HORRORS ARE NEVER
ability of DVD to make you truly feel and experience a movie is no more
apparent than with horror or thrillers. Digital sound and visual effects are
so perfect for horror - feel the spine-tingling fear creep its way up your
body and into your mind in an adrenalin-rushed month of DVD releases that will
remain embedded in your memory forever. Indulge in the full appalling gore of
the horror blockbusters this November that include Pitch Black, Sleepwalkers,
Tremors, Village of the Damned and Fright
Reviewers raved so
much about this Aliens-esq movie, with its incredible photography and special
effects; exceeding $2 million at the Australian Box Office. It is an
incredibly unusual, suspense-filled and entirely frightening adventure into
the last hours of survival before darkness hits and brings with it a nightmare
of death and destruction. A passenger spacecraft carrying a dangerous criminal
crash lands on a desert planet populated only by light sensitive subterranean
flying beasts – how will the passengers survive when the eclipse falls,
pitch black engulfs them and the beasts need to feed? And then there’s
Riddick (played by Vin Diesel - Saving
Private Ryan) the deadly convicted murderer to contend with – will he or
won’t he kill you while you sleep?
the world master of horror and suspense, Stephen King’s Sleepwalkers
is awoken and brought to gratuitous glory in full DVD style. Charles Brady
(Brian Krause) and his mother Mary (Alice Krige) are the last of a dying breed
whose needs are not of this world. They are sleepwalkers
who stay alive only by feeding on the life force of the innocent. When young
and beautiful Tanya (Madchen Amick) meets Charles, she thinks she’s found
the man of her dreams. But when his lust overpowers her, Charles’ fatal
charm climaxes in fatal harm. Another terrifying leap into the world of the
night brought fantastically to life – or death – by DVD special effects.
With its crystal visual image and surround sound you’ll completely lose
yourself to the lure of the sleepwalkers – and never want to sleep again.
Village of the
satanic and chilling version of the sci-fi classic from John Carpenter - one
of the most acclaimed suspense writers - stunned an entire generation of movie
goers and has been likened to epics like The
Omen and Rosemary’s Baby. Now it’s here in full digital supremacy on DVD
this November. An invisible force invades a sleepy coastal town and 10 women
are impregnated – but with what? Christopher Reeve and Kirstie Alley, the
town’s scientist and doctor, join forces as the women’s simultaneous
births unleash a storm of terror on the village. And that horror comes in the
form of emotionless and deadly offspring with psychic powers – all dead-set
on a trail of destruction. Thrilling DVD features include talent profiles,
production notes, film trailer and weblinks. If you were scared when you read
the book or Village of the Damned on
the big screen – be prepared to utterly terrorise yourself with the
potential that DVD brings to this all-consuming horror.
A star-studded cast includes Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Stephen Geoffreys and Roddy McDowall in this epic horror released in frightening proportions on DVD. Charley’s life is boring - fuelled only by an addiction to late-night horror films - until a spate of bizarre killings convince him that his neighbour Jerry (Chris Sarandon) is a serial killer; a killer who slaughters his victims by sucking their blood. Desperate Charley arms himself with ally, Peter, (Roddy McDowall) a former horror film star and host of TV’s Fright Night Theatre, in their quest to destroy an ingenious and scheming vampire. They were completely unprepared for the ramifications of their quest as the Fright Night-mare really takes hold. The digital features of this DVD, including theatrical trailer and talent profiles, give you the full and gory inside info on the most frightening night of your life.
Starring Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward this Collector’s Edition of an adrenalin-filled action horror is a must for any horror enthusiast, with full DVD effects to last you a lifetime of sleepless nights. The 53 minute "Making of Featurette", along with production notes included on this disc may offer some comfort as it unfolds how certain aspects of the story were created. Talent profiles of the cast and crew may also calm you down, but your fear will be brought back by the movie's trailer and a feature trailer for Tremors II…
