Seizure is a 1974 horror-thriller film. It is the directorial debut of Oliver Stone, who also co-wrote the screenplay.


Horror writer Edmund Blackstone (Jonathan Frid) sees his recurring nightmare come to chilling life one weekend as one by one, his friends and family are killed by three villains: the Queen of Evil (Martine Beswick), a dwarf named Spider (Hervé Villechaize), and a giant scar-faced strongman called Jackal (Henry Judd Baker).



Star Mary Woronov would later claim that one of the film's producers was gangster Michael Thevis, who partially bankrolled the film in an attempt to launder money, as he was under investigation by the FBI.


The film was released theatrically in the United States by Cinerama Releasing Corporation.

The film was released on VHS by various video companies in the 1980s including Prism Entertainment. A DVD and Blu-ray release for the film is scheduled for release from Scorpion Releasing on September 9, 2014.[1]
