What We Left Behind – Looking Back At Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Blu-ray Review)

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, caught in between the mega popular Star Trek: The Next Generation and the more traditionally plotted Star Trek: Voyager, was typically overlooked during its time on the air or unappreciated. However, it was a show that was a gamechanger for the television landscape and today’s highly normal serialized storytelling. With no fully remastered and restored Blu-ray sets like The Next Generation likely ever coming fruition, we are instead treated to What We Left Behind; a documentary chronicling the series and its legacy with all the important people brought back to tell the story (Well, except Avery Brooks). Shout! Factory will be releasing this exciting event on Blu-ray on August 6th. This briefly had an event night in theaters, so if you missed out on it, this new Blu-ray is your chance. Plus it is truly loaded with more material beyond the documentary, so you’ll really want to check it out.

Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (Blu-ray Review)

Last month it was Ivan Ooze, now Shout! Factory is moving onward with the Power Rangers movies with TURBO. Personally, I can’t say I’m familiar with this one as the whole thing had passed me by and I was probably “too cool” for it when Turbo released in 1997. I recently spoke with Steve Cardenas about the films and VERY positive about the first Power Ranger movie and pretty mum about Turbo here. So we shall see. Anyway, this is the first time for the film to be on the Blu-ray format (Was not included in the big set from last year) and it looks to also contain some nice supplemental fun here as well. You’ll be able to add it to your collection of Zords, Discs and more when it arrives on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory on July 30th.

The Reptile (Blu-ray Review)

Releasing alongside Lust For A Vampire this month, Scream Factory also will be dipping into Hammer Horror’s The Reptile. It makes its American debut and brings with it a few new bonus features while keeping true to what has been on the Blu-rays so far with the archival bonus features getting ported over. That seems to be par for the course with the Hammer Horror films from Scream Factory. I’ve never seen The Reptile, but with it including a Doctor Who actor in Jacqueline Pearce in the cast (Sure, “just” The Two Doctors serial but she’s done Big Finish stuff as well), I’m all too eager to check this one out now. You’ll be able to check it out too when it arrives on July 30th. To land yourself a copy of The Reptile, you can pre-order the Blu-ray by going to Shout! Factory’s website, or you can simply scroll down to the Amazon link that follows the whole review and click on that (And help our little site a hair in the process).

Lust For A Vampire (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory’s devotion to Hammer Horror continues in 2019 (Wait until you see the Hammer stuff coming in September) with a title unreleased on Blu-ray so far (And has a bit of demand) with Lust For A Vampire. The second film in the noted Karnstein trilogy, it will be making its debut here with some fresh new bonus materials and a 4K scan from the original negative. While reviled by many (Even those who worked on the film), Lust For A Vampire has a pretty solid cult following and really fits the bill to be a Scream Factory release (In the UK, it is being released a few weeks after this one by Studio Canal). Lust For A Vampire releases on July 30th (Same day as The Reptile) and is available for pre-order by going to the Shout! Factory website or by clicking on the Amazon link that follows the review.

Critters Attack! (Blu-ray Review)

Hey, the Critters are back! All right! Well, they came back already this year with Shudder’s Critters: The First Binge back in March. But now we are getting a sequel to the original film series with Critters Attack! This one also boasts the return of Dee Wallace to the series for the first time since the original film. Warner Bros will be putting the movie out on Blu-ray on July 23rd, but this is in anticipation of some big SyFy Channel premiere of the film later this year or something or other is what I gather. If you want to have it next to your Scream Factory box set and actually own the thing (AND see it before its TV debut), then you go right ahead, scroll down, and click on the Amazon link where you can secure yourself a copy of this return to the little hedgehog-ish, ball rollings, human eating furrballs known as the Critters.

This elaborate set includes every episode, the first time in America for the second season, as well as plenty of new bonus material. If you act fast, on Shout! Factory’s website, the first 500 orders will come with a collectible Space 1999 snow globe. You want that, you know you do. But, as of writing this, it may be too late. Personally, I’d always meant to check this show out and this Blu-ray set seemed the most appropriate way to start my journey. You can start yours, revisit or decorate your movie collection with this fine release by ordering from Shout! Factory or the Amazon link following the review.

Universal Horror Collection: Volume 2 (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory named their last Universal Horror Collection “Volume 1” and they are coming through with more within just a month with “Volume 2”. The first set was originally a Karloff and Lugosi collection, renamed for one reason or another (And with this label, you can put much more content out under the Universal Horror banner). This one doesn’t have the distinction of those two actors, but it isn’t without merit or a common thread among the films. On one hand Volume 2 is a bit of a Mad Doctor/Scientist collection of films, but within 3 of those a common actor is among them. This could be somewhat of a Lionel Atwill set (A new mini doc is even devoted to him) as he stars in 3 films in this set and is as common a fixture in the Universal Classic Monster films as his colleagues Karloff and Lugosi. This new 4-disc set will be available at the end of the month on July 23rd and can be pre-ordered from the Shout! Factory website or the bottom of this review via the Amazon link.

The Leopard Man (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory is showing no limits this year to the eras with which they are bulking out their library in 2019. Coming July 15th is a the 1943 horror film The Leopard Man. Its a film notable for being the first with which to appropriately or not be afraid to tackle the subject of serial killers (And so ahead of that, the term “serial killer” hadn’t been coined yet). This release boasts a new 4K transfer from the original negative and a brand new commentary to go with a previous one done by director William Friedkin. The Leopard Man looks to be as solid a package as you could put together for a cult film of its age. You can check out the review and/or pre-order yourself a copy by clicking on the Amazon link following the review. Continue reading ‘The Leopard Man (Blu-ray Review)’


THE ADDAMS FAMILY & ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES Arrive on Blu-ray In 2-Movie Collection October 1st

This is some exciting, creepy, kooky news! Back in the 90s, Barry Sonnenfeld began an impressive 4-film run with The Addams Family and followed it up with one of the best comedy sequels of all time, The Addams Family Values (he followed that up with Get Shorty and Men in Black). Now both films are coming to Blu-ray (Values for the very first time), just in time for the new animated film hitting theaters this fall. There’s little reason not to be excited about these very enjoyable, well-cast, and visually dazzling films.

Corvette Summer (Blu-ray Review)

Warner Archive Collection has delivered a nice little surprise this month in the form of 1978’s Corvette Summer. Or for many years as people knew it “That movie Mark Hamill did after Star Wars”. The film didn’t quite strike with audiences that year and had a weird reputation, but I’ll argue that its kinda sorta worth another look. Not that its some forgotten  or unappreciated gem from 41 years ago, but moreso that its a perfectly fine film and not this dreadful thing its reputation would have you thinking about it. Plus, Annie Potts rules in this movie and you should check her out at least. The film made its way on June 18th, though it looks like the initial run might be out, so you’ll have to wait on the second wave to order. There is a link you can do something with below, but in the meantime, check out this review or you can hear me discuss the film on the Forgotten Films podcast a few years back by clicking HERE.

Night Of The Creeps – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Scream Factory like to fashion themselves on housing many John Carpenter films, but they are also looking like a library of iconic actor Tom Atkins (The Fog, Escape From New York, Halloween III: Season of the Witch). And now they are doing Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps. This cult classic has been on Blu-ray for a good many years, but is finding an enhancement in joining the coveted Collector’s Edition line from Scream Factory. There’s even an edition you can order that has a TOM ATKINS ACTION FIGURE with it. How awesome is that? They are adding loads of new interviews for extras as well as porting over the ones from the other edition. Its a monster release from a label known for bringing monsters to their finest releases. This one came out on June 25th, so you can order whenever you’re ready and willing to enhance your movie collection with this little slice of alien/zombie-esque action horror comedy.
