We told you last month that the classic 1970s made-for-TV terror tale The Horror at 37,000 Feet, starring William Shatner, Chuck Connors, Paul Winfield, Russell Johnson, and many others, would be hitting DVD in March. Now we have the official details and more!
The 1970’s were a great time for made-for-television horror movies. Some, like Horror at 37,000 Feet, were just great camp. An all-star cast consisting of William Shatner, Chuck Connors, Buddy Ebsen, Roy Thinnes, Paul Winfield, Russell Johnson, and more...
Horror Snubbed at the Oscars; William Shatner Asleep in the Audience; Jennifer Lawrence Falls; Meryl Streep Picks Wedgie!
And the Oscar gold goes to... everything but the few genre films which were nominated at the 2013 Academy Awards. Overall the entire show was a snooze, and we mean that literally! See that for yourself and more.
William Shatner. Not since his iconic portrayal of Captain James Tiberius Kirk has he ever played as ridiculously masculine a character as he did in Kingdom of the Spiders. His character's name? "Rack" Hansen. That's right, "Rack" Friggin' Hansen, and he can take out your stupid eye and steal your woman with nothing more than a mere glance shot your way via his razor sharp animal magnetism!
As we said when the announcement first came that Kingdom of the Spiders was getting a special edition DVD release, if you've never seen William Shatner's portrayal of manly man Rack Hansen, shame on you! If you don't have any idea what I'm talking about, then you NEED to watch the DVD trailer and clips for the film provided by Shout! Factory.
The Dread Central crew were in attendance at the recent Spike TV Scream Awards reporting on the events as they happened, and to get you geared up for watching the show tomorrow night, October 27th, Spike has released a few more highlights!
If you've never seen William Shatner's seminal portrayal of Rack Hansen in the 1977 film Kingdom of the Spiders, shame on you! However, come January, 2010, you'll be able to redeem yourself as Shout! Factory will be releasing a Special Edition UNCUT version of the film on DVD.
Give Charles Band credit; he knows how to keep Full Moon going. Whether it’s his new studio in China (story here) or his bonkers show that’s hitting the road this fall, the Full Moon name is out there and going strong.
