Mill Creek Entertainment has tabbed Oct. 21 as the street date for a double-disc helping of the short-lived Sarah Jessica Parker 1982 sitcom, Square Pegs: The Complete Series. The SRP is a sweet $9.98!!!
The eight kids at Weemawee High School that the series focuses on — in addition to a pre-Sex and the City Parker — include Amy Linker (D.A.R.Y.L.), John Femia, Merritt Butrick (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock), Tracy Nelson (as Sister “Steve” in the Father Dowling Mysteries TV series), Jon Caliri, Claudette Wells and Jami Gertz (Emmy-nominated for Ally McBeal, plus such films as Twister, The Lost Boys, etc.).
Also added to the October release calendar — with an eye towards the Halloween promotional period — are two new priced-to-own collections (just $9.98 each). On Oct. 21 look for Dark Secrets: 4 Movie Set, which includes as part of the double-disc set director John Mangold’s 2003 horror thriller Identity (with John Cusack, Ray Liotta and Amanda Peet), Vacancy (2007, with Kate Beckinsale, Luke Wilson and Frank Whaley), Perfect Stranger (2007, Bruce Willis, Halle Berry and Giovanni Ribisi) and writer/director David Ondaatje’s 2009 film adaptation of the Marie Belloc Lowndes’ novel, The Lodger (with Alfred Molina and Hope Davis).
Also on the 21st of October is the double disc set titled Where Evil Lives: 6 Movie Collection. Included here are Devour (2005, Jensen Ackles, Shannyn Sossamon and Dominique Swain), writer/director Michelle MacLaren’s occult thriller, Population 436 (starring Jeremy Sisto and Charlotte Sullivan), director Kate Robbins’ 2006 sci-fi chiller about invading aliens cleverly disguised as nurses, Candy Stripers, Incubus (2006 with Tara Reid), director Gregory Jacobs’ ghostly thriller, Wind Chill (starring Emily Blunt) and writer/director Paul Andrew Williams’ 2008 mixed-genre horror/thriller, The Cottage (Jennifer Ellison).
Lastly, if you love your end-of-the-world disaster flicks, then the Oct. 14 DVD release of TV Guide Spotlight: Made-For-TV Disasters will be right up your alley. In something of an “earth, wind and fire” them for just $9.98 genre fans get Flood (with Robert Carlyle, Jessalyn Gilsig and Tom Courtenay), Flood: A River's Rampage (Richard Thomas and Kate Vernon battle the mighty Mississippi), Aftershock: Earthquake In New York (the big one hits New York … with Tom Skerritt, Sharon Lawrence and Jennifer Garner) and Tornado!
