Synopsis

"One of the best horror films of the '70s. An intriguing story and disturbing imagery makes this one stick out in the psyche." – Brian McKay, eFilmCritic.com

When a beautiful model, Alison Parker (Cristina Raines, Nashville, The Duellists), rents an apartment in a gloomy New York brownstone, little does she realize that an unspeakable horror awaits her behind its doors...a mysterious gateway to hell. Alison likes her eccentric new neighbors, so it comes as a shock when she's told that, except for a strange old priest, she's the only tenant.

Based on Jeffrey Konvitz's best-selling novel, this contemporary gothic chiller features amazing special makeup effects by the legendary Dick Smith (The Exorcist, Little Big Man) and an incredible assemblage of stars including Chris Sarandon, Ava Gardner, José Ferrer, John Carradine, Burgess Meredith, Beverly D'Angelo, Jerry Orbach, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Berenger and Christopher Walken. Director Michael Winner (Death Wish) comes up with something to terrify everyone in this spine-tingling exercise in supernatural horror.

Why We Love It

“Fans of The Sentinel (and there are many) will firstly appreciate the new HD transfer, stricken from the original Interpositive. Though there are brief pieces of evidence of natural wear-and-tear, this transfer is otherwise gorgeous and surprisingly clear, even through a somewhat heavier grain than some might anticipate; if anything, it all adds to the vintage appeal of the film. Likewise, Scream knocks it out of the park with the audio transfer as well, mixing it perfectly for those even without top tier home theaters…. And THE SENTINEL also makes for an excellent addition for Blu-ray collectors, with the film containing two brand new commentary tracks as well as a healthy amount of ported-over extras as well.” – Fangoria

“As usual Scream Factory has assembled impressive supplements for those considering a purchase.” Bluray.com

“Worth the price for Winner's commentary on its own, this one comes recommended.” DVD Talk
