We have four new disc reviews for you to enjoy today, as follows...

Stephen has taken a look at Vinegar Syndrome’s new 4K Ultra HD double feature release of Schizoid and X-Ray here at The Bits, each an early 1980s B-grade slasher film.

Stephen has also reviewed Tom DeSimone’s Reform School Girls (1986) from Vinegar Syndrome, as well as George Marshall and Edward F. Cline’s You Can’t Cheat an Honest Man (1939) from Kino Lorber Studio Classics, each on standard Blu-ray.

And finally, Tim has checked in with a look at the Blu-ray 3D release of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania from Sony Pictures Animation.

As always, more reviews are on the way this week so be sure to check back for them. [Read on here...]

By the way, we mentioned Imprint’s July slate yesterday, but don’t forget about their fine June line-up of historical classics, which is set to include Barabbas (1961), Julius Caesar (1970), The Nelson Affair (1973), Damn the Defiant! (1962), A Night to Remember (1958), and The Long Ships (1964) on Blu-ray on 6/29.

Also, retail sources are hinting that Shout! and Scream Factory will release a Species: Collector’s Edition on 4K Ultra HD on 7/26 (though do keep in mind, it has not yet been officially announced).

And the BFI has officially set Get Carter (1971) for Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD release on 7/25 in the UK. You can see that below as well (with a link to Amazon.co.uk). Thanks to Bits reader Josh J-F for the heads-up!

Finally today, it’s come to our attention that Arrow Video’s recent 4K UHD release of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys has a series of shots included out of order. You can see a comparison with the Universal Blu-ray on YouTube here. Thanks to Bits reader Demetrios P. for alerting us to this. We’re told that Arrow Video is aware of the issue and will presumably move to correct it.

We’ll leave you with a look at the cover artwork for several titles mentioned above, with the relevant Amazon links if available...

Everything Everywhere All at Once (4K Ultra HD) Everything Everywhere All at Once (Blu-ray Disc) The Contractor (4K Ultra HD)

For Me and My Gal (Blu-ray Disc) Ziegfeld Girl (Blu-ray Disc) Grease 2: 40th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray Disc)

Get Carter (BFI UK release) (4K Ultra HD)

Stay tuned!
