The Latest Announcements

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (SE) - October 10

As JoBlo stated, nothing really to write home this week on the DVD front. Although I'm digging the special edition of this, something about the "new" cover reminds of another popular, more recent horror flick that starts with, "S" and ends in "AW" and rhymes with, "Paw".

  • A new two disc Rocky: Special Collector's Edition will hit on December 5th which will include a Sly commentary (as in "the man commentary," not a "cunning or wily commentary"), commentary with trainer Lou Duba and commentator Bert Sugar, deleted scenes, making of documentaries and plenty more; on the same day you can gank the Rocky Anthology with all five films in brand new remastered transfers.

  • Oliver Stone plans to release a three hour and forty five minute version of Alexander. For those of you counting at home, this will be the third DVD release. Since senility is a highly probable factor, Stone may think it's the first.
