‘Motel Hell’ Gets a 4K Transfer from Scream Factory
Written by Robert Jaffe and Steven-Charles Jaffe, Motel Hell stars Rory Calhoun, Paul Linke and Nancy Parsons and tells the terrible tale of a Motel killing of their patrons.
Vincent Smith (Rory Calhoun) and his sister Ida (Nancy Parsons) run a rural hotel, but they earn most of their cash operating a food stand that specializes in world-famous sausages. After years of success, however, the duo’s upstanding brother, Sheriff Bruce (Paul Linke), eventually discovers the grotesque details of his siblings’ booming business: Vincent and Ida are actually plumping up their hotel patrons, killing and dismembering them and then grinding them into frankfurters.
The new Limited Edition Steelbook has an October 13th release date in the US and Canada, but we are awaiting on news of a UK/EU release.
The release is a little light on NEW content as Scream Factory is just lifting it’s bonus material directly from it’s previous release. However, it does come with an Exclusive Lithograph. The Steelbook will include:
- NEW 4K Transfer From The Original Camera Negative
