STOCK YOUR VAULT: New Blu-rays & 4K Discs for 01/30/24!

Vault Master's Pick of the Week!

Hey gang! I'm back with another weekly dose of Blu-ray & 4K releases! But before I get into the good stuff, I just want to announce that Arrow Video's Limited Edition THE CONAN CHRONICLES 2-Film set has been pushed back until February 20th! However, the standalone Limited Edition releases of both CONAN THE BARBARIAN and its sequel (on both 4K & Blu-ray) are available to own right this very minute!

The final week of January 2024 was absolutely loaded with great releases from all of your favorite boutique labels - so if you are trying not to spend money on new discs, I urge you to look away now! Haha!

Severin Films kicks things into high gear with 4K releases of Frank Henenlotter's BAD BIOLOGY, NIGHTMARETHE PSYCHIC, and their multi-film DANZA MACABRA: VOLUME 2 boxed set which features CASTLE OF BLOOD, JEKYLL, THEY HAVE CHANGED THEIR FACE, and THE DEVIL'S LOVER!

Vinegar Syndrome's 4K UHDs of D.A.R.Y.L., eXistenZ, FATAL GAMES, and THE PROPHECY trilogy are now available, CUTTING CLASS arrives on 4K UHD for the first time thanks to MVD, and Deaf Crocodile's new restoration of the Czech film THE MYSTERIOUS CASTLE IN THE CARPATHIANS has arrived on Blu-ray disc! And, as stated above, Arrow Video's CONAN THE BARBARIAN and CONAN THE DESTROYER are now available as well, in gorgeous limited editions!

Numerous Vinegar Syndrome partner label titles hit the mainstream today as well, including Degausser Video's REDNECK ZOMBIES (one of my all-time favorite shot-on-video gems), Umbrella Entertainment's bonkers Ozploitation classic SONS OF STEEL, AGFA's TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE and THE VIOLENT YEARS, SCRAPBOOK (from Saturn's Core), and many more! I should also mention that Eli Roth's surprisingly fun THANKSGIVING is also out on Blu-ray this week, courtesy of Sony Pictures!

As you can see, there's a lot to love this week, but (seeing as how Arrow fumbled the ball) the coveted title of "Pick of the Week" goes to Kino Lorber Studio Classics' new Special Edition of THE BOOGENS! Lovingly restored in 4K, the film gets two audio commentaries, a featurette with creature creator William Munns, multiple trailers, and reversible cover art (and slipcover)! Not too shabby for what was once a forgotten film!

As always, there are numerous titles I didn't mention, so be sure to scroll down through the list below to take in the pure majesty of this week's slate of new Blu-ray and 4K discs!
