“The Elf” Is Coming To A Shelf Near You

by Peter Paltridgeon October 3, 2017
Let’s be honest. When you first heard about the whole concept for an “Elf on the Shelf,” didn’t it sound more creepy than endearing? A stiff doll whose watchful eyes are always on your children? What kind of sick mind thought that one up? Uncork’d Entertainment had the right idea when they mutated the concept […]

Shout Releases The Final Classic MST3K DVD Set This Fall

by Peter Paltridgeon August 4, 2017
How many DVD sets do you think it would take to print the entire original run of Mystery Science Theater 3000, minus the inaccessible KTMA pre-episodes? Apparently, it would take about 42. But we’re only getting 39. Shout Factory has announced the very last MST3K volume will be released this November. It’s taken a long […]

Don't Breathe

Exclusive Clip From The Home Video Release Of Don’t Breathe

by Peter Paltridgeon November 4, 2016
Sony Pictures’ Don’t Breathe was considered the high point of the 2016 horror movie lineup — we’ve got two months to go, but anything topping it in this period is unlikely. Now it’s coming to Blu-Ray, DVD and cloud vapor, loaded with behind-the-scenes content and deleted scenes. To drum up hype, Sony has released one […]

This Trailer Is Full Of Moggy Creatures

by Peter Paltridgeon November 2, 2016
Filmmaker Scott Frazelle has just released the first trailer for his upcoming horror-flick Moggy Creatures. It’s about a young couple who takes in a stray cat…..that may not actually be a cat, but they don’t seem to notice. It’s completely hairless, but there are hairless breeds of cats out there, so they must’ve figured it […]

DVD And Blu-Ray Extras: Where Did They Go?

by Johnny Capson April 20, 2016
I was first introduced to DVDs by my high school girlfriend.

One thing I can thank her for, though, is my love of […]

by Peter Paltridgeon December 6, 2015
There are DVD sets, and then there’s what Shout Factory gifted to Freaks and Geeks. This one-season show got the most elaborate treatment I’ve ever seen for any series released on a home video format. There was hours upon hours of behind-the-scenes footage, from raw dailies to the cast members’ home movies. I would wager […]

Dear Mr. Michaels: My name is Johnny Caps. I’m a writer and a lover of retro culture, especially that of the 1980s. I was first exposed to “Saturday Night Live” on Comedy Central in the 90s. The episodes that first made an impression on me came from seasons 6 through 10. I eventually came to […]

Why the DVD Just Won’t Die

by Kelly Hartmanon September 11, 2013
I love DVDs. DVDs are resilient, they let me skip right to where I want, and I can hoard many more DVD titles in the same space than with VHS. But not everyone shares my feelings. It’s obvious by the recent trends in new high tech goodies that someone wants the DVD to die. New […]
