SHADOW: DEAD RIOT – UNRATED COLLECTOR’S EDITION - September 12th
I must live under a rock and keep my fingernail clippings in a box because somehow I missed this Tony Todd gem when it came out on video a few years back. I don’t know how, it’s a dreadlocked Candyman in prison, what’s not to like here? Anyhow, it looks like it might be a good thing I waited because this Unrated Edition is looking to kick a bunch of ass, and it’s fully packed with 2 discs of good shite. Perfect filler for anyone just waiting for the next CANDYMAN movie (and from what I hear, it’s gonna be quite the wait). Bring on the music video!
LIVE FEED - September 26th
Ok, so the cover here might be ripping off like 4 or 5 films, but does that mean the film itself will be a rehashed pile of donkey-doo? Well, maybe. Just remember, this ain’t the flick starring porn master Ron Jeremy (that’s DEAD MEAT, yo), so just be careful what you pick up when you… you know, pick it up. Again, released in both Rated (why? I mean, really- what’s the point here?) and Unrated (paydirt!), this could be the STD we’ve all been waiting for. Or not.
The Goods: Both Films
REST STOP- October 17th
And here you thought slashers were dead. Well, they’re not, and REST STOP is out to prove it! Somehow this premise hasn’t been hit up before, as rest stop’s in general can be pretty f*ckin’ scary in real life, and when you throw a couple of semi’s and few old beat up pick-up trucks in the mix, you have yourself a classic in the making. Plus, did I mention Joey F*cking Lawrence is in this badboy? Well, he is- and get this- he plays a cop, of all people. Whoa is right! Rated and Unrated will be released at the same time, with the Unrated version scoring all the sweet features…
NIGHTMARE & DREAMSCAPES - October 24th
Now that was quick! If you caught the commercial free premiere of this mini-series on TNT this week and liked what you saw, then you can sit back with a silly grin on your face and know that the entire series will be on DVD commercial free in just a few months. 3 discs, 8 episodes, a bunch of stars and Stephen King. Now here’s a series to get excited about.
TALES FROM THE CRYPT: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON - October 31st
It seems like only yesterday the First Season hit, and now look were we’re at- Season Five! To tell ya the truth, I didn’t even think it lasted 5 seasons, but apparently I have no idea what the hell’s going on. Perfect day for release, as you’ll be able to soak in all 13 episodes on Halloween- of course, you’ll have no time for trick-or-treating, bobbing for apples, or getting piss-faced drunk and puking in your neighbors front yard, but hey, you can always wait for the day after…
VOODOO CURSE: THE GIDDEH– August 15th – Because voodoo curses are crazy weird, and you never know what you’re gonna get from a flick like this.
POPULATION 436 - September 5th – Because it stars Fred Durst. I shit you not, it really does.
THE DEVIL’S RAIN – October 31st - Because this cult fave is about the devil peeing on people. Ok. Not really. But it’s a classic anyway!
