DVD Releases: Nov. 24, 2009: Throw The Witches Hammer at The Fiend with a Silent Scream

A handful of this week's releases came out a day early -- on the 23rd instead of the 24th -- but even so, there aren't a lot of familiar names to choose from. The picks of the week are two Blu-rays: My Bloody Valentine (Special Edition) and The Monster Squad (20th Anniversary Edition). If you don't have the tech yet for those, then read on for what you might want to put on your shopping list.

Illustrated film Godkiller releases its second episode on the 24th, and fans of classic horror won't want to miss out on the 1980 slasher Silent Scream. Japanese film lovers have a lot to pick from among Devilman, Ichi 1, and Blood: The Last Vampire (the animated version). Take a few moments to look over the rest -- there's bound to be one hidden gem among them!

Who in the bloodly hell said Philosophy of a Knife is "one of the most violent, brutal and harrowing films ever made"? I thought we all agreed it was a piece of shit.

Guess I'll be buying Silent Scream.

I think they just quoted us quoting them. In one of our earliest stories about the film, Butane wrote: "Being touted as one of the most violent, brutal and harrowing films ever made ..." Hilarious!
