As October rolls around, we step ever closer to what some have called an ‘unholy’ holiday in Halloween… making it the perfect time for THE DEVIL’S RAIN to be released on blu-ray! Thanks to the fine folks at Severin Films, the 1970’s Satanic cult classic will be available for home video in glorious 2K high definition. On top of that, this special edition blu-ray has the pentagram seal of approval from none other than The Church Of Satan, whose founder Anton LaVey was a consultant on the film as well as having a memorable cameo. The release also includes bundles for a limited edition slipcover and a pendent used by Corbis, the Satanic leader played by Ernest Borgnine in the film.

Here’s the official synopses and specs:
Take an all-star cast – including William Shatner, Ernest Borgnine, Eddie Albert, Keenan Wynn, Tom Skerritt, Ida Lupino and even John Travolta in his movie debut – at their most hellishly over-the-top. Add one of the most visually inventive filmmakers of the era – director Robert Fuest, of THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES fame – and thrust them into an insane tale of rural occult carnage, featuring Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey as Technical Advisor. Watch in infernal awe as it all hurtles towards the most eye-popping, flesh-melting finale in grindhouse history. Now experience this devilishly infamous classic as you’ve never seen or heard it before, restored in HD for the first time ever and oozing with all-new Extras approved by Lucifer himself!
