MVD Entertainment Group Bestows "Rewind Collection" Status On The Blu-ray Release Of Director Greydon Clark's Joysticks On Feb. 20

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
It is an age-old story in Hollywood.   Filmmaker sees an opportunity — something in the news, something seen on the street … a moment of inspiration — and an indie film goes into production.   It’s always a crap-shoot, win, lose, never make it to exhibition … you just never know.

History records (interview, etc.) that filmmaker Greydon Clark (Satan’s Cheerleaders, Without Warning, The Forbidden Dance, Final Justice, etc.) saw a bunch of teens lined up to play videogames and decided to turn that obsession into a feature film.

The result, the 1983 teen comedy, Joy Sticks!  Or, Joysticks!!   It all depends on how you like to view that double-entendre film title.  

In any case, news arrived this past week that MVD Entertainment Group has elected to make this indie classic a newly minted addition to its popular “Rewind Collection” series of Blu-ray releases.   The induction into the “Rewind Collection” Hall of Fame will take place on Feb. 20, 2024.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
It’s a snapshot in time.  A time when video arcades were the place to be (remember Terminator 2 … that’s where John Connor was hanging out)!   Joy Sticks (or Joysticks) captures the moment perfectly and that’s all that counts.  It is silly, sure, but great fun nonetheless.

Bonus goodies include a newly prepared commentary teaming Cereal at Midnight’s Heath Holland with MVD’s Eric D. Wilkinson and Diabolik DVD's Jesse Nelson — fans one and all.  
Also included with the “Rewind Collection” Blu-ray release are the vintage commentary with filmmaker Greydon Clark, a video session with Clark and the short film titled Coin Slots.

Severin Films Has Tabbed Dec. 12 For The Release Of Danza Macabra, Volume 2: The Italian Gothic Collection Featuring Barbara Steele In Castle Of Blood On 4K Ultra HD

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
If you are a genre fan, or a film buff, or just a lover of movies in general, then put this collection on your shopping list in December.   You don’t even have to know what ALL of these films in the collection are about, you just have to know that screen legend Barbara Steele stars in the focus title and in 4K (Barbara Steele in 4K, think about it) … on that alone, this is a must!!

So what are we banging the drum about?   This would be Severin Films, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, and the Dec. 12 release of Danza Macabra, Volume 2: The Italian Gothic Collection.

Consider everything beyond the three-discs devoted to director Antonio Margheriti’s 1964 release of Castle of Blood (aka: Danza Macabra), starring screen goddess Barbara Steele, bonus materials.   Seriously … Castle of Blood, as presented here by Severin Films, stands on its own.

Released in Italy in 1964 as Danza Macabra, it was picked up by Woolner Brothers Pictures for domestic consumption as an English-dubbed horror release (Castle of Blood) with eight-minutes worth of footage hacked out of it.   It starred Barbara Steele and that was all that mattered.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
Severin Films has new 4K film restorations (that’s the 4K Ultra HD disc) of both films — Danza Macabra and Castle of Blood.   The companion Blu-ray discs individually house Danza Macabra (presented in Italian with English subtitles) and Castle of Blood (that’s three discs in all devoted to just this one film).

Bonus features include a newly prepared commentary with Rod Barnett of “NaschyCast and the Bloody Pit,” who is joined by Adrian Smith.   There are also a selected scene commentary with Barbara Steele and Barbara Steele archivist Russ Lanier and five featurettes — “Exploring the Castle of Blood,” “The Director Who Didn’t Like Blood,” “Enigmatic Elegance: Unveiling the Haunting Legacy of Barbara Steele in the Italian Gothic,” “Return to the Castle” and “Antonio Margheriti Remembers Castle of Blood.”

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
The next two Blu-ray discs in the collection are the 1969 four-part mini-series from actor/writer/director Giorgio Albertazzi, Jekyll.   Remastered from the RAI-TV tape masters and presented with newly prepared English subtitles, Jekyll runs over four hours and includes three companion featurettes as a bonus — “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Albertazzi,” “Building the World of Jekyll,” “The Double Spiral Staircase of Jekyll and Hyde.”

Blu-ray disc number five contains a new 2K restoration (from the best 35mm print elements available) of writer/director Corrado Farina’s long out of print 1971 vampire horror tale titled They Have Changed Their Face.   Starring Adolfo Celi, Giuliano Disperati and Geraldine Hooper, the film is presented in Italian with optional English subtitles.

There are two commentary options.   The first teams director Corrado Farina with Albert Farina, while the second is from author Kat Ellinger (“Daughers of Darkness”).   

Also included are three short films from Corrado Farina — The Son of Dracula, Ring Around the Rosie and The Canticle of the Creatures — the feature-length documentary titled Praised be My Lord and a pair of featurettes — “The Farina Method” and “Bloodsucking Capitalists.”

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
The sixth and final Blu-ray disc in this marvelous collection from Severin Films is writer/director Paolo Lombardo’s 1972 release of The Devil’s Lover.   This is newly scanned (uncut) in 2K from the vault negative.

The Devil’s Lover is presented in Italian with optional English subtitles.   Bonus features include commentary from the host of “Girls, Guts, Giallo,” film scholar Annie Rose Malamet, and two featurettes — “Lady of the Night: The Feminism of Rosalba Neri” and “Out of the Woods.”

Rounding out the material included in the Danza Macabra, Volume 2: The Italian Gothic Collection is a CD soundtrack of The Devil’s Lover.

Shortening all of this down.   Barbara Steele, Severin Films, Dec. 12 … easy.

Bayview Entertainment Sets Nov. 28 As The Domestic Blu-ray Debut Date For Brazilian Filmmaker Rodrigo Lages' Lacuna

 

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
Bayview Entertainment is prepping the domestic Blu-ray debut of writer/director Rodrigo Lages’ Lacuna for delivery on Nov. 28.

This Brazilian horror entry stars Lorena Comparato (Rule 34, Golden Mouth) as Sofia, who appears to be in the middle of some sort of life-crisis as the film opens.   There is a sense of panic as she keeps calling her mother, Helena (played by Kika Kalache), who is driving in traffic and is annoyed that her daughter keeps calling.

That’s how Lages sets up the tension — a tension that he will ratchet up as the story unfolds.   This opening sequence seems like a character establishing segment, nothing more, until Helena drops her phone, and irritated, tries to retrieve it while driving … WHAM! 

We cut to her in the hospital — in a coma — and her daughter, guilt-ridden, tries to make sense of what has happened.  A drama?  No, that's a misdirection.

This is the second step in what will become a very graphic horror tale.   Sofia, begins to suspect that there is something “very off” about her mother after she recovers from the accident-induced coma — very traumatic.   Sofia can’t put her finger on it, but the mystery is certainly there … mom is just not mom!
 
DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
Or, maybe it's all in Sofia's mind?   If you are a genre fan, you just might want to check out what Brazil has to offer — horror-wise — in the form of writer/director Rodrigo Lages’ Lacuna.   
 
This is the sort of film that Hollywood latches onto for a big-budget, star-studded remake.   Lacuna on Blu-ray from Bayview Entertainment on Nov. 28 … presented in Portuguese with English subtitles.

Mill Creek Entertainment Sets Dec. 12 As The DVD Debut Date For Director Shari Rigby's Dove-Approved Divine Influencer

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
If you have watched movies for any length of time, you come to realize that it is all about the story.   Sure, there can be terrific special effects that dazzle and delight, but in the end all of that is just so much cotton candy that is enjoyed and quickly forgotten if there is no story to go along with the noise.

Hollywood these days thinks that noise is good.   That’s sad.

When you get into the faith-based world of filmmaking the same thing holds true.   Without a story, it’s just so much preaching.   Preaching equals noise, and that’s bad.

News arrived this past week that Mill Creek Entertainment has assigned Dec. 12 as the street date for the DVD debut of director Shari Rigby’s Dove-Approved Divine Influencer.

For some, “faith-based” and “Dove-Approved” are non-starters.   Fine, if that’s the case, then you miss out on a terrific performance by Lara Silva (as Eden in The Chosen television series … Making Him Famous, Blue Ridge) as Olivia Golden, a thoroughly shallow and self-centered “social influencer” with something like 300,000 followers.

She’s “Shallow Hal” and “Mean Girls” all rolled into one despicable package.   That’s the key to it.   It’s why Rigby’s Divine Influencer works, not just as a faith-based production, but as a well told story overall.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
The first 20 minutes or so of Divine Influencer can be a rough slog.   Lara Silva is so good at selling Olivia, her character, as a pretentious, rude, shallow, narcissistic individual that you just want to check out.   Her materialistic hedonism is beyond the pale … why waste you time watching a self-centered twit prattle on about the latest accessory she has just acquired.

That’s the set-up and you have to let Silva set the groundwork for what is to follow.   She nails it!!

Everything comes crashing down — we won’t get into all the details, that’s for the viewer discover.   Let’s just say it is a series of events that takes Oliva (Liv) from one disaster (career-wise, life-wise) to the next.   She loses her gig, her parents finally say no and even her “bestie,” Kimberly (Sarah Stipe), shuns her when she neglects Stanley (a surprise).

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
She ends up at the Harvest Rescue Mission, which is run by Ryan (Jason Burkey — They Cloned Tyrone, It’s Christmas Again, Stars Fell on Alabama), a former high school classmate that she had no time for way back then — she was well-off, his mother worked in the cafeteria to make ends meet.   

He doesn’t judge, he opens the place to her, at first as just a place to stay, but she comes around and starts helping out.   But more importantly, the time spent there opens her eyes to the world around her … to faith, to kindness and her heart to a life that was actually passing her by.   Even the shallow can have a second chance.

Mark it down, Dec. 12, on DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment director Shari Rigby’s Divine Influencer, starring Lara Silva … a wonderful story, well told.

Paramount Home Entertainment Looks To Dec. 19 For A Full-Spread Physical Media Launch Of Writer/Director Lindsey Anderson Beer's Pet Sematary: Bloodlines

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
There are mysteries that — sometimes — defy explanation.   

Such is the case with writer/director Lindsey Anderson Beer’s Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, which will be heading to the physical media marketplace courtesy of Paramount Home Entertainment on Dec. 19 as a full-spread array of buying selections.

Back in 2019, the directing team of Kevin K├Âlsch and Dennis Widmyer delivered a successful reboot of Stephen King’s 1983 novel, Pet Sematary.   It was all the buzz, so a follow-up — a prequel, if you will — was discussed, but the filmmakers bailed and that looked like the end of it.

Almost two years passed and then suddenly the much talked about prequel was back on the production schedule.  In the summer of 2021 the film, Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, went into production.  And then silence.

Nothing in 2022 … and finally it makes its debut at Fantastic Fest in September of this year.   For two years it was in limbo and then it just arrives, but instead of a follow-up theatrical launch during the Halloween promotional period, it went direct to streaming on Paramount+ on Oct. 6.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
So unless you were lucky enough to be at Fantastic Fest, or a subscriber to Paramount+, the Dec. 19 street date for DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD editions of Pet Sematary: Bloodlines will be the first opportunity for genre fans to get a legitimate look at Beer’s film.

We say, “legitimate,” because the “helper” community was quick to pounce on the streaming window to deliver Blu-ray editions of their own — with professional-quality packaging — within hours of the film’s rollout.

What remains a mystery is the full-spread launch by Paramount Home Entertainment.   You spend four years in pre-production, production and then post (editing, sound, etc.) and then take the final product direct to streaming, but also deliver a 4K Ultra HD edition?   

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
It just seems odd for a direct-to-video release to get the 4K-treatment.   Like we said, some mysteries just defy explanation.   Ignore all that and just enjoy Paramount Home Entertainment’s Pet Sematary: Bloodlines on Dec. 19 or DVD, or Blu-ray … or 4K Ultra HD!!

The home entertainment versions come loaded with about an hour’s worth of production featurettes (five in all) — “Origins,” “Fresh Blood,” “Death’s Design,” “Method to the Madness” and “War Comes Home.”

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment Targets Dec. 12 As The Street Date For Director Gareth Edwards AI Sci-Fi Thriller The Creator

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey, @dvdblurayreport
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has selected Dec. 12 as the street date for a full-spread of director Gareth Edwards’ AI sci-fi thriller, The Creator.

The ARR comes in at 74 days and domestic box office receipts — against a report production budget of $80 million (Rebecca Rubin reporting in Variety on Sept. 27, 2023) — came in at $38.9 million.

Planned for physical media distribution are stand-alone DVD and Blu-ray editions, plus a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack presentation.

This 20th Century Studios production will also have a Nov. 14 VOD (rental and/or sales) window of Nov. 14, which will give the “helper” community a 30-day selling period of their own to supply Blu-ray editions to eager genre fans (slick packaging) who either don’t know or don’t care that what they are purchasing is a knock-off.   

The quality of these bootlegged Blu-ray editions will be good since the studio is willingly supplying a pristine master of the film prior to the physical media street date.   The “helper” community — just the domestic contingent (forget China, Sri Lanka and other exotic points of origin) — has gotten very good at supplying packaging that can easily fool unsuspecting consumers.

The bonus feature included with The Creator is a feature-length “making of” documentary titled “True Love: Making The Creator.”
