Well it took a while, but I have finally found time to compile my annual listing of the 50 best releases of the year.

These are my opinions only and yours will more than likely vary quite a bit. There were tons of releases this year both on DVD and Blu-ray.

Shout Factory, Olive and Kino led the way, but Sinister Cinema, WWE and Mill Creek are included as well as a few other companies..

So here we go.....

50. GHOSTHOUSE/WITCHERY (SHOUT FACTORY)Blu-ray...A great double bill finally released to Blu-ray. Both films are well worth checking out.

49. BLACK CAESAR (OLIVE) Blu-ray...Fred Williamson stars in this timeless action classic from director Larry Cohen.

48. THE MUMMY (WARNER) Blu-ray...The Hammer classic from 1959 got the long awaited Blu-ray treatment. A must have for collectors.

47. BOARDING HOUSE (OLIVE) DVD...Shot on video horror that is one of the best of it's kind.

46. BORIS KARLOFF COLLECTION (MILL CREEK DVD...A great collection of the five horror films Karloff made for Columbia. The titles are THE BLACK ROOM, MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG, BEFORE I HANG. THE DEVIL COMMANDS, and THE BOOGIE MAN WILL GET YOU.

45. DEMONOID (VINEGAR SYNDROME) DVD...Great exploitation gem about an evil spirit that possesses the hand of certain people. Gotta love this rare film.

44. THE SENDER (OLIVE) Blu-ray... Strange, but well made film about a strange young man who can project his dreams to other people. A very fun film.

43. THE SENTINEL (SHOUT FACTORY) Blu-ray... I love this film. Made in 1977, this film tells the story of a young woman who moves into a very bizarre apartment house where the people are apparently dead.

42. BLACK CAT MANSION (SINISTER CINEMA) DVD... Excellent 1958 Japanese horror film about the spirits of those killed by a vicious Samurai warrior possessing a cat that then tries to kill a descendant of the Samurai.

41. BLACK VEIL FOR LISA (OLIVE) Blu-ray... This is the US cut of a very good and long unseen mystery film about a narcotics agent who discovers his beautiful wife, who is a criminal is cheating on him and he hires a hit man to kill her. The very beautiful Luciana Paluzzi stars.

Well there are the first 10 in my list. Next Saturday I will have part 2 and if you have any comments, please send them.
