Scream Factory Brings THE MOLE PEOPLE, THE VENGEANCE OF SHE, and the WILLARD Redo to Blu-ray!


Scream Factory's 2019 lineup of new Blu-ray releases has been stellar, and this week is no exception! Universal's lesser classic THE MOLE PEOPLE, Hammer's Fantasy-Adventure THE VENGEANCE OF SHE, and the 2003 redo of WILLARD have just been released with lots of cool extras and gorgeous HD transfers!

I for one am very excited for these new discs, and can't wait to add them to my collection! For more details on each Blu-ray release, please continue onward!


Synopsis: John Agar (ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE), Hugh Beaumont (Leave It To Beaver) and Nestor Paiva (Creature From The Black Lagoon) star as three archaeologists who come upon an unusual race of albino beings who shun all forms of light and have mutant mole men as their slaves.

Because of their "magical cylinders of fire" (what we know as flashlights), these archaeologists are treated like gods – until they try to liberate the mole people. Can the archaeologists escape this hallowed mountain in Asia ... or will they be destroyed in a strange underground world?
