You Will Utter a PRIMAL SCREAM During the CHAOS of THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION!


DARK FORCE ENTERTAINMENT JUST RELEASED THREE NEW TITLES TO BLU-RAY FEATURING FUZZY EIGHT-LEGGED VOLKSWAGENS, DEADLY SPACE FUEL, AND A RIP-OFF OF "LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT!"

I'm more or less interested in two of these new Dark Force Entertainment releases Vault Dwellers: THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION (which was released on Blu-ray by VCI years ago and loaded with cool extras... that aren't on this release) and PRIMAL SCREAM, which is making its Blu-ray debut! As for CHAOS (which is based on "an original idea" by David DeFalco and Steven Jay Bernheim. HA!)... I already own LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT so I don't really need this pale imitation of Wes Craven's notorious film.

If any of these three titles have managed to pique your curiosity, then please continue onward to learn more about this trio of new Dark Force Entertainment Blu-rays fellow collectors of physical media!

While it may have a better transfer than VCI's previous release (which was featured in the original 1.85:1 aspect ratio), Dark Force's disc lacks the great extras that populated VCI's 3-disc release! But seeing as how that set is currently out of print, this disc is the only way to watch Bill Rebane's notorious feature film, which had the distinct honor of appearing on one of the funniest episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000! THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION costs between $18 - $22, and can be obtained from AMAZON, BULL MOOSE, or DIABOLIK DVD!
