More high definition goodness is on the way courtesy of Lionsgate, as we’re finally, finally, getting the insanity that is Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive in glorious high definition! Oh yeah, and two other flicks no one really cares about.
Scary Movie 2 Blu-ray Disc
Scary Movie 3: UNRATED Blu-ray Disc
Audiences will laugh twice as hard this fall as Lionsgate debuts two hilarious Miramax films on Blu-ray Disc – Scary Movie 2 and Scary Movie 3: UNRATED. Presented for the very first time in 1080P High Definition and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, both horror parodies star two of comedy’s leading ladies — Anna Faris (The House Bunny) and Regina Hall (King’s Ransom). Available on September 20th, each Blu-ray Disc is loaded with an assortment of special features including deleted scenes, featurettes and audio commentaries.
Scary Movie 2
The follow-up spoof picks up from where the original Scary Movie satire left off, taking aim at supernatural thrillers like The Exorcist and Stigmata, among others. This time around, Marlon and Shawn Wayans (White Chicks) star as Shorty and Ray who are both tricked by their professor into visiting a haunted house as part of a school project. Cindy (Faris) and Brenda (Hall) join their peers for the “project.” When things start getting messy, the gang must work together to find a way to capture the ghostly menace. Tori Spelling (TV’s “Beverly Hills 90210”) and Chris Elliott (There’s Something About Mary) also star in this wild and zany sequel.
Scary Movie 3: UNRATED
After surviving the hijinks of the first two films, Cindy Campbell (Faris) is back with a new crew, lampooning horror hits such as The Ring, Signs and The Others. A mysterious videotape is circulating around town, and whoever views the tape has seven days left to live. News reporter Cindy Campbell is next on the list, and tries to work out a way to prevent her death. Meanwhile, crop circles have also been appearing in the local farm, and Cindy suspects that both mysteries are linked. But can she make the connection before the world ends? Thrillers, blockbusters and pop culture get their best goosing yet in this funnier and more explicit unrated version!

Dead Alive Blu-ray Disc
One of the goriest fright films of all-time makes its high definition debut this fall as Lionsgate releases Dead Alive on Blu-ray Disc. The early film from Oscar® winning director Peter Jackson (Best Director, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, 2003) is a cult classic with horror fans. Hysterical, outrageous and filled with bloodthirsty zombies, the film hits Blu-ray just in time for its 20th anniversary.
A mama’s boy who has the unfortunate task of looking after his aging, evil mother, Lionel (Timothy Balme, Jack Brown Genius) believes his dreams have come true when he meets the love of his life. While out to sabotage her son’s happiness, his Mum (Elizabeth Moody, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) is accidently bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey, which turns her into a flesh-eating zombie. Lionel is forced to put his relationship on hold to stop his undead mother, and the rest of the town that she’s infected before it’s too late.
Pricing: Blu-ray Disc – $19.98
