Yesterday 5/26 was the birthday of the immortal Peter Cushing and today 5/27 is the birthday of not only the legendary Christopher Lee, but, the incomparable Vincent Price as well! Three of the greatest horror icons of all time! Coincidence…I THINK NOT!!!
Ordered these fun Halloween III inspired wall decorations from Ryan Dowell Art in a special St. Patrick’s Day 🍀 set…Conal Cochran was Irish after all!…and they arrived today! It may be close to March 17th, but it’s Halloween 🎃 all year round at MonsterZero NJ’s!
The cult classic slasher Just Before Dawn came out on a new edition blu-ray on 1/12/21 and mine arrived from Amazon today! It’s currently only $19.95 and comes with a nice selection of extras. Not only does it have the original uncut version, but an extended international cut that is about 10 minutes longer. It has interviews from 2019 with cast members Gregg Henry, Chris Lemmon and Jamie Rose, along with Producer David Sheldon. It also features a vintage featurette with actors Chris Lemmon, Jamie Rose and John Hunsaker, along with co-writer Mark Arywitz and producer David Sheldon. Last but not least, it includes the original trailer. There will be a full review for the disc once I get to check it out, but it already sounds like a bargain!
Check out MonsterZero NJ’s review for this flick here
MonsterZero NJ’s Movie Madhouse wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! OK, so there aren’t a lot of horror films set on Turkey Day, but here’s a few, even if they aren’t all classics. Grindhouse for the obvious reason of enjoying Eli Roth’s legendary faux trailer and Galaxy of Terroris a personal addition, because I saw it on Thanksgiving night, 11/26/1981 at my beloved Oritani Theater in Hackensack, N.J. Have a happy and be safe! Gobble, gobble!
My copy of Haunt on special edition blu-ray arrived today in the mail. Loved this underrated Halloween flick and so happy it’s finally gotten the release it deserves from the great folks at Ronin Flix!
