Specs and Features Revealed for The Amityville Horror Trilogy Box SetFans of the very haunted home located at 112 Ocean Ave (well, it has since been moved but…), this is the moment that you’ve been waiting for!

There’s no place like home…for bloodcurdling horror! For George and Kathy Lutz from THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, the colonial house on the river’s edge seemed ideal: quaint, spacious and amazingly affordable. Of course, six brutal murders had taken place there just a year before, but houses don’t have memories…or do they? Soon the Lutz dream house becomes a hellish nightmare, as walls begin to drip blood and satanic forces threaten to destroy them. Now the family must try to escape or forfeit their lives – and their souls! One of the most talked-about haunted house stories of all time, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR is a spine-tingling tale of a house possessed by unspeakable evil. The film stars James Brolin (Christine, Traffic), Margot Kidder (Halloween II, Superman) and Rod Steiger (In the Heat of the Night, Doctor Zhivago).

Before the residence at 112 Ocean Avenue became infamous in THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, its supernatural legacy of terror had already begun. Inspired by the true story, the chilling prequel AMITYVILLE II: THE POSSESSION is a horrifying, special-effects laden encounter with pure evil.

Although the Montellis are not exactly the “perfect family,” at least they’ve found the perfect home. And even though a liquid that looks a lot like blood starts gushing from the kitchen faucet and every window has been nailed shut, it still qualifies as their dream house – until all hell breaks loose! A local priest (James Olson, Hawaii Five-O) tries to rid the house of unclean spirits, but what he doesn’t yet suspect is that teenage son Sonny Montelli (Jack Magner) has been possessed by a murderous demon hell-bent on total destruction. Also starring Burt Young (Rocky), Rutanya Alda (Mommie Dearest) and Diane Franklin (Terrrovision).

In AMITYVILLE 3D movie, the house of unspeakable evil is back to torment all that cross its threshold as Dino De Laurentis and legendary director Richard Fleischer (20,000 Leagues Under The Sea) present “a horror picture of considerable class and polish” (Los Angeles Times)!

To debunk the Amityville house’s infamous reputation and take advantage of a rock-bottom asking price, skeptical journalist John Baxter (Tony Roberts, The Thorns) buys the place and settles in to write his first novel. But as soon as the ink on the deed has dried, people who have come into contact with him – and the house – begin to meet with a shocking fate. Is it coincidence… or is this house really the gateway to hell? Tess Harper (No Country for Old Men), Lori Loughlin (90210, Full House) and Meg Ryan (Proof of Life) also star in this 3D terrorfest!

    Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

    Published

    on

    It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

    IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

    According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

    Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

    These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

    DIS Review – Not for the Faint of Heart!

    Published

    on

    Starring Bill Oberst, Jr., Lori Jo Hendrix, Peter Gonzales Falcon

    Directed by Adrian Corona


    I’ve made this claim many a time on this website before, and in the company of film friends as well: Bill Oberst Jr. is one of those actors that can literally be thrust into ANY role, and deliver a performance with so much harnessed electricity that you couldn’t believe that it was possible. I was the lucky recipient chosen to get a look at his latest project, titled DIS, and I think that I can honestly say – this is the stuff that nightmares are constructed of.

    Directed by Adrian Corona, this 60-minute dive into the black depths of hell, and in actuality DIS is located between circles # 6 and 9 in Dante’s Divine Comedy, and trust me when I tell you – there’s not a shred of comedic relief in this demented presentation. Oberst Jr plays an ex-soldier named Ariel, and his seemingly harmless jaunt through the woods will become anything but that, and judging from the film’s opening scenes, you are meant to feel as uncomfortable about this watch as any you might have checked out in recent memory.

    Perversion is the norm here, and lord help you if you’re caught where you shouldn’t be…my skin’s crawling just thinking about what I saw. Ariel’s travels are basically dialogue-free, but it only adds to the infinite levels of creepiness – you can tell he’s being stalked, and the distance between he and the horrors that await are closing in rather quickly.

    Visually by itself, this hour-long chiller can sell tickets without any assistance – hollowed-out buildings and long sweeping shots of a silent forest give the movie that look of complete desolation. Sliced up into three acts, the film wastes no time in setting up the story of a killer needing fresh blood to appease his Mandrake garden – seriously guys, I can’t type as much flashy stuff as there needs to be in order to describe this innately disturbing production.

    If you’re one of those types who tends to shy away from the graphic side of things, then I’d HIGHLY advise you to keep your TV tuned to the Hallmark Channel for some holiday entertainment, because this one registers high on the “I can’t believe someone thought of this” meter. So the quick recap is this: Oberst Jr in a standout performance, visual excellence, and an unshakable sense of debasement on a cellular level – keep the kiddies out of the living room with this one. Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended, and one that I’ll throw down as a top 5 for me in 2017.

    Summary

    Director Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended!
