Welcome back, everyone. First: the discrepancies. Slither is scheduled on Amazon to be released on August 1st, but on both the Shout! Factory website as well as Blu-ray.com, this is the week. I will list it again next week as well in case you can’t find it this week.

Similarly, the special edition Re-Animator Blu-ray may not be available until August 8th, so I will remind you in a few weeks should you miss out.

See you next week, my fellow lovers of gore, suspense, thrills and chills. As always, pleasant viewing.

Adam and his wife Beth are a struggling couple with a newborn baby Emma. Adam receives a phone call from his estranged brother, Jake, informing him that their mother has gone missing. He urges Adam and his family to come back to their hometown.

They are greeted by Jake and his wife Christy, who are a shining example of a happy couple. A search committee is at Evette’s house, from Gateways, a bereavement group that has been helping Evette deal with the loss of her previous home and their father.

As the brothers try to get past old grievances and work together in finding their mother, Adam becomes increasingly aware that Gateways may be up to something more sinister, and perhaps even behind their mother’s disappearance.

A dark, shadowy presence begins to stalk Beth, seeming to influence her thoughts. As Adam’s paranoia continues to grow, he becomes terrified that Gateways and a shapeless, faceless creature lurking around the family may be after their newborn baby.

Herbert West has a good head on his shoulders… And another one on his desk.

One of the most wildly popular horror movies of all-time, Stuart Gordon s enduring splatter-comedy classic Re-Animator returns to Blu-ray in a stunning restoration packed with special features!

When medical student Dean Cain advertises for a roommate, he soon finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West. Initially a little eccentric, it some becomes clear that West entertains some seriously outlandish theories specifically, the possibility of re-animating the dead. It s not long before Dean finds himself under West s influence, and embroiled in a serious of ghoulish experiments which threaten to go wildly out of control…

Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s classic terror tale “Herbert West Reanimator” and featuring a standout performance from Jeffrey Combs as the deliciously deranged West, Re-Animator remains the ground-zero of ’80s splatter mayhem and one of the genre’s finest hours.

The Zodiac Killer (1971)

Starring:

Hal Reed, Bob Jones, Bertha Dahl

Synopsis:

Directed by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of Pizza Man restaurants, The Zodiac Killer was made to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn’t work. Instead, we got the most outrageous and compelling ”tabloid horror” vortex in the history of planet Earth. And beyond. During theatrical screenings, Hanson constructed in-theater ”traps” to lure the killer from hiding. These included the use of an ice cream freezer filled with rent-a-cops and a raffle with a motorcycle as a prize. You won’t get insight like this by watching a David Fincher movie. But you will get it while watching The Zodiac Killer.
