Society (Arrow Video Collector’s Edition)


This Society package is amazing – the artwork, the box, the comic exclusive, the ridiculous amount of special features – and it’s going to be another strong release you need on your shelf.

A classic sci-fi flick coming to you on Blu-Ray thanks to Kino Lorber. I can’t find any special features at this point, but it doesn’t release until June 16. Kino always releases quality, though. Right now at $19.99.

Vampyros Lesbos (Severin Films)


Jess Franco’s surreal, erotic horror film about a vampiress luring women to an island in the Mediterranean is coming to Blu-Ray thanks to Severin Films, with quite a few interviews with and special features. You also get that wonderful cover art! This releases on May 12 and is $24.99.

She Killed in Ecstasy (Severin Films)

It only makes sense that Severin would release She Killed in Ecstasy right along with Vampyros Lesbos. It’s Jess Franco’s follow-up film, and you might as well pick up both at the same time! Comes out May 12 at $24.99.

The Food of the Gods/Frogs (Scream Factory)

Here’s another double-feature from Scream Factory, this time a creature feature. The Food of the Gods is a really good H.G. Wells story, but I’m not familiar with Frogs. Both of these, though, are sure to give you a fear of the outdoors just in time for summer. Releases May 26 with a price of $15.89.

Tentacles/Reptilicus (Scream Factory)

Grindhouse Releasing has been doing excellent work with their latest releases (did you see the list of features on that The Beyond release!?), and expect nothing less from this special edition of Cannibal Ferox. This releases May 26 with a price of $35.96, but don’t let the cost daunt you – this will be worth it.

This is a double-disc release like Vinegar Syndrome usually does – one Blu-Ray, one DVD. Glad to see this slasher film getting a Blu-Ray release from a great company. Pre-order for May 26 release for a low low price of $14.99.
