A horror anthology of shorts themed around the five senses is bound for Blu-ray in October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory will release 'Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear' on Blu-ray on October 22.
SMELL – Directed by Nick Everhart. Left by his wife and stuck in a dead-end job, Seth Kyle's life is the definition of undesirable…until a mysterious saleswoman shows up at his door offering him "a scent to die for." Armed with a new air of self-confidence and a never-ending barrage of attention, Seth quickly learns that the smell of success comes with a deadly price.
SIGHT – Directed by Miko Hughes (actor from Pet Semetary). Unsatisfied with his own version of reality, an optometrist develops a machine that can harness the visions of all of his patients. In an attempt to show his favorite patient's abusive boyfriend the error of his ways, the doctor injects a series of viciously brutal images into his mind, leading to a visceral bloodbath of reality and hallucinations.
TOUCH – Directed by Emily Hagins (My Sucky Teen Romance). After a car accident leaves him stranded in the middle of nowhere, a 12-year-old blind boy stumbles into the stomping grounds of a sadistic serial killer. Using his memory and strong sense of touch, he must navigate through the unfamiliar territory as the killer quickly closes in.
TASTE – Directed by Eric England. A street-smart hacker is brought in for a job interview with a mysterious corporation. He soon learns that the company is led by a man-eater who has impeccable taste…and doesn't take "no" for an answer.
HEARING – Directed by Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton (YellowBrickRoad). While researching an urban legend about a song that's long been thought lost, a group of friends piece together all the existing recordings of it, bringing it back to life for the first time in decades. Before long, they discover the bone-chilling truth of what happens to anyone who listens to it and why it was buried for so long.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.97.
