KAW -October 23rd
While the idea of a movie featuring killer birds has been done before (i.e. THE BIRDS), there's just something so damn appealing to this flick- like, I know it won't do anything we haven't seen before, but doesn't it look fun? Seriously though, birds may be some of the scariest creatures out there, so the potential for this to be awesome is way up there. I am perplexed about one thing though: this whole bird on a side mirror of a car, just sitting there, and then there's this guy and this girl hanging out the back door...? What does it all mean? How does that make any sense? Why do I even care???
FOX HORROR CLASSICS COLLECTION - October 9TH
The funny thing about 'classics' these days is that anything made in the 1940s and 50s are deemed as 'classics'. Doesn't matter if they really are or not, they're old, so they're classic. Right? Like this triple feature featuring HANGOVER SQUARE, THE LODGER, and THE UNDYING MONSTER. If they're so classic, why haven't I heard them before? Maybe it's because I suck and don't know my film history... or maybe they're trying to sell these as 'classics' just because they're old. Ah well. I think I'll go stick my head in an over now.

VINCENT PRICE: MGM SCREAM LEGENDS COLLECTION -October 30th
If you can name any actor who is a bonafide legend of the horror screen moreso than Vincent Price, I'll give you a a billion dollars. Or at least an I.O.U. (hey- I'm good for it). The man, the myth, the legend busts out on the scene here with his own respectable collection of features (seven, to be exact) and an army of special features to keep you tied to your TV for at least a week (if not more). If THE FLY COLLECTION was your thang, then this will blow your mind.
o Audio commentary with producer Philip Waddilove and actor Ian Ogilvy
o “The Art Of Fear” featurette
o “Working With Vincent Price” featurette
