Blu-ray out 16th July 2018 from Arrow Video
 
If the news that there won’t be another Sex and the City movie hit you hard, it’s time to cheer up as Arrow Video have your Charlotte fix on it’s way with their Blu-ray release of Doom Asylum. With lashings of gore and more than a few macabre chuckles, this is one of the most entertaining slashers of the 1980s - and that’s saying something.
 
When a group of horny teens wind up on the grounds of a creepy abandoned asylum, they think they’ve found the perfect place to party. Little do they know that inside the building’s crumbling walls lurks a freakishly deformed maniac, driven to madness by the tragic loss of his fiancée in a car accident. With an array of grisly surgical tools at his disposal, it’s only a matter of time before the youngsters begin meeting various splattery ends at the hands of the ghoulish Coroner. Helmed by director Richard Friedman (Scared Stiff and Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge), and also starring Penthouse Pet of the Year 1988 Patty Mullen (Frankenhooker), Doom Asylum combines outlandish gore and a wise-cracking villain to create one of the most wildly entertainingly blood-spattered slashers of the late ’80s.
