The self-admitted Hollywood nomad was 67 years old. Susan was likely best known to horror fans for her role as Aunt Cheryl in Night Warning (which also featured a young Bill Paxton), but her genre credentials stretch much, much further than the William Asher directed pic.

Continuing on from the start of our new weekly feature last week, rounding up the new releases coming to DVD and Blu-ray each Monday, we have a brilliant line-up of films making their way to the shelves of your local stores today, and of course the virtual shelves online.

We’re treated to a fantastic set of new films this week – some of the finest of last year – a few excellent TV shows, and a handful of classics that are being given the HD treatment, released on Blu-ray for the first time.

We’re big fans of the Blu-ray format here at HeyUGuys, and can’t recommend it enough to you. If your television has the means to play Blu-rays and you don’t yet have a player, I thoroughly encourage you to treat yourself to one at the nearest possible opportunity. I made the upgrade about two years ago, »
