When it comes to DVD releases, August 18th marks a week of threes. We get the third chapter in the Death Note series, the third season of "Dexter", a re-release of the first three Final Destination flicks, three Icons of Sci-Fi, and a trio of zombies.
Having been sick most of the past two weeks I've been behind on the news. For example, one of the most sought after made-for-television rarities from the 1970's is now available on DVD for the first time ever. I'm talking about The Bermuda Depths. And that's not the only new genre gem the Warner Archives Collection is now making available for order.
You know it's a weird week for DVD releases when the cream of the crop includes a couple of Blu-ray reissues, Fifties throwback horror/sci-fi hybrid Alien Trespass (read Creepy's review here), and Bigfoot-inspired The Wild Man of the Navidad, which garnered one of the higher ratings Foy's doled out in quite some time (review here).
Remember when it would take nearly a year for your favorite flicks to make the jump from theatres to home video? Long turn-around time seems to be a thing of the past, I tell ya!

More DVD news comes today, this time from Dark Sky Films as they bless us with a crazy piece of artwork and the specs from their upcoming DVD release of Deadgirl (review here).
And it also lacks a few other things too ... like good artwork and, according to our Albino Farm review, Albinos! What a world. WHAT A WORLD!
The artwork for Richard Stanley's long sought after film Hardware has finally surfaced, and we kind of dig the minimalist approach even though, once again, there was nothing wrong with the original artwork to begin with.
If you've upgraded your system to include a Blu-ray player, then this is a pretty good week for you as August 4th will see the release of a few old friends including Blade II, Hannibal Rising, and Mimic. On the newer end of the spectrum, we have sci-fi/horror hybrids Alien Uprising and The Mutant Chronicles along with watch-it-at-your-own-risk fare like Cravings, The Chaos Experiment, Nature's Grave, and the anthology Slices.
Viz Pictures announced today that the final chapter in its popular Death Note live action series, L, Change the World, directed by the legendary Hideo Nakata, will be hitting DVD on August 18th.
Rob Zombie's animated feature The Haunted World of El Superbeasto has gotten itself a face-lift in terms of artwork for its DVD and Blu-ray release on September 22nd, and we've got a look at it for you!
While walking the superhero-infested halls of the SDCC, we ran into Night of the Creeps director Fred Dekker and spoke to him about all things interesting! Including ....
If you missed Drag Me to Hell because it was rated PG-13 or some other lame-ass excuse, you now have a chance to atone for your sins when the movie hits DVD and Blu-ray this October just in time for Halloween!
