STOCK YOUR VAULT: New Blu-rays & 4K Discs for 01/10 - 01/24/23!

The B-Movie News Vault's Stock Your Vault Logo!
Vault Master's Pick of the Week(s)!

Hello there fellow collectors and welcome to another edition of our handy STOCK YOUR VAULT column! As was the case with the last post, we're tripling up because there are so few titles of interest in the first month of the year! But that doesn't mean there aren't a bunch of cool discs that will have you scrambling to click those order buttons on Amazon and other retailer sites!

January 10th wasn't too shabby and gave us Arrow Video's new Blu-ray releases of THE DUNWICH HORROR (starring Dean Stockwell) and THE EXECUTIONER COLLECTION (a two-film set featuring the late Sonny Chiba!), Sony's new 4K UHD of the beloved Bill Murray comedy GROUNDHOG DAY, and Scream Factory's new 4K release of OUIJA.

The following week was once again light on new releases but boasted Paramount's new 4K steelbook of CLOVERFIELD, Arrow Video's 2-disc double feature of LADY WHIRLWIND & HAPKIDO, and Scream Factory's limited edition 4K steelbook of John Carpenter's (still very relevant) sci-fi classic THEY LIVE! I should also note that Kino Lorber Studio Classics dropped PROGRAMMED TO KILL (aka THE RETALIATOR), as well as a Blu-ray set of Cannon's classic MISSING IN ACTION TRILOGY!

Finally, this week fares a bit better with a larger mix of titles from many of our favorite labels: Kino Lorber Studio Classics gives iconic Charles Bronson revenge flick DEATH WISH its 4K debut, Shout Select brings seven martial arts classics to Blu-ray in the new JACKIE CHAN COLLECTION: VOLUME I, and MVD Rewind Collection adds MEN AT WORK to their Blu-ray catalog! Ronin Flix brings NIGHTMARE MAN to Blu-ray for the first time ever, and Scream Factory adds another modern Horror title to their 4K collection, namely the surprisingly fun FREAKY!

But I'm giving the mantle of "Pick of the Week" to Lionsgate's latest addition to their Vestron Video Collector's Series, namely THE DENTIST COLLECTION! Starring the fantastic Corbin Bersen as the titular villain of these two direct-to-video Horror essentials, this new set offers up new transfers of the films and lots of cool extras, such as feature-length commentaries with director Brian Yuzna and special f/x supervistor Anthony C. Ferrante, isolated score tracks with commentary by Alan Howarth, trailers, cast & crew interviews, and more!

Scroll down to see what came out over the past three weeks, and maybe add a few new discs to your already overflowing shelves with whatever leftover holiday gift cards and cash you have left!
