Twilight Time’s Blu-ray Release of The Blob Remake Taking Shape



Post Thumb:


There’s good and bad news for everyone who has been waiting for the 1988 remake of The Blob to make its way to Blu-ray. The good news is that it is coming soon. The bad news is it’s coming by way of Twilight Time, which means you’ll have to act fast or miss out.

I hate having to say Twilight Time releasing a movie many have been clamoring for on Blu-ray is a bad thing, but with their business model you’re guaranteed a few things:

– It’ll retail for about $30.
– It’ll be limited to only 3,000 copies.
– It’ll probably sell out very quickly.
– Copies on eBay will then sell for big bucks.
– The disc could very well be bare bones.
– If you hesitate, there’s no telling if or when it will ever get another Blu-ray release.

So that’s the bad news.

The good news, though, is that Chuck Russell and Frank Darabont’s great, gooey, gory 1988 remake of The Blob starring Shawnee Smith and Kevin Dillon will be getting a much deserved Blu-ray release in the very near future. Twilight Time has yet to announce exactly when that release date will be or on what date the mad rush to pre-order this title begins before they inevitably sell out of the 3,000 allotted copies. We’ll keep you posted.

Since I know I’ll be one of those pre-ordering this title, maybe I won’t keep you posted and that way I’ll have a better chance of securing a copy before it sells out. Hmmm… Quite the dilemma.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating



Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations



The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
