CREEPSHOW – 2 Disc Special Edition -October 22rd (UK Only)
Those lucky bastards in the UK! While I'm sure it's only a matter of time before we can get our grubby North American hands on this Special Edition, we're sure as shit not getting it anytime soon! Using the classic cover art (love the posters in the background!), this 2 disc set features lots fun background stuff for the CREEPSHOW fan in all of us. If it doesn't hit the US, just remember, there's always eBay....
TRANSFORMERS - October 16th
Wow. Talk about fast! Released in July, out on DVD in October- this might be a new record for turnaround time. Especially considering the massive size of this blockbuster. Lotsa features, lotsa stuff you'd expect from a Michael Bay set, if you dug this trash in theaters, you'll likely start to speem now in anticipation. If you're like me, this is just another item you can use for target practice with your new shot gun. Either way, have fun.

FIDO - October 23rd
Another year, another zombie comedy hit. Gotta love it. While this cover doesn't do ANYTHING for me, except kinda piss me off for some reason, I can dig where FIDO is coming from, and can't wait to check it out this Halloween. Perfect timing! Plus, what a great idea- I mean, seriously, who wouldn't want their very own pet zombie???
CUTTING CLASS –October 23rd - Because it’s f*cking Brad Pitt in a slasher film waaaaaaay before he hit it big!
NAILED –September 11th – Because shoving nails through hands and other body parts is f*cking sick. In a good way.
MOH: THE DAMNED THING –October 16th – Because the cover here is awesome, plus it’s from your friend and mine, Tobe Hooper!
