27 June 2016 5:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

June is ending on a quiet note for horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases, as we only have six titles coming our way on June 28th.

Blue Underground has shown some love to two cult classics with their Blu-ray double feature of Circus of Fear and Five Golden Dragons, and Arrow Video is resurrecting another cult classic (albeit one that is a bit more recent) with their Return of the Killer Tomatoes Special Edition Blu-ray.

Other notable titles being released this Tuesday include Alien Strain, Shark Exorcist, Forgotten Tales, and Hotel Inferno.

Alien Strain (Mti Home Video, DVD)

After his girlfriend vanishes without a trace on a camping trip, he quickly goes from witness to suspect. Now, a year later, she returns to the very spot from which she was taken, but not like she was before.

Blu-ray Review – Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988)

27 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Return of the Killer Tomatoes, 1988.

Directed by John De Bello.

Starring Anthony Starke, George Clooney, Karen Mistal, John Astin, Steve Lundquist, Michael Villani, Rick Rockwell, J. Stephen Peace and Charlie Jones.

Synopsis:

Mad scientist Professor Gangreen is at it again as he prepares a new tomato army disguised as humans to take over the world. No, really…

It’s always fun to take a peek back at the early career of a current A-lister and the pre-superstar works of George Clooney are some of the most enjoyable to visit, especially as the man himself doesn’t appear to be ashamed of what he had to appear in to get noticed, unlike some (asking Renée Zellweger to sign a copy of Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation just to see the reaction ranks very high on the bucket list). Whether it’s the funny-for-all-the-wrong-reasons turd that is Combat Academy or the »

R.I.P. Patty Duke

29 March 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Acclaimed actress Patty Duke has died at the age of 69. USA Today reports that the actress passed away earlier this morning due to sepsis from a ruptured intestine.

Duke won an Oscar at the age of sixteen for her portrayal of Helen Keller in 1962's "The Miracle Worker" which led to the successful 1963 ABC sitcom "The Patty Duke Show" and the controversial film adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's "The Valley of the Dolls".

After years of struggle with an undiagnosed mental illness, Duke was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and prescribed lithium, which she credits with saving her life and led to her becoming an advocate for mental illness treatment.

She married "The Addams Family" actor John Astin and ultimately had three children (two with him). One of her sons, "The Lord of the Rings" actor Sean Astin, released the following statement on Facebook:

Review: Charles Chaplin's "The Kid" (1921); Criterion Blu-ray Special Edition

31 January 2016 6:22 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

“Tramps And Orphans”

By Raymond Benson

The Criterion Collection continues its excellent re-issuing of Charles Chaplin’s major works with The Kid, the first full-length feature from the filmmaker. Released in 1921, Chaplin expanded on the two and three reelers he had been making (a “reel” at that time was approximately 10-15 minutes long) to the six-reels of The Kid (the original cut was just over an hour; Chaplin re-edited it in the early 70s to create the now standard 53-minute version). It’s still a short film, but longer than what were considered “shorts.”

The Kid received high acclaim on its release and was one of the writer/actor/director’s most popular pictures. This was in part due to the presence of young Jackie Coogan in the titular role. Coogan, who grew up to play Uncle Fester in The Addams Family television series of the 1960s, steals the movie »
