Deadly Blessing in March

News
Arrow Video are pleased to announce that the Blu-ray & DVD deluxe edition of Wes Craven’s American horror classic, Deadly Blessing, will be released in the UK on Monday March 25th.

A true master of Hollywood horror, Wes Craven directs a young Sharon Stone in one of her first ever feature film roles. Deadly Blessing is a tale of rural disgust and simmering evil from the golden age of video terror, brought back to life and soon-to-be available on Blu-ray for the very first time.

When Martha marries Tom, she leaves her LA lifestyle behind and the pair settle-down on an isolated farm, appropriately named “Our Blessing”. Before entering into wed-lock, Tom was part of a close-knit sect known as Hittite, a hardcore working community (even more aggressive than the Amish) who think that all modern machinery is the work of the devil. Martha feels shunned by the Hittite members and is treated as an outsider by its fanatical members...

- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the main feature
