Universal is hoping to recoup some of the revenue that the box office run for The Skeleton Key (see Arrow's review) didn't make with the release of the DVD. Hitting shelves on November 15th, the mixed-review Horror/Thriller will at least provide 2 hours of Eye-Candy in Kate Hudson. The cover art also ain 't too shabby if I may say so myself. Here's what else can be found locked inside the DVD...


  • Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen
  • English, French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks
  • Over 20 minutes of scenes not shown in theaters
  • An audio commentary with director Iain Softley
  • A KateHudson's Ghost Story featurette
  • An Exploring Voodoo/Hoodoo featurette
  • A making of featurette
  • A Blues in the Bayou featurette

Surprisingly enough, The Skeleton key isn't going along with the rest of the recently released horror DVD's and it's sticking to it's PG-13 rating Click here to pre-order the DVD...


Empire Pictures is releasing the cult classic 70's Television show that starred none other than than Vincent Price. On October 18th, The Hilarious House of Frightenstein. The TV series was a Canadian kids' show directed by Riff Markowitz that ran for 130 episodes beginning in 1971, with Billy Van starring as Count Frightenstein and a bunch of other creepy/funny characters in sketches combining humor with “edutainment.” This first disc will contain the four best episodes of the show . However, in early 2006, there will be more episodes making their way to DVD...

The perfect gift for all Kiddies on Halloween, it is the most important holiday after all, well to me at least...Pre Order the FuN!


No this is not the title of that marriage between two 70 year-old's you read about. This is more along the lines of a little flick by Dave Gebroe.

  • Director's commentary track
  • Actors' commentary track

  • Gag reel
  • Audition tapes
  • ZOMBIE HONEYMOON excerpts from Christopher Garetano's HORROR BUSINESS documentary

It seems to me that this guy is in no position to be cracking jokes, unless he want's a few more shovel shots to the kisser...
