• Cliffhanger Jumps To A New 30th Anniversary 4K Ultra HD SteelBook May 30th!

    Posted Fri Mar 10, 2023 at 06:53 AM PST by

    Sylvester Stallone's 1993 high altitude "Die Hard on a Mountain" action-adventure epic Cliffhanger picks up a new Dolby Vision HDR grade and deluxe SteelBook packaging to celebrate its 30th Anniversary.

    This has been a busy year for Stallone fans and their growing 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray collections and it's going to get even busier this May. It's wild to realize Cliffhanger turns 30 years old this year!I spent days of my valuable childhood time watching this movie and desperately trying to master the impossible snowboarding sequences on the Sega CD game. Now after an already solid 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release, Sony is doing what Sony does and reissuing the film on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for a new Anniversary release complete with Dolby Vision HDR upgrade and deluxe StreelBook packaging. To sweeten the pot, it looks like they're also tossing in a bunch of new never-before-seen deleted scenes into the mix! I heard this one was heavily edited for the numerous bloody kills so I'm curious to see if those make an appearance this go around.

    Cliffhanger: 30th Anniversary
    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBook

    Not yet up for pre-order, the set should hit store shelves and online retailers May 30th, 2023. Here are all the details:


    SYNOPSIS

    Sylvester Stallone, John Lithgow, Michael Rooker, Janine Turner and Ralph Waite star in this high-altitude avalanche of action: a non-stop adventure peak with suspense and capped with heart-quaking terror. For Rocky Mountain Rescue, the mission is almost routine: locate five climbers. With the woman he loves (Turner) and his best friend (Rooker), Gabe Walker (Stallone) braves the icy peaks only to discover that the distress call is really a trap set by merciless international terrorist Eric Qualen (Lithgow). Now millions of dollars and their own lives hang in the balance. Against explosive firepower, bitter cold, and dizzying heights, Walker must outwit Qualen in a deadly game of hide-and-seek.

  • James Cameron's Avatar: The Way of Water Streaming 4K UHD Coming March 28th - Discs can't be too far behind!

    Posted Tue Mar 7, 2023 at 06:22 AM PST by
    Avatar: The Way of Water Announcement

    His name is James, James Cameron
    The bravest pioneer
    No budget too steep, no sea too deep
    Who's that?
    It's him, James Cameron
    James, James Cameron explorer of the sea
    With a dying thirst to be the first
    Could it be? Yeah that's him!
    James Cameron

    Prepare to return to Pandora on March 28th for James Cameron's Avatar: The Way of Water is coming to digital retailers
    Prime, Vudu, Apple TV, and other Movies Anywhere-connected Platforms.

    After an impressive critical response - even if our own Bryan Kluger was less forgiving in his review (I liked it a lot BTW) - Avatar: The Way of Water one again proved that you never bet against James Cameron because James Cameron will do what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron. Now this announcement is only for the digital streaming sale/rental release on various platforms. No word about Disney+ and certainly no news about disc release so we don't have any word on a new Blu-ray or 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Avatar - and we certainly don't know when The Abyss or even True Lies might be coming down the pipeline. Hopefully, the wait for a disc announcement isn't as long as Top Gun: Maverick. Needless to say - 2023 is a big year for James Cameron fans. What we do know is what's coming with this streaming release and it'll give you an idea of what to expect for the eventual disc releases of Avatar: The Way of Water.

    Bonus Features:

    Inside Pandora's Box (A series of featurettes on the challenges facing cast and crew as filmmakers devise new technologies to push the limits of cinema)

    • Capturing Pandora – James Cameron’s approach to performance capture has the cast performing in a volume rigged with infrared cameras to capture their movement, and head rig cameras to capture emotion on their faces with only the boundaries of imagination to limit them.
    • The Undersea World of Pandora – Co-production designer Dylan Cole and his team conceive of the marine creatures required for Avatar: The Way of Water while James Cameron and his stunt team devise extraordinary means to bring those creatures to life in a performance capture tank.
    • The Challenges of Pandora's Waters – James Cameron tackles the “non-trivial challenge” of performance capture above and below the water’s surface, utilizing a wave machine and current generator to reproduce ocean conditions, and underwater vehicles to replicate creature movement.

    • Bringing Pandora to Life – Once James Cameron completes his virtual production process, every sequence is turned over to Wētā FX to bring Pandora to life – with unprecedented advancements in facial performance, environments and making CG water look real.
    • The RDA Returns to Pandora – Co-production designer Ben Procter and his team present an armada of new vehicles and human technologies that the RDA brings to Pandora – in concept design and with practical builds.
    • The New Characters of Pandora – Meet the important new characters of the Avatar saga played by Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell and Jemaine Clement.
    • The Sounds of Pandora – Hear how James Cameron worked with composer Simon Franglen to create the distinctive music of The Way of Water while building on James Horner’s brilliant score for Avatar, and learn how Chris Boyes created the immersive sounds of Pandora.
    • New Zealand – Pandora’s Home – The production of the Avatar sequels is so thoroughly ensconced in New Zealand that James Cameron considers The Way of Water a “New Zealand film.” Hear reflections from the cast and crew, including the remarkable New Zealand crew, on making the film.

    Posted Wed Feb 22, 2023 at 08:14 AM PST by

    The classic Christopher Reeve Superman adventures will all fly high on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on April 18th now coming May 9th

    So far stateside we're only getting 5-film collections, however, in the UK they appear to be getting single-title releases. We've asked whether or not those single releases are coming here so those who only want the first two... or those people who only want Superman IV can get that. We also don't know yet if Superman: The Movie will be the reported new remaster or simply a repress of the 2018 disc - Again we've asked about that as well as HDR (HDR10 or Dolby Vision) for all films, Atmos for all films, etc. As soon as we get those answers we'll update our listings. But for sure, this is what's coming our way: A 4K UHD Blu-ray box set containing Superman: The Movie, Superman II, Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, Superman III, and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace in celebration of Warner Brothers' 100th Anniversary will be available on April 18. There will also be an Amazon-exclusive SteelBook release featuring the classic poster artwork on each SteelBook case along with a whole bunch of swag including a lenticular card of the phantom zone, comic book, and certificate of authenticity.

    UPDATE 3/21/23
    We just received word that Warner Bros is delaying the release now until May 9th, 2023 but digital releases should still stick to the April 18th release date.

    About the Films:

     

    Superman: The Movie

    Academy Award winners Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman head an all-star cast in the fantastic, action-packed film that made Christopher Reeve an international star playing the greatest superhero of all time.  From the doomed planet of Krypton, two parents launch a spaceship carrying their infant son to earth.  Here he grows up to become Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for the Metropolis Daily Planet.  But with powers and abilities far beyond those of ordinary men, he battles for truth and justice as Superman.

    An Alexander Salkind presentation and directed by Richard Donner (The Goonies, Lethal Weapon, The Lost Boys), the film stars Academy Award winner Marlon Brando (On the Waterfront, The Godfather) as Jor-El, Academy Award winner Gene Hackman (The French Connection, Unforgiven) as Lex Luthor, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, and Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent/Superman.

    Based on the DC character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman was produced by Pierre Spengler from a story by Mario Puzo and a screenplay by Puzo, David Newman, Leslie Newman, and Robert Benton.  Ilya Salkind served as executive producer.  The film also features Ned Beatty as Otis, Jackie Cooper as Perry White, Glen Ford as Jonathan Kent, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, Valerie Perrine as Eve Teschmacher, and Terrance Stamp as General Zod.

    Superman was nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Film Editing, Best Music (Original Score) and Best Sound.  The film also received a Special Achievement Academy Award for Visual Effects.  In 2017, Superman was inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry.

    SYNOPSIS

    Superman II (Theatrical Version)

    Unwittingly released from Phantom Zone imprisonment, three superpowered Planet Krypton criminals Terence Stamp, Sarah Douglas and Jack O'Halloran) plan to enslave Earth – just when Superman (Christopher Reeve) decides to show a more romantic side to Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). Gene Hackman also returns as Lex Luthor in this sequel that features a top supporting cast, witty Richard Lester direction, and visuals that astound and delight.

    Directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day’s Night, The Three Musketeers), the film stars Academy Award winner Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, and Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent/Superman.

    Based on the DC character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the film was produced by Pierre Spengler from a story by Mario Puzo and a screenplay by Puzo, David Newman, and Leslie Newman.  Alexander Salkind and Ilya Salkind served as executive producer.  The film also features Ned Beatty as Otis, Jackie Cooper as Perry White, Sarah Douglas as Ursa, Jack O’Halloran as Non, Valerie Perrine as Eve Teschmacher, Susannah York as Lara, and Terrence Stamp as General Zod.

     

    Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut

    Director Richard Donner began shooting Superman II while concurrently filming Superman: The Movie, though the theatrical version of the film was ultimately directed by Richard Lester. In 2006, Donner’s original unique vision was released for the first time. Jor-El (Marlon Brando in footage cut from the theatrical version) appears in key scenes that amplify Superman lore and deepen the relationship between father and son. Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) plots more schemes to unmask Clark Kent as Superman (Christopher Reeve). With so many changes, large and small, including a different beginning and resolution, this version is an eye-opening alternate experience.

    Directed by Richard Donner, the film stars Academy Award winner Marlon Brando as Jor-El, Academy Award winner Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, and Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent/Superman.

    Based on the DC character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the film was produced by Pierre Spengler and Michael Tau from a story by Mario Puzo and a screenplay by Puzo, David Newman, and Leslie Newman.  Ilya Salkind served as executive producer.  The film also features Ned Beatty as Otis, Jackie Cooper as Perry White, Sarah Douglas as Ursa, Jack O’Halloran as Non, Valerie Perrine as Eve Teschmacher, Susannah York as Lara, and Terrence Stamp as General Zod.

     

    Superman III

    Meet Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor), a naive computer-programming natural. For him, a keyboard is a weapon – and, as a result, Superman faces the microelectronic menace of his life. Christopher Reeve reprises his signature role, deepening his character’s human side as Clark Kent sees Lana Lang (Annette O’Toole) at a Smallville High class reunion. And when the Man of Steel becomes his own worst enemy after exposure to Kryptonite, Reeve pulls off both roles with dazzling skill. Relive Superman III with all its heart, heroism and high-flying humor.

    Directed by Richard Lester, the film stars Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent/Superman and Margot Kidder as Lois Lane.

    Based on the DC character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the film was produced by Pierre Spengler from a screenplay by David Newman and Leslie Newman.  Alexander Salkind and Ilya Salkind served as executive producer.  The film also features Richard Pryor as Gus Gorman, Jackie White as Perry White, Marc McClure as Jimmy Olsen, Annette O’Toole as Lana Lang, and Robert Vaughn as Ross Webster.

     

    Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

    Christopher Reeve not only dons the title hero’s cape for the fourth time but also helped develop the movie’s provocative theme: nuclear disarmament. To make the world safe for nuclear arms merchants, Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) creates a new being to challenge the Man of Steel: the radiation-charged Nuclear Man (Mark Pillow). The two foes clash in an explosive extravaganza that sees Superman save the Statue of Liberty, plug the volcanic eruption of Mount Etna and rebuild the demolished Great Wall of China. 

    Directed by Sydney J. Furie (The Ipcress File, Iron Eagle), the film stars Academy Award winner Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, and Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent/Superman.

    Based on the DC character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the film was produced by Yoram Globus and Menahem Golan from a story by Christopher Reeve & Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal and a screenplay by Konner & Rosenthal.  The film also features Jackie Cooper as Perry White, Marc McClure as Jimmy Olsen, Jon Cryer as Lenny, Sam Wanamaker as David Warfield, Mark Pillow as Nuclear Man, and Mariel Hemingway as Lacy Warfield.

  • Plane Taxiing For Take Off On 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray & Blu-ray March 28

    Posted Tue Feb 21, 2023 at 03:51 PM PST by

    Lionsgate's action-thriller starring Gerard Butler and Mike Colter is getting a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray (Combo Pack), Blu-ray (Combo Pack), DVD, and on-demand release March 28.

    Read our film review here.

    In the white-knuckle action movie Plane, pilot Brodie Torrance (Gerard Butler) saves his passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island – only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning. When most of the passengers are taken hostage by dangerous rebels, the only person Torrance can count on for help is Louis Gaspare (Mike Colter), an accused murderer who was being transported by the FBI. In order to rescue the passengers, Torrance will need Gaspare’s help, and will learn there’s more to Gaspare than meets the eye.

    Both the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack and the following bonus features:

  • Star Trek: The Next Generation Movies Hit 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on April 4...Engage!

    Posted Tue Feb 21, 2023 at 12:40 PM PST by

    The four Star Trek: The Next Generation movies will be warping to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray in a 4-Film Set as well as individually on April 4.

    Space... the frontier, the continuing cinematic voyages of the starship Enterprise carry on with the Next Generation crew. Watch as they challenge Malcolm McDowell, the Swedish-sounding Borg, a rogue faction within Starfleet and ultimately Picard's clone. The films varied in quality from one to the next, some simply would have made better stand-alone episodes than feature films, but there are some incredibly memorable cinematic moments to enjoy.

    Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Picture Collection - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    All four big-screen adventures featuring fan-favorite Star Trek characters Picard, Riker, Data, LaForge, Worf, Troi, and Dr. Crusher arrive for the first time ever on 4K Ultra HD™ with Dolby Vision™* and HDR-10 on April 4, 2023, just in time for First Contact Day (April 5th, the day Vulcans first made contact with humans). 

    For the Trek fans who only want one or two or are just more interested in having the original theatrical poster artwork on the cover, Paramount is also releasing single-title editions:

    Star Trek: Generations - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    Star Trek: Generations - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    The journey begins with original cast members Kirk, Scott, and Chekov in a story that spans space and time in STAR TREK: GENERATIONS, continuing with a terrifying face off against the Borg in STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT, a dangerous plot against a peaceful planet in STAR TREK: INSURRECTION, and a familiar old foe returning in STAR TREK: NEMESIS.

  • All-Star Superman Arrives on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on April 18

    Posted Wed Feb 15, 2023 at 12:48 PM PST by

    The critically-acclaimed 2011 DC Comics animated movie will be soaring to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on April 18.

    Grant Morrison's beloved, Eisner Award-winning vision of Superman's heroic final days on Earth is brought to exquisite, animated life in All-Star Superman. The film begins as the Man of Steel rescues an ill-fated mission to the Sun (sabotaged by Lex Luthor) but, in the process, is oversaturated by radiation - which accelerates his cell degeneration. Sensing even he will be unable to cheat death, Superman ventures into new realms - finally revealing his secret to Lois, confronting Lex Luthor's perspective of humanity, and attempting to ensure Earth's safety before his own impending end with one final, selfless act.

    All-Star Superman - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:

    • The Art of the All-star Adaptation (New Featurette) – Go behind the scenes and inside the process of screenwriting, character designing and scoring the animated adaptation of the quintessential Superman comic series, All-Star Superman. This fascinating featurette includes insight from executive producer Bruce Timm, director Sam Liu, character designer Dusty Abell and composer Christopher Drake.
    • An All-Star Salute to the Silver Age Superman (New Featurette) – Explore DC’s historical inspirations in Grant Morrison’s love letter to the wildly fantastic Silver Age of Superman in comics.
    • Superman Now (Featurette) – In a moment of inspiration, Grant Morrison was provided an opportunity to revamp the Man of Steel into something modern, something more relevant for today's audience. This is the story of All-Star Superman - where it all started, and what it came to be.

  • HDD's Favorite Cult Classic and Horror 4K UHD & Bluray Releases of 2022

    Posted Tue Feb 7, 2023 at 11:53 AM PST by
    High-Def Digest's Favorite Cult Classics and Horror 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray releases of 2022

    2022 was an absolutely insane year for cult and horror 4K Blu-ray releases, with great offerings from both major studios and boutique labels arriving nearly every week! Add on the fact that exclusive 4K Blu-ray releases were coming out in countries like Germany, UK and France, and you’ll have a tough time keeping track of everything that was coming out each and every day. Our wallets certainly felt the hit! It’s absurd that we got all of Argento’s Animal Trilogy in 4K in the same year that Alligator finally hit HD and 4K as well as a ton of nearly fogotten SOV favorites finding new life on Blu-ray. Hell, even Poltergeist and Fright Night got gorgeous new 4K transfers, with Criterion delivering the mother of all Zombie films in 4K. With so much great stuff coming out this last year, it was nearly impossible to narrow the field so Bruce Douglas, Sam Cohen, and Matthew Hartman offer up a few of their favorites and honorable mentions.

    High-Def Digest's Favorite Cult Classics and Horror Releases of 2022

    Thriller: A Cruel Picture (Vinegar Syndrome)

    Full disclosure: The only context I had for this film was that it was some sort of grindhouse classic that Tarantino had cited as being a major influence on him, plus the general reputation it has in cult film communities of being a full-throated blend of sleazy sex and violence. What I was not prepared for was the ugly and caustic revenge film it is, like it’s in fierce opposition to the leagues of fans who have held it up as an energetic, sleazy time. Vinegar Syndrome presented us with a full 4K Blu-ray package during their big Halfway to Black Friday Sale, which of course sold out quickly and has since reappeared in a standard edition. With both cuts of the film sourced from a new 4K restoration from the negative, an incredible making-of doc that includes interviews with Christina Lindberg and Gunnar Palm, plus a stellar 4K transfer supported by HDR, Thriller: A Cruel Picture gets my highest recommendation. Just, uh…expect to be shocked. - Sam Cohen

    Pink Flamingos (Criterion Collection)

    What cult film list would be complete without a nod to The Sultan of Sleaze himself, John Waters! Back in June we reviewed a beautiful Criterion Collection release of his notorious film Pink Flamingos. Fully restored from 4K scans of the original 16mm source elements, the shockingly hilarious satire has never looked better. Bonus features are mostly archival but worth it for collectors to double dip. - Bruce Douglas

    Dune (1984) Ultimate Edition (Koch Media)

    David Lynch’s Dune is a fascinating failure. An expensive flop in theaters, the film steadily grew into a cult following with fans picking over every shred of footage to untangle the cinematic storytelling web of Frank Herbert’s iconic novel. As Arrow arranged a pretty terrific release for the U.K. and the United States, Koch Media delivered the genuine Ultimate Edition offering up not only Lynch’s Theatrical Cut in gorgeous 4K and 1080p, but also the Extended Television Cut in HD as well as the fabled Spicediver fan-edit in 720p. If that wasn’t enough there are tons of swag items including a production design booklet, the Marvel comics adaptation, and tons of new and archival bonus features including the excellent Ballyhoo Film’s feature-length documentary The Sleeper Must Awaken: The Making of Dune which was supposed to be on the Arrow disc but sadly didn’t make it due to some delays. - Matthew Hartman 

    Dog Soldiers (Second Sight / Scream Factory

    My personal favorite 4K horror import from 2022 was Second Sight’s hardbox digipack release of Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers. Yeah, I know what you’re going to say: why didn’t I buy Shout’s version in the US? Absolutely no offense is given toward Shout’s version, but I’ve been following Second Sight’s efforts on this particular title very closely and wanted to support that. Marshall shot this rough and tough horror film on Super 16mm, then it was blown up to 35mm for theatrical release. Prior releases had been sourced from 35mm prints with noise reduction really softening the whole film terribly, but here we get a stunning 2160p presentation sourced from a 4K restoration of the original 16mm camera negative. The film grain looks incredible here and colors are so much more natural, plus the bloodletting on display still hits just as hard as it did upon its original release. And for the physical media fiends, this one comes in a terrific hardbox case with a digipack and booklet inside. Scream Factory delivered their own excellent 4K release utilizing the same A/V elements with plenty of great bonus features, it just wasn't as elaborate as what Second Sight delivered. - Sam Cohen

    The Sonny Chiba Collection (Shout! Factory)

    The Sonny Chiba Collection brings seven underseen films from the action star’s career in a mix of sleazy exploitation actioners, yakuza crime thrillers, and samurai epics. Fans couldn’t get enough of this Shout! Factory box set in 2022! To see features like Shogun’s Shadow and Bodyguard Kiba 2 finally make their jump to home video made this set worth every penny. A/V presentations for each film are impressive given the age and availability of the earlier features. Limited special features here, but the films speak for themselves! Pair this set with Shout! Factory's excellent 2019 Street Fighter Collection and Arrow's Sister Street Fighter Collection. - Bruce Douglas

    Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (Turbine Medien / Arrow)

    Another gift from the import markets was the one-two-punch of Arrow UK and Germany’s Turbine Medien dropping their respective editions of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. This grossly unnerving and shocking horror film is loosely based on real events and was shot on location in Chicago in 16mm for an extra grimy and creepy vibe. The new Dolby Vision transfer is fantastic and the film has never looked or sounded better after years of dodgy releases that left much to be desired. Both sets feature an excellent assortment of bonus features - the Arrow has more commentaries, but the Turbine disc offers up an alternate widescreen framing on Blu-ray. - Matthew Hartman

    Four Flies on Grey Velvet (Severin Films)

    Again, how can I choose one Dario Argento 4K Blu-ray release from 2022 to like the most? Simply, you can’t! But the Black Friday-exclusive 4K Blu-ray package of Argento’s Four Flies on Grey Velvet from Severin Films gets a special mention. The 1971 giallo film features Argento at his spine-tingling best, and the violence is frequently punctuated by farcical comedy and visual conceits that the Italian maestro would revisit throughout his career. You could even say that Four Flies on Grey Velvet is the rollicking genesis of Argento’s obsession with voyeurism, writ large into a rock anthem of sorts. Severin’s beautiful new 4K transfer is sourced directly from the original 2-perf negative, restoring all of the various differences between the Italian Director’s Cut and English Language Version and gifting the whole thing with Dolby Vision HDR that’s tuned perfectly. Add the huge collection of supplements spread across the four discs included (one 4K disc, two Blu-ray and one CD) and you have a horror fan’s dream. Here’s to hoping that Severin follows this exclusive release up with a standard edition down the road. - Sam Cohen

    The Films of Doris Wishman (AGFA)

    The queen of absurdist sexploitation cinema received much attention in 2022 with lavish box sets featuring her avant-garde body of work. From Something Weird Video and AGFA the two collections we reviewed feature a number of cult favorites including Bad Girls Go to Hell, Double Agent 73, and Let Me Die A Woman. Lovingly restored with breathtaking restoration work the films have never looked better. Accompanied by a wealth of bonus features, The Films of Doris Wishman is a must-have for any cult collector. - Bruce Douglas 

    God Told Me To (Blue Underground) 

    Larry Cohen’s masterstroke in genuine terror, God Told Me To is just a damn unsettling piece of filmmaking. I got this disc to review right as another horrific mass shooting was hitting headlines making this release unfortunately timely and prescient. As we struggle to understand why the latest incident happened in the real world, in the film, Tony Lo Bianco is obsessing over his latest case where a string of murders happened with each perpetrator uttering the same terrifying four words. Blue Underground continued their incredible streak of reference-quality catalog releases giving this film an amazing Dolby Vision transfer complete with a new Atmos track and plenty of bonus features. - Matthew Hartman

    Black Christmas (Scream Factory)

    The love I have for this film knows no bounds, therefore picking up a newly minted 4K Blu-ray release wasn’t really a tough decision to make. There were some well-documented issues with the original audio tracks included in Shout’s 2016 Blu-ray release, to which Shout responded back then by sending out replacement discs with an improved-but-still-bunk single-channel track. For this new release, though, they present both newly restored versions of the original mono track and 5.1 upmix. Sound engineer Brett Cameron, who gets his own special feature in this release, spent hundreds of hours restoring the original mono track to repair the many missing moments of sound effects and dialogue from previous releases. As for the new 2160p transfer aided by Dolby Vision HDR, it’s the best this dark-as-hell film has ever looked. Turn the lights off for maximum effect! - Sam Cohen

    Red Lips (Saturn's Core)

    2022 was a huge year for SOV productions getting the HD treatment. Vinegar Syndrome's OCN partner label Saturn’s Core has been painstakingly reviving its catalog of lost SOV horror thrillers with impressive results. My favorite of the year was 1995’s Red Lips, the trashy erotic epic that launched the 90’s lesbian vampire boom. Starring Ghetty Chasun, Michelle Bauer, and Kitten Natividad the film is packed with sleazy vibes but courting an honest love story at the center of it all. Thankfully Saturn’s Core brought the film to Blu-ray preserving the analogue patina for a new generation of fans. Special features allow fans to dive deeper into film with interviews and archival footage. It’s not for everyone, but that’s the beauty of these films making their way into our collections. - Bruce Douglas 

    The Wicker Man (Imprint) 

    Robin Hardy’s shocking folk horror film The Wicker Man has been remade (hilariously) and inspired numerous films in its wake. The film has had multiple cuts over the years with tons of informative bonus features, but never before has everything been pulled together into a single fantastic box set. This edition offers up the Theatrical Cut, Director’s Cut, and Final Cut of the film along with hours of bonus features complete with the film’s iconic and damned creepy soundtrack. Imprint went full out for this release and it’s a genuine treat for fans of the film and Christopher Lee enthusiasts. - Matthew Hartman

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (Turbine Medien) 

    Yes, I am aware that Tobe Hooper’s classic horror film is being released in the US on 4K Blu-ray in a matter of weeks, however, attention must be paid to Turbine’s wonderful 4K Blu-ray steelbook release of the film from March 2022. As an owner of Turbine’s 2016 4K Blu-ray release of the film, which lacked HDR and had some wonky encoding, it’s my great pleasure to report that Turbine’s 2022 4K Blu-ray is a huge upgrade. Some may say that presenting a film shot on 16mm in 4K doesn’t really make sense, but to this reviewer, the enhanced resolution helps to refine the grain even more. The Dolby Vision HDR is tuned just right as well, bringing the most out of highlights, close-ups, and primaries. That way you can appreciate all the baked-in details without softening the impact of something as gritty as this film. And not that it was needed, but Turbine provides this release with a true murderer’s row of audio options, including original mono,  Dolby Atmos, and even a 13.1 Auro-3D mix for those who have the equipment. These SteelBooks quickly sold out but Turbine has reissued the discs and artwork for new Mediabooks. - Sam Cohen

    Attack of the 50ft woman (Warner Archive Collection)

    In November we had a chance to sit down with the b-movie classic Attack of the 50ft Woman.  The Warner Archive Collection delivered the goods for a fantastic Blu-ray release sporting a gorgeous transfer, clean audio, and a nice audio commentary. Our editor said the restoration sported “impressive details and a gorgeous grayscale”. While the film may leave much to be desired in terms of plot and execution, its impact on drive-in films and genre staples can’t be understated. - Bruce Douglas

    The Frighteners Ultimate Edition (Turbine Medien) 

    Before The Lord of the Rings and King Kong, Peter Jackson made another special effects extravaganza - that no one went to see in theaters. The Frighteners starring Michael J. Fox as an unscrupulous paranormal investigator didn’t become a hit until home video when word of mouth slowly turned this expensive theatrical flop into a genuine cult classic. Now thanks to the good folks at Turbine Medien, The Frighteners scares up one of the best 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray releases of the year with new Dolby Vision HDR transfers for both the Theatrical Cut and Director’s Cut with the DC also scoring a terrific Atmos mix to match. Then as an added bonus, They have the Director’s Cut with a new open matte presentation on Blu-ray on top of hours of new and archival bonus features. It’s a beautiful box set that is a genuine Ultimate Edition for one of the best horror comedies ever made - and for a while at least, this is the only place you'll be able to score this great flick in 4K! - Matthew Hartman
