A 1600 word review of Scream Factory's Escape from New York Collector's Edition Blu-Ray. All of that to tell you to pick up this set!
Pick this up. No really, just do it. The quality is excellent, the movie is great, and the amount of special features on this double-disc set is enough to keep you Kurt Russell-ized for over 6 hours! Videophiles need not fear - those people decrying the quality of this release are just looking for things to complain about.

Checking out IDW's new series The Fly: Outbreak, with a review of issue #1. It's not bad, but the first issue isn't that memorable either besides some of menton3's artwork.
IDW's new series The Fly: Outbreak takes cues from the film series that inspired it, but the first issue from Brandon Seifert and menton3 feels more like an introductory mutation more than a full-blown transformation of the story for a new generation.

A massive review of both Carrie (2002 TV movie) and The Rage: Carrie 2, released in a double-feature set from Scream Factory! Carrie kind of blows, but The Rage is classic '90s horror, and this set is worth a look.
This collection of both the Carrie TV movie and The Rage: Carrie 2 is uneven, mostly because of the quality of the 2002 miniseries moreso than The Rage: Carrie 2. But if the reader doesn't own either of these, or wants to collect them on Blu-Ray, this is the way to go. It's sparse on special features but does include two new commentary tracks and what appears to be a 16:9 ratio, an upgrade from original 4:3.

Blind Woman's Curse captures the art of revenge with a black cat curse and a blind woman's rage, but its message about violence sticks through even the most surrealistic aspects of the film.
Blind Woman's Curse is an important slice of mobster/Yakuza cinema from Japan featuring a thrilling conclusion and some psychedelic surrealist scenes; it makes a statement about revenge during a tense showdown between the two foil characters. Arrow Video doesn't have a lot of special features for this release, but the audio commentary from Jasper Short is definitely worth it.

Horror Out of Context takes a look at horror found in different media genres. This time we're featuring the anime Hunter x Hunter with its scary Asian horror-influenced Palm.
Palm Siberia from Hunter x Hunter's 2011 anime adaptation is a character inspired by Asian horror cinema.

Invaders from Mars finds Tobe Hooper directing a film towards a children's audience, effectively creating an alien invasion movie that's both funny and imaginative. Scream Factory's Blu-Ray comes loaded with some great featurettes.
Invaders from Mars is an inventive remake of a sci-fi classic thanks to effective and intentional overacting from its actors and great alien designs thanks to Stan Winston's team. Scream Factory's Blu-Ray has a couple of great featurettes and some cool gallery inclusions. And if you've got kids, this Blu-Ray is a must.
