In a light week, Midnight Son and Girls Gone Dead lead a small pack of home video releases.
This 1968 offering from Great Britain's legendary Hammer Productions stars the iconic Peter Cushing in the tale of a mad scientist whose experiments lead to his daughter transforming into a vampiric moth-like creature with a thirst for blood.
Not to be confused with the recent John Landis dark comedy of the same name, this 1972 film (of which the Landis movie was a remake) tells a somewhat bawdier version of the real-life story of two down-on-their-luck stiffs who make money by selling corpses to a local Scottish medical school -- an arrangement that soon leads to murder.
During Spring Break, a group of bikini-clad cheerleaders and the film crew for a Girls Gone Wild-styled video have their party cut short by a robed killer with a war hammer to grind.
Though no one can see him, Hollow Face lurks in the corners, desperately desiring love but only knowing how to spread fear and hate. He creeps into the life of John Farrow after Farrow's beloved 13-year-old daughter Mia is assaulted in their home. The line between the real and the imaginary blurs as fissures start to open within the family unit. It seems that no security measure can keep Hollow Face out.
A young Los Angeles loner with a skin condition that makes him sensitive to sunlight begins to undergo a transformation that causes him to crave blood.
