Ghost-Town-620-01

While July 28th may be a light day in terms of the amount of horror and sci-fi titles making their home entertainment debuts, we do have an interesting assortment of films and TV to look forward to. Kino Lorber has dug up two classics—The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein and Cherry 2000 (starring Melanie Griffith)—which are being released on Blu-ray this Tuesday, and Scream Factory has another underrated genre gem getting the HD treatment as well—the horror western Ghost Town.

The-Car

In the wake of the massive hit that was Jaws (1975), studios were foaming at the mouth to replicate its success. Of course, their idea was to take everything that they thought made Jaws a winner and put it in a different setting. Here’s a few that were cranked out by the dream machine: Jaws on Land (Grizzly), Micro-Jaws (Piranha), Jaws, Back to the Water (Orca), Jaws, Back to the Water Again, with Feeling (Jaws II) , and our flick du jour, the little engine that could, Jaws on Wheels – The Car (1977) .

Dark-Was-Night-620

Something goes bump in the shadows of the small-town setting of Dark Was the Night, the new horror film from Jack Heller (Enter Nowhere) that stars Kevin Durand and Lukas Haas. With Dark Was the Night now in theaters and on VOD from Image Entertainment, we caught up via Q&A with director Heller, who discussed blending creature-centric scares with psychological tension and much more.

Sinister-2-620-01
Last August, I was invited to the set of Sinister 2, where it was instantly apparent that Bughuul was leaving his mark on a new family. While the snuff film-obsessed Bughuul was nowhere to be found, we were greeted by quite a few child actors who were playing his little killers in the new movie. Read More

Vatican-Tapes-Michael-Pena-620-02

Michael Peña's played a wide range of roles in his career, always providing viewers with fully believable characters who enhance the stories they inhabit. His latest onscreen roles—Father Lozano in The Vatican Tapes and Luis in Ant-Man—are no exceptions, and Daily Dead recently had the chance to talk with Michael Peña about playing an exorcism-tasked priest, working with Paul Rudd in the new Marvel movie, and more.

Contest-Scream-620-a

Having issued definitive collector’s editions of a number of high-profile horror classics of the ’80s and ’90s, Scream Factory often turns to smaller and more obscure titles to remind fans of some of the gems that once lined video store shelves. Lately they’ve been killing it with HD releases of Charles Band’s old Empire Pictures titles, several of which are appearing on home video for the first time since VHS (like their recent release of Ghost Town, for example). While both Cellar Dweller and Catacombs got a DVD release in 2013 as part of an “All Night Horror Marathon” four-film collection (the DVD debut of both movies), this new double feature Blu-ray is the first time either can be seen in high-def.

What-We-Do-Jemain

Bloody, funny, and made for lovers of classic vampires by fans of the genre, What We Do in the Shadows is already one of my favorite horror comedies. With the movie coming out on Blu-ray and DVD on July 21st, I had a chance to catch up with Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), who co-wrote, co-directed, and starred in the vampire mockumentary.  Read More
