Win Doom Asylum on Blu-ray

Doom Asylum

Preview by Jack Foley

To celebrate the release of Doom Asylum – available on Blu-ray on July 16, 2018, from Arrow Video – we have a copy to giveaway!

Horror-comedies are somewhat ten-a-penny but they so often get the balance completely wrong. They either go too funny and nullify the scares, or too scary so the laughs seem misplaced. Doom Asylum, hailing from 1987, however, gets the balance spot-on with lots of gross-out splatter combined with hilarious wise-cracks from serial killer, the Coroner.

Doom Asylum, as all good 1980s horrors should, also has perfect trash casting (in the best possible sense, of course)! As well as marking Kristin Davis’s movie debut a good 11 years before Sex & The City first premiered, the film also stars Penthouse Pet of the Year 1988, Patty Mullen, and Playboy centrefold, Ruth Collins. Now, just try to imagine Charlotte’s face if she were to hear about this…

For those who’ve only ever seen Doom Asylum on a grainy VHS, this Arrow Video release is a real treat. It includes a brand new 2K restoration from the original camera negative, two brand new audio commentaries, plus a selection of new and archival interviews. First pressings also come with a brand new, fully-illustrated collector’s booklet.

So, sit back, relax and enjoy some good old 80s splatter like never before.

Synopsis

When a group of horny teens wind up on the grounds of a creepy abandoned asylum, they think they’ve found the perfect place to party. Little do they know that inside the building’s crumbling walls lurks a freakishly deformed maniac, driven to madness by the tragic loss of his fiancée in a car accident.

With an array of grisly surgical tools at his disposal, it’s only a matter of time before the youngsters begin meeting various splattery ends at the hands of the ghoulish Coroner.
