Halloween may be over, but that doesn’t mean we’ve run out of new releases to share with you. Here are the new releases for November 4th, 2014.
(Technically this is a November 3rd release but I thought I would include it on this list.)
A little girl’s brother kills the whole family but her (she escapes by hiding in the basement). He is committed, and she grows up with a new family, eventually going to college, where she joins a sorority. Due to a memory block, she doesn’t remember that the sorority house was her childhood house. Her brother senses her presence in the house and escapes so he can finish the job he was unable to complete. (Source)

While fans of Scream Factory can typically rejoice in their continual output of cult and fan-favorites, every once in a while the Sf gang put out a genre film that has either been long lost or forgotten about and it switches things up for the better. We all want to have great collector’s editions of They Live, Prince Of Darkness, Candyman 2 and various other titles, but when the Scream Factory crew put out films like The Legend Of Hell House or The Vampire Lovers, we, as horror fans, are blessed with classic horror films brought to HD life, and with interesting and thoroughly entertaining special features. Such is the case with Sf’s brand new Bluray release of the 1985 grave-robbing gem, The Doctor And The Devils. Not only is the film a great addition to any Scream Factory collector’s library, it’s a perfect addition to Any film library. »

October may be over, but that doesn’t mean horror and sci-fi fans don’t have anything to look forward to this month. November 4th will see the release of Brett Ratner’s Hercules 3D and a few cult classics, including The Doctor and the Devils and The Ninth Configuration. There are also several indie horror movies making their debut this week, including The Taking of Deborah Logan, Ghost Bride and Dead Girls.
And for those of you looking to add a few Blu-ray collections to your home library, Amazon is releasing an exclusive set in honor of Stanley Kubrick (which looks stellar) and there’s also a new Doctor Who box set to look forward to as well.

Freddie Francis was legendary for directing genre greats such as Tales From The Crypt, Dr. Terror’S House Of Horrors, The Evil Of Frankenstein and many more films that horror fans hold close to their hearts, and now Scream Factory is set to bring another Francis gem, the Mel Brooks-produced The Doctor And The Devils to Bluray on November 14th. I’ve always loved liked the film, it’s full of great performances by former Bond actor Timothy Dalton, Jonathan Pryce and Stephen Rea.
While it’s not a part of the “Collector’s Editions” releases, it still has a couple of goodies for fans of the film, including a commentary and a bran new set of interviews with people involved. Scream Factory’s recent Bluray release of The Legend Of Hell House looked great, so it’s probably safe to say that the team will treat the transfer »

Two grave robbers supply dead bodies to anatomists in 1820’s Edinburgh, but when the delivered bodies appear to be too fresh, one of the scientists suspects with mounting horror that their cadavers are not coming from coffins in 1985’s The Doctor and the Devils. Scream Factory is bringing this tale of morbid obsession and deadly dealings to Blu-ray, and we have a look at the cover art and list of bonus features.

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!
First up, the world's greatest distribution company announced on their Facebook page that they're bringing three titles to Blu-ray for the very first time this coming fall, kicking off with a double feature release of 1972's Tales from the Crypt and 1973's The Vault of Horror.
The two classic British anthology films will be housed together as a double feature on Blu-ray (both for the first time) and Vault will be presented in its uncut form.
No dates have been set in stone, but both discs will arrive sometime in the fall.

Before the TV show of the same name came out in 1989, there was the Tales from the Crypt movie. Released in 1972, this British anthology horror film explored multiple matters of the macabre, from a Christmas Eve killer to a Chinese figurine that grants three wishes, and also featured the legendary Peter Cushing in one of its tales.
A sequel to Tales from the Crypt, titled Vault of Horror, came out in 1973 and Scream Factory has announced plans to release both of these horror anthologies as a double feature Blu-ray later this year.
Appearing on Blu-ray for the first time, the Tales from the Crypt/Vault of Horror double feature is set to be released sometime this fall. Scream Factory also announced that they will release 1985′s The Doctor and the Devils, a gothic thriller centered on grave robbers, on Blu-ray for the first time this fall, as well:

So the phone rings, and I answer it, and it's Mel Brooks. That's an actual thing that happened. That's now something I can say. And even better, the 40 minute conversation that followed me answering the phone is one of my favorites in recent memory. How often do you get to talk to a comedy legend about one of the pinnacle moments of not only their career, but of film comedy in general? I was told I'd have about 15 minutes originally. Time was tight. And if you get offered 15 minutes to talk to Mel Brooks about "Blazing Saddles," you take it, right? We ended up having a really fun back and forth about that film, about films he's produced, about his partnership with Gene Wilder, and about the ways Hollywood failed the great Richard Pryor. The only reason we wrapped it up is because we had to, and it would have »
