DVD Releases: Post-Halloween Blues



Even though Halloween is over, the DVD list stays huge. Check out the releases for Tuesday, November 6th, 2007…

Click to see it bigger!Blood Car (2007)
Directed by Alex Orr

Though the premise has a lot going for it, something about Blood Car just didn’t work for me. It worked better for staff reviewer D.W. Bostaph, which is why he reviewed Blood Car for us over the weekend. Essentially it takes place in the near future when gas is way too expensive. A hippy accidentally invents a car engine that only runs on blood, and hilarity ensues. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Blood Dancers (2007)
Directed by J.R. McGarrity

Wow, this sounds so much like a porno it’s not even funny. A cocktail waitress decides there’s more money in topless dancing (it’s true, ladies) and immediately meets up with a trio of vampires who become infatuated with her. Then it’s up to the other cocktail waitresses and a pizza delivery guy (!) to save her. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Blood Monkey (2006)
Directed by Robert Young

Six grad students are stranded in the jungle and left to fend for themselves against … a tribe of killer chimpanzees! You see, their professor insists that this rare opportunity to study the species was a great idea, but pretty soon they learn why no one’s studied killer fucking chimpanzees before. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Day of the Triffids (1981)
Directed by Ken Hannam

After a meteorite hits the Earth, most of the population of the planet is struck blind save for a small group who managed to look the other way at the last minute. Their plan to try and build a future together runs into a problem with a carnivorous plant known as a triffid develops a taste for rotting human flesh … and learns to walk. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Horrors of War (2006)
Directed by Peter John Ross

Back during WWII, Hitler had some very unconventional ideas of how to defeat the Allied Forces trying to bring his army to its knees. Our O.S.S. sends a team in to try and find out the source of Hitler’s latest batch of nightmare warriors. The movie is cheese through and through from what I’ve read, an homage to sci-fi/horror movies from the 40s and 50s, so just keep that in mind if you sit down with it. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!In the Spider’s Web (2006)
Directed by Peter Terry Winsor

Another monster movie set in a jungle in the same week? How weird. This time Lance Henriksen stars as a doctor who plans to use a local breed of spider, who like to feast on the dead, as some sort of unimaginable weapon. Not sure about the DVD, but you can read Melissa’s In the Spider’s Web review to learn more about the movie! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Killing Spree (1987)
Directed by Tim Ritter

From the director of the infamous Truth or Dare comes this harrowing tale of a suburban man who finds out that his wife is fucking everyone in the neighborhood. He decides to take his revenge on the loves by utilizing the most interesting killing tools he can come up with, but the dead lovers just don’t want to stay dead. Too bad Sub Rose put such an ass-ugly border around the cool original art, but what can you do? Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Legend of Ogre (2006)
Directed by ?

A teacher and her two students head out to a mountain village and learn the legend of a red-haired ogre who once saved the village. A strange woman tells them of the curse that surrounds the legend, but they ignore it and open a forbidden door that unleashes the aforementioned curse. Sucks to be them! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Manticore (2005)
Directed by Tripp Reed

A US Army squad is sent into Iraq to find a missing news crew, but instead find the villagers are sitting on top of a actual weapon of mass destruction, a real live Manticore! Of course it’s unleashed and causes CG havoc. Check out Foywonder’s Manticore review to learn more about it. Trust me, it’s not a “Sci Fi Essential” like the cover implies. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Melancholia (1989)
Directed by Andi Engel

After the death of her father, young Mirai moves into a house with her aunt and uncle, but begins to have horrible visions. As everyone around her starts dying she realizes she has to delve into her past in order to stop the visions and find the murder who is ruining her life. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!The Slaughter (2006)
Directed by Jay Lee

Just one … just one fucking movie about monsters that doesn’t involve fucking college students. Seriously, why does every one have to have students as their meat for the beast? Is it because no one really cares about what happens to students? Or that they’re at that stage in life where they’re just stupid? Whatever the case, this one’s about a bunch of college students who awaken an ancient demon when they’re sent in to clean up an old house. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Werewolf in a Woman’s Prison (2006)
Directed by Jeff Leroy

A girl, on a camping trip with her boyfriend, is the only survivor after a werewolf has at them and the boyfriend is torn to pieces. If course, they suspect her because it makes sense that a girl would tear someone apart. She wakes up in a corrupt woman’s prison and eventually the strange bite she suffered in the attack as its way with her. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!The X-Files: The Complete Collection
Directed by Various

Wow, sixty-one discs make up this set, the full adventures of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, who are assigned to the strange cases that no one else wants, investigating alien abductions, monsters, and other strange things that go bump in the night. All nine seasons are finally collected for the first time, coincidentally a mere week after the new X-Files movie was announced. Buy it here!

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.

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.

Jurassic Park T-Rex Stomps Through Ready Player One Trailer #3



Is that the f*cking T-Rex!?

It was only earlier this week that we brought you guys the new “pure 80’s nostalgia” poster (to the right) for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure film Ready Player One.

And if all the promotional materials we have seen thus far haven’t done anything to raise your interest in the film (including trailers which featured Freddy Krueger, Chucky, Christine, and King Kong) then today’s new might not help matters much.

But all the same today we have a new trailer which features the mighty T-Rex from Spielberg’s own Jurassic Park and a bunch of new character posters for good measure.

I’m just going to come right out and say that as impressed as I am with the trailers for this film, I can’t help but feel someone watched theImaginationland episode of “South Park” and thought, “Mother of God… call Steven Speilberg!”

You can check out the character posters and the new trailer below and then let us know what you think of the film thus far.

Ready Player One is directed by Steven Spielberg from a script by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, based on the novel by Cline. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Mark Rylance, Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendelsohn.

The film hits theaters March 29, 2018.


When the creator of an MMO called the Oasis dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all Oasis users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.
