We should go ahead and rename December 12th “Arrow Video Day,” because the fine fiends over there have a ton of titles coming out this Tuesday, including Special Edition sets for The Premonition and Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood, and they’ve also put together standalone special edition Blu-rays for both House and House II: The Second Story. Severin Films is resurrecting Asylum this Tuesday, and fans can finally get their hands on the latest season of Game of Thrones, as well as a box set featuring every episode from all seven seasons.

Other notable releases for December 12th include K-Shop, Once Upon A Time at Christmas, Brackenmore, The Snake Woman, Beware the Lake, and Hollow Creek.

Class of 1987: Frightning Strikes Twice – Celebrating House II: The Second Story with the Cast & Crew [Part 2]

[Editor's Note: A version of this retrospective originally appeared in the September 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine.] With House II: The Second Story, the vastly underrated sequel written and directed by Ethan Wiley (who also wrote the screenplay for the original House), New World Pictures introduced audiences to a whole new world filled with unexpected frights and adventures with an Old West twist. The sequel was released in late August of 1987 and took a decidedly left turn away from the more straightforward house of horrors style seen in Steve Miner’s original film, instead favoring a tone that was much more light-hearted, fun-spirited, and far more family friendly.

For the uninitiated, House II follows a young man named Jesse (Arye Gross), who inherits a strange house from the parents who gave him up for adoption when he was just an infant. As he begins to settle into his new dwelling with the help of his girlfriend, Kate (Lar Park Lincoln), his best pal, Charlie (Jonathan Stark), and Charlie’s aspiring musician girlfriend,

And while The Second Story did respectable business during its two-week theatrical run that summer and was also a profitable sequel for New World, House II isn’t a film that I feel gets nearly the love that it should. Case in point: Joshua Jackson’s character makes a comment about House II during the sequels discussion scene in Scream 2,

Blu-ray Review: House: Two Stories Collection

Growing up, I was a big fan of both House and House II: The Second Story, so as you can imagine, Arrow Video’s recent House: Two Stories Blu-ray collection was right up my proverbial alley. Both films look better here than they did on DVD (which is how I’ve been viewing them for years now), the new retrospective featurettes do a great job of diving deep into both movies, and the other supplemental materials included are a welcome blast from the past. For fans who are on the fence about adding House: Two Stories to your home media collections, I can emphatically say this set is well worth the investment.

In House (1986), we meet famed writer Roger Cobb (William Katt), a Vietnam vet with a slumping career and a marriage that has hit the skids after his son disappeared while visiting Roger’s aunt Elizabeth in her gothic abode one fateful day.

Gimme Shelter and Grey Gardens filmmaker Albert Maysles dies, aged 88

Gimme Shelter and Grey Gardens filmmaker Albert Maysles dies, aged 88
Gimme Shelter and Grey Gardens documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles has died, aged 88.

Maysles passed away from natural causes on Thursday (March 5), a spokesperson for the Maysles Centre told The Hollywood Reporter.

Albert formed one-half of a filmmaking duo with his late brother David Maysles, and together they released many acclaimed documentaries.

The Maysles brothers chronicled the Rolling Stones' infamous concert at Altamont for 1970's Gimme Shelter, and later explored the lives of two New York eccentrics in Grey Gardens.

The making of Grey Gardens was dramatised by HBO in the Emmy-winning television movie of the same name, in which Arye Gross and Justin Louis played the Maysles brothers.

Albert more recently worked with Espn to complete his 1980 documentary Muhammad and Larry, which chronicled a title bout between Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes.

Last summer, Albert was honoured with a National Medal of Art by Us president Barack Obama.

The Best Of Number Two – House II: The Second Story

One of House II: The Second Story’s taglines was “It’s getting weirder!”, although if you caught Steve Miner’s original film expectations should have been high that House II would be as frenetic and chaotic. But Ethan Wiley’s sequel does nothing with the first film, instead branching off of the notion that old houses have crazy secrets and running with it into western sub-genre terrain. Because House already paved the way for Wiley do off-the-wall shit, House II takes things even further – both with the zany storyline and with the comedy, which was always apparent in the first film but much bleaker than the slapstick here.

The Second Story starts with a rainy night, with a couple trying to get their child out of a house before a cowboy-hat wearing zombie shoots them up. And then it jumps years into the future, when Jesse (Arye Gross) finally

TV on Tap: "Mythbusters" Will Tackle "Breaking Bad," "The Goodwin Games" Closes Early and "Malibu Country" Debuts Big

Castle investigates a murder at the Sci-Fi Con...

but why is guest star Ed Quinn dressed in such a baggy costume?

News

In a surprising development, Fox has cut back on its order for the Becki Newton/Scott Foley comedy, The Goodwin Games, reducing the series frist season from thirteen to seven episodes and suddenly halting filming. Usually, that's a sign that the network doesn't have a lot of confidence in the show, but in this case there's a plausible alternative — with The Mindy Project getting a 26-episode season and Ben & Kate getting 19 episodes, Goodwin's first season was cut to match the needs of the Tuesday night lineup.

Is the sitcom spin-off dead? The failure of The Farm makes it look that way, especially since CBS doesn't seem to be looking to extend the life of its older hits with a Frasier-style (or Joey) spin-off.

Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies

  • The Backlot
Brace yourselves. This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings. Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here at AfterElton.

But before we get to that, an introduction. A few weeks ago we asked AfterElton readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote. We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released. We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.

We also wanted to expand our list to 100 from the top 50 we had done previously. We figured there were finally enough quality gay films to justify the expansion. And we wanted to break out gay documentaries onto their own list (You'll find the
