Of all the many slice-and-dice films that emerged in the early ’80s, few remain as gruesomely effective as The Burning – the notorious “video nasty” now finally unleashed on Blu-ray!

When an ill-advised prank misfires, summer camp caretaker Cropsy is committed to hospital with severe burns. Released after five years, hospital officials warn him not to blame the young campers who caused his hideous disfigurement. But no sooner is Cropsy back on the streets than he’s headed back to camp with a rusty pair of shears in hand, determined to exact his bloody revenge…

With standout gore effects courtesy of FX legend Tom Savini, The Burning proved too shocking for UK censors upon its original video release. Now, fully uncut and in High Definition, The Burning is ready to reclaim its place as the ultimate summer camp nightmare.

    Why is Amazon and Zavvi £24.99 yet Arrow’s own website is £17.99!

    • Frank Daenen Frank Daenen says:

      Shipment probably.

    • Paul Boland Paul Boland says:

      Price on Zavvi is now £17.99 amazon will eventually reduce both zavvi and amazon when they initially put up a listing on their websites its the msrp price and later is corrected to actual price amazon take longer to do this usually a week later

    • Andy Davies Andy Davies says:

      Hope so Paul but also seen they have not done that in past, l write to them and they say they are independent and if price reduces one gets lower price per preorder price guarantee but no guarantee they will lower price and will not price match.

    Will order it, not yet. It is limited to 4000. That’s not really limited.
