FRIGHT AT HOME: August 27th’s DVD & Blu-ray Releases!

FAH
Today may not be a massive day for home video for some people, but most people have not been introduced to the insane fun of I COME IN PEACE (or DARK ANGEL, whichever floats your Lundgren boat). It’s something of a miracle that Scream Factory’s brought it to Blu-ray, and a testament to how incredible they are. Also out from Scream & Shout Factory are Larry Cohen’s Q: THE WINGED SERPENT on Blu-ray, Charles Bronson & Lee Marvin’s western team-up DEATH HUNT, an action-packed double feature of THE BARBARIANS and THE NORSEMAN, and last but not least Season 3 of THE WALKING DEAD from Anchor Bay.

I’ve attached artwork and links below to purchase if you so desire!


FRIGHT AT HOME: August 27th’s DVD & Blu-ray Releases

ICIP1
Purchase: Dark Angel (I Come In Peace) (Blu-ray/Scream Factory)

Detective Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren, Joshua Tree, The Expendables) thought he’d dealt with every kind of crime on earth. But now, someone is using human bodies to manufacture narcotics. Someone, or something, not of this world.
To the Alien that has arrived on earth, humans represent ideal drug factories because of our endorphins. To detective Caine, the Alien represents mankind’s worst threat. If the alien’s mission succeeds, our planet will be destroyed. Which is bad.
Together with his straight-arrow FBI partner (Brian Benben, Private Practice) and his girlfriend, the city coroner (Betsy Brantley, Deep Impact), Caine is going to send this alien home in pieces! Kaboom!

TWD1
Purchase: The Walking Dead Season 3 (Blu-ray/Anchor Bay)

In this uncertain world, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his band of survivors must not only fight the dead, but also face a whole new fear: the living. In this 16 episode season, the series Entertainment Weekly called the “greatest thriller ever produced for television”, Rick and his fellow survivors continue to seek refuge in a desolate and post-apocalyptic world and soon discover that there are greater forces to fear than just the walking dead. The struggle to survive has never been so perilous. This season also introduces new characters, including the Governor (David Morrissey) and fan-favorite Michonne (Danai Gurira), along with her zombie pets.

Q1

Purchase: Q The Winged Serpent (Blu-ray/Scream Factory)

Its name is Quetzalcoatl, a dragon-like Aztec god that is summoned to modern-day Manhattan by a mysterious cult. But just call it Q…because that is all you’ll be able to say before it tears you apart! Roosting within the top of the Chrysler Building, this fearsome monster begins raining blood, from the bodies of window washers, construction workers and rooftop sunbathers alike, onto the streets of New York!
Director Larry Cohen (It’s Alive, Maniac Cop) directs this bizarre masterwork, while the fantastic cast includes Michael Moriarty (Law & Order), as a small-time thief who finds the nest of the creature, and Richard Roundtree (Shaft) and David Carradine (Kill Bill) as New York’s finest, hot on the serpentine tail of the bloodthirsty Q!

B1

Purchase: The Barbarians/The Norseman (DVD, Shout Factory)

It is in the time of dungeons and dragons, witchcraft and sorcery. An evil ruler enslaves a beautiful young queen and she bears him three children–twin boys and a girl. Her faithful servant takes the twins to a distant land where they grow strong and powerful. With the help of a wild young barbarian outlaw woman, they procure weapons and set out to free their mother. Starring The Barbarian Brothers (aka Peter and David Paul D.C. CAB), Richard Lynch (INVASION U.S.A) and Michael Berryman (THE HILLS HAVE EYES). Directed by cult filmmaker Ruggero Deodato (CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST).

Before Columbus was born, an 11th-century Viking prince sails from Greenland to the unknown land we now call America in search of his father–a Norse king who went on an earlier expedition and was captured by the savage warriors of the Iroquois nation. Starring Lee Majors (THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN), Cornel Wilde (THE NAKED PREY) and Mel Ferrer (THE TEMPTER). Directed by Charles B. Pierce (THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN).

Purchase: Death Hunt (Blu-ray/Shout Factory)

Fifteen years after they starred together in The Dirty Dozen, Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin team up in an exciting action film that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
Lone trapper Albert Johnson (Bronson) shoots and kills a man in self-defense at his remote Yukon cabin. A few days later, lawman Sgt. Edgar Millen (Marvin) reluctantly puts together a posse of heavily armed men to arrest Johnson for the murder. But bringing Albert Johnson in ends up being more than anyone bargained for.
After a shoot-out at Johnson’s cabin leaves multiple men dead, Millen and his men set off into the frozen wilderness to bring the fugitive to justice!
