Severin Films is set to release Robert Fuest’s satanic phantasmagoria The Devil’s Rain on Blu-ray October 31st! Fans of the film have multiple ordering options (see the order links below), including the “Prince of the Abyss” bundle, which includes the Blu-ray, plus a limited, numbered edition slip case (only 1500 are being made), and a pendant necklace based on the stained glass window from the church featured in the film!
I’ve never seen the film myself, but I’ve always been interested, being that it was directed by Robert Fuest, who helmed my favorite horror film of all-time, The Abominable Dr. Phibes! Here’s the full info from the Severin website:
One Of The Most Notorious

PHIBES fame – and thrust them into an insane tale of rural occult carnage, featuring Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey as Technical Advisor.

In addition to this devilish release of the film, Severin has also collaborated with the Church of Satan and it’s merchandising operation iSatanist to produce a stylish pendant necklace recreating the stained glass window from the church seen in the film, available at the Severin Films store or as part of the Prince Of The Abyss bundle.
