New on DVD This Week

20 October 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | The Flickcast | See recent The Flickcast news »

Here’s a list of some of the new movie and TV shows coming to DVD and Blu-ray this week that we’re looking forward to seeing. Also, there’s some classic, and not-so-classic, movies hitting Blu-ray for the first time this week as well.

Of all the new releases, we’re particularly interested in the Blu-ray versions of movies and TV shows such as Blood: The Last Vampire, Easy Rider and the first seasons of Hawaii Five-o and Vega$. Plus, I think some movie with lots of robots, explosions and Megan Fox also came out this week as well.

Check them out.

William Castle Film Collection—including Spine Tingler!—coming to DVD

17 August 2009 12:19 PM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that it will release the William Castle Film Collection October 20. The five-dvd set will include eight films by the veteran genre director/producer (famed for his attention-grabbing in-theater gimmicks), including three that have never been on disc before, plus a host of special features.

The most notable of the bonuses is Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story, Jeffrey Schwarz’s documentary on the filmmaker’s life and work that has won raves and awards over the last couple of years on the festival circuit. Also included are two episodes of the Castle-produced Ghost Story TV series. The three new-to-dvd titles are 1962’s Zotz!, a fantasy/comedy about a coin with magic powers; The Old Dark House, Castle’s 1963 take on the classic haunted-mansion tale; and ’63’s 13 Frightened Girls, in which a group of diplomats’ daughters at a Swiss boarding school become self-styled spies.
