Paramount is releasing the stellar 10 Cloverfield Lane on both Blu-ray and DVD on June 14th, and for those Jim Wynorski fans out there, Synapse Films is bringing his cult film Sorceress to Blu-ray this week as well.

Other notable releases for Tuesday include the Blu-ray / DVD release of the Rabid Dogs remake and the Collector’s Edition Blu-rays of both Jeepers Creepers films from Scream Factory, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on 4K Ultra HD, the 50th Anniversary Collection of Dark Shadows on DVD, and the Blu-ray release of The Magnetic Monster from Kino Lorber.

10 Cloverfield Lane (Paramount Studios, Blu/DVD/Digital HD & DVD)

After a catastrophic car crash, a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) wakes up in a survivalist’s (John Goodman, Argo) underground bunker. He claims to have saved her from an apocalyptic attack that has left the outside world uninhabitable. His theories are supported by a mysterious stranger who is in the bunker with them (John Gallagher, Jr., “The Newsroom”), but as his increasingly suspicious actions lead her to question his motives, she’ll have to escape in order to discover the truth.

With a shocking finale that “will completely blow you away” (Eric Eisenberg, Cinemablend), 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE looks phenomenal on Blu-ray. The Combo Pack includes Digital HD, commentary with director Dan Trachtenberg and producer J.J. Abrams, and over 30 minutes of special features. Take an extensive look behind-the-scenes with Abrams and the cast as they revisit the legacy of 2008’s CLOVERFIELD, and discuss how 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE went from script to production. Continue with a tour of the ominous bunker, see how the costume designer was challenged to create a homemade Hazmat suit, follow the production team and sound designers as they work on the movie’s epic finale, and hear the unique scores composed for each character. Plus, for a limited time only, get a bonus Digital HD copy of the original CLOVERFIELD with the Blu-ray Combo Pack.

The opening ceremonies include many important guests…and one uninvited baby shark who accidentally enters the park's lagoon through a faulty sea gate and subsequently dies. The young shark's 35-foot mother soon follows her offspring, creating the most horrifying tale of terror ever filmed in the water. Directed by Joe Alves, the original Jaws designer, and co-written by Carl Gottlieb who penned the first two blockbusters, this action-packed adventure will have you screaming for your life.
