Witchcraft (1988) Blu-ray: A very good Linda Blair shocker

British label 88 Films has detailed the upcoming release of Director Fabrizio Laurenti’s surprisingly decent horror flick, Witchcraft (1988) on Blu-ray. Stars Linda Blair, David Hasselhoff.

Starring The Exorcist’s Linda Blair and Knight Rider’s David Hasselhoff… Director Fabrizio Laurenti (Crawlers) brings you a creepy tale of terror, witchcraft and sacrifice. When pregnant Jane (Linda Blair) and her family visit a secluded island to check out a proposed real estate deal, things start to go wrong when they come across two trespassers, supernatural expert Leslie and her boyfriend Gary (David Hasselhoff). Forced to spend the night in a dilapidated house, the group are soon plunged into a nightmare of death and destruction at the hands of the powerful and mysterious Lady in Black (Hildegard Knef).

La Casa/Witchery/Witchcraft is a carnage fuelled splatter fest, a rabid romp incorporating hauntings, possession and unexpected twists and turns. An entertainingly rare find from video store hay day of Italian made scary movies, it will delight fans of late 80s horror, a weird and wonderful necessity for the cult collector.
