Beyond the Door: 2-Disc Special Edition (Arrow Video, Blu-ray)

Legendary filmmaker Ovidio G. Assonitis, whose Tentacles and Piranha II sought to cash in on the killer fish craze spawned by Jaws, first hit pay dirt in 1974 with Beyond the Door - a gloriously bonkers riff on The Exorcist featuring Emmy Award-winning actress Juliet Mills and distinguished British actor Richard Johnson. 

Set against the backdrop of San Francisco, Beyond the Door stars Mills as Jessica Barrett, a young mother who starts to develop strange behaviors whilst pregnant with her third child. Before you can say split pea soup , Jessica is displaying signs of full-blown demonic possession - complete with projectile vomiting and fully-rotating head! Could it be that she’s carrying the child of the Antichrist himself? 

Described as disgusting , scary trash and maddeningly inappropriate by film critic Robert Ebert and subject to a lawsuit by Warner Bros. (who claimed copyright infringement against a certain William Friedkin film), the devilish denizens at Arrow Video have summoned up this wickedly entertaining popcorn spiller in a brand new, extras-packed edition fit for Satan himself!

Camp Cold Brook (Scream Factory, Blu-ray & DVD)

TV producer Jack Wilson (Chad Michael Murray) fears his paranormal reality show will be cancelled. Desperate to increase the ratings, Wilson takes his filming crew out to investigate the legendary Camp Cold Brook--an abandoned summer camp where a mass murder had taken place decades ago. They soon realize they are not alone…

Knives and Skin (Scream Factory/IFC Midnight, Blu/DVD Combo)

Knives and Skin follows the investigation of a young girl's disappearance in a stylized version of a rural Midwest town that hovers just above reality, led by an inexperienced local sheriff. Unusual coping techniques develop among the traumatized small-town residents with each new secret revealed. The ripple of fear and suspicion destroys some relationships and strengthens others. The backdrop of trauma colors quintessential rituals—classrooms, dances, courtship, football games—in which the teenagers experience an accelerated loss of innocence while their parents are forced to confront adulthood failures.

Supernatural (1933) (KL Studio Classics, Blu-ray)

Brand New 2K Master! In a departure from her usual comedy roles, screen legend Carole Lombard (Nothing Sacred, Hands Across the Table) co-stars with western icon Randolph Scott (Western Union, Ride the High Country) in this chilling tale of a woman possessed by a murderer’s dark soul. Roma (Lombard), whose twin brother has recently been murdered, becomes easy prey for a corrupt medium who arranges a séance to conjure up the lost twin’s supposedly troubled soul. Meanwhile, a murderess accused of strangling her lover awaits her fate in the electric chair. Before she dies, she agrees to donate her body to a scientist for his unique life-after-death research. Eerily, the doctor’s first experiment on the now-dead woman occurs at precisely the same time as the séance. In an evil twist of fate, Roma becomes possessed by the murderess’ wicked spirit. In a race against time, the doctor and Roma’s fiancé (Scott) struggle to undo the horrible curse in this compelling, inventive and influential ghost story directed by Victor Halperin (White Zombie).

Terror Train (Scorpion Releasing, Blu-ray)

Take an excursion into terror with Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, Love Letters, The Fog) in this classic shocker from director Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies, Under Fire, Shoot to Kill). It’s New Year’s Eve, and a group of college coeds have planned a masquerade bash aboard a chartered train. What they didn’t plan on was that a knife-wielding psycho would crash the party and begin slaughtering the guests one by one. Who is this brutal costumed killer? Could it be the mysterious magician (David Copperfield) with a talent for swordplay... a former frat pledge with an axe to grind... or any number of other guests, both invited and uninvited? Also starring Academy Award Winner Ben Johnson (The Last Picture Show, The Hunter, The Getaway, Dillinger, The Town That Dreaded Sundown), Hart Bochner (Die Hard, Apartment Zero), Sandee Currie (Gas, Street Justice) and D.D. Winters (aka Vanity, Action Jackson, 52 Pick-Up). Now enjoy the slasher classic in a brand new 2K scan of the original internegative.
