STOCK YOUR VAULT: New DVDs & Blu-rays for 11/14/2017!



Vault Master's Pick of the Week!
Greetings my devoted Vault Dwellers, and fellow collectors of physical media! This week is pretty light on new genre releases, BUT what it lacks in quantity, it surely makes up for it in quality!

Arrow Video unveiled their mighty impressive GEORGE A. ROMERO: BETWEEN NIGHT AND DAWN boxed set (full details HERE), gave J.D.'S REVENGE a nice 2-disc special edition, and gifted steelbook collectors with a new Limited Edition release of Clive Barker's HELLRAISER!

Norman Bates fans will be happy to know that the entirety of the PSYCHO series is now in a Blu-ray set from Universal. Sadly the sequels seem to be bare bones, so if you have the coin, you may want to spring for those pricier Scream Factory discs!

Additionally, Kino Classics brings NIGHTKILL to Blu-ray, AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING finally sees the light of day, and Shout Select gives the Collector's Edition treatment to THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN!

Also delivering the goods this week is Scream Factory, with their new Blu-ray release of ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE, as well as their awesome new Paul Naschy boxed set! It's rather impressive, and comes with dual audio options, and a good number of extras. You can read more about it HERE.

Shout! Factory and its sister labels have been releasing a lot of cool stuff lately, and these two titles are no exception. I've never seen either film before, but I look forward to scoping out the lilliputian adventures contained within in these two new Blu-ray releases!

ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE (1958)

Synopsis: "She's a living doll!" changes from a flattering expression to a terrifying reality when a certifiably deranged maniac creates a shocking device that shrinks people to foot-high figurines!

Mr. Franz is a kindly, old, silver-haired doll-maker ... who turns people into living puppets! He then forces his human re-inventions to put on parties and sing to him! But one day, tired of being toyed with, the puppets launch an attack, and suddenly Mr. Franz finds he'd better stop playing – and start praying – because the miniature moppets are hell-bent on revenge!

Directed by cult filmmaker Bert I. Gordon (EMPIRE OF THE ANTS, THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN), the film features an all-star cult movie cast including John Agar (NIGTHBREED, THE MOLE PEOPLE, THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS), John Hoyt (WHEN WORLD'S COLLIDE) and Susan Gordon (PICTURE MOMMY DEAD).

THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN (1981)

Synopsis: She was an ordinary housewife who gave so much … and got so little.

Comedy legend Lily Tomlin stars in the effervescent 1981 comedy THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN. Exposed to a heady mix of household chemicals, Pat Kramer (Tomlin) contracts a strange side effect: She begins to shrink!

Baffling doctors, Pat's diminishing size starts to really bring her down … until her story captures the hearts of the American people and the attention of a sinister group of scientists bent on world domination. Getting out of this predicament while still taking care of her family will be no small feat!

Also starring Charles Grodin (MIDNIGHT RUN), Ned Beatty (DELIVERANCE, Homicide: Life On The Street), and Tomlin's fellow Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In alumnus Henry Gibson, and featuring makeup master Rick Baker (STAR WARS, KING KONG) as Sidney the gorilla, THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN is a smart little comedy with big laughs.

Agreeing to an experimental operation on his ravaged body, Westlake is flung into a vicious game of survival for himself, his priceless research and the lives of two innocent people. One false move and he will be locked into darkness forever.

DICK MAAS' PAIR OF KILLER ELEVATOR FLICKS COME TO BLU-RAY FROM BLUE UNDERGROUND!

I've been meaning to see THE LIFT, ever since I read a review for it over at BadMovies.Org so many years ago! And now that I can watch it in glorious high-definition, along with its remake, I can't even begin to explain how oddly excited I am at the prospect of finally watching both films! Curious? Then read on to get the full details on this Dick Maas' double feature!

THE LIFT (1983)

Synopsis: There is something very wrong with the elevator in a stylish office high-rise. The passengers never end up on the floor of their choice. They end up dead! When Felix, an inquisitive repairman, investigates the faulty deathtrap, he discovers that something other than malfunctioning machinery is to blame. Some dark, distorted power has gained control of the elevator for its own evil design. After his horrifying discovery is given the shaft by the authorities, he joins a nosy female journalist to battle the unholy force inside THE LIFT!

Huub Stapel (AMSTERDAMNED) and Willeke van Ammelrooy (ANTONIA'S LINE) star in this chilling cult classic from Writer/Director Dick Maas (SAINT), who also composed the score and later helmed the 2001 English-language remake, DOWN (aka THE SHAFT).

DOWN (A.K.A. THE SHAFT - 2001)

Synopsis: When the express elevators in New York City's 102-story Millennium Building start to malfunction, elevator mechanics Mark (James Marshall of TWIN PEAKS) and Jeff (Eric Thal of THE PUPPET MASTERS) are sent to find the cause. After a series of gruesome and deadly accidents occur, Mark joins forces with spunky reporter Jennifer (Naomi Watts of THE RING), who's on the hunt for a juicy story.

As the death toll rises and the building is sealed off amid claims of terrorism, Mark and Jennifer attempt to unravel the horrifying secret behind the mysterious behavior of the bloodthirsty lift before it takes them and the entire city DOWN!

Michael Ironside (SCANNERS), Edward Herrmann (THE LOST BOYS), Dan Hedaya (COMMANDO), and Ron Perlman (HELLBOY) co-star in this big-budget remake of THE LIFT helmed by original Writer/Director Dick Maas (AMSTERDAMNED).
