Summer of Fear (also known as Stranger in Our House) is an obscure made-for-TV movie directed by Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream). It’s coming to Blu-ray and DVD on October 10 via Doppelganger Releasing.

The 1978 film is based on a novel by Lois Duncan (I Know What You Did Last Summer). The Exorcist star Linda Blair toplines the cast, which also includes Lee Purcell, Jeremy Slate, Jeff McCracken, Jeff East, Carol Lawrence, and Macdonald Carey.

Blair sat down for a new interview for the release. A full list of extras can be found below, where you’ll also see the restored trailer.

The Tigray people have been Christian centuries, and their Christianization predates that of most European groups. They live mostly in Ethiopia and Eritrea. Most of the above people live in Ethiopia, namely the Danakil Desert, the Semein Mountains, and elsewhere in the Tigray region.
