"The Beast Must Die" Blu-Ray Review (Severin Films)
In the swan song horror production from ‘The Studio That Dripped Blood’, Peter Cushing, Calvin Lockhart (COTTON COMES TO HARLEM), Charles Gray (THE DEVIL RIDES OUT), Anton Diffring (CIRCUS OF HORRORS) and Marlene Clark (GANJA & HESS) star in a ‘70s whodunit like no other. An eccentric millionaire has invited a group of eight colleagues to his island estate to hunt the deadliest game of all: One of the guests is a werewolf, and will be stalked and slaughtered for sport. But who is the lycanthrope, and do they have a shocking plan of their own? Michael Gambon (Dumbledore in the HARRY POTTER movies) co-stars in this “fast-moving and enormously entertaining” (SexGoreMutants) shocker from director Paul Annett (“EastEnders”), featuring cinematography from Oscar® winner Jack Hildyard (THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI) and now fully restored – including the infamous ‘Werewolf Break’ – from a brand new upgraded scan.

"Pitch Black" 4K Review (Arrow Video)
THERE'S A NEW REASON TO BE AFRAID OF THE DARK. A sci-fi/horror sleeper hit that birthed a franchise and launched the career of a new action movie icon, Pitch Black holds its own today as a nerve-shredding creature-feature in which the monsters outside finally meet their match against a monster within. When an intergalactic transport ship crashes on a remote desert planet with no sign of help on the horizon, the survivors, led by Fry (Radha Mitchell), band together to find a way back home. Among the passengers is Riddick (Vin Diesel), a convicted murderer being transported by marshal Johns (Cole Hauser) - and now freed of his chains and on the loose. But as a solar eclipse plunges the planet into total darkness, a threat even worse than Riddick reveals itself, and the last humans standing may have to form an uneasy truce with the cunning fugitive (whose eyes have been surgically altered to see in the dark) to last the long night. Boasting crackerjack direction and a whip-smart script by David Twohy, as well as a star-making performance by Diesel, Riddick's first outing is freshly unleashed in an illuminating, brand new 4K restoration, with hours of exclusive bonus content.

"We" DVD Review (Artsploitation Films)
Eight bored teenagers embark on a summer of both sexual experimentation and moral collapse.
Director Rene Eller's lurid, unflinching look at the amorality of youth is adapted from novel "Wij" by Elvis Peeters. During one hot summer, a group of eight privileged suburban teens hang out and begin to engage in pranks and innocent sex games but this soon escalates into increasingly depraved games. Their descent from innocence to ruthless predators involve arson, prostitution, pornography, assault and blackmail. Drenched in naked flesh and naked nihilism the film is reminiscent of the films of Harmony Korine, Larry Clark and Lars von Trier.

"Skinned Alive" Blu-Ray Review (Tempe Video)
Rob Zombie popularized the “hillbilly horror” subgenre with films like “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects,” but writer/ director Jon Killough did it over a decade earlier by making a movie that’s fun for the whole family… the Manson family, that is! Crawldaddy and her kids travel cross-country selling fine leather apparel when their van breaks down in the Ohio backwoods. Auto mechanic Tom and his wife Whinnie put them up for the weekend, until ex-cop neighbor Paul discovers what their product is really made of...

A Run Through '91 "Carne" Review
After the birth of his baby daughter Cynthia, a Parisian horse butcher soon finds himself abandoned, responsible to raise and care for his newborn girl, completely on his own. Moreover, as his little girl grows into an adolescent, nothing much seems to change in the butcher’s life, who day in, day out, experiences the same numbing and tedious repetition, up until Cynthia’s first signs of puberty. Under those circumstances and after a dreadful incident coupled with an ungovernable paroxysm of violence, the butcher will fall into a downward spiral that will burn to the ground whatever dignity still remained in him.

Blindspot Episode 18 "Black Sunday" Blu-Ray Review (Kino Lorber)
In one of the most auspicious directorial debuts in movie history, Mario Bava bridged the gap between the gothic horror picture and the European art film with BLACK SUNDAY (aka La maschera del demonio or The Mask of Satan). Made in 1960 and now considered a cult classic, it continues to reverberate through the cinema, inspiring and influencing new generations of filmmakers.
In an absolutely mesmerizing performance, BLACK SUNDAY stars Barbara Steele as Asa Vajda, a beautiful woman tortured and executed as a witch — but not before pronouncing a curse upon those who have condemned her, a curse that is fulfilled some 200 years later.
This newly mastered HD edition is the original Italian cut of the film, complete with Roberto Nicolosi's expressive score and three minutes of footage deleted from the U.S. Release version.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
Mastered in HD from an archival 35mm print
Audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark
