DVD Release List: Hill Comes Home



Here’s your release list menu for Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006…

Demonic on DVD (click to see it bigger!)Demonic (2005)
Directed by Johannes Roberts

Ah, those angels. You spend a little time in the presence of the mightiest Holy One (no, not Captain Crunch), and you think you’re immune to all those human emotions like lust and hatred. Then you spend some time on earth, become infected with our unusually tasty bit of “disease”, and next thing you know, you’re banished from heaven, living in a forest and having to fight off Tom Savini and some horny teenagers. See what happens when you get too big for your britches? Check out Melissa’s review here, and buy it here!

Invasion Series on DVD (click to see it bigger!)Invasion: The Complete Series

If I may take a moment and remark at how weird it is that shows are coming to DVD so quickly these days. Don’t get me wrong, I dig it, as it’s the best way to enjoy a TV show without that whole hassle of waiting for weeks at a time, it’s just they’re out there so damn quick now… “Invasion” dealt with the aftermath of a huge huuricane, and how a Florida Park Ranger and his family dealt with some very strange occurrences that followed it, including glowing water creatures and some major personality switches. Check out our review of the series right here for more! Buy it here!

The Lonely Ones on DVD (click to see it bigger!)The Lonely Ones (2006)
Directed by David Michael Quiroz, Jr.

All right, stop me if you’ve heard this one before; the story here follows nine students (I would assume you’d be stopping me right about now) who go off for a weekend “vacation” (read: bang fest), and when they get to their cabin in the woods (yep, I’m still going), they encounter some sort of evil or another that twists their reality all around and makes them do bad stuff. Or they die. Something like that, I’m not really sure. The point is, it doesn’t sound interesting at all. Buy it here!

Satan's Playground on DVD (click to see it bigger!)Satan’s Playground (2006)
Directed by Dante Tomaselli

Tomaselli’s third film (following Desecration and Horror), and he has still yet to impress me with anything other than his good taste in cinematographers. Though he insisted he was attempting to make a more straightforward horror film with this one, he’s still got that addiction to “nightmare logic”, which means he can do whatever he wants and it doesn’t have to make sense. And believe me, not much of this movie does. Read my DVD review of it for more. Buy it here!

Sea of Fear on DVD (click to see it bigger!)Sea of Fear (2005)
Directed by Andrew Schuth

Seriously, how do you hide a series of murders when you’re on a goddamn sailboat? I know they make them big these days, but could you really get away with killing over and over again enough to satisfy the plot of a whodunit? That enigma will be answered when you sit down with Sea of Fear, another title from Lionsgate which likely has a much better cover than the film inside deserves. Friends on a sailboat one by one start dropping like flies, and it’s either someone on the boat or the mysterious vessel following them. Ohhhh, sounds tense. But it’s not. Read Uncle Creepy’s review for the reasons. Buy it here!

Silent Hill on DVD (click to see it bigger!)Silent Hill (2006)
Directed by Christophe Gans

Finally, the movie we’ve all been waiting for to hit DVD (all right, it’s only been four months since its release) has come to take up residence in your home: Silent Hill. Christophe Gans did what most fans thought was impossible by making an SH movie that was relatively true to the games while only managing to screw up a bit on the casting end of things. Still, the film looks amazing and has some of the best gore I’ve seen on a big screen in years… if only the DVD had more to offer. Check out Creepy’s review of it here for the details on that. Buy it here!

Ryan Schifrin’s Abominable Gets a Sasquatch-Sized Blu-Ray



A recent scientific study concluded that since the year 2000 there have 4,374,139 killer Bigfoot movies. 2006’s Abominable is one of the better Sasquatch-ploitation flicks of the era. Now this creature feature is getting a collector’s edition blu-ray complete with a brand new cut of the gruesome flick.

MVD Rewind Collection has announced they’re planning a special edition of Ryan Schifrin’s gory Hitchcock-influenced Bigfoot flick Abominable, which cast Matt McCoy as a wheelchair bound man who begins Rear Window-ing a psycho Sasquatch terrorizing his hot-blooded cabin neighbors that then turns his big foot towards him. Lance Henriksen, Dee Wallace, Jeffrey Combs, Tiffany Shepis, Haley Joel, Karin Anna Cheung, and Paul Gleason co-star.

It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. It’s been hunted it for years. But what happens when it decides to hunt us?

After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When his new neighbor Karen, is attacked by a gigantic creature, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police and those around him dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.

This won’t be your typical collector’s edition as not only will be getting a new high definition transfer of the film originally shot on 35mm, this will also include an all-new cut of the film with improved CGI-effects overseen by filmmaker Schifrin and editor Chris Conlee with enhanced color timing and correction.

-Brand New 2k Remaster of the Film from the Original Camera Negative
-Brand New Introduction from Director Ryan Schifrin (HD)

Horror Retro Caps Boasts Hats Featuring The Lamp, The Video Dead, Rosemary’s Killer and more!



Yesterday I was stumbling around on Instagram and I came across this killer account called @horrorretrocaps. They make horror movie-themed hats and I felt the need to share their work with you guys today.

It’s not so much the hats (which are cool), or the quality of the product (which looks sound as a pound) but it is the obvious love of horror by the guys behind the scenes that gets me all warm and fuzzy.

I mean sure there are products like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But they also have hats celebrating such classics as The Outing, The Lamp (hell, yeah!), The Gate, Zombie Lake, and The Video Dead.


On top of that, the product that sealed the deal for me was their Rosemary’s Killer hat. As some of you might know, Rosemary’s Killer is the alternate title of Joseph Zito’s underrated slasher The Prowler. That alone just earned them horror-cred for days.

You can check out some of their choice caps below and then head on over to their account to purchase some product: @horrorretrocaps.

All caps are $15 plus $4 shipping in the U.S., and he also takes requests for $20.
