Running Time: 93 minutes
Ben & Jerry have strong competition as a luscious new dessert hits the stores and is taking supermarket shelves by storm. But just what does this mysterious goo, secretly oozing from the Earth, offer those munching on its sugary goodness?
Coming courtesy of cult horror auteur Larry Cohen, the legendary figure schooled in the low-budget Roger Corman form of quick filmmaking, The Stuff is one of those unique creature-features impossible not to like despite it’s cheap cheekiness. Inspired by the 1950s hits like The Blob and featuring an absurd premise taking an obvious pot shot at consumerism, corporate greed and environmental abuse, The Stuff is as intoxicating as its delicious product suggests because of the cast. Particularly Cohen regular Michael Moriarty as the swaggering industrial saboteur David “Mo” Rutherford. He’s »

Are you a fan of Larry Cohen’s subversively wacko 1985 killer yogurt flick The Stuff and have been dying for it to get a Blu-ray release? There’s good news for you, but only if you’re British or have a region-free Blu-ray player.
For our friends across the pond and the fiends here at home with region-free capabilities that can’t get enough of The Stuff, the one-of-a-kind deadly dessert social satire is bowing on Blu-ray March 10th courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

Earlier this week, 'Cassadaga,' the new feature film from director Anthony Diblasi was released on DVD just under the radar. However, it's a new horror film that absolutely should be on your radar. Why? Not only did I name it one of my Top 10 horror films of 2013, but it's a truly unique genre film that combines a tradition ghost story with a serial killer named "Geppetto," who literally pulls his victims apart limb from limb just to put them back together as a human marionette. It stars Kelen Coleman, 'True Blood's Kevin Alejandro & if you're playing close attention, you'll also spot genre vet J. Larose ('Insidious,' 'Saw III') in there too. There's a lot of weird & wild stuff in the flick, so you need to find it and check it out Asap. (It's also available on VOD right now.)
Here's a fun treat. »

Insidious Chapter 2 comes to DVD, Blu-ray and Twin Pack on 6th January. To win all the aforementioned goodies, just answer the following question:
