Coming at us from indie madman Ron Bonk – nowhere is safe when there is a House Shark on the prowl. As the release draws ever nearer – we have not gotten a redone trailer and some pretty nifty artwork to help seal the deal.
First up – a synopsis to wet the palate.
“You’re gonna need a bigger house! When Frank (Trey Harrison) finds his happy home under attack by a dangerous but largely unknown breed of shark, he’s enlists the aid of the world’s only “House Shark” Expert, Zachary (Michael Merchant), and a grizzled former real estate agent, Abraham (Wes Reid), to embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast and claim back his life. It’s JAWS in a house! From writer/director Ron Bonk (“She Kills”, “Clay”).”

What’s Victor Crowley all about you ask – got ya covered – check out the synopsis:
“Set ten years after the massacre featured in the series’ first three movies, lone survivor Andrew Yong has spent over a decade claiming that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the deaths of the forty-nine people killed in the original trilogy of films. Yong’s allegations have been met with widespread disbelief, but when a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Yong must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past.”

One of my favorite films in recent memory has been Behind The Mask – The Rise Of Leslie Vernon – to this day this film has yet to get the respect it is due and I’m thrilled to be able to report that Scream Factory is all set to give this film the love it deserves.
The fan favorite label announced today that come next year they weill be giving Behind The Mask their royal “Collector’s Edtion” treatment and that my friends is nothing but good!
Here’s the announcement they made via social media:
“We’ve always made a point in the past to announce a future special upcoming title on this date and we’re doing the same today. This year’s exciting reveal is that the 2006 horror/satire cult favorite BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON will be joining the Scream Factory family soon!
Look for this all-new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release in March of next year. More details to be announced end of Nov / early Dec.”
Soon as we get the official press release – the info will be yours to behold.
Oh that Scream Factory – nary a week goes by that we don’t get news of some kind of release that you know is going to end up in your collection. This time the Factory shines their light on George Romero with the announcement that Land of the Dead will be making an appearence in their much loved Collector’s Edition Blu-ray collection.
As we have become acustomed – Facebook is where the info gets debuted – here’s what they posted:
“We’ll thrilled to add another George A Romero film to our sinister roster this year in the form of LAND OF THE DEAD!
Project is still in progress but here’s what we can tell you so far:

If you are so inclined – you can pre-order this baby now and if you do you’ll be rewarded with a rolled copy of that kick ass artwork you’re looking at right now. Go get it horror fans!
This film has earn a rather legendary place in the annals or horror history for no other reason then the fact that it has never gotten a proper DVD or Blu-ray release. I’m talking about The Poughkeepsie Tapes – the film has been in a completed state for a decade yet never seen the light of day. It was originally slated to be an MGM theatrical release but got pulled by the powers that be. It did see the light of day briefly in 2014 when DirecTV gave it a whirl but it has never seen a theater or home video release – until now.
Enter Scream Factory – who will be giving the film it just due on Oct. 10th with a Blu-ray / DVD Combo release.
Here’s what they posted via their Facebook page:
“From the filmmakers that brought you Quarantine and As Above, So Below comes a descent into the twisted crimes of a serial killer!
Throughout the 1990s, a serial killer terrorized upstate New York. After a decade-long crime spree conducted largely under the radar of law enforcement, the killer left behind the most disturbing collection of evidence homicide detectives had even seen – hundreds of homemade videotapes that chronicled the stalking, abduction, murder and disposal of his victims.
The Poughkeepsie Tapes examines these horrific tapes at length: what they reveal about the killer, why they were made and how FBI profilers have used them to better understand violent, psychopathic behavior. The Poughkeepsie Tapes combines interviews surrounding the devastating impact of the “Water Street Butcher,” with shocking footage from the tapes themselves.”
The also unleashed the artwork. Excited to finally be able to have a look at this one. Oct. 10th – remember the date!
