  • Synapse Films Releasing The Convent On UHD

    Press release!

    THE HOLIDAYS GO TO HELL WHEN SYNAPSE FILMS OPENS THE DOORS TO MIKE MENDEZ'S THE CONVENT ON LIMITED EDITION SLIPCOVER UHD + BLU-RAY COMBO THIS BLACK FRIDAY!

    WHEN A NON-SLIPCOVER RELEASE IS ANNOUNCED AT A LATER DATE WE WILL MAKE SCREENERS AVAILABLE THEN.

    The Limited Edition (4,000 units) UHD + Blu-ray Slipcover combo for THE CONVENT will go on sale at 11am EST on Friday, November 24, 2023 exclusively from the Synapse Films website and DiabolikDVD.com. Copies will be shipped after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend from both retailers.

    “I can’t recommend this movie enough. Invite some friends over, break out some drinks and food, and let THE CONVENT possess your party… with fun.” – Patrick Krause, Morbidly Beautiful

    In 1960, a young woman named Christine enters St. Francis Boarding School for Girls and lays waste to the resident nuns. Four decades later, a group of college students head to the long-abandoned building late one night to tag it with their fraternity letters, little knowing that rumors of the place being haunted are terrifyingly true. Stir in a couple of disapproving cops and a band of unlikely Satanists, and the table is set for a feast of demonic infestation and bloodshed that only the grown-up Christine (Adrienne Barbeau, THE FOG, SWAMP THING) can possibly stop.

    From its opening massacre, set to the strains of (appropriately enough) Lesley Gore, THE CONVENT is an in-your-face fright film with a full-blooded sense of humor. Director Mike Mendez (THE GRAVEDANCERS, BIG ASS SPIDER!) both embraces and skewers the traditions of supernatural/possession cinema, with wicked twists that upend expectations and deliver jolts and laughs in equal measure. Not for the devout or the easily offended, the film gives Barbeau one of her best roles as the motorcycle-riding, shotgun-wielding Christine, with bonus appearances by fellow genre icon Bill Moseley (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS) and rapper/actor Coolio. THE CONVENT rocked audiences at festivals including Sundance and Fantasia, but has long been unavailable on disc. Now you can possess its uncensored U.S. debut remastered in Dolby Vision 4K from the original uncut 35mm Internegative elements and worship the extensive special features!

      I swear to god that the press release for the LE stated that the standard edition would NOT be a combo pack. Of course, I bought that edition thinking that the Blu-ray would be dropped. Fuck you Synapse.
      Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?
