Horror and sci-fi home entertainment titles are really picking up this week, as we have almost 20 different Blu-rays and DVDs coming home this Tuesday. Universal is keeping themselves busy with several notable releases including Death Race 2050, Ouija: Origin of Evil, 12 Monkeys: Season Two, and a Ouija double feature.
Collectors better be ready to celebrate the rules of Halloween early this year, because this summer Mezco Toyz will release a stylized figure based on Sam from Michael Dougherty's cult classic Trick ’r Treat, and we have photos of the cute and creepy collectible.
Heat up a bowl of popcorn, fluff up some pillows, and grab a comfy seat for clips and trailers from Scream Factory's double feature Blu-ray of the Slumber Party sequels, drilling into shelves on January 17th.
[Happy Monday, readers! With the 2017 Sundance Film Festival beginning later this week, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the great midnight movies that have come out of the fest over the years. Be sure to check back each day this week for more Midnight Memories from Daily Dead!]
The Sundance Film Festival has hosted the premieres of many a great genre offering; from Lucky McKee’s May in 2002 to Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead in 2014, the festival spotlights genre work by turns impactful, thoughtful, or just delightful. And many of the films’ backstories are often as inspired as the work itself. Case in point: Jason Eisener’s Hobo with a Shotgun, which premiered January 21st, 2011 at Sundance, and is still as fun to watch as its journey to the screen is fascinating.
Starting later this week, Daily Dead will be providing live coverage of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and right now we have a look at a new poster and stills from Bad Day for the Cut, a revenge thriller set in the Irish countryside that is one of many films we'll be covering at the fest.
When people accuse David Cronenberg’s work of being “cold” or “clinical,” I suspect the movie they’re really talking about is his 1988 psychological thriller, Dead Ringers. It is a movie about surgeons, so of course it’s clinical. It is photographed with special cameras and carefully choreographed movements that require precision. It is a film about two men who share an unspoken bond and who keep all of their emotions under wraps. Of course it feels cold. But it is also a movie in which a woman tears into the flesh connecting conjoined twins with her teeth. There’s no mistaking it for anything but a David Cronenberg movie.
Screeching around the corner, mowing down everyone in its path, and spitting gravel and bone matter in its wake, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 roars onto Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on January 17th courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. To celebrate the next chapter in Corman's iconic road rage series, we've been provided with five Blu-ray / DVD combo pack copies to give away to Daily Dead readers, including one DVD copy of Death Race 2000 for one lucky grand prize winner.
Likely in search of the truth as well as a "damn fine" cup of coffee, Kyle MacLachlan's return as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper is teased in a new promo video for Showtime's Twin Peaks limited event series ahead of its premiere this May.
It’s where some people keep their keys, money, or a good book, but the nightstand drawer in director Stacy Title’s The Bye Bye Man holds something far more sinister than spare change. When spoken aloud, what’s carved into its wooden surface has the ability to scare your soul and scar your psyche, so it’s a shame that the film featuring this frightening piece of furniture—and the entity it unleashes—doesn’t live up to its promising potential.
The self-proclaimed "Best Small Town in America" is celebrating another year at the top, but with Sammy and Ben not allowed to partake in the festivities, the latest broadcast of King Falls AM features call-ins from around the community.
