RETURN TO HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL -October 16TH

Here it is folks, the first ever 'choose your own adventure' DVD! Yes, it's a STD sequel to fairly awesome remake, but hot damn does it look promising! Better than you'd probably expect, that's for damn sure. And the cover? Hey, I'd buy that for a dollar. Actually, this here cover may even be better than the originals... only, where the flock is the house?

The Goods:

  • 2.40:1 anamorphic widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • Return to House on Haunted Hill Additional Scenes

    HOLLOW MAN: DIRECTOR’S CUT - October 16th

    Invisible boob grab. That's all HOLLOW MAN needed for me to rate it high on the awesome list. That one scene alone made this film DVD collection worthy, and now in this unrated director's cut... well, it can only go up from here. Entertaining trash at it's finest, and only The Bacon could be that creepy while being invisible. That's skill, baby!

    The Goods:

  • Digitally Remastered Widescreen Version
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • 8 Minutes of Never-Before-Scene Footage

    PLANET TERROR - October 16th

    Last week we spied the DEATH PROOF DVD cover art and specs, and here we have the other half of GRINDHOUSE, PLANET TERROR! I dig the cover here, even if there is a lot going on, and in true Robert Rodriguez fashion, the features are packing quite a punch. Only downfall? Now that we've seen the specs for both separately released GRINDHOUSE films, the big question still remains: where the hell are those faux trailers? As far as I can tell, they're nowhere to be found. Boo.

    The Goods:

  • 2 Disc Extended Cut
  • Additional footage and a missing reel
  • Audio commentary by writer/director Rodriguez
  • Deleted scenes
  • Cooking School featurette
  • 10-Minute Film School featurette
  • Further featurettes on the stunts and makeup and effects
  • Badass Babes featurette
  • Renegade Guys featurette
  • Featurettes on the costumes and production design
  • International trailer

    SPECIES IV: THE AWAKENING -October 2nd

    The whole SPECIES series combines two elements that are perfect for each: hot naked chicks, and scary looking aliens. And this STD installment to the series is no exception. Weak as f*ck in the feature department, but scoring high on the 'hot chick on the cover' department, so it's all good in the hood. Likely worth a rental, and possible a blind buy if you own the rest of the series. Speaking of which...

    The Goods:

  • 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround

    SPECIES: COLLECTOR’S EDITION -October 2nd

    If you're contemplating whether to buy part IV, or the original in this brand new collector's edition, I'd say go with this one. Great cast, sweet effects, one smokin' hot naked babe (who gets naked multiple times throughout), and this edition is sporting enough extras that may even warrant a double dip. Hell, I'd buy this for two dollars!

    The Goods:

  • 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1
  • DTS 5.1
  • audio commentary by Natasha Henstridge, Michael Madsen and Director Roger Donaldson

    DVD Covers:

    Honorable Mentions:

    SAW III: Director’s Cut –October 23rd - Because the unrated version wasn’t brutal enough… plus, what better way to prepare for part IV?

    THE CHURCH –October 30th – Because there’s nothing scarier on earth than church. This movie just has the balls to come out and say it.

    CANNIBAL MAN –November 13th – Because this is one f*cked up, and yet, totally awesome cover. Don’t you just wanna check it out, if only for curiosity sake?

    That's all for this week! Stay tuned every week for your latest DVD news, and as always, feel free to shoot me an email (ammongilbert@joblo.com ) for any & all DVD news, scoops, and easter eggs!
