Scream Factory Logo

Let me just start by telling you that it won’t be a total shock to hear of a few last minute additions from the Scream Factory gang. These awesome genre lovers never, ever rest, and that often leads to some brilliant Blu-ray releases. In fact, when it comes to genre specialists, none rival the mighty Scream Factory, who we love and support!

Now, given our affinity for the company, we’re going to start a trend of providing you with Scream’s monthly genre releases. So read on for a look at what’s coming this wonderful November!

Carnage Park (November 1st)

Carnage Park

It’s 1978 and a bank robbery gone wrong forces two criminals to take a hostage – the young-but-resilient Vivian (The Last Exorcism’s Ashley Bell) – as they go on the run. But things go from bad to off-the-rails berserk when Vivian and her captors wind up in the crosshairs of a deranged ex-military sniper (Pat Healy, Cheap Thrills, Starry Eyes), who ensnares them in his deadly game of cat and mouse. Rising horror auteur Mickey Keating (Pod, Darling) directs this gritty, grisly homage to the glory days of grindhouse cinema.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street In Concert (November 1st)

sweeney-todd-scream

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd!

Stephen Sondheim’s macabre musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, receives one bloody delicious production in this 2001 concert presentation of Broadway’s black-humored thriller of revenge, razors, murder, and meat pies.

Returning to Victorian London after a long exile, the unhinged barber Sweeney Todd seeks violent vengeance on the unscrupulous judge who separated him from his family, freedom… and sanity. Teaming with the Sweeney-smitten, pie-making Mrs. Lovett, Todd reopens his tonsorial parlor to lure the judge in… and then practice his murderous desires on the throats of Fleet Street’s citizenry!

Broadway legend Patti LuPone (TV’s Penny Dreadful), Tony Award winner George Hearn, and Neil Patrick Harris headline this special concert presentation of one of the theatre’s tastiest triumphs.
