It’s a good week for Blu-ray player owners as a batch of old favorites is being re-released on the format including Darkman, The Stepfather (the original), Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance Trilogy, and our pick of the week, Supernatural: The Complete First Season.
Also bowing on regular DVD on June 15th are Arnold Cassius’ critically panned Animals; an uncut, uncensored, and fully restored version of 1973’s Horror Hospital that includes a revealing new commentary with producer Richard Gordon; two Japanese horror tales, Roommate and Slaughter Island; and a bloody psychological thriller starring husband and wife duo Corey and Susie Feldman entitled Terror Inside.
Our *almost* pick of the week is the unflinchingly brutal The Horseman, but honestly, it’s much more a dark, violent drama than a true horror movie although fans of the genre will certainly find much to love, including an amazing performance by Peter Marshall as an ordinary man pushed to the brink by his grief and thirst for revenge.
A few other treats await for fans of double features, The Howling sequels III, V, and VI, and anime. Happy shopping!
