Mill Creek Entertainment Targets Sept. 17 For The Six-Disc Ultraman Ginga Blu-ray Debut

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Wow!   In a word, Wow!!   Mill Creek Entertainment has put together a package that will have “Ultraman” fans leaping for joy on Sept. 17.

On Blu-ray, a six-disc collection — and yes, complete with Digital Copy — you will get two complete Ultraman series, a mini-series and a feature film, all in one collection.   

So let us unpack this and see what treasures Mill Creek Entertainment has included here.   First, we have Ultraman Ginga, the 25th series installment, released in Japan in 2013 and featuring 28 episodes  — this timed to mark the 50th Anniversary of Tsuburaya Productions.

A great war between the Ultramen and the many monsters and aliens that fans of the series have come to know, raged on, but suddenly a mysterious creature put an end to war by turning all of the participants into “Spark Dolls.”   Hikaru Rido (Takuya Negishi) discovers the “Ginga Spark,” which could return both the good and bad to their giant forms … what to do?  What to do, indeed!!
DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey 
Up next is Ultraman Ginga S, which followed in 2014 and features the further adventures of Hikaru Rido as encapsulated in 18 additional episodes.

No sooner had Ultraman Ginga S wrapped up when Tsuburaya Productions returned with a “mini series” of 13 episodes, which was titled Ultra Fight Victory … it’s a little confusing, but fans loved.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyAnd finally, Mill Creek Entertainments this “Ultraman” gift package up with the feature-film, Ultraman Ginga S - The Movie: Showdown! The 10 Ultra Warriors!, which showcases the Ultraman Ginga and Ultraman Victory in their combined efforts to stop the beautiful, but every evil alien Super Dimensional Demon Etelgar.   It is an edge-of-your-seat adventure … the outcome is (without giving anything away here) not a certainty that Ultraman Ginga and Ultraman Victory will prevail.

There you have it.   Sept. 17 on Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment!

Bayview Entertainment Teams With For The Sept. 1 Launch Of The HNN Presents DVD Line Of Products

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Bayview Entertainment did something really cool for genre fans.   They’ve teamed up with to launch a line of DVD products that will go under the “HNN Presents” promotional banner.

The first of these will arrive on Sept. 1 as DVD debuts.

The way the partnership works, will use its fan base and expertise in the subject of all things horror to recruit filmmakers from all around the world to submit their films for consideration.   The pick of the crop will be packaged and promoted for release to home entertainment marketplace through Bayview Entertainment’s distribution network.   Sounds like a win-win for all.

As promotes it, they are looking for films that are, “slasher, zombie, monster, found footage, apocalyptic, grindhouse, torture, gore, vampire, suspense, etc.,” which sounds like a pretty rich hunting ground to find indie filmmakers to deliver their latest cinematic visions.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyThe first in the new “HNN Presents” program will be from the filmmaking team of Christian Twiste & Geoffrey Ciani, with both filling multiple roles in the production of Master Pieces, which will be available, as mentioned, on DVD this coming Sept. 1.

The pair share producing, directing and writing credits, while Christian Twiste (who has a strong resemblance and acting mannerism of a young Scott Bakula) stars in the film, Ciani also handled the editing and cinematography.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
It’s not their first rodeo, as they previously teamed for the Edgar Allan Poe adaptation of Berenice in 2004 … Twiste is a computer programmer, novelist and semi-professional racecar driver when not making genre films, while Ciani hosts the YouTube webisode series of Wow Lynch Wow! (over 3.4 million views dedicated to filmmaker David Lynch … among other things).

As to Master Pieces, Christian Twiste is, well, playing himself — or just “self” — and he is out of a job, which his new bride, “The Wife” (Lisa Goulian) is constantly nagging him to get out there and find something.   

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyBut our boy is content to spend his time calling into a self-help radio program run by Dr. Brenda Dobbs (Tesia Nicoli), but is constantly frustrated by the process.   Eventually he snaps from the frustration and goes on a murder spree … or, maybe it is all in his mind.   Madness for sure, with a nifty blend of humor and gore, exactly what genre fans adore.

Going internationally, the other film arriving under the “HNN Presents” banner on Sept. 1 is Italian filmmaker Dario Almerighi’s Me and The Devil.

Here we find Mario (Antonio De Nitto), who has lost his fiancée in a tragic “accident” during their vacation together … as a result his world devolves into a nightmarish world of visions and death.

Me and The Devil is presented in Italian with English subtitles.

Paramount Home Media Picks Sept. 8 For The DVD Rollout Of Bull: Season Four

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Paramount Home Media will be teaming up with CBS Home Entertainment on Sept. 8 for the DVD release of Bull: Season Four.   

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, there had been 16 episodes broadcast and the show was busy shooting in New York City.    As with many productions, the series was forced to shutter with 20 of the 22 schedule episodes in the can.   The broadcast season was completed with the remaining four episode, which left the season somewhat up in the air.  
Fans then held their breath, would there be a season five?   Season just ended … so what happened?   Tick tock, tick tock and the news arrived, yes!!   Season five is in the works!!!

The casework at TAC (Trial Analysis Corporation) for Dr. Jason Bull (Michael Weatherly) gets intense this season — and don’t forget the personal issues with his associate, Benny Colón (Freddy Rodríguez), over Bull’s relationship with Benny’s sister, Isabella — as Bull’s cases range from a gentleman’s club assault, to manslaughter, corporate infighting and a murder being shielded by diplomatic immunity … you name it, and Bull and the TAC are on the case!!  

Cleopatra Entertainment Tabs Sept. 29 For The DVD Debut Of Director Julian Richards' Daddy's Girl

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Which would you prefer?   The frying pan or the fire, an age-old question that takes on new meaning on Sept. 29 with Cleopatra Entertainment, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, releases director Julian Richards’ Daddy’s Girl on DVD.

Zoe (Jemma Dallender — I Spit on Your Grave 2, Disappearance, The Executioners) is faced with exactly that, the “frying pan” when her whack-job of a stepfather, John Stone (Costas Mandylor — as Kenny in the Picket Fences TV series, plus such films as Virtuosity, Mobsters, The Pledge and as Hoffman in a number of the Saw films), makes her his emotional prisoner and “helper.”   

The “fire” part is her “beloved” stepfather is a vicious, sadistic serial killer.   Seriously, he sweet-talks pretty young things into coming back to his place so that he can torture and kill them.   Zoe is forced, it seems (no giving away plot elements here), to become part of his lifestyle.

The pattern works like this, he brings a young woman back to his place (picked up at a local bar), who is locked up and prepped to be “worked” on.   Enter Zoe, who offers the latest victim a choice.   Kill yourself, or suffer at the hands of my stepfather an unimaginable death.
DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey

What happens when one of these young women picks option three — fight back!  What happens when a local cop begins to notice patterns and starts asking questions?   What happens?   A third act that makes Daddy’s Girl unique; a one-of-a-kind serial killer/horror film gem!!

Sept. 29, on DVD from Cleopatra Entertainment … be sure to check it out.
