Halloween Hangover – 2015 (The Leftovers!)

Well… Halloween Hangover took its toll this year, but thankfully, I escaped it with plenty of coffee and support from our readers. Hopefully, you enjoyed it and we did our bit to honor the past Halloween review work of longtime Bits staff writer Adam Jahnke. So thanks for tuning in – we really appreciate it. (Note that you can find all the reviews listed here, and they’re also in our regular review index here.)

In the frenzy of review madness, I actually collected so many possible titles for review that I had a few good ones left over. There were also a couple titles that arrived too late to be included in the regular Hangover line-up.  [Read on here...]

Halloween Hangover! – 2015

We all miss Dr. Jahnke here at The Digital Bits, especially his annual Oktoberfest reviews during the Halloween season. So since I'm a big fan of horror movies myself, we’re going to carry on that tradition in the same spirit, but mix it up a bit. I’ll be spending the month reviewing not just the newest horror titles currently hitting the market, but also some others that we haven’t covered here previously and that you might have overlooked (all of which are well worth your time and hard-earned cash). It should be a lot of fun and we hope you’ll join us all month long for it Hopefully, I’ll still be standing afterwards… having a Halloween Hangover.  [Read on here...]

The Hell Plaza Oktoberfest 8!

Where does the time go?

One day, you’re just a young lad picking up your first kitchen knife, learning to sew gloves with blades on them or masks made out of human flesh, maybe drowning in your favorite camp’s lake. The next thing you know, years have gone past. You’ve stabbed, chopped and otherwise mutilated so many horny teenagers that the act itself has lost all meaning. You almost start to look forward to being doused with gasoline and set ablaze, just to break the monotony.  [Read on here...]

We’re closing out the week with a bunch more interesting bits of announcement and release news, and a little bit of detail on some already announced upcoming titles. And just to let you know… if you come back here on Monday, you’ll find Dr. Adam Jahnke’s epic Blu-ray review of CBS’s Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery box set! So don’t miss it.

Now then… let’s get to some good announcement news. Are any of you fans of Sergio Leone and/or Spaghetti Westerns? If so, you’ll be pleased to hear that MGM is finally releasing Leone’s Duck, You Sucker (a.k.a. A Fistful of Dynamite, a.k.a. Once Upon a Time in the Revolution) on Blu-ray Disc on 10/7 (SRP $19.99). You can pre-order it here on Amazon. Now if we could just get The Colossus of Rhodes from WHV, we’d have nearly all of the key Leone classics. [Read on here…]

The Hell Plaza Oktoberfest Se7en!

About a month ago, I received an anonymous package.  Well, anonymous except for The Digital Bits logo in the return address and a single word scrawled across the side: “GLUTTONY”.

“What’s in the box?” I yelled out loud to nobody in particular.  I opened it and was horrified by its contents.  It was full of DVDs and Blu-rays, all horror movies.  Oh, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s severed head, which I thought was kind of odd.  [...]
