It's that time of year for horror movie binging!
And there's nothing better than binging on some of the greatest and most important movies ever made -- that you own. Fortunately for you, Criterion is holding a sale on a bunch of their horror titles just in time for Halloween, cutting the price of great films like Don't Look Now, Repulsion, and Scanners almost in half.
- The Uninvited (dir. Lewis Allen)
- Don't Look Now (dir. Nicolas Roeg)
- Rosemary's Baby (dir. Roman Polanski)
- Repulsion (dir. Roman Polanski)
- House (Housu) (dir. Nobuhiko Obayashi)
- The Devil's Backbone (dir. Guillermo del Toro)
- Cronos (dir. Guillermo del Toro)
- Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (dir. Jaromil Jire)
- Scanners (dir. David Cronenberg)
- Videodrome (dir. David Cronenberg)
- Eyes Without a Face (dir. Georges Franju)
- Persona (dir. Ingmar Bergman)
- Kuroneko (dir. Kaneto Shindo)
- Vampyr (Carl T. Dreyer)
So, if you're a big Polanski, del Toro, or Cronenberg fan, you'll be given the option to snag some of their classic work in the horror genre. But Criterion is also offering some cult classics, like Don't Look Now, both genre favorites of directors Wes Craven and Martin Scorsese, as well as Hausu, one of the strangest, most visually stimulating film you'll ever see. They're even offering a title from the early years of cinema, Vampyr, directed by arguably the most celebrated Danish director of all time, Carl T. Dreyer. It's every cinefile's horror binge dream -- especially with all of those special features and featurettes that come standard in films released in the Criterion Collection.
The sale ends this Saturday (October 24th), so hurry and snatch these up before it's too late.
