    For some reason I thought this was already released on Blu-ray in North America but I guess not.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Unholy -- in Blu-ray

    The Unholy is a 1988 Vestron release, in Lionsgate's continuing series. A superb cast for a low-budget production -- Ben Cross, Hal Holbrook, Trevor Howard... Nothing beautiful here, unlike some of the other Vestron titles, but very serviceable nonetheless. A problem-free release, without...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ C.H.U.D & C.H.U.D II -- in Blu-ray

    The original 1984 C.H.U.D. (Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers) is a terrific little horror / thriller about something going on underground, and missing homeless people. It works because the cast takes it seriously (look for an appearance by a young John Goodman), and the effects work...
