The month of May’s home entertainment releases kick off in high gear with several fantastic classic genre titles making their way to high-def this week. Scream Factory is debuting a brand new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray for Mad Max and both Ladyhawke and Steven Spielberg’s Duel are both getting an upgraded release too. The recent horror flick, The Pyramid, is also making its way onto DVD and Blu, and Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River arrives on Tuesday as well.
In previous films, he’s played characters who’ve elicited laughs from viewers, but soon Will Poulter will likely be sharing his own laugh onscreen as Pennywise the clown in the upcoming two-film adaptation of Stephen King’s IT from Warner Bros.’ New Line Cinema.
If you caught my Tweet from last night, you already know that I really enjoyed We Are Still Here and you’ll be able to see it for yourself very soon. Following its screenings at the Stanley Film Festival, Dark Sky Films has announced that the movie will be getting a theatrical and VOD release in June.
Following its recent premiere at the Stanley Film Festival, Adam Egypt Mortimer’s Some Kind of Hate has been acquired by Image Entertainment:
Scream Factory is adding sinister spirits and wicked witchcraft to their Summer of Fear Part 2 lineup with the upcoming release of Ghosthouse and Witchery on Blu-ray. The double feature debuts June 30th, and we have details and cover art for the high-definition upgrades of the late ’80s horror films.
One of the zombie apocalypse’s most durable survivors, an elite galactic hunter, a well-meaning Mogwai, a ghost with a sense of humor, two vastly different characters from Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas, and more are included in Hallmark’s recently unveiled lineup of 2015 holiday ornaments:
“Fresh Hell” is hitting the small screen tonight via Showtime. The Penny Dreadful Season 2 premiere airs at 10:00pm EST, and ahead of the episode’s television debut, we’ve been provided with ten hardcover copies of The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful coffee table book, as well as two full sets of individual character posters, to give away to lucky Daily Dead readers.
The eclectic members of Task Force X have come together for a photo. Just over one week after David Ayer revealed the first official full look at Jared Leto’s Joker from the upcoming Suicide Squad film, the writer/director has now unleashed the first look at the other key players that make up the Task Force X team.
Though he’s perhaps best known for writing The Scarlet Letter, author Nathaniel Hawthorne also left his mark on the macabre, penning tales that can still be told to chilling effect around the campfire. Three of these stories made it onscreen in Sidney Salkow’s 1963 anthology horror film, Twice-Told Tales. Not long after announcing they are bringing Burnt Offerings to Blu-ray and DVD this October, Kino Lorber has revealed they have another Halloween goodie up their sleeve, as they will also release Twice-Told Tales on Blu-ray and DVD before the flickering flames of jack-o’-lanterns cast shadows across your doorstep.
“Whenever you get scared, you close your eyes and you count to ten, and then when you’re done counting, you open your eyes and whatever was scaring you… will be gone.” A boy fears what could be waiting in the shadows of his closet in the short horror film, Count to Ten. From Lone Suspect Productions, Count to Ten was recently released on BlackBoxTV and we now have the scary short for Daily Dead readers to enjoy.
