"Unholy" Set for September DVD Release

About two years back, there was a whole bunch of buzz about a new horror movie called Unholy. Directed by newcomer Daryl Goldberg and starring Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog) and Nicholas Brendon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), the film dealt with occult Nazi artifacts secretly being held in a small Pennsylvania town. Stills were released in September 2005, followed later that month by the official trailer... and then nothing. Silencio.

Now, finally, there's news. DreadCentral.com is reporting that Starz Entertainment (you may remember them more fondly as Anchor Bay Entertainment, once upon a time) has acquired Unholy and will be putting it on DVD on September 4, 2007. Special features are still to be announced (and, in fact, Starz has yet to officially release anything). For more information on the movie, visit the official website.

"Xombie" on DVD

For those that don't know, Xombie is an incredibly cool web cartoon about a smarter-than-your-average-zombie zombie that protects a little girl from oncoming hordes of the lesser-in-intelligence undead. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out at http://www.xombified.com . Ok, it's a cool web cartoon-that's all fine and dandy.(read more...)

"The Manson Family" Coming to DVD April 26th

Certainly the best news of the last two weeks for me has been the following: The Manson Family is arriving on a 2-disc DVD set on April 26th. For those that haven't heard, The Manson Family is supposedly one of the most disturbing portrayals of Charles Manson's murders ever filmed, and has been in production for fifteen years (!!!!). That and the soundtrack totally rips, as it features an entire catalog of Phil Anselmo-related bands such as Superjoint Ritual and Necrophagia.(read more...)
