Stagefright had recently gone out of print on DVD and online resellers were beginning to command a high asking price for a new copy. The good news for anyone looking to add the Michael Soavi classic to their collection is that Blue Underground is re-issuing the film on DVD and is making the film available on Region 1 Blu-ray. The upcoming release will contain a series of new and exclusive extras!
In Stagefright, a theatre troupe is rehearsing tirelessly to prepare for the opening of their play. When one of the performers injures her ankle, she drives to a nearby hospital for medical attention. What the dancer doesn’t realize is that the institution she has chosen is actually a mental hospital. A kind physician agrees to see her anyway. But when the young performer leaves the hospital, she brings an uninvited guest back with her. The director then proceeds to unintentionally lock the performers in the theater with the escaped mental patient. From there, the deranged madman preys upon the cast members and picks them off, one by one.
