21 November 2016 6:39 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After last week being rather quiet on the home entertainment front, November 22nd is looking to make up for some lost time with a ton of great genre Blu-ray and DVD titles coming our way on Tuesday. This week, Scream Factory is showing some love to another David Cronenberg classic, Rabid, and Arrow Video is resurrecting the cult film C.H.U.D. in HD for their brand new Special Edition Blu-ray.

Lionsgate is putting out a pair of Vestron Video Collector’s Series titles—Return of the Living Dead 3 and C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud—that horror fans will undoubtedly want to add to their home media collections. And for all you William Friedkin fans out there, Shout Select has put together a stellar Collector’s Edition Blu-ray of To Live and Die in L.A. that is absolutely worth owning.

Full Release Details for Arrow Video’s C.H.U.D., The Initiation, and The Driller Killer Blu-rays

19 October 2016 9:18 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This November, Arrow Video offers horror fans a wide variety of thrills and onscreen kills with their respective Blu-ray releases of C.H.U.D., The Initiation, and The Driller Killer, and the full release details for all three Blu-rays have now been revealed.

Press Release: Mvd Entertainment Group furthers the distribution of Arrow Video in the Us with three great new titles in November. The month kicks off with The Initiation on Blu-ray, one of the best of the college-based slasher movies of the 1980s. One of the later entries into the genre, it had horror fans hooked with its tense stalk 'n' slash scenes and it's surprising twist of an ending.

The horror continues with C.H.U.D., the classic 80s horror featuring the Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers making their long-awaited debut on Blu-ray with a brand new restoration from original film elements.

Last but by no means least comes Arrow Video's »
