Afternoon, folks. It’s a slow news day on the home video front, so we just have a couple things for you...
First, Tim has turned in another good Blu-ray review for you to check out, this one featuring a look at Scream Factory’s new box set, The Paul Naschy Collection. Naschy was a prolific Spanish actor, writer, and director of horror cinema, with a LONG filmography. If you’re new to his work, Scream’s box set is a great place to start. The 5-disc set includes Horror Rises from the Tomb (1975 – aka El Espanto Surge de la Tumba), Vengeance of the Zombies (1975 – aka La Rebelión de las Muertas), Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll (1976 – aka Los Ojos Azules de la Muñeca Rota), Human Beasts (1980 – aka El Carnaval de las Bestias), and Night of the Werewolf (1981 – aka El Retorno del Hombre Lobo). Do give it a look. [Read on here…]
