Tuesday, April 25th boasts an array of diverse Blu-ray and DVD offerings with a great assortment titles both new and old. Lionsgate is releasing one of the best zombie films I’ve seen as of late, The Girl With All the Gifts, on both formats, and the most recent sequel in the Underworld franchise, Blood Wars, arrives this week on 4K Blu-ray, as well as the typical Blu and DVD discs, too.
Eggsy and a few other familiar faces return for another round of eye-popping action in the first full-length trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
You may know him as Winston Zeddmore, Sergeant Albrecht, or even Justin Jones, but right now Ernie Hudson is using his versatile talents in front of the camera to bring the character of Captain Ned Conrad to life on the FOX series APB. To celebrate the season 1 finale of the high-tech yet emotionally grounded police series, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Hudson about his new show, and we also had the chance to talk about his desire to play Winston once again in the world of Ghostbusters, why he doesn't plan on returning to The Crow franchise, and his secretive time on the Twin Peaks revival.
Psychopaths, the latest film from writer/director Mickey Keating, recently enjoyed its world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. Daily Dead had the chance to speak with Keating and Psychopaths co-stars Ashley Bell and Larry Fessenden, and the trio discussed reteaming for their latest collaboration (both Bell and Fessenden were in Keating’s previous genre effort, Carnage Park) and what fans can expect from Keating’s latest slice of horror-fueled fun.

Taissa Farmiga's sister Vera plays paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring films, so it's rather fitting that Taissa is now set to play a lead role in The Conjuring 2 spinoff film, The Nun.
In a world as dangerous as the one in AMC's The Walking Dead, enough characters have died to the point where they could form an entire cast for another show. To pay tribute to the fallen, Funko is releasing "In Memoriam" Mystery Minis of deceased characters from the series, and after their initial reveal at the London Toy Fair earlier this year, Funko has now unveiled a new look at the collectibles and revealed their release month.
If you have fond memories of Madballs, then Fright Rags is likely going to hit a nostalgic chord with their new Madballs shirts and socks that feature designs based on the gruesomely fun bouncy ball line.
He's induced laughter and chills in previous projects like ThanksKilling, Critters: Bounty Hunter, and Red Weather, but in his latest short film, director Jordan Downey channels the nostalgia of Stranger Things and combines it with the coming-of-age poignancy of early Stephen King stories in Techno Western, which you can watch right now on Daily Dead.
The wait is nearly over, as this week marks the beginning of the first-ever Overlook Film Festival.

I was a teenager when ABC’s The Disney Sunday Movie aired Mr. Boogedy (1986), a haunted house tale, and I had no interest in seeing it. I was beyond such childish ventures; my horror was blood and guts and sex and probably more blood. But teenaged Scott didn’t bother to think that every horror fan starts somewhere, and at every age too – and some gateway horror is geared towards nudging the kid to the edge of the pool instead of throwing him in. If you’re looking for some fun horror water wings, Mr. Boogedy will do the trick.
Post-apocalyptic films were a dime a dozen in the early ‘80s. They were almost always done on the cheap – a small cast of a few survivors, a barren desert and some rags for wardrobe, and voila! Throw it on HBO for a few years and call it a day. But sometimes ambition seeps in, and Night of the Comet (1984) is one of the best examples of low budget ingenuity, smart, sharply drawn characters, and a whole lot of heart. When the aliens return to take back the earth (do you want to claim responsibility for this freak show?) and wish to be shown a film indicative of the ‘80s, show them this – it represents all the best qualities of the decade’s filmmaking.
