Trembles is taking a well deserved two-week break from churning out new editions of his Motion Picture Purgatory so he sent over a blast from the past review of 1975's cult classic Thundercrack.
This is the first news story of 2010 that I'm excited about! The third film in José Mojica Marins' Coffin Joe trilogy, The Embodiment of Evil, is coming home next year!
Though they may take a very, very long time to get the films out there, you really can’t deny that it’s more than worth the wait for anything Synapse Films does these days. Their years-in-the-making DVD of Home Sick is the latest example, and recently president Don May, Jr. talked about two more upcoming releases that I’m sure will prove my point.
It’s odd; I have had a copy of Sick Girl in my hands since it got such a good reaction at the last Fear Fest, but I’ve yet to actually sit down with it yet. My plan was to do so tonight, which may have inspired the good news Twitch learned today.
This is it, the last big list before Halloween! Check out the horror DVDs coming out on Tuesday, October 28th, 2008!
Seems like it’s been forever and a day or two since Adam Wingard’s Home Sick was running through my old VHS player, twisting my brain. It’s been so long I don’t even have VHS anymore, as a matter of fact, but that’s all right because the final version of Home Sick is finally out on DVD today!
It’s been almost six years since Adam Wingard (Pop Skull) completed work on his directorial debut, the Alabama-set survival horror piece Home Sick. Since then it’s played all over the place in varying degrees of completion before the final, definitive version was shown at last year’s Fantasia Film Festival.
News today came crawling out of the wicker bag over at Davis DVD that Basket Case 2 will be getting a region 1 DVD release on October 30th! No more need to pay the extra cash on multi-region video players and discs now! And kiss your bootleg copy goodbye because this new release from Synapse Films features a video transfer from the original 35mm negative!
We’ve been keeping up on the triumphant return of Coffin Joe to film since the project was first announced, so I'm happy that we can let you guys know that production on the movie, The Embodiment of Evil, has officially wrapped!
Don't feel like paying $70+ for the rare first dip of Maniac Cop starring Tom Atkins and Bruce Campbell?
Wow, remember Home Sick? The little indie film starring Tom Towles, Tiffany Shepis, and Bill Moseley that was made by some crazy kids from backwater Alabama, one of whom used to contribute to our old site quite a bit?
Oh, what a wonderful day this is. One of the most amazing discoveries in the history of man is being reported over at Fangoria. Is it the Holy Grail? Jesus? Perhaps a new source of oil? NO! Even better than all those things combined!
