This week’s batch of home media releases are an eclectic bunch of titles, where there’s definitely a little bit of something for everyone headed to Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow. As far as new films go, the award-winning Promising Young Woman is being released on both formats, and RLJE Films is keeping busy this Tuesday with their releases for both PG: Psycho Goreman and last year’s Castle Freak reimagining. Mill Creek Entertainment is putting out a killer Steelbook edition of Rad, and for those who are looking to check out some classic genre fare, Arrow has put together a special edition double feature release of The Invisible Man Appears and The Invisible Man vs. The Human Fly, which has never been available outside of Japan until now. 

Other releases for March 16th include Tower of Evil, I Am Lisa, Konga TNT, The Stay, The Parish, Sacrilege, and Todd.

Castle Freak (2020) (RLJE Films, Blu-ray & DVD)

After she’s permanently blinded in a tragic car accident, Rebecca receives some bizarre news: her long-lost-mother has recently passed away, leaving her their family’s ancestral castle. Traveling to the estate with a group of friends, Rebecca hopes it will be an opportunity for her to reconnect with a past she never knew—and a mother who seemingly left her behind. When strange and unexplained things start happening and her friends begin to die, Rebecca must unravel her family’s mysterious history before she too falls prey to the Castle Freak.

The Invisible Man Appears/The Invisible Man vs. The Human Fly: Special Edition (Arrow Video, Blu-ray)

Finally released outside Japan for the very first time, these unique riffs on H.G. Wells classic character (though undoubtedly also indebted to Universal s iconic film series) are two of the earliest examples of tokusatsu (special effects) cinema from Daiei Studios, later the home of Gamera.

In The Invisible Man Appears, written and directed by Nobuo Adachi in 1949, a scientist successfully creates an invisibility serum, only to be kidnapped by a gang of thugs who wish to use the formula to rob a priceless jewel. In addition to being the earliest surviving Japanese science fiction film ever made, the film's entertaining special effects were an early credit for the legendary Eiji Tsuburaya, five years before he first brought Godzilla to life.

Eight years later, Mitsuo Murayama s exciting The Invisible Man vs. The Human Fly tells the story of a series of mysterious murders where the only clue is strange buzzing noise at the scene of the crime could this be linked to secret wartime experiments in shrinking humans to the size of insects? And can a scientist who’s just invented an invisibility ray be the one to stop it?
