DVD Releases: Wrestling Sisters!

Published

on

Crazy wrestlers and psychotic sisters are just some of the DVD offerings for Tuesday, March 11th, 2008…

Aspiring Psychopath on DVD!Aspiring Psychopath (2007)
Directed by Ryan Cavalline

What a dazzling original concept! A girl, more than likely a very hot girl, decides early on that all she really wants to be is a serial killer. She studies their patterns, how they pick their victims, how they torture and kill them, and finally she’s ready to set off on her own. Of course, she has to take out the teacher she learned from to prove to herself that she has what it takes first. Consider my mind blown! Buy it here!

Directed by Jamie Dixon

Yes, that’s right, it’s the sequel you’ve all been waiting for to come to DVD; Bats: Human Harvest! Foy called it a movie ”without a single nuance of thrills or excitement” back in his “>review, but really how bad could it be? Probably even worse than Foy says cause the man has a very high tolerance for shit so was likely too kind to it. The story is about a team of soldiers in the jungles of Brazil dealing with yet another strain of (digital) killer bats. Terror? Unlikely. Boredom? Guaranteed! Buy it here!


Click to see the cover bigger!Hunting Creatures (2004)
Directed by Oliver Kellisch & Andreas Pape

Here’s a good reason you don’t throw raves at abandoned chemical plants. I mean seriously, why would you even think that was a good idea? During this particular rave, a chemical spill causes anyone who touches it to become a flesh-eating zombie, and of course they pass it on to anyone they bite. A new release from Unearthed Films, so you know it’s going to be wall-to-wall blood and cuts and more than likely a pretty good time. Buy it here!


Naked Violence on DVD!Naked Violence
Directed by Various

A two-disc set from Sub Rosa Studio, a company I’m still amazed are turning a profit at all. This set features Night Owl, the story of a vampire who finds his victims through the local bar scene and the brother of one of his victims (John Leguizamo) who is searching for is missing sister; and Sudden Fury, which doesn’t have much of a plot description but is apparently from the UK and filled with gore, torture and raunchy sex in a story about two gangs trying to killer one another. Buy it here!


Click to see the cover bigger!Outpost (2007)
Directed by Steve Barker

Don’t let the really stupid cover fool you; early word on this action/horror hybrid is that it’s pretty damn good. The story follows some mercenaries who take shelter in a disused military bunker, on a mission from a secretive businessman. There they uncover an evil that’s been buried for half a century and the fight for survival is on. Buy it here!


Click to see the cover bigger!Sands of Oblivion (2007)
Directed by David Flores

Back in 1923, Cecille B. DeMille was filming The Ten Commadments and had re-constructed a replica of ancient Egypt. After the film was done he ordered the entire set buried, and now an archeologist couple and a war vet have found the location of the old set an unleashed an evil that should have remained buried in the sand. Check out our “>Sands of Oblivion DVD review for more! Buy it here!


Click to see the cover bigger!Sisters (2007)
Directed by Douglas Buck

A remake of Brian DePalma’s film of the same name, this one stars Chloe Sevigny as a reporter to witnesses a very bizarre murder and begins to do her own investigation. Police don’t find a corpse or any evidence of the crime so she’s got her work cut out for her. Her search eventually leads to an asylum and a mystery surrounding the woman’s once-conjoined twin. Buck’s been working on this one for years so I really hope the wait has been worth it! Buy it here!


Click to see the cover bigger!Wrestlemaniac (2007)
Directed by Jesse Baget

The concept is not really what one would call “gold”, but the execution is what B-movie classics are made of! The cast and crew of a low budget film get lost on the way to a shoot and end up in a ghost town that is supposedly plagued by a psychotic wrestler. One by the one the film crew are snatched away by the titular psycho, and those very few left alive have to figure out a way to stop the killer before they’re his next victims.

Inoperable starring Danielle Harris Gets New Poster and Limited December Release Date

Published

on

Last year we here at Dread Central premiered the trailer for the upcoming Danielle Harris hospital horror flick Inoperable from director Christopher Lawrence Chapman.

Today we have the film’s all-new poster and news that the film will finally be hitting select theaters on December 1st.

I just watched the trailer again myself and I have to say I am really looking forward to the film. I dig the location, the hurricane aspect, the psychological horror of the situation and the whole she-bang.

Count me to check out the film as soon as it hits Blu-ray and/or VOD (hopefully) within the new year. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

What do you think of the trailer and new poster for Inoperable? Let us know below!

The film is directed by Christopher Lawrence Chapman from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jeff Miller. The film stars Danielle Harris, Katie Keene, and Isabella Sofia Menna.

Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps handled the film’s makeup effects, with David Henson Greathouse (Syfy’s “FaceOff”) supervising, and he, Barry Aslinger, and Beki Ingram handling the bulk of the effects. Philip Jessen is unit production manager, Ashley Eberbach is first assistant director, and Bobby Marinelli is production designer.

Inoperable hits select theaters December 1st.

Synopsis:

A young woman wakes up in a seemingly evacuated hospital with a hurricane approaching. She realizes the storm has awakened malevolent forces, trapping her in a time loop. She must escape the hospital before the storm passes or she will be trapped in its halls forever.

Published

on

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…

Published

on

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.

Synopsis:
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…
