“You haven’t got a prayer…”

Directed by Cuban-American filmmaker Camilo Vila (Resurrection Blvd.), 1988’s The Unholy is a cheesy ’80s ripoff of ’70s “prestige horror” films like The Exorcist, The Omen, and The Sentinel. Now available on Blu-ray thanks to Lionsgate’s Vestron Video Collector’s Series, this demonic possession flick is concerned with Catholic priests, young and old alike, doing spiritual battle with a sexy-but-demonic force.

Writers: Vernon Stallings, Melvin Shaw, Carl Fallberg, Chuck Couch, Ralph Wright
Cast: Hardy Albright, Peter Behn, Tim Davis, Donnie Dugan, Ann Gillis
Distributor: Disney Studios
Rated G | 70 Minutes
Blu-ray Release Date: June 6th, 2017

75 years ago, a young white tailed deer named Bambi frolicked into the hearts of America. Disney’s Bambi celebrates his diamond anniversary with a brand new anniversary edition Blu-ray from the Walt Disney Signature Collection that arrived in stores last week. The film introduced viewers to Bambi, his friends Thumper the rabbit and Flower the skunk, and shows the trials and tribulations of these woodland animals as they navigate childhood, love, and loss. The film features one of the most heart wrenching scenes in film history as Bambi’s mother is shot dead by a hunter. This scene was so impactful that the American Film Institute listed “man” as their #20 greatest villain in their 100 Years… 100 Heroes and Villains list. Bambi overcomes, and soon the animals grow up, fall in love, and live happily ever after.

Beauty and the Beast
Blu-ray
Director: Bill Condon
Screenwriter: Stephen Chbosky, Evan Spiliotopoulos
Based on the original screenplay by Linda Woolverton
Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson
Distributor: Disney Studios
Rated PG | 129 Minutes
Blu-ray Release Date: June 6th, 2017

Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast has already grossed close to $1.2 billion worldwide, and it debuted in theaters less than 3 months ago! The film received rave reviews from critics and fans alike. It somehow managed to retain the magic and aura of the 1991 animated Best Picture nominee (the first ever animated film to receive the honor), all the while breathing new wonder into the timeless story. Given 25+ years to review the original classic, the writers and Director Bill Condon covered up some of the continuity errors, and added a few beautiful new songs to mix alongside some of Disney’s most famous tunes like “Be Our Guest” and the titular number. Featuring a star-studded cast headlined by a radiant Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, Beauty and the Beast was one of my favorite films of 2017 thus far, as well as my 6-year old daughter’s, who loved every minute.

Blu-ray Release Date: April 25th, 2017

Zombies are one of the defining characters in horror, alongside vampires, werewolves, and Frankenstein monsters. In the post-The Walking Dead world, writers and filmmakers have tried with various levels of success to create something new and original from a sub genre that can often produce B-level dreck. My favorite film of 2016 was South Korean zombie flick Train to Busan. Just when I thought I had seen it all from zombies, I watched The Girl With All the Gifts, just released in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The film is written by Mike (M.R.) Carey who also penned the novel in 2014.
