Fright At Home: September 10th’s DVD & Blu-ray Releases!

It’s Tuesday, so it’s time for the weekly rundown of what’s hitting stores with Fright At Home! This week may be one of the most important and jam packed as it’s filled with must-own cult obscurities & horror classics alike that deserve a spot in your collection. For better or worse, Friday The 13th: The Complete Collection Blu-ray set is finally out. It’s been met with quite a bit of controversy for many reasons (no Blu-ray 3D for Friday The 13th Part III: 3D, no unrated cut for Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday, missing extras, etc.), but for those just happy to just have the entire franchise collected in HD and housed all in one set, then this is for you. For those who feel burned once again by Paramount/Warner Bros, have no fear because the definitive documentary Crystal Lake Memories: The

The Best Blu-ray & DVD Releases of the Week: The Samurai-Fueled Blaxploitation You’ve Been Searching For

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. Drive-In Collection: Death Force / Vampire Hookers In Death Force, Doug Russell (James Iglehart) is a soldier on the way home to his wife and infant son, but when he runs afoul of two supposed friends he’s left for dead in the middle of the ocean. Luckily he washes up on an island beach where he’s found, nursed back to health, and trained in the way of the samurai by two Japanese soldiers unaware that their war (WWII) ended years prior. Vampire Hookers doesn’t really need a synopsis, does it? Vinegar Syndrome’s latest double feature of obscure drive-in favorites is one of the good ones thanks mostly to the first feature. At its core it’s a revenge flick, but the story touches and fight choreography make it a surprisingly good time

Severin to Open Both The House on Straw Hill and The House of Seven Corpses on Blu-ray and DVD

Around these parts if we had to pick what amounted to a hell of a decade for horror movies, it'd be easy to say that the Seventies were up there. Boundaries were pushed as well as the limits of what some would call good taste. Now two of that decade's weirdest films are back from the grave!

From the Press Release

Severin Films has announced the long awaited June 11th Blu-ray + DVD combo Us debut release of the controversial shocker House On Straw Hill and the creepy classic The House Of Seven Corpses.

B-Sides: They're Vampire Hookers, and Blood Is Not All That They Suck

I don’t recall having ever even heard of the 1978 horror comedy Vampire Hookers until seeing it mentioned in the awesome Filipino B-movie documentary Machete Maidens Unleashed. Something tells me Vampire Hookers cannot possibly be as amusing as its campy theme song.

While this T&A slapstick horror comedy starring John Carradine and Bruce Fairbairn about vampire hookers from the late B-movie maestro Cirio H. Santiago has somehow managed to escape my gaze over the years, the campy late-Seventies folk rock theme song that tells the story of this wacky slice of Filipinosploitation did not escape my ears. When your movie’s theme song contains lyrics along the lines of “Well, they’re vampire hookers, and blood is not all that they suck”, nothing else really needs to be said.

Direct from the credits of the motion picture of the same name, here’s the theme song to Vampire Hookers
