New DVDs & Blu-rays for 12/15/2015!

Hey gang! It's been a busy couple of weeks for yours truly, so forgive me if the news and content have been very light around the corridors of the B-Movie Film Vault and News Vault. I've been fighting a rather nasty cold, and was lucky enough to keep it at bay to go to Hudson Horror Show this past Saturday (event coverage coming soon)!

And... HOLY CRAP! Christmas is next week! Better start shopping for that fan of cult, horror, and exploitation cinema that you (unfortunately) share a living space with! This week we get three cool titles from the overlords at Scream Factory, namely THE CAR, ZOMBIE HIGH, and a cheesy (but awesome) double feature of THE DUNGEONMASTER & THE ELIMINATORS!

Arrow Films has released their highly anticipated 3-Disc Limited Edition of BLOOD RAGE, as well as a nice 2-disc Special Edition of WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE? Troma has just put out a new Blu-ray set of its flagship TOXIC AVENGER series at a pretty reasonable price, and Severin Films has released COUNT DRACULA (starring Christopher Lee) and a double feature of AXE & KIDNAPPED.

There's also plenty of mainstream titles of interest, such as TED 2, as well as the new MAZE RUNNER and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE sequels!

Full specs & extras for Scream Factory's THE GUARDIAN Blu-ray!


Confession time: I've never seen THE GUARDIAN before. (I've got to get some points for owning Friedkin's SORCERER on Blu-ray right?) It's been on my list for a long time, and now I'll definitely have to pick it up because it's now part of Scream Factory's growing catalog!

Film Synopsis: In his first horror film since THE EXORCIST, Oscar-winning director William Friedkin spins a terrifying tale based on every parent's worst fear.

Jenny Seagrove portrays the enchanting guardian who enters the home of new parents Phil (Dwier Brown) and Kate (Carey Lowell) possessing impeccable references and an affinity for children. But as her true intentions are revealed, the battle for the child's soul begins in this chilling film based on Dan Greenburg's popular novel, "The Nanny."

Foil Variant.

The guys from Grey Matter Art will be peddling some of their beautiful posters at HUDSON HORROR SHOW 12 next Saturday in Poughkeepsie, NY,!

2015 is winding down and Christmas is rapidly approaching! That means its time to buy something for that special person in your life who is into wild & weird cinema! It's also time to start building your own holiday wishlist, so allow me to help out a bit by introducing you all to this week's new DVDs and Blu-rays!

And if you're into collecting seasons of your favorite TV shows, you have plenty to choose from. The first seasons of ZOO, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, and THE FLASH (w/ figurine) are now available!
