Journey to a FORBIDDEN WORLD in a GALAXY OF TERROR or Join the VICE SQUAD with Scream Factory's Newest Releases!


The worst part of being a collector of physical media is that there is always a better version of something you already own just around the corner. Case in point, Scream Factory's two latest Limited Edition Steelbook offerings of FORBIDDEN WORLD and GALAXY OF TERROR.

While some previous Scream steelbooks have included some new extras, these discs only offer up new 4K scans (2K in the case of FORBIDDEN WORLD'S Director's Cut!) of the films. If you're not in the mood to upgrade from what you already have, Scream Factory also dropped VICE SQUAD onto Blu-ray today with a new 4K restoration and tons of new extras!

Not sure about adding these new releases to your collection? Then let's take a closer look!


Synopsis: The seed is planted ... the nightmare grows. On planet Xarbia, an experimental life form known as "Subject 20" has been created by an elite group of scientists in hopes of preventing a major galactic food crisis. However, instead of prolonging life, Subject 20 is destroying it, and the organism poses a double threat because it constantly changes its genetic structure. Mike Colby, a bounty hunter, is called in to investigate. Suspecting that the scientists are keeping something from him, Colby soon discovers why ...

I'm not a gigantic fan of FORBIDDEN WORLD personally, BUT if I was I would snap this release up in a heartbeat. The new packing has gorgeous artwork, and though there aren't any new extras, the new transfers alone would be worth the upgrade in my eyes. If you feel the urge to double-dip on this one (which will cost you about $20), get it now from AMAZON, BULL MOOSE, DIABOLIK DVD, or directly from SHOUT! FACTORY, which will also get you a rolled lithograph of the new steelbook artwork. (While supplies last of course!)


Synopsis: The mind's innermost fears become reality for the crew members of the Quest when they land on a barren planet to rescue survivors from the starship Remus. The crew investigates a giant pyramid on the planet, hoping to find the missing crew members ... only to find something deadly waiting for them instead.

Each crew member must come face to face with their darkest fears or perish. The crew of the Quest includes Edward Albert (THE HOUSE WHERE EVIL DWELLS), Erin Moran (Happy Days), Ray Walston (POPCORN), Robert Englund (the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series), Zalman King (BLUE SUNSHINE), and Sid Haig (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS).

The film had its share of new, emerging talents behind the camera as well, including James Cameron, who did the production design, and Bill Paxton, who worked as a set decorator.

But when Ramrod escapes police custody, Princess is in grave danger. No matter which way she turns, Ramrod is coming for her. Walsh and the entire police force are out looking to catch him. Tonight, the neon slime will be on full display and the city of Los Angeles will explode with furious vengeance and violence!

Cover art for Arrow Video's Blu-ray of ALICE, SWEET ALICE!

Though things were briefly touch and go for a few weeks, Arrow Video succeeded in bringing Alfred Sole's oft-overlooked ALICE, SWEET ALICE to Blu-ray for the first time, and it is a fantastic release! Also out today is Studiocanal's 4-Disc Collector's Edition of Nicholas Roeg's DON'T LOOK NOW, which includes a 4K Ultra High-Def Blu-ray disc and soundtrack CD! Both releases boast a TON of extras and are guaranteed must-haves - let's take a closer look, shall we?


Synopsis: A young Brooke Shields meets an untimely end in this religious-themed proto slasher par excellence from director Alfred Sole.

On the day of her first communion, young Karen (Brooke Shields) is savagely murdered by an unknown assailant in a yellow rain mac and creepy translucent mask. But the nightmare is far from over. As the knife-wielding maniac strikes again and again, Karen's bereaved parents are forced to confront the possibility that Karen's wayward sister Alice might be the one behind the mask.

Bearing influences from the likes of Hitchcock, the then-booming Italian giallo film and more specifically, Nicolas Roeg's DON'T LOOK NOW, ALICE, SWEET ALICE is an absolutely essential – if often overlooked – entry in the canon of 1970s American horror.

Disc Specs:
Rated R | Color | 107 minutes | Region A

Cover of Studiocanal's Collector's Edition of DON'T LOOK NOW!

Synopsis: Starring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, this is a brilliant adaptation of a Daphne Du Maurier short story. On a cold, bright autumn day in Suffolk, England, a little girl in a red mackintosh drowns in a pond – the daughter of John and Laura Baxter. Trying to recover from the tragedy, the couple arrive in Venice, Italy, where John has been commissioned to restore a church.

In the eerie atmosphere of the lagoon city in winter, they encounter two strange sisters. Laura is suddenly released from her grief when one of them, a blind psychic, tells her that she is in contact with her dead daughter. Angered and skeptical, John carries on with his work, but witnesses an unsettling vision of his own: a little girl in a red mackintosh disappearing into the Venetian alleys.

As Venice and his fate closes in on John, illusion, reality and sudden terror spiral the story to its grotesque climax, as the design in director Nicolas Roeg’s mosaic becomes unforgettably clear.

STOCK YOUR VAULT: New DVDs & Blu-rays for 07/30/2019!

Vault Master's Pick of the Week!

Greetings Vault Dwellers! As we say goodbye to July 2019 (damn these Summer days are just flying by, aren't they?) we get a really fond farewell from several of our favorite genre labels.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics brings the Vic Morrow vehicle TARGET: HARRY to DVD & Blu-ray disc, Well Go USA takes us to THE ISLAND, Warner Archive brings WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? to Blu-ray, and Arrow Video UK gives SCHRAMM a new (Region B locked) Limited Edition release.

Vinegar Syndrome has a really strong lineup this week featuring four titles I am completely unfamiliar with (which is never a bad thing), including MASCARA, THE PINK LADIES, PLAY DEAD, and HELLMASTER. But that all pales in comparison to Scream Factory's newest additions to their impossibly huge catalog.

The Roger Corman-produced HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP received a new Limited Edition Steelbook that boasts a new 4K transfer and the oft-overlooked classic THE LEOPARD MAN comes to Blu-ray with a new 4K scan (from the original nitrate film print!) and extras! Four Hammer Horror classics also received the royal treatment from Scream Factory, namely LUST FOR A VAMPIRE, QUATERMASS II, QUATERMASS AND THE PIT, and THE REPTILE!

There's also a slew of cult and exploitation double feature DVDs out now from Frolic Features, plus a small number of new titles on DVD and Blu-ray disc. To see the full roster, be sure to keep scrolling!

Synopsis: Hobbs End, Knightsbridge, London. While working on a new subway tunnel for the London Underground, a group of construction workers uncover a strangely shaped skull. Nearby, another discovery: a large, mysterious and impenetrable metal object.

Initially mistaken for an unexploded bomb, the object and its strange power turn out to be far more horrific than anybody could have possibly imagined. Is it of this earth? Could it be the ancestral link to mankind's evolution? Or could it be an ancient link to the unleashing of the ultimate evil?

There's only one man capable of unraveling the clues, and his name is Professor Bernard Quatermass (Andrew Keir), a man of science who thrives on the dark mysteries of the world ...

Written by legendary screenwriter Nigel Kneale, QUATERMASS AND THE PIT is a seminal British sci-fi classic. For its U.S. release by 20th Century Fox, the film was retitled FIVE MILLION YEARS TO EARTH.

Professor Quatermass, played by Hollywood veteran Brian Donlevy (reprising his role from THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT) is Britain's most clever scientist. Investigating a series of bizarre incidents that have been reported from a deserted area, he finds a group of soldiers and government officials that appear to be controlled by aliens from another world.

When a close friend is brutally murdered by these beings, Quatermass leads a mob of local workers to a showdown with the extraterrestrials. The film was retitled ENEMY FROM SPACE for its U.S. theatrical release.

After his brother falls prey to the "black death," Harry Spalding (Ray Barrett - TERROR FROM UNDER THE HOUSE) travels with his new wife (Jennifer Daniel - THE KISS OF THE VAMPIRE) to Clagmoor to investigate his sibling's mysterious death.

With little help from the unfriendly locals, Harry follows a trail of clues that leads him to the sinister Dr. Franklyn (Noel Willman - THE VENGEANCE OF SHE), the doctor's strange, but beautiful daughter (Jacqueline Pearce - Doctor Who) ... and a horrific family secret.
