Palisades Tartan Revamp Some Older Releases

The folk over at Palisades Tartan have taken fours movies from their back catalogue and revamped the artwork and changed the titles in an attempt to bring the movies to a wider audience. These new releases are due to hit the stores on October 4th. Of the four movies being released I already have an original Tartan release of Bad Blood, which I do recommend checking out when it hits as Blood Curse, as well as Carved which will now been known as The Slit-Mouthed Woman. The other two releases are Root of Evil, formerly Acacia, and The Hillside Stranglings which was previously released as The Hillside Strangler. All four are set to retail for $14.98

Check out the full press release below for details on each flick, plus above is the shiny new artwork for Blood Curse.
