Arrow Video resurrects AMERICAN HORROR PROJECT VOLUME TWO (review)

Arrow Video's second volume of the AMERICAN HORROR PROJECT presents a trio of 1970s American gothic horrors.  In DREAM NO EVIL, orphan Grace grows into a troubled adult in search of her long-lost father who reacts violently to those who wish to steal her purity.  In DARK AUGUST, a New York adman goes back to basics in upstate Veromont but is haunted by a hex after a car accident involving a little girl.  In THE CHILD, young Rosalie's imaginary friends in the cemetery prove not so imaginary and very, very hungry.
