With Halloween right around the corner we're getting a stack of cult and foreign scare flicks finally getting released on DVD. The fine people at Synapse Films are releasing a trio of previously tough to track down flicks; Patrick, Dark Forces, and Thirst while Jesse Franco's Devil Hunter and Bloody Moon are getting the royal treatment from Severin.

We've also got a slew of QE faves Poutrygeist, and Isidro Ortizs' Shiver (Eskalofro). The oddly enjoyable Zombie Strippers premieres on unrated DVD along with Anchor Bay's animated Dead Space: Downfall.

Rounding off the list of must sees this week are; the Tarantino produced Hell Ride, Red, and 13 Hours in a Warehouse. More goodies like trailers and links after the break.
