DVD Releases: Nothing to Get Outta Bed For



A small selection of digital disc delights coming your way this Tuesday, February 12th
Click to see the art bigger!Blade: The Series
Directed by Various

This was an idea with potential, as it’s easy to see the Blade character getting into mix-ups for years with all those evil vampires running around, but it didn’t make it past the first season. Nonetheless, New Line is giving it a proper DVD release for the fans, following the separate release of the two-hour pilot. And he’s got a lady friend to fight with him this time, too! Listen to our interview with star Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones to hear what it was like; then check out the “Blade: The Series” DVD review to learn more! Buy it here!

Directed by William Butler

Definitely not a highlight in the directing career of former effects man William Butler, but then you can do much worse than Furnace, too. The story is about a detective investigating a string of mysterious deaths in Blackgate Penitentiary, unaware that they’re being caused by the ghost of a little girl burned alive in the jail’s furnace years before. But then, how would you be able to make that connection anyway? I guess you’ll have to watch it to find out, or just read our Furnace DVD review to learn more. Buy it here!

Hate 2O on DVD!Hate 2O (2007)
Directed by Alex Infascelli

Strange how familiar this seems, almost like it’s been on a DVD release list before. But we’ll go forward, since I know for sure it’s out this week. The story is about a group of girlfriends who head out to a retreat for a purifying water fast. How new age. One girl is ridiculed because of her docile nature, but when she removes the only link she has to her unborn sister, a sister absorbed by her before her birth, things go all to hell. Buy it here!

Directed by Steffen Schlachtenhaufen

Apparently one of those rare films that come along now and then which manage to give Bigfoot a bad name. It’s really too bad, too; the guy deserves better if you ask me. A badly-designed Sasquatch and unconvincing characters permeate Primal, causing many a monster movie fan to not be able to make it more than about 30 minutes into it. Be sure to read our Primal DVD review for more criticism! Buy it here!

Click to see the art bigger!Soul’s Midnight (2007)
Directed by Harry Basil

Gotta admit, if nothing else this one sure has an eye-catching cover. The story follows a group of brutal vampires who live in a desolate hotel, awaiting the human sacrifice that will resurrect their messiah. Sexy and surprising, or so says the product description, from what I could find this one’s actually not too bad. The fact that it stars American Gangster’s Armand Assante doesn’t hurt, that’s for sure. Buy it here!

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own



Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…



Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…

Not a huge deal, though. Only till January.

The news comes to us via a South Carolina casting agency, The Island Packet, who are still seeking extras for the new film. In fact, if you are from the South Carolina area, you can be an extra in the film. Just click the link above for more details.

I wish I lived in or around South Carolina because being in this new Halloween would be a f*cking dream come true. If you’re in the area, get on it. You owe it to the rest of us! Haha?

How excited would you be to be an extra in this new Halloween? Let us know below!

Blumhouse’s Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer and is executive produced and scored by John Carpenter.
