All to be released on 6/28

Bloody Birthday

Quote
Get ready for the rarely seen slasher classic from the ‘80s that may also be the most disturbing ‘killer kids’ movies in grindhouse history: Three babies are simultaneously born in the same hospital at the peak of a full solar eclipse. Ten years later, these adorable youngsters suddenly begin a kiddie killing spree of stranglings, shootings, stabbings, beatings and beyond. Can the town’s grown-ups stop these pint-sized serial killers before their blood-soaked birthday bash? K.C. Martel (E.T., Growing Pains), Joe Penny (Jake And The Fat Man), Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja), screen legends Susan Strasberg and José Ferrer, and MTV vixen Julie Brown – whose nude bedroom dance remains a landmark of celebrity skin – star in this still-controversial shocker from director Ed Hunt (The Brain, Diary Of A Sinner), now featuring an all-new HD transfer from the original vault elements.




Nightmares

Quote
From John Lamond, the infamous producer/director of Felicity, Australia After Dark and ABC Of Love And Sex comes this depraved mélange of sex, murder and psychotic mayhem. Jenny Neumann of Hell Night and Mistress Of The Apes fame stars as a frigid young theater actress traumatized by her mother’s horrific death years earlier. But when a series of brutal stabbings rocks her latest production, the drama queen prone to bloody hallucinations fears that she herself may be the killer. Are all actresses genuinely insane or is the stage set for a shocking final twist? Max Phipps (The Road Warrior) and Gary Sweet (The Chronicle Of Narnia: Voyage Of The Dawn Trader) co-star in the graphic ‘Ozploitation’ giallo also known as Stage Fright, now fully restored from the original Australian vault elements.




The Baby

Quote
An A-list director. A jaw-dropping storyline. And depraved depictions of suburban violence, 70s fashions and ‘sick love’. The result remains one of the most disturbing movies in Hollywood history: Anjanette Comer (The Loved One) stars as an idealistic L.A. County social worker who investigates the case of Mrs. Wadsworth (former ‘50s starlet Ruth Roman of Strangers On A Train fame), her two buxom daughters, and son ‘Baby’, a mentally-disabled man who sleeps in a crib, eats in a high-chair, crawls, bawls and wears diapers. But what secrets of unnatural attachment – and sexual obsession – are all of these women hiding? Marianna Hill (The Godfather Part II) and Michael Pataki (Grave Of The Vampire) co-star in this psychotic stunner from director Ted Post (Magnum Force, Beneath The Planet Of The Apes), now fully restored from the original film negative for the first time ever.

Mr. Skin and Panik House Entertainment Present the Unholy Trinity of “Women in Prison” Films! CHAINED HEAT, widely regarded as the greatest “women-in-prison” film of all time, finally comes to DVD in a totally uncut, re-mastered version. This triple-pack of “boobs behind bars” mid-80s exploitation classics will only be in print for a limited time.  CHAINED HEAT – Linda Blair (The Exorcist) stars as Carol Henderson, a woman sentenced to 18 months in federal prison after accidentally killing a man.  With the perverted warden (John Vernon, Animal House) seducing the inmates and two rival gangs fighting a race war, Carol struggles to survive her remaining days in the sleazy slammer.  Also stars cult film favorites Sybil Danning, Tamara Dobson and Stella Stevens. Newly re-mastered in anamorphic widescreen and presented totally uncut for the first time in North America!

RED HEAT – Linda Blair heads back to prison as American tourist Christine Carlson, a woman wrongly sentenced to three years in a brutal East German penitentiary after being forced to admit to false charges of espionage.  Tormented by the evil prisoner Sofia (Sylvia Kristel, Emmanuelle), Christine must fight for her life as her fiancée tries to rescue her from the sadistic hell behind bars.  Presented in Anamorphic Widescreen.

JUNGLE WARRIORS – A group of gorgeous models flies to a South American country to scout locations for a photo session.  When their plane is shot down, the models are imprisoned and subjected to horrible torture and rape by an evil drug lord.  In an effort to escape, the girls grab some firepower, take revenge, and try to shoot their way to freedom! Stars Sybil Danning and John Vernon.  Presented in Anamorphic Widescreen.

Features

    * Introductions for each film by the Legendary Mr. Skin!
    * Video Interviews with Actresses Stella Stevens (CHAINED HEAT) and Sybil Danning (CHAINED HEAT, JUNGLE WARRIORS)
    * Theatrical Trailers

Deathstalker 1 & 2 and Barbarian Queen!  I've been wanting to see those forever but the old DVD's are pretty expensive.

Just pre-ordered that collection from Amazon  TeddyR

I've been hoping for a "Damnation Alley" DVD for a long time as well.  Man-eating cockroaches!  Plus the Landmasters are just awesome.  Most of the problems you would encounter after the apocalypse would be much less fearsome if you have a Landmaster.

There are some other good finds in there.  "Humongous" is one I remember from when I was a teenager and would watch every bad movie at the rental store where mom took a job.  The sword and sorcery pack is full of great stuff.  Everybody should see those, though "Deathstalker 2" pains me.  I just watched "Barbarian Queen" the other day.  Seeing Lana Clarkson defeat a man with only her kegel muscles...what a woman.

Available on JULY 5, 2011 from Shout! Factory... and you can order the dvd here!

Run for your lives…again! It’s Trailers from Hell Volume 2! Trailers — you know, those fast-paced, two-to-four-minute theatrical promotional shorts that are jam-packed with swirling letters and screaming hyperbolic promises of: THRILLS! ACTION! MYSTERY! ROMANCE? On July 5, 2011, Shout! Factory will release Trailers from Hell Volume 2 on DVD, the second installment of the popular series.

Trailers from Hell Volume 2 showcases 20 more of the kind of rare vintage trailers popularized on the well-trafficked, award-winning website, www.trailersfromhell.com, but these are all brand new and exclusive to this DVD.

Concentrating on a wild mix of horror, science fiction, action, comedy and fantasy films, viewers can watch the trailers both in their original versions or accompanied by amusing and informative commentaries from esteemed genre gurus such as Directors Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins), Mick Garris (The Stand), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth) and more. A must-have for genre fans, DVD collectors and trailer aficionados, Trailers From Hell Volume 2 is priced for everyone to own at $19.93.

As if that weren’t enough, the DVD also includes Roger Corman’s classic comedy from 1960, The Little Shop of Horrors featuring Jack Nicholson in one of his first roles. For the first time ever, the film has an all-new anamorphic widescreen transfer, making Audrey Jr. the hungry man-eating houseplant even more formidable than ever!

**Of Special Note: The first fans who pre-order Volume 2 from Shout! Factory’s online store will receive a limited edition of The Best of Trailers from Hell Volume 1 on DVD with their purchase. This is an exclusive offer and the supply is extremely limited. **

Something Weird Video Goes HD!

TBR:9/27/11

Quote
Image Entertainment has both BASKET CASE and THE BLOOD TRILOGY, consisting of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BLOOD FEAST, TWO THOUSAND MANIACS! and THE GORE GORE GIRLS, coming on the hi-def format September 27. The latter ties in with Image’s DVD release the same day of Henenlotter’s documentary HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS: THE GODFATHER OF GORE. The impetus to get his debut feature about Duane Bradley and his monstrous basket-dwelling brother Belial onto Blu-ray was Henenlotter’s discovery of the original negatives a couple of years back. “I’ve had the negative the whole time, but it was mislabeled, so I didn’t know I had it,” he tells us. It really has been lost all these years; otherwise, I would have gone with it on the first DVD!





Quote
• New video introduction by Henenlotter

• Audio commentary by Henenlotter, producer Edgar Ievins and actress Beverly Bonner

• Rare outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage

• 2001 IN SEARCH OF THE HOTEL BROSLIN video short

• Gallery of BASKET CASE exploitation art and behind-the-scenes photos

• Two theatrical trailers, plus TV spot

• Two rare BASKET CASE radio spots

Retail price is $17.97, as it is for the BLOOD TRILOGY Blu-ray, for which Henenlotter also oversaw the hi-def remastering of the Lewis trio, with DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks. The extras here will be:

• Audio commentary on each movie by Lewis and producer David F. Friedman

• Outtakes

• CARVING MAGIC with William Kerwin and Harvey Korman

• Theatrical trailers for each movie

• Galleries of exploitation art

On the Godzilla side of things it would seem two movies are finally getting released over here. Godzilla vs. Megalon and Destroy All Monsters!

http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2011/06/07/its-official-media-blasters-licenses-destroy-all-monsters-and-godzilla-vs-megalon-for-dvd-and-blu-ray/

Now Destroy All Monsters is loads of fun and I know Megalon tends to be one of the most hated of all the films. Still, I have a guilty pleasure of that one and I am a completest.

And think kind of renews my hopes that someday 1985 and Biollante will get DVD releases in the U.S.

MST3K: MANOS - SPECIAL EDITION



* Disc one will feature the classic MST3K episode, a featurette–”Group Therapy: Wherein Joel, Trace, Frank & Mary Jo relive the horror”–and the MST3K Hour wraps.
* Disc two will feature the original unMSTed movie, “Jam Handy To the Rescue!” A Daniel Griffith/Ballyhoo Production featurette (written by and starring Larry Blamire), BOTH parts of the short “Hired!” “My (Educational) Short Life,” an Interview with Joel Hodgson and–wait for it–“Hotel Torgo”.

http://www.mst3kinfo.com/?p=9933

I will probably end up buying this for the special features, but it's not going to be a high priority.
