‘The Legend of Hell House,’ ‘Queen Margot’ and ‘The Walking Dead’ Are the Best New DVD/Blu Releases of the Week

26 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. The Legend of Hell House The Belasco House had seen its fair share of tragedy and carnality even before the man who had it built disappeared, but the years since have seen a continuation of death and terror. It’s known as Hell House, the Mt. Everest of haunted houses, and now a team consisting of a scientist, his wife and two mediums is going in to prove once and for all whether or not ghosts and the afterlife exist. Two of them are going to find out first hand before the week is out. Richard Matheson’s novel (Hell House) was adapted to the screen way back in ’73, but it remains one of the best haunted house flicks out there. There are legitimate chills throughout, some PG-rated sexiness and a wonderfully intense performance from »

New on DVD Blu-ray August 26, 2014: 'Belle,' 'Portlandia,' 'Walking Dead'

25 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Belle"

What's It About? This 18th century English romance is about Dido Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a biracial woman raised by her aristocratic great uncle and aunt, Lord and Lady Mansfield. She grows up alongside her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) as equals and best friends, but as they come of age, their differences become all too apparent -- to each other and to their would-be suitors. Meanwhile, Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) is facing a trial as Lord Chief Justice of England that could change the future of slavery. Will Dido find love on her own terms?

Why We're In: It's an elegant period piece perfect for Jane Austen fans, and it's a subtle but effective examination of the intersection of class and race in 18th century England. Mbatha-Raw is fantastic, and director Amma Asante has an excellent eye for detail.

Review: The Quiet Ones (2014)

18 August 2014 3:16 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Hammer Films have for the most part, done a good job with choosing which films to make since returning in 2007 to give horror fans some genuinely good entertainment. Sure, for every Let Me In, there’s been entries like The Resident, but for the most part, Hammer has done a great job at returning as one of the best genre companies to be making original horror films today. John Pogue’s The Quiet Ones adds another winner to the Hammer legacy, giving genre fans one hell of a possession film, and a fresh take on a somewhat stagnant sub-genre.

Following a group of students and their fearless teacher (Jared Harris, TV’s Mad Men, I Shot Andy Warhol) as they document their attempt at finding a way to create a poltergeist through experimenting on a tormented young woman named Jane (Bates Motel‘s Olivia Cooke in one hell of a »

Bluray Review: The Legend Of Hell House

16 August 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

While the gang at Scream Factory does an excellent job giving genre fans updated collector’s editions of forgotten or long lost ’80s-era fan favorites, the output of films from the 1970′s aren’t focused on as much as some fans would want(a release here and there). The great part is, that when the Scream Factory crew Do get their hands on a 70′s horror film, it usually means that horror fans will be getting a nice looking HD versions of some beloved titles that haven’t seen the Bluray glory so far. This is definitely the case with Sf’s Bluray release of John Hough’s 1973 classic, The Legend Of Hell House.  While the disc isn’t packed to the brim with the amount of special features one would expect, the film itself is worth the price, as it has never looked better.

Today on Trailers from Hell, Brian Trenchard-Smith rediscovers another dark Brit drama about the death penalty, "Let Him Have It," starring Christopher Eccleston as the real-life murderer of a policeman. The hangman Albert Pierrepoint (of "Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman") makes a small but important appearance in Peter Medek’s 1991 film about the controversial 1953 execution of Derek Bentley for the murder of a policeman (even though Bentley merely egged on the actual shooter with the phrase, “Let him have it.”) The film stars Christopher Eccleston as the doomed Bentley, Tom Courtenay as his father and a supporting cast featuring a who’s who of British character actors including Edward Hardwicke (Watson of BBC’s "Sherlock Holmes"), Michael Gough ("Horror of Dracula") and Clive Revill ("The Legend of Hell House") as the executioner Pierrepoint.

A whole bunch of Scream Factory goodness was dropped into our inbox this morning, so let's forgo the usual chit-chat and cut right to the chase!

Horror's 7 Most Haunting Houses

27 May 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Aside from The Return of… or The Revenge of…, there may be no more beloved horror titles than those involving The House…. There is something very mysterious and foreboding about a mysterious house containing all kinds of unknown horrors.

Shout Factory has released a new entry on the list with House in the Alley arising today, May 27th. The obscure Vietnamese horror pic is sure to pique the interest of fans and follow in the footsteps of some of the freaky House-themed films of the past…which leads us to our newest Top List: Horror's 7 Most Haunting Houses.

Make no mistake; we aren't necessarily talking about 'haunted houses' here, but 'haunting houses,' meaning movies with House in the title that did a wonderful job of scaring the hell out of us. We'll begin with some honorable mentions to get the ball rolling.

The Legend of Hell House Being Reiterated

1 May 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

One of the greatest tales of terror ever told, Richard Matheson's Hell House was turned into a movie entitled The Legend of Hell House back in 1973. If you haven't see it... do yourselves a favor... track it down Now and watch it before the remake comes. Speaking of which...

Shock Till You Drop is reporting that 20th Century Fox is getting set to revisit that hellish setting once again with a fresh remake. Fox has been trying to get this project off the ground since 2007, but apparently with the success of film's like The Conjuring, their interest has been more than renewed. As of this writing there's still no director or writer attached. Stay tuned.

In Hell House, Rolf Rudolph Deutsch is going die. But when Deutsch, a wealthy magazine and newpaper publisher, starts thinking seriously about his impending death, he offers to pay a physicist and two mediums, »

Exclusive: The Legend of Hell House Next Up for Remake Again?

1 May 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

This seems like a no-brainer if you're a studio exec looking to cash-in on the latest supernatural craze that's happening in Hollywood, but I've been hearing the last two weeks that The Legend of Hell House is up for a remake again. No writer or director have been set. If you recall, back in 2007 when 20th Century Fox had its Fox Atomic banner, the 1973 film was being mulled over for an update.
