Fans of obscure '80s slasher movies will rejoice as Exposure Cinema are releasing the classic and overlooked STAGEFRIGHT as a limited edition Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

Directed by Michele Soavi (DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE, THE CHURCH), it follows a troupe of actors rehearsing a music about a serial killer named the Night Owl, but they are locked in one night some one murders them, one by one. The killer stalks them wearing the nightmarish, but iconic, Night Owl costume.

It's a fabulous piece of Italian cinema, with a stunning pedigree. Co-produced by Joe D'Amato, written by George (ANTHROPOPHAGUS) Eastman, it includes in it's cast Giovanni Lombardo Radice (aka John Morghen - CANNIBAL FEROX).
