John Connor [DVD News 01.08.19] scifi horror action cult thriller adventure



So it's the first week of 2019. Let's see what new releases are hitting shelves and kick of the year right!

First up we have the JJ Abrams produced Stephen King Universe series Castle Rock which ran on Hulu. Based on the stories of Stephen King, the series intertwines characters and themes from the fictional town of Castle Rock.

Since Stephen King himself has a history of crossing his narratives and bringing characters from his books into others, I'm curious to check this out.

BRAND NEW HD MASTER FROM A 4K SCAN OF THE ORIGINAL CAMERA NEGATIVE!

Oscar winners Geraldine Page (The Trip to Bountiful, Sweet Bird of Youth) and Ruth Gordon (Harold and Maude, Rosemary’s Baby) sharpen their claws on each other in this chilling thriller about a lost fortune, a mad heiress and a housekeeper hell-bent on digging up the truth. Mrs. Marrable (Page) is a society matron who's had some shocking news: her late husband left her only a stamp collection.

Determined to maintain her extravagant lifestyle, she takes advantage of an unlikely new source of income—her housekeepers, by robbing them not only of their life savings, but also their lives. The turnover rate for help speeds faster than a revolving door... until Mrs. Marrable's latest hire, Mrs. Dimmock (Gordon), develops a drive to unearth the terrible secret buried in the front yard.

Directed Lee H. Katzin (Le Mans) and co-starring Rosemary Forsyth (How Do I Love Thee?). Produced by Robert Aldrich (The Grissom Gang).

Ruth Bennett (Barbara Stanwyck, Witness to Murder, The Lady Eve) has inherited an old house in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Amish country. She moves into the house with her niece, Sara Dunning (Kitty Winn, The Panic in Needle Park, The Exorcist).

The house was built before the Revolutionary War and is said to be haunted by the spirits of its original inhabitants. With the help of Pat McDougal (Richard Egan, The 300 Spartans, GOG), a local professor, and one of his students, Stan Whitman (Michael Anderson Jr., The Sons of Katie Elder, Major Dundee), they delve into the history of the house and find a scandal that involves a Revolutionary War general, who was suspected of being a traitor, and his daughter, who had disappeared after eloping with her boyfriend, a young British soldier.

The spirits of the general and his daughter take possession of Pat's and Sara's bodies and a dark secret is revealed.

Scorpion Releasing proudly presents this cult classic from a brand new 4k scan of the original director’s cut, supervised by the director.

With the aid of his girlfriend (Kirstie Alley, Cheers, Look Who’s Talking), he consults a top eye doctor (Keir Dullea, 2001: A Space Odyssey, David and Lisa) who fits him with an experimental device allowing him to see with the aid of a computer interface and brain electrodes.

Meanwhile, a taxi driver is taking young women up to their apartments, sedating them, and performing a little fatal amateur surgery. Their paths inevitably converge as the serial killer starts cutting too close to home.

From cult director Nico Mastorakis (Island of Death) comes a sexy, sleek thriller co-starring Lana Clarkson (Haunting of Morella, Barbarian Queen), James Daughton (Malibu Beach, Animal House), Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Wicked Lady) and Valeria Golino (Rain Man), plus a chilling score by Stanley Myers (The Deer Hunter, Conduct Unbecoming, Cold Heaven) with songs by John Kongos.
