And... we’re back! My wife Sarah and I spent the long holiday weekend here in the States up in rustic Portland, Oregon, where—through the power of the Interwebs—I officiated my niece’s wedding. It was a lovely ceremony, a wonderful trip, and a good time was had by all, as they say.

But, while I was away, The Bits’ team turned in a bunch of great new disc reviews, including...

Stephen’s take on The Incredible Melting Man (1977) in 4K UHD, and Creature from Black Lake (1976), the Vampyr: Limited Edition (1932), and Fire in the Sky (1993) on Blu-ray.

Tim’s thoughts on The Beast (1988) and The Black Phone (2021) on Blu-ray, and Child’s Play (1988) in 4K UHD.

And Dennis’ look at Bright Victory (1951), The Last Train from Madrid (1937), and Samson and the 7 Miracles of the World (1961) all on Blu-ray.

As always, lots more new disc reviews are on the way over the coming days so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for them.

We’ve also got some pretty significant catalog 4K release news to catch you all up on this afternoon, and some TV Blu-ray news too... [Read on here...]

We’re back as promised this evening with more upcoming catalog 4K Ultra HD news and rumors from our studio, industry, and retail sources. Keep in mind, some of these titles are not yet officially announced, so the dates and details are subject to change.

First of all, this is a title we’ve known is coming for a few months now and while it’s not yet been officially announced by the studio, we do have the final cover artwork from retailers: Universal Studios Home Entertainment is expected to release their Universal Classic Monsters: Icons of Horror Collection – Volume 2 box set in 4K Ultra HD on 10/11.

The set will include The Mummy (1932), The Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Phantom of the Opera (1943), and Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954). You can see the cover artwork at left and also below.

It’s also believed that the titles in the studio’s Volume 1 set—Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), The Wolf Man (1941), and The Invisible Man (1932)—will finally be released as single-film SKUs, for sure in the UK and possibly in the US as well. We’ll post more as soon as the studio makes any of this official. [Read on here...]
