Here are some of the horror DVD/Blu-Ray releases for March 10!
“Gory” – TV Guide “Crazy” – The Terror Trap “Beautiful” – Cinemafantastique An alien creature has been waiting millions of years for a chance to breed, and its time has finally come when a group of space explorers unwittingly lands on its home planet. The 12-member crew is investigating for possible origins for the planet’s vanished civilization. Instead, they awaken the planet’s creature and discover that the horror to come is more terrifying than any nightmare that they could ever imagine!
“BUG is the stuff of nightmares indeed …” – Debi Moore, Dread Central Legendary horror writer/producer/director William Castle (The Tingler, Strait-Jacket, Rosemary’s Baby) presents a creeping, crawling film nightmare that will have you screaming and squirming with fright! A massive earth tremor opens a crevasse in the California desert, releasing a plague of bizarre, fiery, foot-long cockroaches. With their numbers multiplying and the death toll mounting, obsessive entomologist James Parmiter (Bradford Dillman, Piranha, The Swarm) desperately seeks a way to eliminate the seemingly indestructible critters before they spread clear across the country … and beyond! Joanna Miles (The Dark Secret Of Harvest Home) and Patty McCormack (The Bad Seed) are among the terrorized cast in this suspenseful screamfest directed by Jeannot Szwarc (Jaws 2).
Fleeing from the grasp of a possessed woman, a distressed cabdriver begins a confession in a rundown police station that endangers everyone who crosses her path. Shot entirely on 16mm and featuring a hypnotic synth-driven score, this first-time feature film from director Tilman Singer pays homage to the Euro Horror sensibilities of Andrzej Żuławski’s Possession while subverting and re-inventing the genre along with contemporaries like Panos Cosmatos (Mandy).
After spending three years in prison for the death of an 8-year-old during a failed exorcism, Father Lambert seeks redemption on a young widower, Joel Clarke, who believes his son has been marked by the Devil himself. Conjuring “deliverance” (unsanctioned exorcisms), Lambert convinces Joel that without his help, he will lose his son forever. It’s a race against time for the soul of a little boy that culminates with a shocking revelation that will leave you questioning how deep is the darkness is inside us all. Starring Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim, Warcraft, “True Blood”) and Peter Jason (Escape from LA, Mortal Kombat, Jurassic World).
