We’re finishing the week with a few more new disc reviews...

Tim has finished his thoughts on Halloween III: The Season of the Witch, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers all in 4K Ultra HD from Scream Factory.

Meanwhile, Stephen has checked out M. Night Shyamalan’s Old in 4K Ultra HD from Universal, along with David Bruckner’s The Night House on Blu-ray from Fox Searchlight, and the W.C. Fields classic The Bank Dick (1940) on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

And given that this is the Friday before Halloween, we’re saving my review of the Universal Classic Monsters: Icons of Horror Collection in 4K Ultra HD for posting on Sunday.

Lots more new and recent disc reviews are on the way for next week as well, so be sure to stay tuned for them. [Read on here...]

Dailies – Umbrella Entertainment

As many of us already know, when you’re searching for a film that has been elusive as far as DVD and Blu-ray are concerned, looking elsewhere in the world might just yield you a copy of what you seek. To that end, on the other side of the globe (Australia to be exact), Umbrella Entertainment is releasing a number of hard to find titles, as well as upgrades of already existing ones. From the obscure to the mainstream, there’s always something in their library worthy of your attention.

For example, their recent Blu-ray release of Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films and Machete Maidens Unleashed!. It’s an exclusive title piled high with extras, almost none of which you’ll find on the DVD-only state-side releases. Be sure to check out our review of it as well. And while their DVDs are Region 4 encoded, ALL of Umbrella Entertainment’s Blu-ray releases are Region Free, regardless of what the online description or final packaging states. So no matter what your setup is, you can watch their Blu-rays. Speaking of which, here are several recent titles worthy of your attention. [Read on here...]
