Ghost Stories
Blu-ray | DVD
Directors: Andy Nyman, Jeremy Dyson
Screenwriters: Andy Nyman, Jeremy Dyson
Cast: Andy Nyman, Paul Whitehouse, Alex Lawther, Martin Freeman, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Paul Warren
Distributor: Scream Factory | IFC Midnight
Not Rated | 98 Minutes
Release Date: September 4, 2018

“Everything is exactly as it seems.”

Written and directed by Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson, Ghost Stories is an atmospheric, impeccably crafted British horror anthology that subverts genre conventions while delivering legitimate chills. Adapted from their stage play, the film sees Nyman (of The Commuter and Death at a Funeral) reprising his role as Phillip Goodman, a well-known professor who has devoted his life to exposing phony psychics and supernatural shenanigans.

A debunker of all things paranormal, Goodman believes that it is his life’s work to stop people’s lives from being ruined by superstition. He receives an invitation to visit a famed 1970s paranormal investigator, Charles Cameron (Leonard Byrne), who inspired him as a kid, but disappeared decades ago. Now living as a sick and impoverished old man, Cameron asks Goodman to investigate a few unsolved cases of supposedly real ghost sightings.

Cast: James Karen, Thom Mathews, Dana Ashbrook, Suzanne Snyder, Michael Kenworthy, Marsha Dietlein, Phil Bruns

Written and directed by Dan O’Bannon (screenwriter of Alien, Dead and Buried), 1985’s punk rock horror-comedy The Return of the Living Dead is known for introducing the concept of zombies feeding on human brains, as opposed to just eating flesh. The wildly entertaining film tells the story of how a warehouse owner, his two bumbling employees, a mortician, and a group of teenage punks deal with a horde of zombies.

O’Bannon’s film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $14 million domestically on an estimated budget of $4 million. The cult classic spawned four sequels, including 1988’s Return of the Living Dead Part II, written and directed by Ken Wiederhorn (Shock Waves, Eve of a Stranger).

‘House On Haunted Hill’ Remake Coming To Blu-ray From Scream Factory

House on Haunted Hill (1999)

1999’s House on Haunted Hill, a remake of the 1959 movie of the same name starring Vincent Price and directed by William Castle, is not exactly considered a good movie. It sits at 28% on both Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. But in this particular case none of that matters as I, along with many others, love it.

A while back I decided I needed to add it to my Blu-ray collection, and was rather surprised to discover it was not available for some reason—at least not here in the States. This surprise turned to confused shock when I found out that while the remake was not on Blu-ray yet, its 2007 sequel Return to House on Haunted Hill somehow was. You’d think they’d at least bundle the two together, but nope.

Now comes word that the 1999 House on Haunted Hill is finally making its way to Blu-ray thanks to Scream Factory later this year. You can find more information below.
