Lionsgate launch Vestron Collectors Series in UK

  • Nerdly
If you’ve been keeping any eye on the BBFC website this news won’t come as that much of a surprise… However, Lionsgate UK have officially announced today the launch of the Vestron Collectors Series line of Blu-rays here in the UK! Yes, no longer will you have to fork over £30-40 to import the well-received Vestron Blus, instead you can get them right here in Blighty. The catch? It looks, at least from this announcement, that we won’t be getting All the Vestron titles – after all, there’s no Waxwork 2 included on the UK Blu.

From the press release:

Blood Diner

Restored and remastered, this Unrated Version has never been on Blu-ray!

Blu-ray Review: C.H.U.D. II: Bud The Chud Vestron Video Collector’s Series

  • DailyDead
Not all C.H.U.D. are created equal.

Within weeks of Arrow Video’s special edition Blu-ray of the original C.H.U.D.—still the best movie ever made about New York’s homeless being transformed by toxic waste into cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers—Lionsgate’s new(ish) Vestron Video Collector’s Series adds its 1989 sequel, C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud, to its growing library of collectible Blu-rays. The completist in me is happy to have both available in the best possible format. The supportive horror fan in me is happy for the film’s fans, who finally get to put a high-def version of a movie they adore on their shelves. The movie lover in me would be perfectly okay not seeing it again.

C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud is what Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps might be if it weren’t any good.

Horror Highlights: Watch the Short Film The Hopping Dead, Metalstorm Blu-ray, Prometheus: Life And Death #3

Created as part of Justin Lin’s Yomfyom contest, Jimmy Lui’s (of Black Mast Studios) The Hopping Dead aims to terrify its audience to the bone. Read on for more details and to watch the short film in its entirety.

Lin’s competition had 2 rules. The film had to be less than 3 minutes running time and we could only use 4 lines of pre-selected dialogue — other than that there were no stipulations.

‘Evilspeak’ Blu-ray Review (88 Films)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Clint Howard, R.G. Armstrong, Joe Cortese, Claude Earl Jones, Haywood Nelson, Don Stark, Charles Tyner, Hamilton Camp, Louie Gravance, Jim Greenleaf, Lynn Hancock, Loren Lester | Written by Eric Weston, Joseph Garofalo | Directed by Eric Weston

From the 1970’s and 80’s to now, one thing will always be a sad constant: bullies will always exist. And there will always be that weak-willed teenager who is the constant target of these awful people. But, there’s always this fulfillment that comes about from films like Patrick and Carrie, that the bullied kid has a tendency to lash out at those who oppress them with otherworldly forces. These kids search outward for any escape and that leads them to some very dark corners. In the case of Evilspeak, that dark corner is The Devil himself, and the results are typically gory and fantastically outrageous.

Put simply, Evilspeak, is about a thousand pounds

'Guardians of the Galaxy' leads Makeup and Hairstylists Guild nominations
This is the second year for the Makeup and Hairstylists Guild joining the awards game, and they've been a welcome addition to the circuit. They spread their nods thin across a number of categories, but it's a good window into what this branch digs, for sure. This year, the only two films on the Academy's bake-off list of finalists that didn't garner any recognition were "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and "Noah." Meaning "Foxcatcher," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Maleficent" and "The Theory of Everything" were each represented in one form or another. Meanwhile, "Guardians of the Galaxy" led with the most mentions at three, while "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Interstellar" and "Into the Woods" each got a pair. As previously announced, Oscar-winning make-up artist Rick Baker and Emmy-nominated hair stylist Kathryn Blondell will receive the Guild's Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Review by: agentorange

movie Rating: 6 out of 10

Bluray Rating: 8 out of 10

[Editor's note: Shout! Factory are offering 50% off all Corman Blu-rays if you pick up all seven as a bundle. Pretty sweet deal.]

I think the late 70s and into the 80s is my favourite Roger Corman era. Many people disagrees with me on that, of course. His 60s output is awesome (particularly if you're an exploitation nut), but if you're a straight genre fan and dig on cult scifi, horror or creatures features it really doesn't get any better than this period.

The reason for this era of great output is because of three films: Jaws, Alien and Star Wars. When these films came out, Corman realized the studios had started making His kind of movie and were making them bigger and better. This forced Corman to sink more money and talent into the genre films he was producing and in some of

Return Of The Living Dead (1985) Blu-Ray Review

In one of the many special features packed onto this loaded blu-ray, actor James Karen, who plays the hapless Frank, recounts a story of going to Greece and being greeted with "Send more cops" by one of the locals. If that doesn't speak to the unlikely longevity of this movie, then I'm not sure what does.

This unauthorized semi-sequel to George Romero's zombie trilogy bowed the same year as Day of the Dead and to my mind remains the superior film. Whereas Romero's film was treading some of the same ground as its precursor Dawn of the Dead, O'bannon's Return dove headlong into postmodern territory, expertly walking the fine line between comedy and horror, bringing something new to the walking dead genre while still observing what makes a good zombie picture work.

For the uninitiated, Return starts off in a medical supply company where older employee Frank (Karen) is showing dimwitted new employee,

Joshua Reviews Roger Corman’s Galaxy Of Terror And Forbidden World [DVD Reviews]

When people think of Roger Corman, they think of two things: camp filled films with copious amounts of blood and skin, and Death Race 2000. However, hoping to help change that is the genius collective known as Shout! Factory.

Releasing a collection of films under the banner of Roger Corman’s Cult Classics, then company has added to their ever growing catalogue of Roger Corman produced projects, which currently includes the aforementioned Death Race 2000 among others, with two new releases of classic projects, Galaxy of Terror, and Forbidden World.

Both are solid winners here, but the true king of the pair here is Galaxy Of Terror.

The film follows the crew of a rescue ship, who while on a mission, come into contact with a group of monsters. However, these aren’t just your run of the mill beasts. These monsters are bread from th very subconscious of each member of the crew,
