We’re kicking the new week off with more Hell Plaza Oktoberfest from Dr. Jahnke. Today’s BD review from Adam is a great one: Scream Factory’s The Vincent Price Collection II, which streets tomorrow. Don’t miss it!

Also here at The Bits today, our own Michael Coate takes time in his new History, Legacy & Showmanship column to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction by hosting a roundtable interview with a trio of great film historians. Can you believe it’s been twenty years since the film’s debut in October of 1994? Crazy.  [Read on here…]

We have just a couple quick title announcements for you today...
