TV Terror from the Vaults

They just don't make TV movies like they used to. Oh, sure, occasionally we get something kinda worth watching like that killer bees on a plane movie that Lifetime aired earlier this year, but that sorta stuff was on TV almost weekly during the 1970s!

Wild Eye Releasing is bringing some of that classic TV terror to DVD with such flicks as THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER (a ROSEMARY'S BABY riff starring Jonathan Frid and Shelley Winters) and CRAWLSPACE, a 1972 shocker – not to be confused with the Klaus Kinski film of the same name – from the director of the cult classic DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK.

But it ain't all TV terrors at Wild Eye. They're also releasing two flicks from no-budget auteur Keith Crocker – 1997's THE BLOODY APE and the more recent BLITZKRIEG: ESCAPE FROM STALAG 69 (nice), which their site touts as "Quite possibly the only World War II movie ever made on Long Island"!
