‘Portals’ Gets Limited VHS Release Alongside ‘Red Christmas’ and ‘All the Creatures Were Stirring’

Now on VOD platforms, Blu-ray and DVD through Screen Media, our newest anthology experiment, Portals, is getting a limited VHS release thanks to BrokeHorrorFan.com.

Now available for order at WitterEntertainment.com, the VHS release is fully functional and housed in a black clamshell case with artwork by Nicole Vettraino and Alex DiVincenzo, and is limited to 50.

Following in the tradition of our V/H/S trilogy and Southbound, we attempted something with sci-fi roots that includes segments directed by Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly, Exists), Gregg Hale (V/H/S/2), Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre, Headshot, May the Devil Take You, V/H/S/2, The Night Comes For Us) and Liam O’Donnell (Beyond Skyline).

The film is set around a series of worldwide blackouts — after which millions of mysterious cosmic anomalies appear everywhere across the planet. While many flee from the sentient objects, some people are drawn toward — and into — them with horrifying consequences.

Portals isn’t the only one getting the VHS treatment as two holiday horror films are also available.

In the Christmas-themed horror film All the Creatures Were Stirring, an awkward date on Christmas Eve leads a couple into a strange theater, where they’re treated to a bizarre and frightening collection of Christmas stories, featuring a wide ensemble of characters doing their best to avoid the horrors of the holidays. From boring office parties and last-minute shopping, to vengeful stalkers and immortal demons, there’s plenty out there to fear this holiday season.

Written and directed by David Ian McKendry (The Dump) and Rebekah McKendry (The Barista), the film stars Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians, “Fresh Off the Boat”), Amanda Fuller (“Orange is the New Black”), Jonathan Kite (“2 Broke Girls”), Jocelin Donahue (Insidious: Chapter 2), Graham Skipper (The Mind’s Eye) and Morgan Peter Brown.

Genre icon Dee Wallace stars in Craig Anderson’s Aussie horror film Red Christmas, which Chris Coffel reviewed and called “the perfect stocking stuffer for slasher fans,” adding, “Red Christmas has a completely bonkers plot and I love every second of it.”

“Wallace stars as the stressed-out mother of a squabbling family, gathered together in a remote Outback estate on Christmas Eve. When a mysterious, deformed young man appears at their door, things soon change from petty insults to bloody, imaginatively orchestrated violence as Wallace attempts to protect her family from the vengeful intruder. The film deliriously infuses comedy, dark family secrets with outlandish gore and adds the always controversial subject of abortion in its blood-stained mix.”
