This never before released in high definition gem gets the full makeover from Shout! Factory. Originally conceived by ShowTime to battle HBO’s TALES FROM THE CRYPT, after the initial filming of three episodes had completed, the network decided it was not in their best interests to pursue more. The film then was sold off and released as an anthology with a short run on VHS. It has resurfaced a few spotty times over the years, but never in this fashion…

 

From The Website:

Two Masters of Horror – John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) and Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Lifeforce) – come together to create a chilling anthology of terror.BBCover72dpi

Alex Datcher (Passenger 57) stars as a woman working the late shift at “The Gas Station” while a killer is on the loose. Then, Stacy Keach (Road Games) can’t stand the thought of losing his “Hair” and he’ll do anything to keep it. And finally, Mark Hamill (Star Wars) portrays a baseball player that submits to an “Eye” transplant after he loses an eye in a car accident.

Featuring guest appearances by Deborah Harry, Sheena Easton, Twiggy, David Naughton (An American Werewolf In London), John Agar (Tarantula), David Warner (Time After Time) and cameos by Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper and Roger Corman, Body Bags delivers a fright-filled night of horror.
