Suspense Mounts As
Paramount Home Entertainment Presents:

Premiering on DVD on May 28

HOLLYWOOD, April 17, 2002 - Paramount Home Entertainment delivers three dramatic thrillers - SORRY, WRONG NUMBER, SILVER BULLET and GRAVEYARD SHIFT -- to DVD on May 28. The classic story of a bedridden invalid who overhears a suspicious murder plot on the phone, SORRY, WRONG NUMBER stars Hollywood legend Barbara Stanwyck (Annie Oakley) in a critically acclaimed role. Stephen King's SILVER BULLET is the story of a heroic young boy who refuses to allow his small town to be terrorized by a killer werewolf, and GRAVEYARD SHIFT is a chilly Stephen King tale of an abandoned textile factory overtaken by rats.

Nominated for an Academy-Award® in 1949 for Best Actress, Barbara Stanwyck stars as Leona Stevenson in SORRY, WRONG NUMBER (1948). A rich heiress with a strained marriage to her trophy husband Henry (Burt Lancaster, The Unforgiven), Leona is confined to her bed and communicates mainly by telephone. One fateful night while trying to make a phone call, Leona overhears some men plotting what she later realizes could be her own murder. With her husband unexpectedly out of town for the weekend, the days become increasingly terrifying and the suspense mounts as Leona lies helpless and petrified in bed, fearing her own death and her inability to stop it. The DVD includes the theatrical trailer.

Based on the short novel "Cycle of the Werewolf" by Stephen King, SILVER BULLET (1985) is the story of a werewolf s assault on a small town. When something starts killing off the townsfolk in Tarker's Mills, the only person in town with the courage to stop this lurking menace is a 13-year old boy named Marty Coslow (Corey Haim, Lucas), who has been confined to a wheelchair since birth. After hitting the werewolf in the eye with a firecracker, Marty soon realizes the true identity of the werewolf and enlists the help of his Uncle Red (Gary Busey, Lost Highway) to make a silver bullet that will kill the beast for good.

Stephen King's GRAVEYARD SHIFT (1990) takes place in a dilapidated old textile factory situated between a river and a cemetery. Infested with rats of all shapes and sizes, the factory is about to be closed down for its many violations. But, when the sadistic mill foreman (Stephen Macht, Final Voyage) decides to re-open the mill and try to dispose of the rats on his own, a series of mysterious deaths occur. Hiring a crew to work during the "Graveyard Shift," the foreman has no idea what is in store for his rag-tag crew as they attempt to clean up the nightmarish, rat-infested lower levels of the decrepit building, working their way through the labyrinthine tunnels beneath the mill.
