    Inner Sanctum Mysteries Delayed Again !

    Regressing back to the earlier "standard" DVD release of the Universal 1940s INNER SANCTUM film series. If you recall the print for STRANGE CONFESSION (1945) utilized had the cheap and inferior Realart Pictures re-release closing credits appended to it. STRANGE CONFESSION (1945) was reissued...

    Universal's Inner Sanctum Mysteries coming from Mill Creek

    "This is the Inner Sanctum. A strange, fantastic world controlled by a mass of living, pulsating flesh...the Mind! It destroys, distorts, creates Monsters. Commits Murder. Yes, even You without knowing can commit...Murder!"--The Opening Prologue Narrative from Universal Pictures' Inner...

    Blu-ray Review The Mystery of the Wax Museum Blu-ray Review

    It is interesting that MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM (1933) occurs in more contemporary times (circa the 1930s) while its remake HOUSE OF WAX (1953) takes place (presumably) in the late 1800s. The characters of the heroine (Fay Wray) and snoopy female newspaper reporter (Glenda Farrell) in MYSTERY...

    Three Fantastic Journeys by Karel Zeman - Criterion Blu-ray Review

    "If it were possible for Man to journey back into Time, back millions and millions of years, back at last to Creation itself, he would probably see the Spectacle of Life largely as it is presented in this film."--The Opening Prologue Narrative from JOURNEY TO THE BEGINNING OF TIME (1966)...

    Scream Factory Press Release: War of the Colossal Beast (1958) (Blu-ray)

    Sold! Albeit no specifics on any additional bonus special features (ie. theatrical trailer, audio commentaries, etc.). This was originally the (supporting) co-feature to Bert I. Gordon's ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE (1958) and now classic American-International Pictures 1950s B-Film collectors...

    Pre-Order Bell, Book and Candle (1958) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    It's good to see a (parent) company (in this case Columbia Pictures) getting behind and releasing its own product instead of licensing it out. This enjoyable fantasy-premised comedy makes for splendid Christmas-time viewing and I will gladly support it. It's allegorical connotation of a hidden...

    Pre-Order Day The World Ended (1955) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    First things first! Let's concentrate on what will (possibly) be available from THE ARKOFF COLLECTION 1950s AIP titles. And there are plenty of them outside the SF-Horror genre. Just how far Shout! Factory intends to go with these, who can say? Obviously these individuals can be reasonably...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Universal Horror Collection: Volume 3 - in Blu-ray

    Somehow I pressed the wrong key here! I agree wholly with your assessment of these films. The only real "jewel" is TOWER OF LONDON (1939) which seems out-of-place with these other lesser B-film second features. They should have lumped all of the Karloff Universal films together in one...
