Never let it be said that we here at Dread Central don't take care of our readers when it comes to contests. What do we have for you today? "Only" the massive six-disc Blu-ray set known as the Alien Anthology!
Every year the After Dark Horrorfest terrifies audiences (or at least tries to) with a crop of indie flicks that would normally never see a theatrical release. Up until now said movies have only been available on DVD, but word has just come they're headed to Blu-ray in special double feature editions this January!
Daniel Stamm's The Last Exorcism (review here) was a late summer hit with horror fans looking to raise a little hell, and now the flick is coming home to DVD and Blu-ray in grand fashion! From the Press Release:
You know we are nearing the end of October when the pace of horror DVD title releases starts slowing down. I guess the powers that be banked on everyone buying horror DVDs several weeks before Halloween. Is that true? Are you folks doing just that, or are you only now starting your Halloween viewing party planning?
We said it before, and we'll say it again. Piranha 3D was the most fun we had in theatres in years. It was everything we wanted ... violent, sexy, and deliciously sleazy. It was so good in fact that Condit, Debi, and I stayed in the theatre for back-to-back screenings. We just couldn't help ourselves. Now the flick is coming home.
You know them. You love them. But you don't want them attaching themselves to your head. Well, maybe you do. You kinky bitches! Time to load up, pack heavy, and start blasting!
The number of home video releases on October 19th is not as abundant as in recent weeks, and fewer re-released titles means those that are available are much more special. In this batch one Adrien Brody flick competes with another, and at least two independent horror titles are making a splash. Two beloved classic films return in Blu-ray where one is supplemented by a documentary treatment of it.
We already knew Vampires Suck: Extended Bite Me Edition is coming from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on November 30, but now we've got the list of special features and a look at its official cover art. From the Press Release:

While I personally thought that director Christopher Smith’s impeccable filmmaking run took a stumble with Triangle, he came right back on form with Sean Bean in his newest release, Black Death, which lands on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK in a scant couple of weeks courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Read on for the pack shots and trailer!
Another week in October, another bounty crop of horror DVDs and Blu-rays. This week we have home entertainment from recent theatrical releases of nightmares of the mind as well as re-releases of classic and campy horror, all with boatloads of extras.
