Here’s what’s on the chopping block for August 1st, 2006…
Dracula, Prisoner of Frankenstein (1970)
Directed by Jess Franco
Ah, more Franco-y goodness for your purchasing pleasures. Made right at the height of the Spanish director’s most creative period, which I believe lasted about two weeks (I kid), this outing sees Dr. Frankenstein devising a scheme to return Dracula to life for his own nefarious reasons, and soon the once-peaceful countryside is awash with seductive vampire nymphs, werewolves, and a man-made creation out to destroy a creature of the night.

I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006)
Directed by Sylvain White
If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering why the hell someone felt there was a need for yet another teen-focused slasher about a fisherman with a hook hand. I wish I could use my powers of horror webmasterness and answer you, but sadly there is no clear reason… money would be most likely, however. This story follows some kids who accidentally kill someone on the fourth of July, cover it up, and begin dying one by one at the hands of a sadistic fisherman. Fun filled. Check out Creepy’s DVD review for more. A box set of all three films is also due out today, which you know you’re going to get. Buy it here!
Severed: Forest of the Dead (2005)
Directed by Carl Bessai
Damn those logging companies, always trying to muck up our forests with their chemicals and their new-fangled machines. In the case of Severed, they go just a bit further than they have before when their genetic experiment goes horribly wrong and causes a group of young environmentalists to turn into ravenous, meat-crazed zombies. How much you want to bet they were all vegans beforehand? Gotta love irony. Buy it here!
