This first-ever restoration of the 1977 cult Canadian horror shocker Cathy’s Curse has been hailed as one of the most arguably depraved genre rediscoveries of the year…

In 1947, a young girl is roasted alive in a car accident. Thirty years later, her grown brother returns to their childhood home with his mentally unstable wife and sweet daughter Cathy. But when the dead aunt’s vengeful spirit possesses the child, it unleashes an unnerving nightmare of creepy mediums, demonic dolls, and plenty of foul-mouthed moppet mayhem.

A damned strange Exorcist/Omen/Carrie-inspired grindhouse flick, Severin’s new edition of the movie is transferred in 2k from recently-found film elements and features  new bonuses with star Randi Allen and producer/director/co-writer Eddy Matalon.

Here’s a complete list of the supplements:

-Director’s Cut
-Alternate U.S. Release Cut
-Tricks And Treats: An Interview with Director Eddy Matalon
Cathy & Mum: Interview with Actress Randi Allen and Costume Designer Joyce Allen
-Audio Commentary on U.S. Cut by BirthMoviesDeath critic Brian Collins and Filmmaker Simon Barrett
-Introduction to Cinematic Void Screening At American Cinematheque by BirthMoviesDeath Critic Brian Collins
