Scream Factory Releasing THE LARRY FESSENDEN COLLECTION on Blu-ray October 20th!

Award-winning filmmaker Larry Fessenden has become an indie horror legend with his idiosyncratic, genre-bending films. As a writer, producer, director and actor, Fessenden’s oeuvre has developed a passionate fan base who applaud his realistic, character-driven horror stories. Fessenden’s films often examine the disintegration of civilization and humanity, provoking terror in the viewer through psychological dread, not gratuitous gore.
