WALMART ROLLS OUT DVD’S OF ACCLAIMED THRILLER “DARK AWAKENING”
(Bentonville, AR) Horror movie fans have hit the jackpot with today’s release onto DVD of the acclaimed horror-thriller, “Dark Awakening” from director Dean C. Jones. This suspenseful and critically praised theatrical release is now available on DVD at Walmart locations nationwide, announced distributor Hannover House, Inc. (OTC: HHSE) in a press announcement from Bentonville, Arkansas. The videos carry a suggested retail price of $14.95, but will be available for a limited time at Walmart for only $9.96.
“'Dark Awakening' is one of the best, independent horror films to be released in the past decade,” said Eric Parkinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House, an independent film distribution company with more than 400 titles in its library. “Director Dean Jones has added a terrifying twist to the haunted-house premise, with a powerful, surprise ending that left audiences jumping and screaming. We think that this title will become a home video classic in the vein of ‘Halloween’ and ‘Amityville Horror.’ It’s definitely worth seeing and owning for future views,” he concluded.
The film stars action and horror film legend Lance Henriksen (“Terminator”, “Alien”), alongside Jason Cook and Valerie Azlynn. “Dark Awakening” opened in theatres last June, and played in more than forty cities across the USA. Walmart Stores, Inc., is the nation’s largest retailer of DVD and BluRay videos, with a market share of more than fifty percent of all physical home video unit sales.
