DVD Release List: Flood Gates Open



Oh … my … GOD! As expected with the upcoming Halloween season the DVD releases are going to grow rapidly in number over the next few weeks. Let’s see what we have to work with on Tuesday, September 25th (please note, this is just a highlight of what is coming out, the full list is much, much longer)!

Click to see it bigger!Alone in the Dark: Unrated Director’s Cut (2005)
Directed by Uwe Boll

What do you get when you cut nine minutes from a bad film and add an additional 13 new minutes of equally bad material? Why, you get Uwe Boll’s unrated cut of Alone in the Dark! Don’t worry, Ms. Reed will still be prancing around in glasses that make her look more like a cheap stripper than someone with an IQ/Alcohol level over .08. If you want a better explanation of what makes this double dip so special listen to Foy’s interview with the good doctor! Or just go read Creepy’s DVD review of Alone in the Dark: Unrated Director’s Cut for more! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Bug (2007)
Directed by William Friedkin

Having seen Bug off Broadway, I was fully expecting something amazing when walking to the theatres. As pleased as I was, others could not grasp William Friedkin’s unique style of filmmaking that made The Exorcist amazing. The audiences just were not ready for a film that was more about the deteriorating mental states of two druggies than an actual insect infestation. Too bad for them, but good news for us. Check out the DVD review of Bug for more! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Cujo: 25th Anniversary Edition (1983)
Directed by Lewis Teague

The rabid St. Bernard returns for its 25th anniversary for another dip in the DVD pool. The film, based on a Stephen King story, still works to this day … but what sort of special features make this new disc worth the purchase? Check out the DVD review of Cujo for that information! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Broken (2006)
Directed by Adam Mason and Simon Boyes

The directing team of Mason and Boyes keep the torture porn genre in motion by bringing us yet another film about some poor woman being taken advantage of. Yaaaaawn. This film hits somewhere in the middle of the fence. It isn’t truly bad, but it never rises above just an average horror flick. Can supplements save this film from obscurity? Check out the DVD review of Broken for more! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Demons/Demons 2 (1985 & 1986)
Directed by Lamberto Bava

Horror maestro Mario Bava’s son, Lamberto, shares the same talent and passion his father did for the genre. Some punk kids unleash hell on Earth in the first film, while high-rise living snobs face off the devil spawns in the second. Trust me when I say it is a great experience all the way around. To match the quality of the first two Demon films, these new DVDs come with great commentary tracks, which make up for the lack of other, meatier special features. DVD review of Demons & Demons 2 for more! Buy Demons here and its sequel here!

Click to see it bigger!Night of the Demons 2 (1994)
Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith

You know what? There just aren’t movies about kids and demonic creatures anymore in our genre. They’ve been replaced with long haired creepy kids and twitchy ghosts. Sweet shit! Bring back some good old beasts from the pit! Until that becomes the new hot topic in Hollywood we’ll just have to settle for the DVD release of Night of the Demons 2. Nasty pit bitch Angela returns but this time she’s out to find her sister. Ass kickery and a badass Kung Fu nun await those brave enough to watch! See the DVD review of Night of the Demons 2 for more! Buy Night of the Demons 2 here!

Click to see it bigger!Spider Baby: Special Edition (1964)
Directed by Jack Hill

The Maddest Story Ever Told is finally getting the release it deserves. Jack Hill’s Spider Baby has been one of the most ill treated horror films of the ’60s. Not a single high quality DVD of the flick had been unleashed to the public until now. The disc comes packed with many special features including a commentary with Jack Hill and Sid Haig! Check out the interview Creepy conducted with these two right here. Buy Spider Baby here!

Exclusive: Megaherz Raise the Curtains With “Vorhang Auf” Video Premiere



Today we’re teaming up with German industrial metal band Megaherz to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for their song “Vorhang Auf”, which appears on their upcoming album Komet. Directed by Adam D. Barker, the video sees the band performing in a domed, almost MMA-esque cage while surrounded by dozens upon dozens of tealight candles. This footage is intercut with a ballerina (Lauren Burton) performing her own dance moves to the Neue Deutsche Härte style of music.

Megaherz tells Dread Central, “Vorhang Auf (Let the Curtain Rise)” is a song about our lives, the stage, the whole energy we share with the audience. The pain, the intoxication, the strength. An incredulous feeling that makes everything else forget. Let’s dance together and let’s hope we don’t ever have to stop!

Komet comes out February 23 and can be pre-ordered through Napalm Records.

You can follow Megaherz on their official website and through Facebook.
