Blue Underground will be releasing Hell of the Living Dead (1980) and Rats - Night of Terror (1984) on a combo pack Blu-ray disc. We have some time with a later this 2014 year release date, more details as they are released. The Blu-ray cover art looks great and stylized. Hell of the Dead is directed by Bruno Mattei (The Other Hell) and is an Italian classic horror movie. Rats - Night of Terror is another horror film directed by Bruno Mattei. Both horror movies are extremely gory and gut wrenching films. I remember the first time I saw Rats - Night of Terror, I remember thinking that the film was horrible but it did scare me with a natural real horror sensation. I grew up in New York and those rats in the subways are not to be played with, FYI, there is no longer this problem in the subways and most claims are exaggerated now. More information on each horror movie added below.
Scream Factory’s 2014 “Summer of Fear” is fast approaching and now they are adding The Final Fear to the horror movie releases. The Final Fear will be released this upcoming July 2014. There is currently no details on the special features but expect to hear more as the release date nears closer.
Victor Salva‘s (Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral) Dark House will be hitting Blu-ray this upcoming March 11, 2014. The Blu-ray will feature Behind-the-Scenes footage but that is all. Dark House stars Tobin Bell, Leslie Down, Luke Kleintank and Anthony Rey Perez. No additional word yet on the Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral release date yet but it can not be long now with his latest horror movie released.
Joseph O’Brien’s Devil’s Mile was recently picked up by Phase 4 Films and now has a new poster created by Justin Erickson. Devil’s Mile is a Lovecraftian supernatural horror so I definitely have to see this horror film. Devil’s Mile stars Maria Del Mar, Casey Hudecki, David Hayter and Samantha Wan. The new horror film is scheduled for a summer release date not yet defined.
NBC’s Hannibal Season 2 now has a new poster for your viewing pleasure. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is in the latest photo in the classic cannibal safety mask and strapped up as the iconical Dr. Hannibal Lecter (originally played by Anthony Hopkins, now played by Mads Mikkelsen) was. Look for the premiere of NBC’s Hannibal TV series this upcoming Friday, February 28, 2014.
Brandon Slagle’s Dead Sea DVD will be hitting stores this upcoming April 15, 2014. I have to admit that I am looking forward to seeing this sea monster horror movie out of pure curiosity. I saw the movie trailer and the creature feature horror movie did show some great potential. Dead Sea stars Alexis Iacono, Britt Griffith, Jw Wiseman, Devanny Pinn and James Duval.
You can catch up with Bates Motel season 1 on Netflix. I was a little caught off guard by season 1 being so good so I am definitely on board to see A&E’s Bates Motel Season 2. Take a look at the new poster below. In the latest Bates Motel TV series season 2, Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) obsesses on Miss Watson’s death. Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) past comes back to haunt her as her brother joins the story, yes that brother if you finished season 1. Dylan Bates (Max Thieriot) spirals deeper into the drug underworld. This season should hopefully trump last season, high hopes.
