Severin Films announce ‘Shocktober’ Blu-ray releases: The Black Cat (1990), Patrick Still Lives and Shock Treatment

Severin Films has announced the ‘Shocktober’ releases of Luigi Cozzi’s bonkers The Black Cat (1990), Mario Landi’s manic Patrick Still Lives and Alain Jessua’s hospital horror Shock Treatment. All are out on October 27th 2020.

The Black Cat stars horror genre regulars Caroline Munro, Brett Halsey, Florence Guérin and Urbano Barberini in a meta-story of fright filmmakers encountering a real demon while filming a Three Mothers-themed horror flick!

Patrick Still Lives (1980) is Mario Landi’s outrageous sex ‘n’ gore-filled Italian unofficial sequel to Richard Franklin’s Australian flick Patrick (1978) which features the notorious long poker up Mariangela Giordano’s pussy scene! The screenplay was written by Piero Regnoli (Nightmare CityMalabimbaThe Playgirls and the Vampire).

Shock Treatment is a tale of medical madness at a seaside clinic that features French stars Alain Delon and Annie Girardot (infamously released in UK cinemas by Antony Balch (Horror Hospital) as Doctor in the Nude!).

All three films have been scanned uncut in 2K from original elements and are presented in 1.66:1 widescreen. Special features are:
