New Digital Restoration!

In this Ozploitation cult classic, a young woman has been unknowingly groomed for sacrifice on her 19th birthday by her so-called family. With themes that stretch from Rosemary’s Baby to recent horror classics HEREDITARY and Get Out, ALISON’S BIRTHDAY is ripe for rediscovery.
