The month of May’s home entertainment releases are ending on a strong note, especially if you’re a purveyor of cult cinema. This week boasts an incredible selection of classic films resurrected on high definition including Blood Bath, Venom, The Terror, Psychic Killer and a 12-movie collection from Film Chest.
Sony Home Entertainment is releasing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies on various formats on May 31st and, for those of you who may have missed it in theaters, Alex Proyas’ Gods of Egypt is also coming home this Tuesday as well.
If you enjoyed the first season of MTV’s Scream: The TV Series, you should undoubtedly enjoy what the show has to offer in the Season 2 premiere, as not only do we get another murder mystery to dig deep into, but we also get a few new major storylines, more flushed-out characters, and a viciously blunt killing to kick things off in grand, gory style.
“Does this creature have a name?” Ten photos and three preview videos from Showtime have been released, teasing next Sunday’s all-new installment of Penny Dreadful Season 3, titled, “No Beast So Fierce”, in which the beasts will come out to play.
Fans anticipating the next installment in the Yautja franchise now have a little less time to wait, as 20th Century Fox has bumped up the release of The Predator by nearly one month.
The radio is a key form of communication in a world succumbing to the living dead infection, and if you can’t wait until August 21st for the return of Fear The Walking Dead, AMC has released several radio transmissions to help hold you over, including one that mentions Jack (Daniel Zovatto).
Created by CoolProps, the life-size heads of both the Brown and Blue Alien Warrior as well as the newborn Alien from Alien: Resurrection are now available to pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles. Also: Funko and PREVIEWS’ San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Swamp Thing Pop! vinyl figure, a new poster and teaser for the short film Lion, and, lastly, a trailer and theatrical / VOD rollout details for Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made.
Every time a hospitalized man wakes up, he’s lost another limb. Meanwhile, London police are on the hunt for a serial killer who drains the blood from his victims before dispatching their bodies. Also meanwhile (again), a Nazi-ish regime is being thwarted from an insider in an Eastern European country. Again meanwhile (and also again), I’m thoroughly confused. And you will be too! Welcome to Scream and Scream Again (1970), a joint Amicus/AIP production that’s as delightful as it is confounding.
Stop me if you’ve heard this idea for a movie: Dean Martin gets miniaturized and injected into the body of Jerry Lewis.
That’s the pitch for Joe Dante’s 1987 film Innerspace, his last collaboration with producer Steven Spielberg until making Small Soldiers for DreamWorks in 1998. Made between his contributions to the outrageous 1986 anthology comedy Amazon Women on the Moon and his darkly comic 1989 movie The ’Burbs, Innerspace could be considered Joe Dante’s most commercial film.
The last two episodes of Fear The Walking Dead took viewers to the Abigail compound, a place run by Celia Flores, a woman who sees the apocalypse as a promising new phase of life. With Fear The Walking Dead now on break until August, Daily Dead had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Marlene Forte, the actress who plays Celia, about her actions in the Mid-Season 2 finale, her character’s understanding of Nick and compassion for Daniel, and the potential question mark surrounding Celia’s future. *Spoiler Warning*
[Guest authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner of Really Awful Movies share their diagnosis of healthcare horror movies with Daily Dead readers.] When the US was overhauling its healthcare system, much to-do was made about so-called “death panels,” government committees who would decide who lives and dies based on asset allocation. As far as healthcare horrors are concerned, it turns out that playing God is very real, but luckily only in film and Sarah Palin’s fright-filled imagination. Nefarious nurses, murderous docs, and psychopathic hallway stalkers in horror movies have effectively put end-of-life issues at the forefront, but not in a way that can be reasonably debated: your life, their ending of it.
We’ve decided to weigh in on the healthcare hullabaloo by looking at fictional settings that make One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest look like the height of patient-centered thinking. So sit back and self-medicate with whatever’s in the fridge (or better still, the medicine cabinet) and take these seven healthcare horrors—but don’t call us in the morning.
