Well these are my ten top pics for DVD releases of the year....
10. SHE DEVIL (OLIVE) Obscure horror film from the 1950's finally given a release by Olive. Mari Blanchard and Albert Dekker star.
9. FIRE MAIDENS OF OUTER SPACE (OLIVE) Another long forgotten gem from the 50's from Olive. Many people consider this to be a total waste of time, however I was overjoyed to see it finally get a Blu-ray/DVD release.
8. WORLD WAR Z (PARAMOUNT) The only Brad Pitt movie you'll probably ever see on any list of this blog. Good zombie thriller about a world wide plague and the efforts to stop it.
7. SHANKS (OLIVE) This company is turning out so many obscure films this year. This William Castle film is truly one of the most bizarre ever. A mime learns to control the dead thru his late friends strange device. One of a kind.
6. WITCHBOARD 2 (OLIVE) In the Top 10 Olive has five films, and this is the fourth. Sexy Ami Dolenz is a young woman who moves into an apartment and is haunted by evil spirits. Excellent Blu-Ray release.
5. BLACK DEVIL DOLL FROM HELL/TALES FROM THE QUADEAD ZONE (MASSACRE VIDEO) Finally these two obscure shot on video horror films from Chester Turner are made available on DVD!! Must be seen to be believed!!
4. NWO THE REVOLUTION (WWE) Pro wrestling was never better than in the mid 90's when this heel organization took the wrestling world by storm. This is the three disc story of what happened. Simply the best wrestling DVD of the year.
3. THE CONJURING (WARNER) A modern ay film made in 2013 that actually scared the hell out of me. This is good film making which is very rare these days. Watch out for Annebell!!
2. DR. JEKYLL AND THE WOLFMAN/VAMPIRE'S NIGHT ORGY (CODE RED) Excellent double feature which finally brings the UNCUT version of Dr. Jekyll and The Wolfman to DVD. The only company that ever carried it before this release was Sinister Cinema. Both movies look very, very good and it makes for a fantastic euro horror double feature.
And now the number one DVD release of the year goes to a film that I have waited for for about 6 years to come to DVD...
1. TICKS (OLIVE) yes Olive brings us this big bug movie that is full of action, gore and the always sexy Ami Dolenz. What more could a horror fan want??
There you are...my top picks for the year 2013. Comments are always welcome.
I have to give honorable mention to two films that weren't included in the list and both are from Olive. They are "THE ENFORCER" starring Humphrey Bogart and "PLUNDER ROAD" starring Gene Raymond.
