Dan Curtis' BURNT OFFERINGS coming to Blu-ray on Oct. 6

Dan Curtis' 1976 haunted house thriller BURNT OFFERINGS is getting a Blu-ray release from our friends at Kino Lorber on Oct. 6. The film features a new HD master and includes the following special features:
  • New interview with screenwriter William F. Nolan
  • New interview with actor Lee Montgomery
  • New audio commentary by film historian Richard Harland Smith 
  • Audio commentary with director/co-writer/producer Dan Curtis, actress Karen Black, and co-screenwriter William F. Nolan
  • "Trailers From Hell" with Steve Senski
  • Animated Montage of Stills
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
The film is now available for pre-order from Amazon HERE.

BURNT OFFERINGS was the last of Curtis' theatrical efforts as a director, following 1970's HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS and the following year's NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS. The film sports an amazing cast that includes Bette Davis, Karen Black, Oliver Reed, and Burgess Meredith. It's an odd little film based on a Robert Marasco novel that Stephen King called "Brilliant."

King also included the film on a list of the best horror films ever made in his book "Danse Macabre."

FYI: BURNT OFFERINGS is scheduled to air on Turner Classic Movies at 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 2, a few days before its Blu-ray release. It will be followed by HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS at 3:30 a.m.
