The Weekly Wrap-Up: November 15-21, 2008

I couldn't tell you how long it has been since I've been in a comic book store, though I used to be an avid comic collector years ago.

Video Clips From Parts Unknown

What the hell is From Parts Unknown? It’s an indie film from Australia we first told you about back in March and haven’t mentioned since. Don’t you keep up on anything? Sheesh.

Finally Four Flies on Grey Velvet Comes Home!

Were you beginning to think you’d never be able to complete your Dario Argento DVD collection? I know I sure as hell was; almost every single one of the man’s movies has been released on DVD, sometimes more than once, save for one: Four Flies on Grey Velvet. Until now!

Blitzkrieg for Christmas

I know the simple act of waiting for the new Nazisploitation movie Blitzkrieg: Escape From Stalag 69 has been hard on a lot of you (I get very emotional e-mails on an almost daily basis exemplifying just how hard) so I’m glad we can finally offer you some relief.

Final Horrorfest Title Announced!

Perkins' 14 Poster Winner!

Wow, I have to say I’m pretty impressed; the poster you see below for Perkins' 14 was the winning entry in Massify’s poster design competition. It was designed by a guy named Justin and, as you can tell, is about as retro as they come. I have to admit it; I love it!

Igor Coming Home This January

It didn’t do any kind of business to speak of at the box office, so I guess it’s not surprising that MGM isn’t dumping a lot of effort into the DVD release of Igor. MGM announced today that the disc will be out on January 20th and won’t have a helluva lot on it.

We’re trying to confirm things as we speak, but there are some rumors flying around right now, starting out at Fangoria, that Universal may be moving the release date for Wolfman from April, 2009, to sometime in the fall.

Splinter Soundtrack Now Available

You may not remember, but one of the six awards Toby Wilkins’ Splinter took home from Screamfest LA was for Best Musical Score, and I have to concur; the music in this film is very, very cool. You don’t have to take my word for it, though, because now you can get the Splinter soundtrack for yourself!
