Penny Dreadful: The Complete Series [Blu-Ray]

All three seasons on Blu-Ray.

The Twilight Zone: The Complete ’80s Series

“Travel into the fifth dimension once again with THE TWILIGHT ZONE, testing the limits of reality and exploring the mysteries of the universe. Airing from 1985 to 1989, this critically acclaimed anthology series carried on the legacy of the original Rod Serling program and attracted a brand new audience of fans. The series features major stars including Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Martin Landau and many more! In compelling tales of intrigue by such noted writers as Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Arthur C. Clarke and Theodore Sturgeon. This collection contains all 3 seasons (65 episodes) from the classic ’80s TV series.

PLEASE NOTE: Season 1 not closed captioned and not subtitled.”

Antibirth [Scream Factory Blu-Ray]

“Hard-drinking, pill-popping, bong-ripping Lou (Natasha Lyonne, Orange In The New Black) and her best friend Sadie (Chloe Sevigny, #Horror, Love & Friendship) spend their days adrift in a druggy haze. But one wild night out becomes a bad trip that never ends when Lou wakes up with symptoms of an unexplained, highly abnormal pregnancy. Who (or what) is growing inside her? As her due date approaches with alarming swiftness, the fear, paranoia, and conspiracy theories begin to pile up. Spiked with blasts of hallucinatory color, surreal shocks, and subversive comedy, the audacious feature debut from Danny Perez is a no-holds-barred descent into delirium. This “Weird, messy and oddly fascinating”, (Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International) film also stars Meg Tilly (Psycho II) and Mark Webber (Green Room).”

Wild Beasts [Severin Films Blu-Ray]

“For his final work, Godfather Of Mondo Franco E. Prosperi took on the Nature Strikes Back genre and delivered perhaps the most shocking movie of his controversial career: When PCP gets into the water supply of a city zoo, the drug-crazed beasts including tigers, lions, cheetahs, hyenas and elephants, as well as seeing eye dogs and sewer rats go berserk and rampage through the streets of Rome. What follows is a terrifying mix of actual animal attacks (supervised by professional circus trainers) and over-the-top 80s Italian gore that remains the greatest eco-revenge shocker in EuroCult history. Lorraine De Selle (CANNIBAL FEROX, HOUSE AT THE EDGE OF THE PARK) and Ugo Bologna (NIGHTMARE CITY) star in this disturbing urban bloodbath, now digitally remastered for the first time ever and bursting with all-new Special Features!

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series: Season Three [Blu-Ray]

“Season three of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” continues the Gecko brothers’ saga as they fight their way through the chilling world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. Once the baddest outlaws in the land, Seth and Richie made a run for the Border two years ago to save their lives – and their fortune. After stumbling into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, the Geckos encountered the vampire goddess Santánico, joining her cause to settle an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now that world is on the verge of violent and destructive explosion as new enemies hell-bent on domination gather to take them down. In typical Gecko fashion, Seth and Richie assemble an unlikely crew (some new, some old) to take on the forces of hell.”

King Kong [Blu-Ray]

“Captured on blu-ray at last comes “the greatest of all horror films” with “masterly special effects” (Danny Peary, Guide for the Film Fanatic). Memorable moments abound: a moviemaking expedition on a fantastic isle filled with dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures; the giant simian’s lovestruck obsession with the film shoot’s blonde starlet (scream queen Fay Wray); Kong’s capture; his Manhattan rampage; and the fateful finale atop the Empire State Building, where Kong cradles his palm-sized beloved and swats at machine-gunning airplanes. “It was beauty killed the beast.” But in these and other great scenes, King Kong lives forever.”

Moontrap: Target Earth

“A young woman discovers the remains of an ancient human civilization and a spacecraft that takes her to the Moon to confront a dangerous mystery, guarded by a race of robotic creatures that now threaten the Earth.”

Dr. Orloff’s Monster [Redemption Blu-Ray]

“The follow-up to Jess Franco’s career-launching film The Awful Dr. Orloff, Dr. Orloff’s Monster is a modern gothic thriller, injected with moments of perverse eroticism, science fiction, and smoky jazz. When Melissa (Agnés Spaak) returns to her ancestral home to claim her inheritance, she finds that the castle is filled with strange characters and dark secrets. Governing the crumbling manor is a diabolical scientist, Dr. Conrad Jekyll (Marcelo Arroita-Jáuregui), who uses high-frequency mind control to command an undead henchman (Hugo Blanco) to perform a series of vicious murders. When a dry-witted detective (Pastor Serrador) and Melissa’s suitor (Pepe Rubio) trace the crimes back to Jekyll’s castle, they realize the only way to trap the zombie is to use Melissa as bait.

Special Features: French soundtrack with optional English subtitles, English language soundtrack, Audio commentary by film historian Tim Lucas, Eleven minutes of alternate, more sexually explicit footage, French theatrical trailer, Italian theatrical trailer”

Abattoir

“A young reporter happens upon a series of gruesome murders tied to real estate mysteries, where entire rooms have been dismantled and pulled from their foundations. The fact that those rooms were the exact settings for heinous tragedies sets her and hardboiled cop on a search for the unimaginable. The stakes go up when it suddenly becomes very personal in this stylized and increasingly horrifying modern-noir.”

Candiland

“New lovebirds Peter and Tess find solace in each other s brokenness. They decide to isolate themselves from the world inside Peter s apartment, creating their own reality CANDiLAND, but their possessive love descends into a surreal savagery. Cut-off, Peter s father must fight to save them both before they completely disappear into madness.”

Godzilla [Blu-Ray]

“A giant radioactive monster called Godzilla awakens from its slumber to wreak destruction on its creators.”

Dead West

“A charismatic outlaw sets out on a murderous cross-country trip searching for true love. Each time he thinks he has found “the one,” he ends up disappointed – and she ends up dead. Managing to elude capture by traveling from one town to the next, his luck runs out when Tony, the brother of one of his victims, tracks him down. Suddenly the hunter becomes the hunted as Tony seeks vengeance by enforcing his own brand of vigilante justice.”

The Priests: Exorcism

“After a girl is assaulted, two priests must determine if she was attacked by an evil spirit or a molester.”

Queen of the Damned [Blu-Ray]

“After years of slumber, the legendary vampire has awakened and found acceptance in a tattooed, pierced and black-clad world. He’s a rock star. And his awesome goth-riffed sound has echoed around the globe…and stirred to life the fearsome Mother of All Vampires. Based on “The Vampire Chronicles” by Anne Rice, whose work previously came to the screen in “Interview with the Vampire.””

Recovery

“The night before their high school graduation, Jessie and her friends are guided by a ”Find My iPhone” app to recover her lost device from a house whose demented tenants are hell-bent on making her a flesh-and-blood member of the family.”

Pacific Rim [Blu-Ray]

“When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”
