The concept was unprecedented: enlist seven of horror’s most transgressive filmmakers – Douglas Buck (FAMILY PORTRAITS), Buddy Giovinazzo (COMBAT SHOCK), David Gregory (PLAGUE TOWN), Karim Hussain (SUBCONSCIOUS CRUELTY), Jeremy Kasten (THE ATTIC EXPEDITIONS), splatter FX legend Tom Savini and Richard Stanley (HARDWARE) – and give them total creative freedom to create their own short films inspired by the Grand Guignol. The result – starring genre icons like Udo Kier (FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN), Catriona MacColl (THE BEYOND), Lynn Lowry (THE CRAZIES) and Debbie Rochon (AMERICAN NIGHTMARE) – has been called “wildly unique” (Dread Central), “hilarious, grotesque and scary” (Bloody Disgusting) and “one of the best horror anthologies of all time” (Paste). Experience “a trip you’ll never forget” (Mondo Digital), finally officially available on Blu-ray with hours of exclusive Special Features.

When Covid-19 hit, Severin Films chief David Gregory and House Of Psychotic Women author Kier-La Janisse decided to ask their industry friends which Top 5 films and segments that would make the ultimate horror anthology. The result became an international Zoom-enabled documentary featuring Eli Roth, Joe Dante, Greg Nicotero, Mark Hartley, Mick Garris, Ernest Dickerson, Joko Anwar, Ramsey Campbell, David DeCoteau, Kim Newman, Jovanka Vuckovic, Luigi Cozzi, Tom Savini, Jenn Wexler, Larry Fessenden, Richard Stanley, Brian Trenchard-Smith, Brian Yuzna, Gary Sherman, Rebekah McKendry and Roger Corman in a candid discussion of the best portmanteaus in film/TV history.

Over the course of seven years, three short films about the brutal dissolution of the American family – CUTTING MOMENTS (1997), HOME (1998), and PROLOGUE (2003) – elicited both horrified gasps and standing ovations at film festivals around the world. When combined into a theatrical feature, this trilogy by writer/producer/director/editor Douglas Buck – whose directing credits would eventually include the SISTERS remake and ‘The Accident’ segment of THE THEATRE BIZARRE – was hailed as “nightmarish” (The New York Times), “like Todd Solondz on crack” (Digitally Obsessed) and “the most chilling portrait of the loss of humanity in the manicured lawns of Middle America ever made” (LA Weekly). Buck’s “unbearably intense and enormously moving” (Filmecho) stunner is now scanned in 2k from the original negative for the first time ever with all-new Special Features.
