This week we do not have the interview we were talking about last week and I give some explanation why. It was damn near impossible to ever happen, but I gave it a shot. I lost. Anyway, we have a go at Blue Underground’s blu-ray double feature of Bruno Mattei’s HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD and RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR which will be available August 26th and we finish off the Full Moon Classics Volume One Boxset with David Schmoeller’s NETHERWORLD! We give you guys one more shot at our contest from last week.
New York, NY – Wild Eye Releasing has announced that Mike Davis’President Wolfman will be available to own on DVD August 26 following a wildly successful festival run. Since its premiere at the Sydney Underground Film Festival, President Wolfman has been a favorite of audiences and critics alike, with the Huffington Post applauding the filmmakers for delivering “a candidate both parties can get behind.” President Wolfman has won awards around the country, taking home Best Script at the New Orleans Horror Film Festival and Best Feature at both the Aliens to Zombies Film Festival and Atlanta Horror Film Festival.
Meet John Wolfman: politician, single parent and werewolf, a man whose (hairy) hands are definitely full. Not only is he trying to stop his opponents from selling the US to China, he also has to solve a series of grizzly murders in the capitol. Add a crazed mad scientist, Smokey the Bear, a Miss Teen beauty pageant and a race against time to save his eight-year-old son Bobby from a murderous Vice President, and you have a movie that will keep you howling from start to finish.
Hailed as “perfect for fans of campy horror” by The Washington Post,President Wolfman was made entirely from recycled, stock and public domain footage with a newly scripted, scored and re-voiced soundtrack with enhanced visuals and effects.The DVD release of President Wolfman (SRP $14.95) will exclusively include several short films from director Mike Davis, outtakes, a music video and a highlight reel of the production.

They are joined by Jon Stafford (Full Metal Jacket), Barbara Weetman (Stuck in Love) and Taylor Kowalski (Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever).Synopsis:
Set in the small coastal town of Bright Leaf, North Carolina, Pieces of Talent centers around Charlotte, a disillusioned aspiring actress that can barely get by. Charlotte catches a break when seemingly chance circumstances put her in contact with a local filmmaker, David Long. David and Charlotte form a quick friendship that leads to Charlotte landing the starring role in David’s newest project.

***UPCOMING RELEASE UPDATES!***
Good morning everyone. We have some various updates on upcoming titles that will be of great interest to you so without further ado…
– We’ve had a lot asked when Amazon will restart pre-orders again for NIGHTBREED: THE LIMITED EDITION in light of that we were able to increase our number of units. We’ve been told any day now.
– THE DOCTOR AND THE DEVILS blu-ray streets 11/4.
– DOLLS (COLLECTOR’S EDITION) blu-ray streets 11/11. Artwork to be revealed soon!
– THE DARK HALF blu-ray streets 11/18.
– MONKEY SHINES blu-ray streets 11/18.
– Good news: Clive Barker’s LORD OF ILLUSIONS (COLLECTOR’s EDITION) blu-ray is now scheduled for Dec of this year. No other details at this time.
– Since we announced NEW YEAR’S EVIL on Blu-ray this past weekend at Comic Con, we’ve had several fans ask if we are going to be able to get this out before New Year’s Eve 2014 – which would be ideal of course. Unfortunately, despite attempts to do just that, we will not be able to have this land in Dec. Early 2015 is the plan.
– HELLHOLE is still in a “hellhole”. We are trying are best to locate usable elements and there are surrounding legal issues too. We are still trying for 2015. We regret announcing this so soon without having all the ducks in a row and for that we apologize.
– DOG SOLDIERS is still planned for 2015. Date though is still TBD.
