Blu-ray Review: ‘The Larry Fessenden Collection’

I’ll be honest. I hadn’t heard of Larry Fessenden before I got this collection. He’s an indie-horror legend who’s released a few cool movies over the years (acting, writing and directing). His movies are not gory but more psychological. In watching some of these movies his unique style really shows. And now for the first time you can get four of his movies in one collection with a lot of cool bonus content. Available in stores on Tuesday, October 20.

The Larry Fessenden Collection Bonus Features:

· 24-Page Booklet with liner notes by Fangoria’s Michael Gingold, featuring never-before-seen photos, storyboards and sketches.
