

While the film isn't the greatest cinematic treat Fulci ever produced, it's still worth a visit or two. The price tag is decent -- a few of my favorite sites have it listed as $14.99 -- though I haven't heard anything regarding special features as of this writing. That, of course, could change by the time summer rolls around.

If you're still excited, take a peak at the Severin Films website for more information.

Todd has been a slave to the horror genre for as long as he can remember. After cutting his teeth on late-night Cinemax schlock and the low-budget offerings found on the classic USA program "Up All Night," our hero moved valiantly into the world of sleazy obscura, consuming the oddest films from around the world with the reckless abandon of a man without fear or reason. When he isn't sitting mindlessly in front of a television set, he can be found stuffing music, video games, and various literary scribblings into his already cluttered mindscape.
