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!
My Coffee Shop of Horrors order has arrived! Been shopping from this great horror themed online coffee store for years! Best part is, it’s not just gimmicky names, but their coffee blends are really delicious and they have a large variety. I ordered two of my favorites, La LLorona, which is a medium roast, Mexican Altura coffee and Burial Grounds, which is a dark roast blend of coffee beans from Latin America, Africa, and Indonesia. Then I tried Le Petit Mort, for the first time, which is a blend of sweet medium roast Colombian Supremo coffee mixed with French vanilla. Yum!

ELYSIAN PUMPKIN STOUT W/ FRIGHT NIGHT 1&2 and VAMP!
Grabbed a bunch of different single bottles of pumpkin ales to try at my local Total Wine. First up, Elysian Dark of the Moon Pumpkin Stout. This is a hearty blend of pumpkin, chocolate & coffee flavors. Very rich, thick & flavorful. Not much of a stout person myself, but this is interesting. I probably should have watched a couple of werewolf flicks with this, considering the name, but was in the mood for vampires, 80s style!
