The arrival of VHS – in the midst of the first home video format war with Betamax – opened up new opportunities for both filmmakers and studios alike; not only were current box office hits and classic movies being issued on home video for folks to enjoy, but it also opened up a new avenue for films that largely went either unnoticed in theaters or missed the opportunity to do so. Such is the case of Superstition, a film made in 1982, but held on the shelf for a few years before a brief theatrical run and subsequent VHS release, where it became a favorite of Horror genre fans. Now, Scream Factory – through a deal with Studio Canal – has brought this staple of the VHS era to Blu-ray for the first time.

Thanks for the review @t1g3r5fan

I'm pretty sure I've seen this film years ago, though I don't recall much about it. I just know that it had one of those great covers that would beckon to a young horror fan from the shelves of the video store, so you just had to rent it.

Though with nearly an hour of new special features, why a 0/5 rating?

Special Features: 0/5

That Crazy Witchcraft – An Interview with director James Roberson (23:56) – In this newly recorded interview, the director shares his memories of the film while also reflecting on his career prior to the film.

Lake of Fire – An Interview with actor James Houghton (30:08) – Newly recorded for this release, the actor goes over his time on the production as well as memories of being on the set of a few movie and TV productions as a kid – he’s the son of The Twilight Zone producer Buck Houghton.
