The Uninvited

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. The Vincent Price Collection Six of Vincent Price‘s horror pictures for AIP are collected here in HD including The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit & the Pendulum, The Haunted Palace, The Masque of the Red Death, Witchfinder General, and The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Scream Factory hits another one out of the park with this fantastically produced and packaged collection of films featuring Price in all his glory. All but the final film bear some connection to the works of Edgar Allan Poe, a couple of them being very tenuous connections at best, and three were directed by Roger Corman. The movies run the gamut from good (Palace) to great (Masque) to WTF (Phibes), and they all look better than they ever have thanks to new HD restorations and a bevy of extras. Price was always an interesting and underrated actor, and this set offers a glimpse at a fun and fascinating variety of performances.

Join us each week as Rob Hunter takes a look at new DVD releases and gives his highly unqualified opinion as to which titles are worth BUYing, which are better off as RENTals, and which should be AVOIDed at all costs. And remember, these listings and category placements are meant as informational conversation starters only. But you can still tell Hunter how wrong he is in the comment section below. This week sees only one major release in Clash Of the Titans alongside several lesser known titles like Artois the Goat, Ip Man, Operation: Endgame, The Snake, and more. See all of this week’s relevant DVD releases after the jump…



There sure is a lot of damned treasure stashed around this country. Thankfully we’re going to keep on finding it.



That’s right friends, two weeks in a row here for the Blu-ray Report. I would like to tell you that I’ve turned over a new leaf in my duties as Blu-ray watchdog, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. The good news is that I am here this week and ready to spread some Blu-ray knowledge all over your minds. Also good news — we’ve got Jean-Claude Van Damme on Blu-ray this week. That friends, is a win. We’ve also got our good friend, Managing Editor Cole Abaius swooping in to review The Uninvited. And now on to our breakdown of this week’s Blu-ray releases, starting with those that I have nominated as the Creme of the Crop. As always, please support your local Reject Stimulus Fund by clicking on the titles of the movies and picking them up over at Amazon. Creme of the Crop Star Trek: The Original Series (Season 1) This is the gem of the week. With the release of J.J. Abrams’ awesome new Star Trek film hitting theaters at warp speed in a week and a half, it is time to revisit some of the glory days of Star Trek: TOS in glorious high definition. It is time to go back to those first episodes, when Spock was sometimes a little greener than normal and the set pieces were awful, but it all worked. But of course the most exciting thing about this Blu-ray release — save for the excuse to go back […]



This week… Bride Wars, The Hit, Hotel For Dogs, In The Realm Of The Senses, JCVD, Martyrs, Nothing But The Truth, One Eyed Monster, Satanic Sluts III, The Uninvited, and While She Was Out!


May Creeps Us Out

This weekend’s release of The Uninvited reminded us that men aren’t the only ones scaring us to death in thrillers and horror, so we decided to delve deeper into the history of the women that make our skin crawl.



Suffice it to say that Our Long National Nightmare is Over. Paul Blart: Mall Cop has been taken down at the box office by, well, Taken.



Kevin Carr reviews the movies the studios didn’t allow him to see early this week: Taken and The Uninvited.



Neil has returned from Park City, but he’s decompressing from his fruitful Sundance trip. So Kristin Dreyer Kramer from braved the Ohio snow and ice to make a trip to the Magical Studio in the Sky to join in this week’s fun.



We have in store a humdrum weekend with three new movies rolling out: Taken, The Uninvited and New in Town. Still, the big question on everyone’s mind is whether any of these three will be able to stop the big, fat steamroller that is Paul Blart: Mall Cop.


Seriously, Why Would You Want to Boil a Housepet?

Houseguests, whether they’re The Uninvited or not, can be rather annoying. Compare yourself to this checklist of bad traits to see if your friends secretly hate having you over.



Looks like January is the month of Frights with 12 horror films being released, compared to an average of 2 in October? Well if you think our resident rage-aholic is okay with that, you’ve never read this column.



Instead of releasing a bunch of horror films and thrillers in the month of October, the powers that be in Hollywood have decided to release the trailers for their horror films in October, and release the actual horror films in January and February.
