Uncertain of her intentions, the group of trendy homesteaders go about their business but soon find themselves up against a very unexpected geriatric evil, hell-bent on keeping them as permanent residents in ‘her’ house, dispatching them in a series of creatively gruesome ways. But to make matters even worse, shortly after meeting their demise, their mutilated corpses return from the dead, determined to help their elderly assassin and her fiendish daughter finish off the others…

S/Fx wizards Ed French and Bruce Spaulding lend their tremendous talents to this slasher/zombie classic that began life as The Dead Come Home.

Release Date: September 25, 2018
Synopsis: The only thing missing from Aggie’s life…was Aggie. In the middle of nowhere lives middle aged Aggie, with her wheelchair bound companion Richard. As snow falls outside, Aggie tries desperately to remember the circumstances under which they met. As she plays through in her mind a series of possible scenarios, only to dismiss each as a false past, she inadvertently begins to reveal an increasingly dark portrait of her true self, leading to the unexpected and shocking reality of her relationship with Richard.

Memories Within Miss Aggie is director Gerard Damiano's magnum opus which ranks among one of the most unsettling psychological thrillers in the history of erotic cinema.

This will mark the first time this important piece of classic erotica has even been resented on blu-ray. It will hit the street on September 25th in a Limited Edition Slipcover Edition of just 1,000 copies.
