Arrow Video's Showreel Teases Big Trouble and The 'Burbs

Starburst has just posted an amazing showreel of past, present and future Arrow Video releases. There was a big "Ho-ly Shit!" moment for me halfway through when the shot of Tom Hanks from The 'Burbs popped up, that's an instant buy for me when it comes out early next year. Also excited about Big Trouble in China of course, but I've seen The 'Burbs like 25 times and I somehow never tire of it. Take a look at the showreel below:

Dark Angel - Scream Factory Blu-ray Review

Dark Angel

Director: Craig R. Baxley
Writer: Jonathan Tydor, Leonard Maas, Jr.
Stars: Dolph Lundgren, Brian Benben, Betsy Brantley, Matthias Hues, Jay Bilas
Year: 1990
Running Time: 91 Minutes
Studio: Scream Factory
Region: A
Alternate Title: I Come In Peace



The Humans
  • Jack Caine () - Hard-ass cop who plays by his own rules. See: Every lead cop in a movie since 1968. Favorite Fight Move: Overly Graceful Roundhouse Kick
  • Arwood "Larry" Smith () - Caine's by-the-book partner who provides much of the comic relief. Weapon of Choice: Smarm
  • Victor Manning () -  Leader of the notorious White Boys gang. Terrible at: coming up with gang names.
The Aliens
  • Bad Alien ( ) - Alien drug dealer with an amazingly metal haircut who gets his supply on the cheap by embezzling endorphins from human brains.
  • Good Alien ()- Intergalactic Narc who looks like Clint Howard with an unbraided Manchu haircut. Could've ended this movie in about 3 minutes if he'd have taken a couple of seconds to line up a shot. By the way, I'm not being a lazy idiot here, the credits list them as "Bad Alien" and "Good Alien". I think their names might've been Tarmac and Melmac or something, I don't know, I think there was an "ac" or "ec"at the end of the names.

The Story

Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren) is a badass cop whose partner is killed during an undercover drug deal with the ridiculously named "White Boys" gang - a gang comprised of a bunch of Yuppies who drive Ferraris headed by, get this, Sherman Howard. That's right, The White Boys leader is none other than Bub the fucking zombie.


Scream Factory's TV Terrors - 12/10



 
Scream Factory "TV TERRORS" are coming to your tube soon!

Two made-for-TV horror films (both from 1978) will be coming to DVD for the first time at a low-price on 12/10.

THE INITIATION OF SARAH - Starring Key Lenz (House), Morgan Fairchild (The Seduction), Shelly Winters (The Poseidon Adventure), Morgan Brittany (Dallas), Robert Hays (Airplane!) and Tisa Farrow (Zombie).

ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE? - Starring Kathleen Beller (Dynasty), Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents), Ellen Travolta (Human Experiments) and Dennis Quaid (Jaws 3-D)

As we mentioned earlier when we announced this release at Comic Con, made-for-TV films typically have had a history of not selling well (aside from some notable exceptions out there that have huge fan bases) so we are testing the waters here to see what happens. If this performs well, we would love to tap into some other great televised favorites and bring to you a "Volume 2" in the future.

Eat A Bowl Of Fuck! Night of the Demons and Witchboard from Scream

Scream Factory just announced a couple of highly anticipated titles from director Kevin Tenney for early 2014 Blu-ray releases. 




"Director Kevin Tenney's ouija board hit WITCHBOARD and the "Eat a bowl of F*@K" classic NIGHT OF THE DEMONS (which, in particular, has quite a vocal following and has been requested many times here) will both be coming to Blu-ray in early 2014!!!!!!!!!!!

No details to report other than DEMONS will be a "Collector's Edition" and the artwork is already in the works."



I've only seen Witchboard once before so I'm not too familiar with that one, but I totally love Night of the Demons. I really enjoy most demonic possession films - especially if they involve a large group of people trapped in one location like Demons or The Convent, and Night of the Demons is probably my absolute favorite. I'm really excited to see what they do with these two titles, might I suggest a bonus CD  featuring each film's soundtrack?

Hitting Shelves 8.27

There's actually not a ton of stuff out there this week, but there's a few pretty great releases from Scream Factory and Arrow well worth adding to your collection.

Dark Angel


Detective Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren, Joshua Tree, The Expendables) thought he’d dealt with every kind of crime on earth. But now, someone is using human bodies to manufacture narcotics. Someone – or something – not of this world.
To the Alien that has arrived on earth, humans represent ideal drug factories because of our endorphins. To detective Caine, the Alien represents mankind’s worst threat. If the alien’s mission succeeds, our planet will be destroyed. Together with his straight-arrow FBI partner (Brian Benben, Private Practice) and his girlfriend, the city coroner (Betsy Brantley, Deep Impact), Caine is going to send this alien home in pieces!

I'd somehow actually never even heard of this one before, but it's one of my favorite new discoveries of the year. This one has it all; an alien drug dealer, throat slashings galore, brain spikings, so many explosions that I lost count and best of all, Dolph Lundgren really kicking a guy in the face. Any aspiring actors take note, if you miss your marks a huge Swedish dude will kick you in the face and knock you unconscious.

I can't recommend this one enough for those of you who enjoy early 90's action packed sci-fi films, it's just a great deal of fun. Pick it up now from Scream. Or Amazon if you prefer.

Q: The Winged Serpent


Its name is Quetzalcoatl, a dragon-like Aztec god that is summoned to modern-day Manhattan by a mysterious cult. But just call it “Q”…because that is all you’ll be able to say before it tears you apart! Roosting within the top of the Chrysler Building, this fearsome monster begins raining blood – from the bodies of window washers, construction workers and rooftop sunbathers alike – onto the streets of New York!
Director Larry Cohen (It’s Alive, Maniac Cop) “proves himself to be among the most creative, original and intelligent American horror film directors [with] this bizarre masterwork” (TV Guide), while the fantastic cast includes Michael Moriarty (Law & Order), who’s “fun to watch” (Roger Ebert) as a small-time thief who finds the nest of the creature, and Richard Roundtree (Shaft) and David Carradine (Kill Bill) as New York’s finest, hot on the serpentine tail of the bloodthirsty Q!

Larry Cohen's weirdo take on giant monsters hits Blu-ray for the first time with a brand new audio commentary from Cohen himself. Quetzacoatl is a pretty cool looking monster, but I'm not a big fan of the monster attack portions of the film - the stop motion stuff is just a bit too wonky for me. However Michael Moriarty is pretty great in this and he and David Carradine play off of each other amazingly well. Their back and forth is highly amusing and make Q The Winged Serpent well worth a watch.

Get it from Scream or Amazon.


For the Region B or Region Free readers out there Arrow Video has a couple of excellent classics out on Blu-ray this week; Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits, and Roger Corman's The Fall of the House of Usher. Both of which are packed with features and come in standard and steelbook cases. You can get Time Bandits and Usher can be picked up here.

THEY DIDN’T MAKE HISTORY, THEY STOLE IT!
The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python’s resident animator, this delightfully inventive children’s fantasy is about young Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs.

Along the way, he encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic, although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin’s benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of good (Ralph Richardson) and evil (David Warner)?

At the time, this was a rare example of a small-budget British film successfully taking on American blockbusters. Now, it's a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas: Gilliam and co-writer Michael Palin (who also appears) are clearly enjoying themselves as much as their audience.

Special Features:
-Brand new 2k-resolution restoration of the film from the original camera negative, approved by director and co-writer Terry Gilliam
-Original uncompressed PCM Stereo 2.0 and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio options
-Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
-Chasing Time Bandits: A new interview with Terry Gilliam
-Writing the Film that Dares Not Speak its Name: A new interview in which Michael Palin discusses co-writing and acting in Time Bandits
-The Effects of Time Bandits: A new interview in which Kent Houston, founder of the Peerless Camera Company, discusses Time Bandits’ optical effects
-Playing Evil: A new featurette in which actor David Warner remembers producer George Harrison and playing Evil in Time Bandits
-The Costumes of Time Bandits: A new interview with costume designer James Acheson
-The Look of Time Bandits: A new interview with production designer Milly Burns
-From Script to Screen – A new animated featurette in which Milly Burns takes us through her production notebooks, locations photographs and storyboards revealing how twentieth century Morocco was transformed into Ancient Greece
-Original Trailer
-Restoration Demonstration
-Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by critic James Oliver

Region B

HE BURIED HER ALIVE… TO SAVE HIS SOUL!

When exploitation maestro Roger Corman decided to raise his game by hiring Vincent Price to star in an adaptation of a classic tale by Edgar Allan Poe, he set in train a series of Poe adaptations that would redefine American horror cinema.

When Philip Winthrop (Mark Damon) visits his fiancée Madeleine Usher (Myrna Fahey) in her crumbling family mansion, her brother Roderick (Price) tries to talk him out of the wedding, explaining that the Usher family is cursed and that extending its bloodline will only prolong the agony. Madeleine wants to elope with Philip, but neither of them can predict what ruthless lengths Roderick will go to in order to keep them apart.

Richard Matheson's intelligent, literate script is enhanced by Floyd Crosby's stylish widescreen cinematography, but it's Vincent Price's anguished conviction in one of his signature roles that makes the film so chillingly memorable over half a century on.

Special Features:
-High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the feature, transferred from original film elements by MGM
-Original uncompressed 2.0 Mono PCM Audio
-Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
-Audio commentary with director and producer Roger Corman
-Legend to Legend: An interview with director and former Corman apprentice Joe Dante
-Interview with author and Gothic horror expert Jonathan Rigby
-Fragments of the House of Usher: A Specially-commissioned video essay by critic and filmmaker David Cairns examining Corman’s film in relation to Poe’s story
-Archival interview with Vincent Price
-Original Trailer
-Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
-Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and critic Tim Lucas and an extract from Vincent Price’s long out of print autobiography, illustrated with original archive stills and posters

Region B

Those of you without region free capabilities who are dying for a high def copy of Usher, it will be released next month in Scream's Vincent Price Collection set - though you will be missing out on the awesome steelbook case.

Gory & Hilarious Short Turbo Kid Goes Feature-Length

T is for Turbo was one of the films submitted for 26th Director competition for The ABC's of Death. Lee Hardcastle's T is for Toilet ended up being the winning short that made it into the movie, but Turbo Kid has impressed several very important Canadians and a full length film is now in the works. Filming begins next February and should be out before the end of 2014.



"The representatives of EMAfilms, T&A Films, the RKSS Collective and Jason Eisener are proud to announce that TURBO KID, a Canada-New Zealand co-production, has been approved for financing by both Telefilm Canada and the New Zealand Film Commission. The film project will go into production with filming scheduled for late February 2014. The production partners met at the first edition of the Fantasia International Film Festival's Frontières International Co-Production Market in July 2012, where TURBO KID was one of the Frontières projects presented.

The team will complete the financing in the coming weeks to start the prep work in early fall. Currently in discussions with various distributors and broadcasters in Canada and in the USA, the team is also starting the casting process in Canada and New Zealand. The partners are also negotiating an agreement with Films Boutique as their international sales representative.

TURBO KID is the epic tale of an orphaned outcast becoming a hero in a post-apocalyptic world. Fueled with offbeat humor and loads of splatter, TURBO KID will take genre fans to a devastated world where water is in short supply and BMXs are the preferred mode of transportation. TURBO KID is a coming-of-age story with a romantic twist, an action comedy with a heart of gold and a bellyful of guts.

TURBO KID is the story of a lonely orphan obsessed with comic books who scavenges the Wasteland in order to stay alive. When he meets a mysterious girl named Apple, he must confront his fears and look to the hero deep within himself when both are targeted by Zeus, the sadistic and self-proclaimed leader of the devastated world. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbocharged weapon, the kid embarks on an incredible journey to rid the Wasteland of evil and save the girl of his dreams."

You can check out the 5-minute short below. If you enjoy the work of Jason Eisener or Astron-6 you should absolutely love this.


Massacre Video + Vinegar Syndrome Team Up For The Nostril Picker

Massacre Video has teamed up with Vinegar Syndrome to release obscure and ridiculously titled slasher The Nostril Picker (aka The Changer).




In association with Vinegar Syndrome, we are proud to announce the release of the obscure 1988 slasher film The Changer, better known as The Nostril Picker. The release will be sourced from the original masters and will feature an array of awesome special features. This one is definitely one that fans of slasher films will not want to miss!

I've got kind of a soft spot for absurd cheap slasher films, so I'm looking forward to this one. No idea when this release will happen, but I assume not until some time in 2014.

Vercetti Technicolor - Bay Of Blood EP

Vercetti Technicolor has just released a new EP of 70's and 80's Horror flavored dark electronic music I figured some of you out there would really enjoy. The EP is called Bay of Blood (although it uses Anthropophagus artwork), and you can listen to it below. If you like what you hear, be sure to pick up a digital or limited 12" vinyl copy directly from the Giallo Disco bandcamp page.


“Vercetti Technicolor’s Bay Of Blood EP rises from salt water graves upon lost voodoo cursed Islands. ‘Tropical Terror Suite I’ is a perfect introduction, vast landscapes of post-apocalyptic beauty, and yet somehow the dead birds still sing. Jungle Witch Hunt’s frantic percussion mirrors your own heartbeat as you journey further into the wilderness, machete slipping from a nervous sweat. Tema Di Kerstin is its own lost temple, its own monolith… Inferno sees you face to face with a long dead beast fighting for your life. The final scene finds ‘Inferno’ remixed through the terrifying lens of Not Not Fun’s Xander Harris accentuating the cosmic disco elements into a storming dancefloor heavyweight, after the void… there is only space… ” 

 

V/H/S2 - Blu-ray/DVD/VHS Combo September 24th

 Magnolia has just announced a release date for the upcoming release of V/H/S/2. September 24th is the date you'll be able to pick up the Blu-ray/DVD/VHS (yes, VHS) combo pack. Those of you who aren't interested in gimmicks, or who don't own a VCR (though really, everyone should have at least one VCR in storage somewhere) need not worry, there will be standard Blu-ray and DVD releases as well. You can preorder today at Amazon.

I didn't get around to seeing this one during the VOD release, but I'm looking forward to seeing it so I can finally see just what the hell is going on with the image of that bloody dude in his underwear. I'm hoping there is a bit less shakiness in this sequel, the shaky cam in the first film activated my motion sickness almost immediately, I nearly barfed about half an hour in.

I think they're gonna need a bigger box.


From the innovative minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his abandoned house and find another collection of mysterious VHS tapes. In viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be terrifying motives behind the student’s disappearance.

Bonus Features 
  • Tape 49 Rewind 
  • Dissecting Phase I Clinical Trials 
  • Inside Safe Haven 
  • Slumber Party Alien Abduction: Behind the Lights 
  • A Ride in the Park: I Dare You 
  • AXS TV: A Look at V/H/S/2

Witchboard 2: The Devil's Doorway From Olive Films October 15th

Olive has just announced Witchboard 2 for an October 15th release. This is their second Ami Dolenz movie from 1993 that they've released this year, the first being Ticks which came out back in January. If Olive wants to keep putting out Ami Dolenz stuff from the early 90's, might I suggest Miracle Beach? I'd love to see that one get a proper release. Of course, I could just watch this instead.


• AUDIO COMMENTARY with writer and director KEVIN S. TENNEY
• BEHIND-THE-SCENES FEATURETTE – Includes interviews with AMI DOLENZ,
LARAINE NEWMAN, TIMOTHY GIBBS, JULIE MICHAELS, KEVIN S. TENNEY
• Two Deleted Scenes
• Two Home Video Trailers
• Three TV Spots
 
They've put out a lot of stuff, but I've yet to check out an Olive release. Their roster features several movies I'd like to buy, but that I'm just not willing to drop $25 for. Night of the Demons 2 and Ticks are both great fun, but not $25 fun. Definitely plan on grabbing them if Amazon ever does an Olive sale in the future.

Science Team Now Officially A Thing - Check Out The Teaser Trailer Now

Science Team is the latest film from The Taint director Drew Bolduc. They had an Indiegogo campaign a few months ago and it looks like they were able to raise enough cash to get it finished. They've just posted a new teaser trailer on the site, which you can see below. The teaser is only about 20 seconds long, so it's pretty vague, but I did catch a glimpse of a wheelchair suicide and what appeared to be the pulsating flesh of some hellish alien creature. Sold.



 If you're interested in becoming a member of the Science Team, too bad, it's not a real organization. However, you can fool people into thinking you belong to this fake organization by picking up one of two official Science Team t-shirts (or, fuck it, Drew's a cool dude, buy 'em both), they're on sale for $15 a piece now through the 23rd.





Chopping Mall Getting 4K Theatrical Re-Release This Halloween


Here's some pretty out of left field news from director Jim Wynorski regarding his film Chopping Mall:

The ink is drying on the contracts and we'll soon be making a 4K transfer for theatrical re-release in October. A retro Halloween special.


Sure, Chopping Mall is a lot of fun, with deranged killbots and plenty of exploding heads, but I didn't think it had nearly a big enough following to warrant a 4K theatrical re-release. This sounds like it'll be a great time at the movies, but theaters near me never seem to get any of these kinds of releases so I'll probably miss out on it. However, Jim himself mentioned a Blu-ray release will be coming some time in 2014, which I'll certainly be picking up.

Yummy Mummy & Fruit Brute Rise From The Grave


In cereal news yesterday (there's a sentence I can't imagine writing twice in my lifetime) General Mills  announced that this Halloween instead of the usual 3 monster cereals we usually see, we'll be getting 5 this year. That's right, they've decided to revive Yummy Mummy and Fruit Brute (now Frute Brute) for the first time in over 20 years (31 years actually for Fruit Brute, which ceased production way back in 1982).

I never got a chance to try either of them (although I was 11 when Yummy Mummy was taken off the market, I've never actually seen a box before). The monster cereals should be popping up in stores any day now, and I being the bearded weirdo that I am will be grabbing the whole set the second I see them.

For more info, take a look at the official General Mills blog. And here's a look at your complete 2013 Monster Cereal roster:

Hitting Shelves 8.20

Way too many great new releases today, here are some of the best that I recommend picking up.

From Scream comes their second double feature Blu-ray release (following their excellent Terrorvision/Video Dead set). This set features a couple of rarities lovingly rescued from Slasher obscurity; Boaz Davisdon's X-Ray and David Paulsen's Schizoid. Anyone else reminded of the opening murder scene in The Burning when they see that Schizoid artwork?



X-RAY, aka HOSPITAL MASSACRE (1982)

This movie will scare the life out of you! Susan Jeremy (Barbi Benton, Deathstalker) goes to a local hospital for a “routine examination.” Once inside, she discovers that someone doesn’t want her to check out…unless it’s in a body bag. A psychotic killer keeps her trapped inside the hospital, having fixed her x-rays to make it look like she has a terminal illness. Meanwhile, he brutally murders everyone she comes in contact with!

 SCHIZOID (1980)

In this “lurid shocker” (Leonard Maltin), a newspaper advice columnist (Marianna Hill, Blood Beach) starts receiving threats from a mysterious person. At the same time, the female members of her psychiatrist’s (Klaus Kinski, Crawlspace) therapy group are being murdered one by one…by a maniac wielding a large pair of scissors. Could these incidents be linked? Donna Wilkes (Angel, Jaws 2), Craig Wasson (Body Double), Flo Gerrish (Don’t Answer The Phone) and Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future) also star.


I just had a chance to check both films out yesterday, so look for a review of that release soon. Fans of odd obscure slashers can grab this one from Shout Factory.



Vinegar Syndrome's long awaited Summer release of Marvin Chomsky's Good Luck, Miss Wyckoff also
hits today. I didn't get a screener copy of this one to, uh, screen, but the reviews have been very positive, and to sweeten the deal the release even features a bonus CD of the film's soundtrack. The bonus soundtrack is always a favorite bonus feature of mine, I wish more soundtracks were included in Blu-ray and DVD releases. Although I'd probably buy way more movies - I just dropped close to $20 on Blood Tracks because the inclusion of a bonus CD was too enticing to pass up. Now if the guy I bought it from would ship the thing...

Kino continues their Franco releases with a trio of titles that consists of 1962's The Awful Dr. Orlof, 1970's awkwardly titled Nightmares Come At Night and 1973's A Virgin Among the Living Dead (one of the 10 films Jess cranked out that year).

Generally considered the first horror film produced in Spain, THE AWFUL DR. ORLOF (L'horrible Docteur Orlof ) launched the career of cult cinema's most colorful figure: Jesus "Jess" Franco. Cloaking the story in the visual style of the British gothic film, Franco injected ORLOF with the kind of morbid eroticism that would quickly become his signature (and is presented here in the uncensored French release version).

Howard Vernon stars as a diabolical surgeon who, with the help of his blind minion Morpho (Ricardo Valle), lures beautiful women into the operating room of his stone castle, so they may provide the raw materials for a series of experimental face grafts for his disfigured daughter.
 

For years considered a lost Franco film (after having played at a single theatre in Belgium), NIGHTMARES COME AT NIGHT (Les cauchemars naissent la nuit) was rediscovered in 2004 and has been recognized as a key film in the evolution of Franco's cinema, which in 1970 was assuming a dreamlike logic, governed more by the director's libido than traditional horror movie structure.

Diana Lorys (The Awful Dr. Orlof ) stars as a sultry dancer who falls under the hypnotic control of the sinister blonde Cynthia (Colette Giacobine) and begins to suffer terrifying hallucinations, from which not even a gifted psychiatrist (Paul Muller) can save her. Meanwhile, a pair of jewel thieves (Soledad Miranda and Jack Taylor) hide out at a nearby house, biding their time until they can confront Cynthia for their share of a recent heist.



Redemption celebrates the life and career of Jess Franco (1930- 2013) with a deluxe edition of his mystifying erotic thriller: A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD (Une vierge chez les morts vivant ). Christina von Blanc stars as a woman who journeys to her ancestral home and finds herself surrounded by the restless spirits of her eccentric family, who may or may not be alive.

This disc includes two complete versions of the film: Franco's original cut (CHRISTINA, PRINCESS OF EROTICISM) and the re-release version (A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD), which was expanded to incorporate zombie scenes directed by French horror auteur Jean Rollin (The Living Dead Girl). Also included is the softcore footage shot to create a third version of the film.

You can pick up all three Francos on Blu-ray and DVD directly from Kino.



The Unseen - From Scorpion Releasing. The 2008 Code Red DVD release went out of print and quickly rose to pretty absurd prices on eBay. Scorpion has managed to get ahold of the title and they're presenting it on Blu-ray for the first time. If you haven't seen it, it's a pretty slow film, but it's better than its reputation would lead one to believe. Good atmosphere, weird monster, Barbara Bach, it's not bad. Anyone interested in picking this one up, Diabolik has the current lowest price I've seen.
A TV reporter (Barbara Bach) and two friends head to Solvang, California, to cover a Danish festival. When a mix-up at the hotel leaves them stranded without hotel rooms, the girls accept the invitation of a friendly museum owner to board at his farmhouse.But what the women don't know is that something is living in the basement of that farmhouse. Something unspeakable. And their stay soon becomes a horrific nightmare when they encounter the "unseen". From an original story by make up legends Stan Winston (PUMPKINHEAD) & Tom Burman, written by Kim Henkel of TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE fame. - See more at: http://www.diabolikdvd.com/category/Horror-%5Bsl%5D-Thriller/Unseen-(Scorpion-Releasing)-(Blu~Ray).html#sthash.Io6Vpz5k.dpuf

And finally, for those of you with Region Free capabilities (or who live somewhere where Region B is the actual region your Blu-ray player plays) is one of my most anticipated Arrow Video releases of the year, the Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack of Deranged: Confessions of a Necrophile. The film was directed by Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things stars Alan Ormsby and Jeff Gillen (who played Santa in A Christmas Story). It's a great mix of pitch black humor and gritty unsettling horror with a tremendous lead performance from Roberts Blossom (who you might also remember as the "evil" old man who saves Kevin's ass in Home Alone).

I haven't checked this Arrow release out yet, but holy hell is this thing packed with features:
Special Features:
-High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the unrated version, featuring the infamous ‘brain-scooping scene’, available uncut in the UK for the first time!
-Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
-Audio commentary with special effects artist Tom Savini
-Introduction to the film by Savini
-A Blossoming Brilliance: Scott Spiegel (Intruder, Evil Dead II) speaks about Deranged star Roberts Blossom and the lasting legacy of this gore-soaked gem
-Ed Gein: From Murder to Movies - Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipide II) discusses the lurid legacy of the Wisconsin serial killer and the secrets of portraying a cinematic psychopath
-The Wages of Sin – Making of featurette comprising newly transferred 16mm production footage plus an archive interview with director Jeff Gillen
-Original Trailer

-Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Nat Marsh

Do yourselves a favor and pick this one up from Arrow, it kinda rules.

Ghoulish Gary Pullin Covers Darkman

Scream Factory has added the legendary Ghoulish Gary Pullin to their roster of cover artists, and his first piece is this cover for their forthcoming release of Sam Raimi's Darkman. You guys know the deal with Scream's commissioned covers, if you don't like the art (see every comment on the Facebook page about every single piece of art Scream posts) the original poster art will be on the flipside. I generally really dig Pullin's art, but I just think this one's okay. I mean, any piece of art with Dr. Giggles holding a machine gun can't possibly be bad, but I'm not blown away by the art - I think it's mostly the Frances McDormand bit that's throwing the cover off. Of course the art doesn't truly matter on a movie release as long as the A/V quality is solid. You can always print out a custom cover if it's that big of a deal.




Squirrels - Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Out Back


Here's a film coming soon that looks too ridiculous not to love:

SQUIRRELS is a new horror-thriller from Bazelevs, Timur Bekmambetov’s production company. The film was written by Daniel Antoniazzi and Ben Shiffrin, based on an idea by Bekmambetov. Lisa Ellzey and Michele Wolkoff are executive producers. 
  
When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company. 


Details For Scream Factory's "Cabal Cut" of Nightbreed

Details have emerged for Scream's upcoming release of the mega-sized (nearly 3 hour) "Cabal Cut" of Clive Barker's Nightbreed. I've only seen the studio butchered version, and that was probably 12 years ago and my memories of it are almost non-existent. In my mind I recall it being kinda like a high brow, classy version of Basket Case III, only with David Cronenberg instead of Annie Ross, but I think that's probably pretty inaccurate. As you can see, I'm quite hazy on any details from the actual film, so I'm  looking forward to checking out this proper version once it comes out.

 Read on for the press release



Shout! Factory and Morgan Creek Productions officially announced today a strategic distribution alliance to bring Clive Barker’s classic horror film Nightbreed extended director’s cut to the home entertainment marketplace in the U.S and Canada and on digital entertainment platforms next year. The announcement was made by Shout! Factory’s founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos along with David Robinson, President of Morgan Creek Productions. The news initially broke at Comic-Con 2013; however, the agreement formally reached by both parties occurred today.
For years rumors swirled about substantial missing footage from the film. A fan-driven movement, Occupy Midian, was created to see the full version of the film restored and re-released, which was not only a more faithful adaptation of Clive Barker’s book Cabal, but is what originally he intended Nightbreed to be.

Clive Barker said, “I had a dream about the tribes of the moon. They would live in a city called Midian, and, though they were monsters of every shape and size, they would be the heroes of a movie called 'Nightbreed.' However, when I made the movie, the studio was not comfortable with this inversion of the classic structure. They wanted the monsters to be simple-minded scare machines, while I wanted them to be the dark side of all of us, mysterious and misunderstood. Finally, with this new version of 'Nightbreed,' which contains over forty-five minutes of previously unseen material, my original vision has been realized. Come with me to Midian, the city of monsters. The tribes of the moon await us.”

“We are excited by this opportunity with Morgan Creek and are huge fans of Clive Barker. His cinematic works and brilliant storytelling continue to captivate fans worldwide,” stated Shout! Factory’s founders in a joint statement. “We look forward to working closely with Clive to bring his original vision to life.”

Shout!’s SCREAM FACTORY plans an aggressive rollout of the Nightbreed extended director’s cut through physical home entertainment releases and a variety of digital entertainment distribution platforms sometimes next year.

“We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the fans,” noted Robinson. “Without their hard work and persistence, this would have never become a reality. Clive Barker is one of the greats, and we are tremendously proud and excited to be working with him and Shout! Factory on this release.”

The original Nightbreed was released in 1990 by Morgan Creek Productions and Twentieth Century Fox. Directed by Clive Barker, the film starred Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby and David Cronenberg and centered on a tribe of monsters and outcasts known as the Nightbreed that hide from humanity.

Arrow Teases Tomorrow's Release of Deranged

Arrow's Blu-ray release of Deranged (with complete brain scooping scene intact) is out tomorrow and they've posted a couple of great teaser videos online which you can find below. The second clip is especially worth a look as it shows you some entertaining behind the scenes FX footage.



You can order Deranged now from Arrow Video

The Last American Virgin on Blu-ray From Arrow Video

Arrow Video has just put out their full press release for their upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of The Last American Virgin from director Boaz Davidson (whose Slasher film X-Ray hits Blu-ray this Tuesday from Scream Factory). Sure this release isn't horror related at all, but Diane Franklin is in it and Diane Franklin is awesome. So awesome in fact that she's put out an official autobiography titled “The Excellent Adventure of the Last American, French-Exchange Babe of the 80s” which you can check out here: www.dianefranklin80sbook.com.



One of the quintessential teen movies of the 1980’s, this special release marks the first time that film will be available to own in the UK on Blu-ray and DVD formats.

Starring scream queen Diane Franklin in the role that made her an icon, alongside Lawrence Monoson and Steve Antin, Arrow’s dual format Blu-ray & DVD release of THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN will come loaded with special features and bonus material.

Alongside exclusive featurettes, a reversible sleeve (featuring original and newly commissioned artwork) and the original trailer, the deluxe package will include a collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film and another fantastic interview with horror aficionado Eli Roth (Hostel), who is a huge fan of the movie.

THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN follows Gary, Rick and David – three American teenagers with one thing on their mind...

They move from party to party, trying out their latest chat-up lines, which usually end in miserable failure, especially for Gary, who’s more interested in finding true romance than a quick fumble in someone's parents' bedroom.

When new girl Karen (Diane Franklin) arrives at the boy’s high school, Gary falls head over heels in love, but Rick's baser intentions towards her threaten to jeopardise their friendship for good.

Championed by Roth as one of the most underrated films of its era, THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN is a raucous but surprisingly intelligent and sobering look at the hideousness of growing up, peer pressures, misplaced expectations and unforeseen consequences.

It's also acts as a superb snapshot of the early Eighties music scene, with the soundtrack featuring Blondie, Devo, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Police, U2 and many others.


A full breakdown of the special features and bonus material included in this dual format release is as follows:
- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the film, available in the UK for the first time!
- Original uncompressed PCM Stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray.
- Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.
- “The First American Remake” – A new interview with director Boaz Davidson.
- “Memories of a Pizza Boy” – A new interview with star Lawrence Monoson.
- “Babe of the Eighties” – A new interview with star Diane Franklin.
- “In Praise of Smaller Movies” – An interview with cinematographer Adam Greenberg.
- Original Trailer.
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by The Red Dress.
- Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and publisher Robin Bougie and an interview with THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN super fan Eli Roth conducted by Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and posters.

This release is Region B/2 locked. Preorder it today at Arrow.

Evilspeak + Curse of the Blue Lights From Code Red

Code Red has finally gotten some brand new Horror releases out for us to devour. First, we can watch as Eaglebauer wreaks digitally demonic havoc on his tormentors in Evilspeak. Then, we've got Curse of the Blue Lights, which I've never seen, but appears to involve a fat homosexual zombie pharaoh and a stop-motion demon that's like something the creators of Winterbeast would've deemed even too silly to be in Winterbeast. 

The site says "Shipping in 3 Weeks", but I've read of a few people already getting theirs just days after ordering, so I'd ignore the "3 Week" thing.

Glad to see these two releases, though if that goddamn Family Honor trailer rears it's ugly head when I pop the discs in I'm gonna scream. I'm not even interested in the movie and I've seen that trailer at least 49 times - he's had that trailer open so many discs that I've lost count. What do you think this is, Sicily? 

And now, onto the titles: 


 


Curse of the Blue Lights - $19.99
