Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

IT WILL TAKE YOU FURTHER THAN FEAR.

Of all the many slice-and-dice films that emerged in the early ‘80s, few remain as gruesomely effective as The Burning – the notorious “video nasty” now finally unleashed on Blu-ray!

When an ill-advised prank misfires, summer camp caretaker Cropsy is committed to hospital with hideous burns. Released after five years, hospital officials warn him not to blame the young campers who caused his disfigurement. But no sooner is Cropsy back on the streets than he’s headed back to camp with a rusty pair of shears in hand, determined to exact his bloody revenge.

With standout gore effects courtesy of FX legend Tom Savini, The Burning proved too shocking for UK censors upon its original video release. Now, fully uncut and in High Definition, The Burning is ready to reclaim its place as the ultimate summer camp nightmare.

Top tier slasher

This is the best package for this film with the most extras. Recommended.

A classic slasher

Does not have the brand recognition of a Friday the 13th or Halloween but this slasher is right up there quality wise. This edition of it is the very best available also. Great special features, quality transfer and nice packaging.

Great slasher

Great slasher film and this is the best release of it anywhere in the world. Recommended.
