‘STAGEFRIGHT’ (1987) 4K Restoration Heading To UK Blu-ray and On Demand

Michele Soavi’s STAGEFRIGHT (1987) is coming to UK Blu-ray and video on demand from Shameless Films. The slasher classic is getting a 4K restoration and you’re definitely going to want to check it out!

Watch the trailer below (the age-restricted trailer is here), then read on for all the details!

From The STAGEFRIGHT Press Release

When a masked killer infiltrates a group of actors rehearsing overnight in an isolated theatre, the stage is set for carnage! Featuring an abundance of over-the-top kills and spills, shot with Soavi’s typical style, marvel at the mayhem as the iconic chainsaw wielding ‘Owl Man’, delivers a blood-soaked performance for the ages.

From one of the masters of Italian horror, Stagefright is at the pinnacle of 80s slashers. Michele Soavi was schooled by Dario Argento and Terry Gilliam and his beloved first feature can now finally be seen as intended, with this edition further benefiting from the director’s colour grading and framing indications given during a candid interview filmed exclusively for this release.

Here’s a look at the official cover art!
