The Town That Dreaded Sundown 1976 Blu

   Just announced from Shout Factory is Charles B. Pierce's 1976 thriller The Town That Dreaded Sundown, the plot of which is based upon a real series of killings that occurred in and around Texarkana in 1946. Starring Ben Johnson (She Wore A Yellow Ribbon), Andrew Prine (The Centerfold Girls) and Dawn Wells from Gilligan's Island. An added bonus Pierce's The Evictors (1976) will also be included on DVD.
  Pierce (who died in 2010), had a pretty interesting career - alternating directing, writing and producing his own features, many of which he "based" upon real events and working as a set decorator on such films as The Outlaw Josey Wells (1976).  Yet another old VHS I can retire and hopefully this will lead to his drive-in classic The Legend of Boggy Creek to getting a nice transfer and release.
