Hello horrorhounds and other deviants and welcome to a Release Date Roundup. Every now and then I like to keep you informed about what’s on my radar in terms of upcoming theatrical, DVD, and rarely, straight to TV releases. Below you’ll find what films to add to your Netflix queue or your Amazon Shopping cart. Films in bold will be reviewed before or at the time of release for sure – we’ve either already requested or received the films. Most of the others we’ll try to make sure we get our bloody little mits on too.

Remember, release dates are subject to change at any time, for no reason, to bury good films and shove bad ones down your throat. Be sure to keep an eye out for reviews of many of these films and our continual catch-up on horror films we’ve missed.
