James Shigeta, one of the first prominent Asian-American actors, who co-starred in “Die Hard” and starred in “Flower Drum Song,” died Monday at 81.

Review: Bad Dreams and Visiting Hours (Double Feature Blu-ray)

25 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The good ol’ horror-loving folks at Scream! Factory recently gave us a double dose of hospital-themed terror in high definition with their Bad Dreams/Visiting Hours Blu-ray, which features the two cult classics as well as a handful of new bonus features. Par for the course, Scream’s presentation of the material is yet another home run, making it a must-own for fans or even the uninitiated.

First up on the hospital horror double feature is Bad Dreams, which follows a young woman named Cynthia (Jennifer Rubin) who awakens from a 13-year coma the sole survivor of a religious cult that burned together in a suicide pact orchestrated by an enigmatic leader named Harris (Richard Lynch). Harris believed true spiritual unity awaited his followers if they all died together, but of course with Cynthia surviving, that leaves her leader with some unfinished business. Soon, the young woman begins to fear »

Football: Chelsea v Galatasaray

7.30pm, ITV

Despite faring far better than the other English clubs in their Champions League round of 16 first-leg, Chelsea had reason to be disappointed with their 1-1 draw at Galatasaray's Türk Telekom Arena, a game in which, for the most part, they were dominant. Nevertheless, José Mourinho's charges are strong favourites to qualify here, but will be wary of former striker Didier Drogba who, though having just turned 36, still possesses qualities to trouble the hardiest of defences.

Review: "Bad Dreams" (1988) And "Visiting Hours" (1982) Blu-ray Double Feature From Scream Factory

19 February 2014 3:09 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Scream Factory continues their winning streak of releasing horror film favorites with their double feature Blu-ray release of 1988’s Bad Dreams and 1982’s Visiting Hours. They originally released these films together on DVD in September 2011.

Bad Dreams opened on Friday, April 8, 1988 and is, in hindsight, eerily prescient of David Koresh, the leader of the Branch Davidian religious sect who met a horrific end when the FBI closed in on him and his compound ignited into a conflagration on April 19, 1993 in Waco, TX. Jim Jones and the Jonestown deaths in 1978 also come to mind. In this film, the late Richard Lynch plays a cult leader named Harris who convinces a group of people that love and unity are the only ways to live, and he shows that love by dousing them all in gasoline and lighting them on fire. Jennifer Rubin plays Cynthia, a confused and reluctant holdout »
