The Haunting/In The Mouth Of Madness/TCM: The Beginning on Blu-ray this October

All 3 are out October 15th, just in time for Halloween. I'm personally not too big on In The Mouth of Madness or Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, but The Haunting is fantastic. No features announced for either title yet, but here are the announcements I swiped from

The Haunting
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of director Robert Wise and screenwriter Nelson Gidding's The Haunting. The 1963 horror classic stars Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson and Russ Tamblyn, and streets on October 15th.

Official Synopsis: No one lives in the 90-year-old Hill House. Or so it seems. But come in. Even if you don't believe in ghosts, there's no denying the terror of The Haunting. Wise, whose started his directorial career with The Curse of the Cat People (1944), made his return to psychological horror for this first screen adaptation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. Four people (Harris, Bloom, Johnson and Tamblyn) come to the house to study its supernatural phenomena. Or has the house drawn at least one of them to it?

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is bringing director Jonathan Liebesman's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning to Blu-ray this Fall. The twisted prequel to the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper's horror classic stars Jordana Brewster, Taylor Handley, Matt Bomer, Diora Baird, Andrew Bryniarski and R. Lee Ermey, and streets on October 15th.

Synopsis: 1969. The conflict in Vietnam has exploded to immeasurable proportions, and 18-year-old Dean Hill's (Handley) number is up. Dean's brother Eric (Bomer), who has already seen his share of combat, plans to take Dean to enlist in his beloved Marine Corps in hopes of keeping an eye on him rather than letting him take his chances at the local induction center. But Dean plans to confront Eric about dodging the draft after the boys and their respective girlfriends, Bailey (Baird) and Chrissie (Brewster), head across Texas for a final fling of serious fun. Soon after their journey begins, the foursome are spooked by a menacing pair of bikers, who causes a car accident and then attempts to rob the injured trio. However, Sheriff Hoyt (Ermey) arrives and turns the tables on their would-be assassin, before ordering Dean, Eric and Bailey into the back of the patrol car.

Unbeknownst to Chrissie, who watches everything happen from hiding, Hoyt is headed to the Hewitt family home where a man named Thomas (Bryniarski) is being groomed to become the terrifying monster known as Leatherface, and the rest of the Hewitt clan await. Chrissie attempts to convince Holden to help her, but he is on a one man rampage to avenge his girlfriend's death. As Chrissie witnesses the horrors inflicted by the Hewitt family upon the people she loves, she realizes she is their only hope of survival.

In The Mouth of Madness
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of director John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness, which stars Sam Neill, Julie Carmen, Jurgen Prochnow, David Warner, John Glover, Bernie Casey, Charlton Heston, Frances Bay and a young Hayden Christensen. The Lovecraftian cult classic arrives on Blu-ray in time for Halloween, on October 15th.

Synopsis: Best-selling author and Stephen King contemporary Sutter Cane's newest novel is literally driving his readers insane. When the author inexplicably vanishes, an insurance investigator named John Trent (Sam Neill) is hired by Arcane Publishing director Jackson Harglow (Charlton Heston) to track the author down. But Trent, along with Cane's editor Linda Styles (Julie Carmen), soon finds himself crossing the barrier between fact and fiction, and entering a terrifying world of evil and madness from which there is no escape.
