Movie Ad of the Week: BOARDINGHOUSE (1984)
John Wintergate's micro-budgeted horror picture BOARDINGHOUSE was shot on Betacam video and then transferred to 35mm film for theatrical release through Howard Willette's Coast Films, circa Halloween '83. As with other Willette presentations (RITUALS, TEEN LUST), Aquarius Releasing handled sub-distribution when the film opened in the New York area (March 2, 1984). Incredibly, a new 30th anniversary DVD of BOARDINGHOUSE from Slasher // Video contains a 157-minute director's cut (!), which the intrepid William S. Wilson reviewed a couple of weeks ago at Video Junkie Strikes Back from Beyond the Grave.
