DVD and Blu-ray Releases: February 6, 2018

Published

on

Welcome back, everyone.  I told you our lists would begin to pick up a bit and here we are.  February is coming in with a bang this year with a pretty decent list this week.  There are a lot of newer titles this week, so let’s get down to business and get a couple of classics out of the way.

Mill Creek is bringing us two titles this week.  The first is a collection called Shadow Stalkers.  The second title is Christopher Lee’s 100 Years of Horror.  You can read about both titles here.

Up next is Inoperable, starring Danielle Harris.  I liked the idea of this movie, but it seemed to last a lot longer than it really did.  I know someone out there will enjoy it though.

A lot of you have probably been frothing at the mouth for the release of Victor Crowley.  You can check out a new trailer for it here.

Zombie fans, there is yet another Day of the Dead movie dropping this week.  It’s called Day of the Dead: Bloodline.  I have yet to see it myself, but I’m sure we can all guess the nature of the movie to some extent.

People who enjoyed the classic Sleepaway Camp might be interested in picking up Family Possessions.  Felissa Rose stars and we swear she’s anatomically correct.

The lovely Bella Thorne is up next in Keep Watching.  We have an exclusive clip you can check out.  Maybe it’s up your alley, maybe not.

There are a bunch of other newer titles to check out as well. Some of them include Welcome to Willits, Living Among Us, Unhinged and House Of Demons.  The rest are listed below.

Whatever your pleasure is this week, pleasant viewing.  We’ll see you again next week.

Yes, Deadline just announced that the third entry in the massively successful Jurassic World series is going to be roaring into theaters come June 11, 2012.

Not only that but the film has already snagged a screenwriter in the form of Pacific Rim: Uprising co-writer Emily Carmichael, who will co-write along with Trevorrow.

The third entry’s script will be based off a story by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, who wrote the first two Jurassic World films together, and Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow will return to executive produce, along with producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley.

“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” said Trevorrow in a statement. “I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to Fallen Kingdom, and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”

There have been no casting confirmations just yet, but we will let you know as soon as we hear anything further! Are you excited for Jurassic World 3? Let us know below!

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly.

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission.

Jordan Peele’s Next Genre Movie Begins Shooting Later This Year

Published

on

I’m pretty sure that there aren’t many Jordan Peele haters out there.

The man is not only a brilliant comedian – as showcased in multiple seasons of his sketch comedy series “Key & Peele” – but the fact that he has earned Oscar nominations, along with boatloads of cash, for writing and directing his debut horror feature, Get Out, makes Peele damn near untouchable.

It is with this in mind that not only the horror community but the entire world are holding their breath in anticipation of Peele’s next film.

Well, today we have news on just that as Peele recently told THR that his next film will begin shooting later this year.

“I am currently writing it, and I’ll direct for Universal this year,” he said. “I’m just trying to entertain myself again.”

While the writer-director is being tighhtlipped about the details of his new film, he did tell the site that the new movie will tonally resemble Get Out.

“One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun genre of intrigue is my favorite,” he said. “That’s my sweet spot. So I think tonally it should resemble Get Out. That said, I want to make a completely different movie. I want to address something different than race in the next one.”

Again, I don’t think there are many people out there that aren’t intensely curious about what Peele cooks up next, so we will make sure to keep you guys up-to-date as word pours in. Until then let us know what you think of Jordan Peele below!

Get Out is nominated for multiple Oscars this year, and we will find out just which categories it wins come March 4, 2018.

BUY GET OUT HERE!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.

Battle of the Hell Priests: Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s Idea for Hellraiser: Judgment Sequel

Published

on

I think it’s safe to say that many of us were pleasantly surprised by director Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser: Judgment. The film was a fun blast of twisted horror, and Tunnicliffe’s performance as The Auditor was a killer addition to the Hellraiser lore.

But has the director thought about a sequel to his film? Not during shooting evidently.

I had no concept of a sequel, a spinoff, nothing at all,” the director told Screen Rant. “People suggest, ‘Oh, you’re trying to write a sequel for The Auditor and stuff like that.’ It’s like, ‘Are you f***ng kidding?’ I was just trying to swim to the other bank and survive without being eaten by the sharks.”

But now that filming is long over with, Tunnicliffe says he does have some ideas for a sequel.

I have thought about it afterward, what I think would be great fun,” he says. “Maybe a new Cenobite ruler comes in or takes over, and a new head priest comes in, and it’s not working out and clearly this person, this Cenobite’s not doing a great job. And underhandedly, The Auditor is leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for the guy who is Pinhead to find his way back, and he gets pulled in. And then it’s like, he turns up, and it’s like a showdown between the newly born Pinhead and this guy who’s taken over his mantle… we do a bit of a standoff, and it’s like a battle of the Hell priests.

Battle of the Hell priests? Pardon the pun, but Hell, yeah! Would you like to see Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser sequel? Let us know below!

Hellraiser: Judgment stars Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, Jeff Fenter, Helena Grace Donald, Grace Montie, John Gulager, Diane Goldner, Heather Langenkamp, and Paul T. Taylor as Pinhead.

The film is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital.

Special features:

  • Deleted and extended scenes
  • Gag reel

Synopsis:
The dreaded Pinhead returns in the next terrifying chapter of the classic Hellraiser series. Three detectives trying to stop a diabolical serial killer are sucked into a maze of otherworldly horror, where hellish denizens including the Auditor, the Assessor, and the Jury await to pass judgment.
