We’ve got two more new disc reviews for you today here at The Bits...

Stephen has taken a look at The Films of Doris Wishman: The Twilight Years on Blu-ray from AGFA, Something Weird, and Vinegar Syndrome, a three-disc set that includes seven exploitation films that Wishman directed between 1970 and 1977.

And Dennis has turned in his thoughts on Gordon Hessler’s The Oblong Box (1969), an American International Pictures film on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

As for today’s release news, let’s start with the big announcement up front: Lionsgate has just officially set Russell Mulcahy’s Highlander: Director’s Cut (1986) for release on 4K Ultra HD on 12/13, just as we expected.

Based on a new restoration done by StudioCanal, the disc will feature Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10 high dynamic range, along with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound.

Two versions will be available, a wide release 4K in Amaray packaging and a Best Buy-exclusive Steelbook. Each will include the film on Ultra HD and Blu-ray, along with a selection of four art cards. [Read on here...]

We’ve got a trio of Blu-rays for you to enjoy today...

First up, Tim’s Halloween Hangover review is none other than Dan Curtis’ 1976 Burnt Offerings, now available on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

I’ve also posted a pair of Blu-ray reviews of my own looking atSony’s new The Fifth Element: Cinema Series and Léon: The Professional – Cinema Series. Both discs arrived in stores on Tuesday and are worth a look. Note that each title is available in deluxe “clear case” packaging and also regular Blu-ray cases. The regular versions are the exact same discs for less money – only the packaging is different. See the reviews for all the details.  [Read on here…]
