Director Robert Englund (the iconic Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street series) dials up a gothic tale of high-tech horror in 976-EVIL .

High school underdog Hoax ( Stephen Geoffreys - Fright Night ) fills up the idle hours in his seedy little hometown fending off the local leather-jacketed thugs, avoiding his overbearing mother ( Sandy Dennis ) and dreaming of a date with trailer park temptress Suzie ( Lezlie Deane ), But his quietly desperate life takes a terrifying turn when his cousin introduces him to an unusual new hobby -- phoning in for his "horrorscope". Hoax is hooked up with a compellingly hideous demonic force that slowly begins to overtake his entire life and now there's more than just a phone bill to pay for anyone who ever dared cross "the neighbourhood nerd".

Co-written by Brian Helgeland ( L.A. Confidential, Mystic River ) and featuring incredibly practical effects work from Robert Kurtzman and Howard Berger , Eureka Classics is proud to present 976-EVIL on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.
