DVD and Blu-ray Releases: October 24, 2017

Published

Annabelle Creation Blu-ray

Greetings again, friends.  We have a slightly slimmer list this week compared to the past couple of months.  Blood Feast and The Barn may have already dropped on the 10th, but in case you didn’t see them then, check for them now.

Speaking of Blood Feast, there are a decent amount of classics this week.  Reaching from 1990’s Night Angel all the way back to 1932’s The Old Dark House, there’s a pretty good potpourri of favorites from yesteryear.

In terms of newer releases, this week brings us the Blu-ray release of Annabelle: Creation, and the DVD release for Aliens: Zone Of Silence.  Probably the movie I am most interested in seeing this week would be Dave Made A Maze.  It looks quirky as hell and you can check out our review of it here.

There are also a couple of throwbacks to 2009 in the form of The Uninvited Blu-ray as well as the DVD release of Evil In The Time Of Heroes, featuring Billy Zane.

Check out the rest of the list below and we will see you next week for the big day.  As always, pleasant viewing.

When her vehicle suddenly breaks down just outside the zone, Morgan must traverse the desert alone, enduring intense heat in the daytime and menacing coyotes at night. She eventually locates Hal s campsite and finds a kit filled with memory cards from his camera. The recordings reveal a series of strange noises, eerie lights in the sky, gravitational anomalies, and an extraterrestrial presence in a nearby mountain range. Convinced aliens were responsible for her brother s disappearance, Morgan must decide whether to flee with her life or attempt to expose the otherworldly beings once and for all.

Blood Feast (1963) (2-Disc Special Edition)

Starring:

William Kerwin, Mal Arnold, Connie Mason

Synopsis:

The filmography of late movie maverick Herschell Gordon Lewis brims with the mad, macabre, and just downright bizarre. But perhaps the most unhinged of all his directorial efforts, and certainly the most influential, must surely be his original gore-fest Blood Feast the first ever splatter movie.  Dorothy Fremont is looking to throw a party unlike any other, and she gets just that when she hires the decidedly sinister Fuad Ramses to cater the event. Promising to provide her guests with an authentic Egyptian feast, Ramses promptly sets about acquiring the necessary ingredients the body parts of nubile young women!  Featuring a host of stomach-churning gore gags including the infamous tongue sequence and much more nastiness besides, Herschell Gordon Lewis Blood Feast more than lives up to its name and remains essential viewing for any self-respecting splatter fan.

The Corpse Grinders (1972)

Starring:

Sean Kenney, Monika Kelly, Sanford Mitchell

Synopsis:

The Lotus Cat Food Company has hit major financial trouble and is on the verge of closing, until the owners realize that rather than paying for meat, they can use bodies from the local graveyard to fill their tins. As their latest product hits the shelves, it’s revealed to have an unintentional result: every cat that eats it is transformed into a bloodthirsty brute with an unending hunger for human flesh! 

Ted V. Mikels’ (The Doll Squad) legendary cult favorite, The Corpse Grinders, is a horror classic, chock full of jaw dropping twists, mind boggling surprises, and a self-aware sense of humor that became one of Ted’s trademarks. Co-written by Arch Hall Sr. (Eegah) & Joseph Cranston (The Crawling Hand), and colorfully photographed by Mikels himself, this drive-in mainstay is proudly presented for the first time on Blu-ray from Vinegar Syndrome, freshly restored in 2k from recently discovered negative elements!

Evil in the Time of Heroes (2009)

Starring:

Billy Zane

Flash forward to the present day when Athens is once again plagued by the undead, and a ragtag band of human survivors is on the run. Among them are a taxi driver who seems to be immortal, a pair of hot-blooded soldiers with some serious chemistry, and a doctor who can t stand to get his shoes dirty while stomping zombie heads. Meanwhile, the elusive hero is back — but zombies are only half the problem. With less than a day before Greece is bombed to contain the zombie virus, it s a race against time for the remaining humans. A highly cinematic bloodbath that s just as clever as it is gory, Evil In The Time Of Heroes has it all: lighting-fast action, realistically terrifying zombies, and a healthy dose of fun.

Exclusive: Terror Universal Dare You to Look Through the Mirrors

Published

on

Alright horror metalheads, it’s time to raise those devil horns and get ready for some Terror Universal! On hand we’ve got the exclusive video premiere for the track “Through the Mirrors”, which comes from the band’s album Make Them Bleed. Directed by Wacy Jahn, the video mixes band performance with the hallucinations and troubles of a man who clearly has some issues going on.

Jahn tells us about making the video, saying, “As a director, I was given the freedom to give my visual interpretation of what the song meant to me personally. The inner self that tortures the outer self into being something different no matter the cost. Now mix a twist of insanity into the recipe and you get the “Through the Mirrors” official Terror Universal music video.

Band member Massacre adds, “I am very pumped to be releasing the “Through The Mirrors” video, as this track is one of my favorite songs on our new album ‘Make Them Bleed’. This song showcases many of Terror Universal’s diverse sounds, as it’s brutally heavy, and also has a very anthemic and memorable chorus.

Made up of current and past members of Machine Head, Ill Niño, Soulfly, and Upon A Burning Body, Terror Universal is a metal band dedicated to combining their love of all things heavy with their passion for horror. Make Them Bleed also features guest appearances from bassists John Moyer (Disturbed) and Tony Campos (Static-X).

You can buy Make Them Bleed on Bandcamp.

The Sinking City Update Dives Into the Cthulhu Mythos That Drives the Game

Published

on

If you’ve been following our coverage of Frogwares’ The Sinking City, you’ll know that it’s probably my most anticipated game not just of the year but of a long, long time! An open world game that lives in the aesthetic and atmosphere of H.P. Lovecraft? Consider me 100% hooked! This game ticks all the boxes of my love of horror and my love of gaming.

A new update video has been released and this one goes right into the ways that H.P. Lovecraft and his works directly influenced the game, the developers and the story players will experience. On top of that, it also goes into how Lovecraft’s themes inspired the creators at Frogwares to forge their own paths and create their own mythology and terror. It’s a wonderful video because we get to see these people take an established universe and build upon it with reverence, respect, and passion.

Seriously, if The Sinking City isn’t on your radar, you’re going to be missing out when it’s released.

Synopsis:
The Sinking City interprets and develops the themes that Lovecraft explored: the fear of monsters and the unknown, the search for occult truths and madness. In the game, players step into the shoes of a private detective investigating the disappearance of an expedition to the imaginary town of Oakmont, Massachusetts. Oakmont is a city experiencing unprecedented flooding due to supernatural forces, leaving a large portion of the city submerged. Secret societies, dangers, intrigues and monstrous creatures will stand in your way…
