October 30th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Mandy, Chillers: The Complete Series, Our House, Slender Man

  • DailyDead
It’s almost time, dear readers! Halloween is nearly upon us, and we have one last batch of killer Blu-ray and DVD releases to get us ready for All Hallows’ Eve this week. One of the best films of 2018—Panos Cosmatos’ Mandy —arrives on both formats this Tuesday, courtesy of Rlje Films, and both Slender Man and Our House come home as well. The Matrix Trilogy is getting a much-deserved 4K treatment from Warner Bros., and a series that I really enjoyed back in the day—Chillers, hosted by Anthony Perkins—is headed to DVD, and I’m so excited to get the opportunity to finally revisit it.

Cult film fans will definitely want to pick up a copy of the Special Edition of Torso from Arrow Video, and Vinegar Syndrome is doing the Dark Lord’s work with a quartet of releases they have on tap as well, including The Incubus,

3 Video Nasties from Region B

Guest reviewer Lee Broughton covers a trio of grisly horrors. The Toolbox Murders, Blood Harvest and A Cat in the Brain each feature a pop culture icon in a leading role. Hollywood actor Cameron Mitchell, oddball 1960s crooner Tiny Tim and the Italo horror director and all-round enfant terrible Lucio Fulci find themselves caught up in their own gory and disturbing splatter show. Perhaps unsurprisingly, all three films fell foul of the British Board of Film Classification at the time of their original release in the UK.

Halloween 2017: Wtf: 10 Bonkers Movies to Watch on Shudder

  • DailyDead
As horror fans, we are constantly seeking out the new and the different. Because the genre is marked by so much sameness—sequels, franchises, remakes, copies of copies—it can sometimes be a challenge to find those horror films that truly carve out their own space. They don’t even have to be great movies, necessarily; many times, “different” is enough to make us happy.

With that in mind, here are 10 horror movies currently available on the terrific streaming service Shudder that are, if nothing else, different from almost anything else you’ll watch this October. They vary in quality from title to title, but what even the roughest among them lacks in technical polish, it more than makes up for in sheer maniac insanity. After you’ve cycled through all your favorites this October, why not add a little Wtf to your lineup?

‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ Scaring Up (Another) Remake at Warner Bros.

‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ Scaring Up (Another) Remake at Warner Bros.
Just in time for the ten-year anniversary of its last remake, Warner Bros. is reportedly scaring up yet another take on the 1956 horror classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” Deadline reports that John Davis will produce the new version for the studio, with David Leslie Johnson (best known for “The Conjuring 2” and “Orphan,” and recently tapped for both “Dungeons & Dragons” and the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” remake) on board to write the script.

Based on the 1954 novel “The Body Snatchers” from Jack Finney, “Invasion” has been adapted for the big screen repeatedly, first with Don Siegel’s original hit, which was later followed by Philip Kaufman’s lauded 1978 remake (also a hit) and Abel Ferrera’s 1993 “Body Snatchers.”

The Giant Spider Invasion – The Blu Review

Wisconson-based regional filmmaker Bill Rebane’s no-budget wonder ($300k to be exact) The Giant Spider Invasion was a hilariously cheesy 1975 throwback to the giant-monster flicks of the 50s, a trend then enjoying a revival with films like Empire Of The Ants and Food Of The Gods. This outrageous mix of giant monster motifs and backwoods sleaze plays like a hybrid of Tarantula and The Blob with its mixture of giant spiders and falling meteors. I saw The Giant Spider Invasion at the long-shuttered Ellisville Cinema in West St. Louis County (on a double bill with the David Niven vampire comedy Old Dracula). I recall the poster in the lobby which featured a gargantuan spider bearing down on a group of terrified people. In the air above the mega-arachnid was three helicopters and lying crumpled at the spider’s legs were burning cars as spotlights filled the sky. One of the
