John Connor [Celluloid 10.01.19] post apocalyptic scifi horror



After a deadly plague kills most of the world's population, the remaining survivors split into two groups - one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being - to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.

This new collector's edition Blu-ray of the 1994 mini-series of THE STAND will have to satisfy fans until we get that long-promised new TV series.



Onwards!






In John Carpenters CLASSIC vampire film, Vampires, James Woods is recovering from an ambush that killed his entire team, a vengeful vampire slayer must retrieve an ancient Catholic relic that, should it be acquired by vampires, will allow them to walk in sunlight.





Following in the footsteps of Francis Ford Coppola and Peter Bogdanovich, Roger Corman protégé Carl Colpaert (The Crew) made his directorial debut by combining repurposed excerpts from a foreign film in this case, Mamoru Oshii s (Ghost In The Shell) spellbinding 1985 anime Angel s Egg with new live-action footage shot in America. The result is In The Aftermath, a haunting post-apocalyptic vision like no other.

In a radiation-soaked wasteland, two surviving soldiers, Frank and Goose, search for essential supplies amid the rubble. After a violent confrontation, Frank is haunted by visions of an angelic young girl holding a giant egg, herself a refugee from another world altogether. Could the egg be the key to saving both their worlds?

A unique mash-up of 1980s B-movie nuclear paranoia and hauntingly lyrical animation, In The Aftermath is presented in a stunning new restoration that highlights Oshii s visionary genius and Colpaert s low-budget ingenuity.




Master storyteller Tim Burton (Batman, Edward Scissorhands) weaves an eerie, enchanting version of Sleepy Hollow, a classic tale of horror. Johnny Depp is Ichabod Crane, an eccentric investigator determined to stop the murderous Headless Horseman.

Christina Ricci is Katrina Van Tassel, the beautiful and mysterious girl with secret ties to the supernatural terror.





Gremlins is a wildly original roller-coaster ride of hilarious mischief. One minute your hair will stand on end, the next you’ll hold your sides with laughter at the havoc these supposedly gentle furballs create when the rules surrounding their care and feeding are inadvertently broken one fateful Christmas.

Written by Chris Columbus and directed by Joe Dante, Gremlins unleashes special effects that dazzle and enchant and merriment that lingers in the memory. And isn’t that “what superior popular moviemaking is all about” (Richard Corliss, Time).






Based on the popular original video game, Doom: Annihilation is an explosive, terrifying thrill ride. On the darkest moon of Mars, scientists have found an ancient portal which allows teleportation throughout the universe. Considered to be mankind's greatest discovery, it's actually a gateway from hell, unleashing a swarm of demons looking to steal the souls of everyone who gets in their way.

It's up to Lieutenant Joan Dark and an elite unit of Marines to destroy an ever-growing horde of bloodsucking and soul-stealing beasts and prevent them from taking over planet earth.




in HBO's Chernobyl, In April 1986, an explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics becomes one of the world's worst man-made catastrophes.





In Zombieland Nerdy college student Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has survived the plague that has turned mankind into flesh-devouring zombies because he’s scared of just about everything. Gun-toting, Twinkie-loving Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) has no fears.

Together, they are about to stare down their most horrifying challenge yet: each other’s company. Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin co-star in this double-hitting, head-smashing comedy.

All new special feature includes a look at the new film and reflections on the first film from the cast and filmmakers. Newly remastered and with Dolby Atmos audio.

Just a commentary and a short 'making of' it seems

Yeah. Not sure if the commentary is new honestly but that's a decent feature if it is.

The Stand contains two supplements: an audio commentary track and a making-of. No DVD or digital copies are included. This release ships with a non-embossed slipcover.

Audio Commentary: Writer Stephen King and Director Mick Garris discuss the program in detail, which begins with King going back to the process of crafting the novel. It of course moves onward to explore the program in some detail from all of the expected angles, and more, unsurprising given the length and expanded opportunities for commentary. But it's also a well-rounded listen that doesn't draw too terribly dull even at six hours.
Making Of (1080i upscaled, 5:29): A disappointingly brief piece that explores the process of bringing King's novel to the screen. It recounts the story and looks at a few key characters. It also explores the cast, shooting locales, King's involvement with the production, and the final clash between god and evil. It's also a good point for comparison for how good the program looks on BD compared to the SD source from which this supplement was constructed.

Carpenter didn't make anything watchable after In the Mouth of Madness, and Vampires is a good example.
