There's only a handful of horror DVD's coming out this week (including yet another release of Night of the Living Dead, this time as part of Cinema Insomnia's "Slime Line"), but a few of them seem to hold some promise.
Finally the red band theatrical trailer has come for George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead, but honestly? We think it could use a bit more time in the oven as it's pretty tame. Come on, guys! We need red in our red bands!
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We know. We totally got the shaft Stateside for our Paranormal Activity Blu-ray release (though we're fairly certain a double dip will be coming) as the UK has a mega edition (story here) coming on March 22nd courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment. If we can't have our own set of extras, at least we can watch a bit of theirs on YouTube.
Lots of Horror Hitting Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD: The New Daughter, The Stepfather, Uncle Sam, and The Dorm that Dripped Blood
Things are looking pretty sweet home video-wise over the next few months as some announcements have come out over the past several days, and rather than write up a separate story for each one, we figured that we'd bring it all here for you in one gore-soaked package!
In just a few days, March 15th to be exact, the next entry into George A. Romero's legendary Dead franchise will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD in the UK from Optimum Home Entertainment. You know, the place across the pond with the stacked home video releases as opposed to the lovely bare bones crap we get here in the States (still angry about Paranormal Activity).
It's more in the thriller vein than pure horror, but we thought our readers would still like to know about special effects guru Robert Kurtzman's latest directorial project, Deadly Impact, which debuts on unrated DVD April 20th from MGM Home Entertainment.
We've just gotten our hands on the latest trailer and DVD artwork for Lionsgate's upcoming chiller Cold Storage (hitting stores May 4th), and we figured we'd play nice by sharing!
Some more home video news for you, as we've just received word that Michael Cuesta's Tell Tale (review here) will be crashing onto home video on May 25th from Vivendi Entertainment (though as with The Collector, if you head to Blockbuster, you can rent it now).
Horror is an expansive genre that can cover a lot of avenues, proving that evil can be lurking anywhere. Including within the Amish, who, if prompted, can and will churn the living shit out of you!
A lot of collections hit store shelves this week including three horror sets, a Sherlock Holmes four-pack, three sci-fi quartets, and a package from 20th Century Fox consisting of The Fly, The Omen, and Independence Day in honor of "75 years of award-winning drama". In addition, fans of the series Poltergeist: The Legacy finally get Season 2 on disc, albeit in the form of an on demand recorded DVD-R.
In anticipation of the limited UK theatrical run of Lawrence Gough's Salvage beginning on March 19th, followed a few days later (on the 22nd) by a DVD release, Revolver Entertainment has provided an updated trailer for the film. Along with playing in the cinema, Salvage (UK DVD review here) will be available via Sky Box Office, iTunes, FilmFlex, and LOVEFilM on the 19th as well. Hopefully the previously reported July 6th date will hold firm for the US DVD. Synopsis:
Ready to get bitch slapped? Writer/director Rick Jacobson's Bitch Slap is gearing up for a March 2nd DVD release, and if you've been chomping at the bit to watch some smokin' hot chicks kick some ass, you might want to check out the pre-release event to tide you over.
Prepare to have your head pummeled with a nice big slab of retribution, Aussie style, as Steven Kastrissios’ grim and brutal The Horseman (review here) will be beating its way to DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on March 1st.
Recently we had a chance to preview the new horror flick Meadowoods (expect a review soon), and we're pretty excited about it. The movie is friggin' intense. As we do with all things that we dig, we've gotten our hands on some more exclusive stuff for you! These goodies are coming your way in the fashion of a clip, the official synopsis, and the first DVD news!
It was just this past July that Japanese FX maestro Tomoo Haraguchi (Sakuya Yokaiden, Kibikichi) was preparing to bring us some old school giant monster action with Death Kappa. Almost no news since. Not even a trailer. No word on a Japanese release date. Nothing.
