Bluray Review: Scream Factory’s Blood And Lace & Nightmares Blurays

28 December 2015 4:34 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Scream Factory is having a hell of a year. So many releases to cover in such a small amount of time (I’m lying, I’ve got time, so keep ’em coming!). With how many releases the Shout! Factory horror imprint puts out every month, we figured we’d tackle a couple of them at once, and give you fright fanatics a double dose of Scream Factory greatness.

This time, we’re taking a good look at two films which could not be more different from each other. 1971’s pre-slasher era whodunnit, Blood And Lace and 1983’s anthology film, Nightmares. So, whether it’s Seinfeld’s Uncle Frank chasing people with a cleaver or Christina Raines trying to protect herself from deranged murderers is your thing, there’s a little something for everyone.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Fade To Black

19 December 2015 11:46 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I’ve always been obsessed with watching movies. From seeing 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea at the age of four at a Saturday matinee revival to today, the flickering shadow shows have filled my life. Consumed, I’m sure some would say. However, discerning fact from fiction has never been an issue, unlike Eric Binford, the hapless ‘hero’ of the eerie (and funny) Fade to Black (1980) – now here’s a kid with issues.

Written and directed by Vernon Zimmerman (The Unholy Rollers), Fade to Black was distributed by American Cinema Releasing on October 14th, 1980. The film bypassed audiences for the most part, but critics were generally pleased with the offbeat tone that it brought to the genre. If you love movies about movies, especially with a horror bent, Fade to Black is the film for you.

27 May 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

1979 is our "Year of the Month" and this post was way way too much fun to research. Before the main course of the Supporting Actress Smackdown (pushed to June 7th), let's marinate a little in the year that was.

Twilight Time Brings One of the Best American Films of the ’70s to Blu-ray

15 February 2015 9:21 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Specialty Blu-ray label Twilight Time continues to show their deep love for film with a continually growing and constantly eclectic selection of releases. The next few months will see Blu-ray titles as varied as To Sir With Love, U-Turn, The Night of the Generals and Zardoz. There were five titles on last month’s slate (released on 1/20) including a great American underdog tale in Breaking Away, an Indian biopic of uprising and war with Bandit Queen, Francois Truffaut’s female-driven revenge film The Bride Wore Black, Woody Allen’s surreal ode to the cinema in The Purple Rose of Cairo and a 30th Anniversary release of Fright Night. That last title — the only one not covered below — was actually released by the label once before with a far slimmer selection of special features. It immediately became a collector’s item, and now, barely three weeks after its re-release, this anniversary edition is already fetching ridiculous sums from »
