Wes Craven’s 1978 Film ‘Summer of Fear’ Getting Blu-ray Release

In HORROR FILMS by Steve

         

In the wake of Wes Craven directing The Last House on the Left and Linda Blair starring in The Exorcist, Craven and Blair joined forces for Summer of Fear (aka Stranger in Our House), a made-for-TV movie that premiered on Halloween night, 1978.

We’re excited to report today that the film is soon making its Blu-ray debut with a Special Collector’s Edition alongside a DVD and VOD release! The disc, available this summer from Doppelgänger Releasing, will contain a slew of exciting special bonus features that will be announced shortly.

Based on the best-selling young adult novel by Lois Duncan of I Know What I Did Last Summer fame, Summer of Fear tells the tale of plucky teenager Rachel (Linda Blair), whose life is turned dangerously upside down when her cousin Julie (Lee Purcell) moves in following the death of her parents in a car crash. Julie enchants everyone in the family and appears to be a loving relative, but Rachel knows her cousin is up to something creepy… something like witchcraft!

Jeremy Slate, Jeff East and Fran Drescher also star.
