Back in 1982 a notorious little flick made its debut.  THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD tells the tale of a group of kids helping to shut down a college dormitory who find themselves the victims of a deranged stalker who utilizes his sick mind and the interesting things laying around to one by one stalk and kill the youngsters.

Missed MONSTERS during it VOD run so I've been looking forward to getting this news.  MAGNOLIA has announced the date and specs for its home video release of MONSTERS and as they tend to do, they are doing it right.

MONSTERS will be coming at us in a stand alone 1 disc DVD, a 2 disc DVD featuring a digital copy of my personal favorite, Blu-ray.

The press release doesn't specify but I'm thinking the single disc will be bare bones, feature only but the 2 disc and Blu-ray will come with the following:

- Production on Set featurette
- Editing featurette
- Visual Effects featurette
- Deleted and extended scenes
- Interviews
- HDNet: A Look at Monsters
- Comic Con NYC with Gareth Edwards
- Factory Farmed" short film with intro from Gareth Edwards
- Digital copy of the film


A pretty hefty slate of extras. 

In case you haven't been paying attention, here's a breakdown of what MONSTERS is all about:

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life form began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"...... Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.

BURIED Gets Dug Up In Jan.

Gotta love this age of the "limited theatrical run".  I swear, I just don't understand the point or use.  We've been talking about BURIED since Sundance when it made a bunch of noise at the festival.  We then eagerly awaited its theatrical release only to have it come out in about 3 theaters for about a day and a half.  I just don't get it.  They must have a reason.

Regardless, LIONSGATE sent out a press release announcing the Blu-ray/DVD release on Jan. 18th and it's going to be one of those combo packs which I personally love to get.

I like having all the formats in one nice little package.

Here's all the info straight from the press release:

Ninety minutes to save his life.  Experience the claustrophobic thriller, Buried, as Lionsgate brings the film to Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack (two discs including Blu-ray and DVD), Digital Download and On Demand. An Official Selection and favorite at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, the film garnered critical acclaim across all media.  Ryan Reynolds delivers a tour-de-force performance (Access Hollywood), as Paul Conroy, an American contractor in Iraq faced with an impossible situation.  The Blu-ray Combo Pack contains the special feature Unearthing Buried, a making of featurette.  An unbelievable ride of emotions, Buried is certain to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

 

Paul Conroy (Reynolds) is not ready to die.  Beaten and buried in a wooden box by Iraqi insurgents who attacked his civilian convoy, Conroy is left with only a cell phone, a lighter and 90 minutes to save his own life.  He has only the voice of his kidnapper to help him piece together clues that could lead an elite team of special agents to his location and time is not on his side.  Fighting despair, panic and delirium, Conroy focuses on his only link to the outside world, a cell phone with poor reception and a rapidly draining battery - to keep himself alive for himself and his family back home. 

Pricing: Blu-ray Combo Pack $29.95 (Blu-ray Disc plus DVD)


Maybe this one will find it's audience finally.  I know I for one am looking forward to finally getting to see it.

HATCHET II Coming To VOD in Just Two Days

In a bit of a surprise move tonight DARK SKY FILMS has announced that on Dec. 1st. they will be making Adam Green's HATCHET II available on VOD to Time Warner and Comcast customers.  That's the day after tomorrow! 

Not a lot of folks have seen this one yet.  To refresh you memory, HATCHET II was the first indie horror film in over 25 years to be picked up by a major movie chain, without a rating.  It only played for a couple of days but still.

Because of that amazingly short run only a handful of folks got to check the flick out but that will change, at least for those of us with TIME WARNER or COMCAST.

Here's the complete press release that explains it all:

It's the horror that they didn't want you to see the film that spurred a media storm of controversy. Today, Dark Sky Films announced that Adam Green's HATCHET II will be available on Video on Demand on December 1, 2010. The first unrated independent horror film to be exhibited by a major theater chain in more than 25 years, only to be yanked from screens almost immediately, HATCHET II will be shown on VOD on Time Warner and Comcast systems in its original unrated and uncensored cut. 

 
HATCHET II  a Dark Sky Films production written and directed by Adam Green, creator of 2007's hit Hatchet  was set to a fall breakout release. AMC Theatres booked screens in top U.S. markets, while Green and other iconic cast members scheduled simultaneous midnight and opening weekend appearances at theaters around the country.  In response to the intense and vocal demand of fans, the much-anticipated sequel opened at special midnight screenings on Friday, October 1, 2010. 
 
Despite being hailed and one of the best slasher films ever, the film was pulled from all theaters following, or during opening weekend leaving many to speculate if this highly unusual action was due to the ensuing controversy swirling around the film being released unrated in mainstream cinemas.
 
Outraged horror fans and supporters of independent cinema instantly began a campaign via the Internet, Twitter, Facebook and other outlets to have the film released. Dark Sky Films immediately moved into action, working feverishly to bring HATCHET II to fans in its complete, uncompromised version  the way the film was meant to be seen. The movie will be available as Video on Demand on Comcast  and Time Warner systems on December 1, 2010.

A ferociously fun tribute to the old-school horror sensation slasher movies of the 80's, HATCHET II is the follow-up to the popular original film, which was released theatrically in 2007 and became a sleeper-hit, gaining a wide following on DVD.  Just as the 80's had their signature murderous maniacs, HALLOWEEN's Michael Myers of Haddonfield and FRIDAY THE 13th's  Jason Voorhees of Camp Crystal Lake the original HATCHET marked the arrival of the latest and most lethal of the genre's stalking murderers: Victor Crowley, a crazed backwoods killer stalking the bayous of New Orleans.  

HATCHET II picks up right where the 2007 original film ends, as Marybeth (Danielle Harris from HALLOWEEN) escapes from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder from FRIDAY THE 13th). Marybeth returns to the Louisiana swamps along with an army of hunters to recover the bodies of her family and exact her revenge against Victor Crowley. The film also stars other genre icons including Tony Todd, Tom Holland and well known names including Parry Shen, AJ Bowen and others.
