"A Stunning Debut Feature... One Of The Finest Examples Of The Stalk-And-Slash Subgenre!" --DVD Maniacs
The Terrifying First Film from the Director of THE CHURCH and CEMETERY MAN
While a group of young actors rehearse a new musical about a mass murderer, a notorious psychopath escapes from a nearby insane asylum. But when the show's director locks his cast in the theater overnight, the madman is accidentally locked inside as well. Now, a killer with acting in his blood has gone berserk for the blood of actors (including several scenes that EuroHorror fans worldwide consider to be the most violent of the decade) and the stage is set for one unforgettable evening of shock, suspense and unstoppable carnage.
STAGEFRIGHT marked the stunning directorial debut of Dario Argento protege Michele Soavi and instantly sealed his reputation as the leader of Italian horror's new generation of filmmakers. Also know as AQUARIUS, DELIRIA and BLOODY BIRD, this brutal shocker has been restored from original Rome vault materials and is presented unrated, uncensored and totally uncut.
