'The Devil's Rain' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Apr 4, 2017 at 06:29 AM PDT by

The 1975 horror film will be getting the high-definition treatment this year.

In an early announcement to retailers, Severin says 'The Devil's Rain' will be available on Blu-ray later this year.

A bunch of Satanists in the American rural landscape have terrible powers which enable them to melt their victims. However one of the children of an earlier victim vows to destroy them.

Patriarch Steve Preston goes missing and worried mom Emma (Ida Lupino) sends eldest son Mark (William Shatner) in search of his father. Suddenly, a dying, eyeless Steve returns and demands that the family: "Give Corbis what belongs to him!" before dissolving into a gelatinous meltdown.

Corbis (Ernest Borgnine) is a Satanic priest hell-bent on recovering a valuable book listing the names of those who sold their souls to the devil... a book that resides with the Preston family. Mark refuses to hand it over and puts up a brave fight, only to wind up an unwilling sacrifice.

Occult expert, Dr. Richards (Eddie Albert) and Mark's younger brother Tom (Tom Skerritt) plot to free the Prestons and destroy The Devil's Rain, a bottle containing the souls of those already damned. The battle rages as the elixir is released and a bloody rain of devilry and malevolence is loosed upon a screaming, melting world.

No other details have been revealed at this time.
