This Tuesday Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell finally hits home video. Despite the flick's anemic box office returns, it was one of the best damned horror films of the year, and you now have NO EXCUSES not to should see it!
We have a bumper crop of DVD and Blu-ray releases this week what with Trick 'r Treat FINALLY coming home along with Ghost House Pictures' four-pack of The Thaw, Offspring, Seventh Moon, and The Children. And that's just the beginning!
Even though everyone's all about what's hitting home video in October for Halloween, the good folks over at IFC gave us a look at what they're dishing out in terms of horror and thrillers for the month of November!
This week sees a couple of re-releases on Blu-Ray (Snakes on a Plane and 2003's Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake), a few unknowns (Bloodwine, Farmhouse, Flesh, TX, and Nightmare), "real life" compilations Haunted Histories and Paranormal State: Demonic Investigations, and lots more; but the star of show is without a doubt The Hills Run Red.
Remember that cruel April Fool's Day joke from last April? You know, the one about a director's cut of Mimic coming to DVD? Bingo. I'll never forget the confusion shown by Andrew Kasch when it seemed to be a prank, as he said he watched as people worked on it. Relax Andrew ... your sanity is saved. It's coming all right, along with Cronos, courtesy of Criterion.
Looking for new and better ways to utilize your iPod? Want to take some classic horror on the road with you? Then today's your lucky day as Starz Digital Media has announced some of its content distributed on DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment is now available on iTunes for sale and rental.
You guys asked for it, and we listened. Now, due to popular demand, a limited number of tickets to attend the first annual Reaper Awards are available to the general public.
Man, it has been a long time since I've heard anyone even mention the movie Silent Scream. It seems as if it's been lost a good long time. Thankfully a new DVD label known as Scorpion Releasing is changing all that, and the DVD will be hitting home in November! Hell yeah!
Never mind that whole "we are descended from monkeys" business, we're talking about evil here, folks, and as anyone here on the net can tell you, that means serious business! Especially when pertaining to flesh-eating zombies who are out to ravage the planet.
A handful of rather bizarre DVD re-releases are on tap this week for some reason including Evil Remains, Shallow Ground, and Satan's Little Helper; but at least they're accompanied by several new films, a box set of the entire Friday the 13th: The Series, a twin-pack of Carnival of Souls in both color and black & white, and Shaun of the Dead and Godzilla on Blu-ray!
Fans who missed Park Chan-wook's vampire opus Thirst (review here) when it played in a limited capacity in theatres won't have to wait very long for the film's DVD release. In fact, it's right around the corner.
This is a freaking GREAT season for horror fans. It's true that every fall sees the release of some great genre titles, but with films like The Stepfather, Messiah of Evil (making its first non-budget DVD debut), and, of course, Hardware receiving quality releases, it's truly a cause for celebration. Today Severin Films is attempting to whet our palates with a snippet from the 60-minute documentary offered on their Hardware disc...
We first heard about No Right Turn last March, just prior to its debut at the CPH:PIX film fest in Copenhagen. Things must have gone well for writer/director David Noel Bourke and crew there because they recently landed a DVD release date of December 1st for the US and Canada.
I lost count of exactly how many Silent Night, Deadly Night films there were. Let's see ... there was the classic original flick that caused quite a stir. So much so that they barely filmed any original footage for its sequel Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 and things just sort of went batshit crazy from there. Bill Moseley was involved, there were brain pans, killer toys, Egyptian cults ... you name it. Lionsgate announced today that they will be bringing three of those crazy-ass sequels home in one shiny three-disc box set.
It isn't typical for an announcement of a DVD's release date being pushed back to be considered "good news", but in the case of Matt Pizzolo's episodic illustrated film Godkiller, the filmmaker couldn't be more ecstatic. So, what gives?
