Published

on

On April 6th Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is dropping six little seen classics from Hammer Films onto DVD as part of the The Icons of Suspense Collection, and you can help dress this digital body for its own funeral!

From the Press Release
“On April 6th Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) opens the doors to the Hammer vault with the release of six films making their DVD debuts in The Icons of Suspense Collection Presents Hammer Films. Hammer Films made their name with monsters and vampires, but this third compilation from SPHE proves they could frighten the public without them. Topping the set is the uncut version of the futuristic classic These Are The Damned (aka The Damned, 1963), directed by the legendary Joseph Loseygr. Peter Cushing and Andre Morell match wits in Cash on Demand (1961). Oscar®-winning cinematographer Guy Green directed The Snorkel (1958), about a young girl who can’t convince anyone her stepfather is a murderer. The renowned Val Guest directed the startling psychodrama Stop Me Before I Kill! (aka The Full Treatment, 1960). Kerwin Matthews finds himself in the middle of a strange mother/daughter threesome in the Jimmy Sangster-written Maniac (1963). Plus, this ultimate rarity: Cyril Frankel’s astounding Never Take Candy from a Stranger (aka Never Take Sweets from a Stranger, 1960), a serious, and still horrifyingly timely, chiller about a small town terrorized by an elderly child molester. You won’t do better than this impeccable collection from the darkest corners of the Hammer imagination, which will be available for $24.96 SRP.”

Scream Factory Opens the Gate 2

Published

on

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.

Synopsis:
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

It’s taken three seasons, but “Fear The Walking Dead” has finally become as interesting as it should have been to begin with. If you lost hope after the first two seasons, we invite you to give the third a chance. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s a rotting step in the right direction.

Game? Than you’ll be happy to know that Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season comes to Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD on March 13!

In Season 3, our survivor families are brought together in the vibrant and violent ecotone of the U.S.-Mexico Border. With international lines done away with following the world’s end, our characters must attempt to rebuild not only society, but their families as well.

Special features including deleted and extended scenes and audio commentaries. Check out the artwork below.
