Not a bad selection of horror DVDs hitting on Tuesday, January 20th, 2009. The question is if any of them are actually worth getting.
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.

A few weeks back myself and some of the East Coast Dread crew, including Nomad and the fantastic Heather Buckley, hit up the New York Comic Con to get our horror mugs filled to the brim with info.
A lot of video came out of it, most of which features Heather chatting up horror celebs and asking some damn fine questions, but today we’re showing off our first finished piece: a chat with the writer and director of the upcoming animated film Igor!

has uploaded several photos of the toyline associated with The Weinstein Company’s CGI film Igor. I haven't really paid this new cartoon much mind, but it looks to have a pretty interesting casts for the voice acting (“Horror Clix Get a New Line
