Slither

DVD and Blu-ray Releases: August 1, 2017

Hello again, fellow fiends. We’ve got a pretty decent list this week, so there has to be at least a few discrepancies. First up, last week I told you that Slither might not be out until this week, so I’ve listed it again here. Don’t Knock Twice is scheduled for a full release this week but also had a Walmart-exclusive release back on June 6th in case you’ve already seen it floating around. Lastly, Ogroff: Mad Mutilator showed up on the July 11th release schedule but popped up at the last minute for this week. I’ve included that title, along with both of the covers being released for it, again here this week.

If you’re a collector, particularly if you like Steelbook releases, this week has two good options for you. Both The Fog and They Live will have Blu-ray Steelbooks dropping this week, so pick them up to make your movie shelf look that much prettier.

For fans of Mickey Rooney, a rare movie of his will be getting released this week. The Intruder, from 1975, will have a Blu-ray available this week. You can read more information about it here.

In terms of other classics, Friday the 13th Parts 1 through 3 will all be coming on DVD this week (again). 1962’s Phantom of the Opera will also be getting a DVD release this week.

There are a bunch of more recent movies (the past 15 years or so) also getting re-released this week on either Blu-ray or DVD. If you missed out when they first dropped, titles like Shutter Island, What Lies Beneath, Disturbia, Suspect Zero, and The Good Son will all be readily available this week.

There are two other movies worth noting this week. The first is Phoenix Forgotten, which you can learn more about here. The second is House on Willow Street, whose Dread Central review you can also check out.

We will see you again next week, folks. Hopefully you can find whatever movies tickle your fancy, and as always, pleasant viewing.

Starring:

Howard Vernon, Norbert Moutier, Françoise Deniel, Pierre Pattin, Alain Petit

Synopsis:

Videonomicon proudly presents one of the first truly underground French horror/slasher films – officially available in North America for the first time ever – Norbert Moutier’s Super 8mm gore-fest Ogroff (aka Mad Mutilator)! For Ogroff, the mad lumberjack, the war is not over yet. Having suffered trepanation and ablated in one eye during the war Ogroff continues the fight by brutally killing anyone who enters the forest where he now resides. That is until one woman catches his eye and things get even weirder! Friends, families, kids, cars – no one and no thing is safe from the Mad Mutilator! Norbert Moutier (credited as N.G Mount), at the time a video shoppe owner, started filming in 1982 with no money but with a lot of passion. His dream: to achieve a French horror version of films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, and Night of the Living Dead that he could rent in his own store. What resulted over weekend shoots in the French countryside with the help of friends and other cinephiles (Alain Petit, Midnight Party, Zombie Lake) became a violent, over-the-top, bizarre, nonsensical, and nearly dialogue-free cult oddity which features the special participation of Jess Franco regular Howard Vernon (A Virgin Among the Living Dead, The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein) in a surprising and strange supporting role. Videonomicon brings this rarely seen one-of-a-kind horror masterpiece (or disasterpiece depending on how you view it) completely uncut and uncensored in its original French language with improved subtitles and newly remastered picture! Two versions of the movie: 2016 Colour Graded Remaster & Original Tape Transfer! Subtitle options: English, French, Spanish! Stills Gallery! Trailer! DVD-ROM Content! Includes liner notes featuring writings and reviews by Andy Bolus and Joseph A. Ziemba! Two completely different reversible cover options featuring new and original artwork! New artwork by Steak Mtn. (Cover A) and Jon Vaughn (Cover B)!
