First Scream Addicts Podcast Gets In Your Ear



Scream Addicts

What? What’s that? More “Scream Addicts” today?! In addition to this week’s final episode of our video show, today also marks the debut of the “Scream Addicts” podcast, featuring your Scream Team tackling this week’s topics at length and chatting about recent news and our “Horror Firsts” at a relaxed pace – without the ticking clock we’re saddled with on our web series (if we don’t bring every ep in at under ten minutes, the producer subjects us to a series of pointy, rusty traps that’d make Jigsaw wince).

So join us as we ramble on about the genre we love and the influences that shaped us into the horror-crazed ghouls we are today. Here’s hoping you enjoy!

And, as with every installment, please be sure to jump into the discussion below! Use the comments section to chime in with your thoughts on the news we covered and with your own first experiences with horror and how it impacted your life.

And a very special thanks to audio wizard Jason Miller for providing the intro/outro music for our podcast.

The Executioners Knock on the Wrong Door! Get Axed!



Ever since Funny Games I’ve been kind of soured on home invasion flicks. There have been some great ones, but seeing an entire family cower before to white gloved youths proved a bit too unbelievable for me. I wanted to see the family fight back. One thing’s for sure, judging by the cover of The Executioners someone has picked a feisty group of folks to pick on. Interest piqued.

Look for the flick to be arriving on DVD, Digital, and On Demand March 27 from Lionsgate.

Directed and written by Giorgio Serafini, the film stars Jemma Dallender, Natalie Burn, Rachel Rosenstein and Justin Fischer.

When four friends go on a retreat to a secluded lakeside cabin, they soon realize they’re not alone. Masked intruders try to take them hostage, but as they fight back, the friends get a taste for something more than the will to survive. Will their fate be as victim or executioner?

Ichi The Killer Carves a Path of Destruction on Blu-ray!



FINALLY! There’s a headline I’ve been waiting to write forever. The cult classic Ichi The Killer is getting set to hit Blu-ray this March and we have a quick rundown of what you can expect!

Look for the new digitally restored special edition of the flick debuting on Blu-ray March 20 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Special features include an audio commentary with director Takashi Miike and manga artist/writer Hideo Yamamoto and a still gallery.

Takashi Miike’s ICHI THE KILLER has endured as one of the most influential pieces of genre filmmaking of the last two decades, and now it returns in a stunning all-new digitally restored special edition approved by Miike himself. This visceral, bloody, and often hilarious film follows Kakihara (Tadanobu Asano), a notoriously sadistic yakuza enforcer whose search for his boss’ killer brings him into the orbit of a demented costumed assassin known as Ichi (Nao Ohmori).

Scream Factory Opens the Gate 2



There are few films more beloved around DC HQ than Tibor Takacs’ 1987 monster-filled classic The Gate. It’s top to bottom fun featuring stop-motion beasties and a cute-as-a-button young Stephen Dorff, and that’s only a couple of reasons why the flick just rules.

Scream Factory (bless their hearts) just announced that its sequel, Gate II, will finally be getting a Blu-ray release; and we have your details and artwork right here.

Look for the flick starring original The Gate star Louis Tripp on February 27, 2018.

This supercharged sequel to the horror classic The Gate comes alive with unearthly creatures, heart-stopping action, and incredible special effects. Gate II picks up again with Terry, the teenage sorcerer who summons beings from the other side whose powers can be used to grant any wish. Unfortunately, before the Gate closes again, a “minion” – a tiny disciple of Satan himself – manages to slip through to our dimension. When the creature is kidnapped – all hell breaks loose.

Special Features:

  • NEW 2K scan of the interpositive
  • NEW Return to the Nightmare – A Look Back at GATE II – featuring interviews with director Tibor Takacs, screenwriter Michael Nankin, and special visual effects creator Randall William Cook
  • NEW From the Depths – an interview with make-up effects artist Craig Reardon
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Video Promo and Video Store Contest Promo
  • Still Gallery
