ACORN MEDIA With Extra Halloween Frights


Acorn Media and Shudder are bringing you even more reasons to be afraid this Halloween with two new horror films on DVD.

The first of which is Fried Barry, a story about Barry, a drug-addled, abusive bastard who – after yet another bender – gets abducted by aliens. Barry takes a backseat as an alien visitor assumes control of his body and takes it for a joyride through Cape Town. What follows is an onslaught of drugs, sex and violence as our alien tourist enters the weird and wonderful world of humankind.

The second is titled Son, which is more in the supernatural vein. After a mysterious group of individuals breaks into Laura’s home and attempts to steal her eight-year-old son David, the two of them flee town in search of safety. But soon after the failed kidnapping, David becomes extremely ill, suffering from increasingly sporadic psychosis and convulsions. Following her maternal instincts to save him, Laura commits unspeakable acts to keep him alive but soon, she must decide how far she is willing to go to save her son.

Both movies are released on Blu Ray and DVD on October 20.
