New This Week 8.12.14 - Bigfeet and Brain Slurping Midgets

Arrow Video released their Region B locked release of Motel Hell last year, and now Scream Factory is giving US fans a chance to own the film in High Defnition as well. The Scream Factory release shares the same eye-pleasing transfer as the Arrow release, and while the Scream disc drops one of the previous bonus features (Back to the Backwoods), it keeps all the others and includes three new bonus features exclusive to this release.

You really are what you eat with Farmer Vincent's smoked meat in this creepy horror yarn that "packs a punch that goes way beyond mere terror" (Boxoffice). Vincent's popular products contain a special ingredient that the psychotic farmer and his sister would literally kill to keep a secret! Starring Rory Calhoun (Angel), Nancy Parsons (Porky’s), Nina Axelrod (Time Walker, Cobra) and John Ratzenberger (Cheers), and directed by Kevin Connor (From Beyond The Grave, At The Earth’s Core), this darkly funny flick "just might be your cup of meat" (L.A. Herald Examiner)!

    Also from Troma, with a way less legit looking cover, is Bloodsucking Freaks:

    BLOODSUCKING FREAKS has earned a world-wide reputation as being a film unlike anything ever seen before in the history of the cinema. It has been held over in certain theatres across the U.S. for over a full year! BLOODSUCKING FREAKS takes you to a bizarre Off-Broardway theatre of the macabre, operated by a deranged impresario. Inside, sadistic entertainments are staged for his audience’s pleasure, including tortures, dismemberments, and other gruesome acts which appear to be faked. When people begin disappearing off the streets of Manhattan, the twisted truth begins to chillingly sink in: these horrifying bloodcurdling acts are not theatrical at all. They are real! You’ll be GROSSED OUT by the unique mélange of humor and horror as the impresario’s horde of beautiful teenage girls, who are kept in cages and “perform” on command, take over the show and devise a nasty game of their own! You’ll SCREAM YOUR HEAD OFF as the “fun” climaxes in one of the most unforgettable scenes in movie history!

    Desperate to escape both a world she never wanted to be part of and the man who turned her into a werewolf, Elena abandons her Pack and takes refuge in a new city, starting over with a hot new romance and a successful photography career. But when bodies turn up in the werewolf sanctuary, Elena is torn between the life she s building and the wild and dangerously unpredictable one she thought she left behind. Based on the Women of the Otherworld novels by #1 New York Times best selling author Kelley Armstrong. Includes all 13 UNCUT episodes featuring footage not seen on American television.

    Renee Olstead of The Secret Life of the American Teenager stars as a partying teen whose friends decide to perform an ancient pagan ritual found online called The Midnight Game: Candles are lit. A drop of blood is spilled. Your worst fear is confessed and an entity is summoned. But if the rules are not followed exactly, punishment is promised. Tonight, the game is not being taken seriously. A demonic horror has been unleashed. And now, even daylight cannot stop the nightmares that may destroy them all. Shelby Young (American Horror Story), Guy Wilson (Days Of Our Lives), Valentina de Angelis (Gossip Girl) and Spencer Daniels (Mom) co-star in this eerie chiller inspired by true events.
