'The Lair of the White Worm' & 'The Gate' Walmart Exclusive Blu-ray SteelBooks Coming May 14

Two cult classic fantasy horror favorites - 'The Lair of the White Worm' & 'The Gate' - will be getting new Walmart-exclusive Blu-ray SteelBook releases on May 14.

The releases both appear to have all of the previously released as part of Lionsgate's growing Vestron Video series. As we saw with Shivers, Little Monsters, and Kickboxer it looks like these are just going to be repackaged discs with new art and SteelBooks. Which is great if you never bought them previously! It's nice to see Walmart picking up the pace with more store-exclusive packaging ever since Best Buy exited the market. The trick will be if these actually make it to store shelves, we've seen a lot of pictures of bare racks on the interwebs - so hopefully these will be coming to a store near you! 

Hugh Grant, Amanda Donohoe, and Catherine Oxenberg star in this mix of heart-stopping horror and campy humor. James D’Ampton (Grant) returns to his country castle in England. Legend has it that James’s distant ancestor once slayeed the local dragon — a monstrous white worm with a fondness for the sweet flesh of virgins. The young lord dismisses the legend as folklore, until archaeology student Angus Flint explores James’s property and unearths a massive reptilian skull and a pagan snake god’s ancient site of worship. When James’s virtuous girlfriend, Eve Trent (Oxenberg), suddenly disappears, James and Angus set out to investigate the foreboding cavern said to be the worm’s lair, where a centuries-old mystery begins to uncoil.

When best friends Glen and Terry stumble across a mysterious crystalline rock in Glen's backyard, they quickly dig up the newly sodden lawn searching for more precious stones. Instead, they unearth The Gate — an underground chamber of terrifying demonic evil. The teenagers soon understand what evil they've released as they are overcome with an assortment of horrific experiences. With fiendish followers invading suburbia, it's now up to the kids to discover the secret that can lock The Gate forever . . . if it's not too late.

No Rest For The Wicked (Or the Good) - HDD's 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide, Mar 17, 2024

 Yeah, as we somehow survived the barrage of titles last week, we get that one-two punch that carries into this week. You really didn't need to make that mortgage payment anyway, did you?

 Welcome to Volume 4 Episode 42 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of March 17th - March 23rd, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

 

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

 This week is a good news bad news week in the 4K category. The good news, there are no new releases pining for your attention. The bad news, there are a lot of great catalog/boutique labels that are pulling at your purse strings that much harder. Resistance is futile.

 Import Monday includes several titles. First from Second Sight, a pair of "fat-pack" limited edition releases, Green Room and Possessor. You can also get those as standard editions as well if you are not down with the swag, Green Room and Possessor. I am a sucker for these Second Sight fat-packs. I don't mind giving Diabolik DVD my business, but the going price of $50 a piece price tag is something to balk at. That actually is cheaper than buying directly from Amazon UK and my orders do not get regularly canceled.

   

 

 From 88 Films, their take on The Amityville Horror (1979).

 

 On to Domestic Tuesday. Beginning with Kino Lorber, the drama/thriller Changing Lanes is up first, and it stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck.

 

 And next on the 'inevitable' release docket, The Manchurian Candidate (2004). When we saw the original 1962 version come out, it was merely a matter of time. Which version do you prefer? This time though it wasn't the original studio releasing one and Kino Lorber the other.

 

 Scream Factory is the next label this week and they have a trio of skus coming Tuesday. The first two are considered remakes, we get Child's Play (2019) and Carrie (2013).

   

 

 Delayed from 3 months ago, but finally seeing light of day, The Ring Collection materializes this week. Not too long after I imported the trilogy from Germany on blu-ray, this was announced. The story of my life. Hopefully The Grudge films is next?

 

 Under the same house, but with the "Select" Label, Shout releases K-19: The Widowmaker to 4K disc.

 

 Arrow Video has the original Japanese release of the film titled Dark Water. Also available as an Arrow Store Exclusive Cover Edition. Does this mean that Scream Factory will do the English language remake? We went from Ringu to The Ring, so maaaayybe.

 

 Also from Arrow Video, a standard edition to Witness. This one sold out pretty fast as a limited edition, so here is a swagless release.

 Import Wednesday comes from the land down under via Umbrella Entertainment with Dead End Drive-In: Collector's Edition. A standard edition will be available at Amazon US in a couple of weeks.

 Donning a 4K slip SteelBook Edition, Barb Wire gets a release from Turbine Entertainment. Follow our link to the article to decide which one is best for you.

 

 Next week the spigot is still blasting, Paramount Presents, Indicator, Criterion and more!

 

Blu-ray releases-

 There are no blu-ray counterparts of the above 4K releases, that wallet in your pocket thanks you.

 TV on disc include The Act: The Complete Limited Series, Doctor Who: The Daleks in Color and Suits: The Complete Series.

 

 From Janus Contemporarires this week, the documentary Lynch/Oz debuts to blu-ray disc.

 

 From Criterion Collection, foreign drama The Runner.

 

 Under the Sony Pictures Classics label comes Shadow Magic, a drama/romance from 2000.

 

 Next week's domestic blu-ray release calendar is APOCALYPTIC! I don't think you could possibly prepare yourself unless you win the lottery.

 There are some Umbrella Entertainment imports available Wednesday. We will post domestic links when they become available as standard releases.

Notable announcements from last week:

 Criterion Collection has announced their June slate of titles. For 4K, the titles are Blue Velvet, Bound and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. For blu-ray, titles are Bound, Querelle, The Underground Railroad and Victims of Sin. When I imported Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas via Arrow Video, I knew it was inevitable that Criterion would do it, but I am not disappointed with my Arrow release one bit.

Which titles are you buying this week? Which ones are on your wishlist, be it to buy as an impulse buy or to wait for the right price?

On June 4, Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas will receive a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray + Blu-ray upgrade.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - The Criterion Collection  4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - The Criterion Collection 

It is 1971, and journalist Raoul Duke barrels toward Las Vegas—accompanied by a trunkful of contraband and his slightly unhinged Samoan attorney, Dr. Gonzo—to cover a motorcycle race. What should be a cut-and-dried journalistic assignment quickly descends into a feverish psychedelic odyssey. Director Terry Gilliam and an all-star cast, headlined by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro, show no mercy in bringing Hunter S. Thompson’s excoriating dissection of the American way of life to the screen, creating a film both hilarious and savage

Arriving on June 11 comes Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Querelle to Blu-ray.

Querelle - The Criterion Collection 

Querelle - The Criterion Collection 

Conjured from the unholy meeting of two iconoclastic queer artists, Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s final film audaciously raises Jean Genet’s controversial novel to the level of myth. In an expressionistic soundstage vision of a French seaport town—bathed in fiery reds and complete with phallic spires—a strapping sailor and unrepentant criminal (Brad Davis) comes ashore to arouse passion, rivalry, and violence among the libidinal denizens drawn into his orbit. Enacted with dreamlike stylization by a cast of international stars, including Jeanne Moreau and Franco Nero, Querelle finds Fassbinder pushing his taboo-shattering depiction of gay desire to delirious extremes.

BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • Restored high-definition digital master, approved by director of photography Xaver Schwarzenberger, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • New interview with critic Michael Koresky on director Rainer Werner Fassbinder's aesthetics and visual storytelling
  • Rainer Werner Fassbinder—Last Works, a 1982 documentary by Wolf Gremm
  • Trailer
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Nathan Lee

    New cover by Astra Zero

Next on June 18, Emilio Fernández's Victims of Sin will arrive in stores on Blu-ray.

Victims of Sin - The Criterion Collection 

Victims of Sin - The Criterion Collection 

A treasure of Mexico’s cinematic golden age, this deliriously plotted blend of gritty crime film, heart-tugging maternal melodrama, and mambo musical is a dazzling showcase for iconic star Ninón Sevilla. She brings fierce charisma and fiery strength to her role as a rumbera—a female nightclub dancer—who gives up everything to raise an abandoned boy, whom she must protect from his ruthless gangster father. Directed at a dizzying pace by filmmaking titan Emilio Fernández, and shot in stylish chiaroscuro by renowned cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa amid smoky dance halls and atmospherically seedy underworld haunts, Victims of Sin is a ferociously entertaining female-powered noir pulsing with the intoxicating rhythms of some of Latin America’s most legendary musical stars.

BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • New interview with filmmaker and archivist Viviana Garcia Besné
  • New interview with cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto on the work of Gabriel Figueroa
  • Archival documentary on cine de rumberas, featuring interviews with actor Ninón Sevilla
  • Trailer
  • New English subtitle translation
  • PLUS: An essay by scholar Jacqueline Avila

    New cover by Lauren Tamaki

Lana and Lilly Wachowski's Bound will arrive on both 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray on June 18.

Bound - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

Bound - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - The Criterion Collection 

Before they blew the world’s mind with The Matrix, Lana and Lilly Wachowski delivered a jolt of pure pulp pleasure with their hyperstylish debut, which puts a deliciously sapphic spin on a crackerjack caper premise. When butch plumber Corky (Gina Gershon) catches the eye of alluring femme (fatale) Violet (Jennifer Tilly), little does she know she’s about to be drawn into both a torrid affair and a high-stakes heist that will pit the pair against the mob. With crackling dialogue, luscious neonoir cinematography, and live-wire performances by Gershon, Tilly, and Joe Pantoliano, Bound is a genre-reimagining joyride that keeps both the tension and the erotic heat rising through each crazily careening twist.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restoration, supervised and approved by cinematographer Bill Pope, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack
  • One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in Dolby Vision HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features
  • Audio commentary featuring directors Lana and Lilly Wachowski; actors Gina Gershon, Joe Pantoliano, and Jennifer Tilly; editor Zach Staenberg; and technical consultant Susie Bright
  • New video essay by film critic Christina Newland
  • Six interview programs featuring Gershon, Pantoliano, Pope, Staenberg, Tilly, actor Christopher Meloni, composer Don Davis, title designer Patti Podesta, and film scholars Jennifer Moorman and B. Ruby Rich
  • Trailers
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing

    New cover by Drusilla Adeline/Sister Hyde Design

David Lynch's Blue Velvet will be getting its long-awaited 4K UHD Blu-ray upgrade on June 25.

Blue Velvet - The Criterion Collection 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 

Blue Velvet - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - The Criterion Collection 

Home from college, Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) makes an unsettling discovery: a severed human ear, lying in a field. In the mystery that follows, by turns terrifying and darkly funny, writer-director David Lynch burrows deep beneath the picturesque surfaces of small-town life. Driven to investigate, Jeffrey finds himself drawing closer to his fellow amateur sleuth, Sandy Williams (Laura Dern), as well as their person of interest, lounge singer Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini)—and facing the fury of Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper), a psychopath who will stop at nothing to keep Dorothy in his grasp. With intense performances and hauntingly powerful scenes and images, Blue Velvet is an unforgettable vision of innocence lost, and one of the most influential American films of the late twentieth century.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • 4K digital restoration, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack, supervised and approved by director David Lynch
  • Alternate original 2.0 surround soundtrack
  • One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in Dolby Vision HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features
  • The Lost Footage, fifty-three minutes of deleted scenes and alternate takes assembled by Lynch
  • “Blue Velvet” Revisited, a feature-length meditation on the making of the movie by Peter Braatz, filmed on-set during the production
  • Mysteries of Love, a seventy-minute documentary from 2002 on the making of the film
  • Interview from 2017 with composer Angelo Badalamenti
  • It’s a Strange World: The Filming of “Blue Velvet,” a 2019 documentary featuring interviews with crew members and visits to the shooting locations
  • Lynch reading from Room to Dream, a 2018 book he coauthored with Kristine McKenna
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: Excerpts by McKenna from Room to Dream

    Cover by Fred Davis

And finally, June 25 will also bring Barry Jenkins' The Underground Railroad to Blu-ray.

The Underground Railroad - The Criterion Collection 

The Underground Railroad - The Criterion Collection 

A monumental reimagining of American history, Barry Jenkins’s adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize–winning 2016 novel is a harrowing and rhapsodic journey through a still-echoing past. Weaving together historical fiction with moments of magical realism, The Underground Railroad is a full sensory immersion into the world of Cora (Thuso Mbedu), who, fleeing slavery, embarks on a treacherous quest for freedom—and is menaced by violence, supported by a clandestine community fighting for liberation, and haunted by the people she loses along the way. With images of searing power and stirring poetry, Jenkins delivers an epic saga of survival and resilience that pushes the limited-series format to new heights of cinematic transcendence.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED FOUR-BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • 4K digital master, approved by cowriter-director Barry Jenkins, with Dolby Atmos soundtrack
  • Alternate stereo soundtrack
  • New audio commentary featuring Jenkins and, on select chapters, cinematographer James Laxton and lead editor Joi McMillon, with an introduction by the director
  • New graphic-novel adaptation of “Genesis,” an unfilmed chapter of The Underground Railroad written by Jenkins and Nathan C. Parker, with an introduction by Jenkins
  • The Gaze, a companion film by Jenkins, with a new introduction by the director
  • Deleted scenes
  • Seven teasers made by Jenkins, with a new introduction by the director
  • Building “The Underground Railroad,” a short program featuring Jenkins and production designer Mark Friedberg discussing the creation of the train-station sets
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing and English descriptive audio
  • PLUS: An essay by critic Angelica Jade Bastién

    New cover by Antonio Stella

Pre-orders for The Criterion Collection's June releases should be available soon 

Falling Into The Financial ABYSS - HDD's 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide, Mar 10, 2024

 Between this week and next, you might need to draw from your equity line of credit if you truly buy everything you want. Those three James Cameron titles finally (maybe?) hit the streets, three new title releases, and more. And that's just the 4K category. If you are budgeted to buy just 4 titles this week, you will probably buy the 3 Cameron releases, so which one is your 4th title?

 Welcome to Volume 4 Episode 41 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of March 10th - March 16th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

 In general, we normally post the new releases first. But this week is not a normal release week. Let us begin with the three James Cameron titles we have waited decades for to hit blu-ray, but now (maybe) get them in 4K and blu-ray in the same package. BONUS! My reluctance to say they are finally here is that I do not have them in my hands, nor have I seen them in retailer back rooms yet either. Some merchants have even pushed the street date to next week, which tells me the ETA in their stock rooms will be Monday afternoon, or Tuesday if we're lucky.

 The Disney company has overused the term Ultimate Collector's Edition, but this week all three Cameron titles don that label, for a good reason. Dolby Vision, BD100 discs, lots of extras, this batch has it all.

 First in the trio of releases, the title that got a remaster a couple of years ago and was on Prime video among other sites and had a lot of us speculating a future release, The Abyss finally arrives. Finally my video wall will have this one, Deepstar Six and Leviathan all over again! At press time Amazon's stats say they sold over 10K+ copies in the last month.

 

 Next in our trio of James Cameron releases, Aliens. In addition to it being a serious action thriller, the scene that sticks out the most to me in a comical sense was Bill Paxton's character saying "Game Over Man!" Amazon's stats show 7K+ were ordered last month.

 

 Someone pinch me, the third title is here (maybe) and hopefully is a major upgrade to that blu-ray we had to import from Spain, referring to True Lies. Don't be 'stuck' in the van unless it has a big screen and a killer sound system, grab your copy NOW, if you can find it. Just like Aliens, 7K+ were ordered last month alone.

 

 And now back to our regularly scheduled programming, let's see what New Releases we are getting this week.

 First from Warner Bros, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Ranked 35% on Rotten Tomatoes, but with an 81 audience score, not sure what to really think about this one. You can also/alternately snag a Walmart Exclusive Steelbook.

    

 

 Also from Warner Bros, The Color Purple (2023) get a 4K disc release, and this one ranks 82% on the Tomatometer, with an audience score of 95. What does the remake do that the original does not? The simplest answer is it adds elements from the stage musical. Hopefully by press time we will have a review ready.

 

 And the third (and final) new release 4K this week is Disney's Wish - Walmart Exclusive SteelBook. When it was originally announced we expected a standard 4K from the Disney Movie Club. In light of recent news of the club closing its doors, that is not happening.

 

 On to catalog titles, first with Dreamworks Animation, Kung Fu Panda. With Kung Fu Panda 4 hitting theaters, releasing the first 3 only make sense. Now if they would release the TV Series to blu-ray! (hint hint)

 

 The Shout Select label this week is offering Quigley Down Under. Tom Selleck NOT driving a Ferrari? Yeah, he did do that.

 

 From Paramount, because they were so successfuly, reprints of SteelBooks of Dragonslayer, Event Horizon and The Running Man are available this week.

 Now then, that wasn't too damaging, was it? If there were multiple box sets, one would say YES. Next week is a bunch of boutique label releases, we finally get The Ring Collection, more Shout Factory, Kino Lorber and Arrow Video.

 

Blu-ray releases-

 Blu-ray counterparts of the above 4K releases include Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and The Color Purple (2023) from Warner Bros, and Wish from Disney. You can also get the Aquaman 2-Film Collection from Warner Bros.

 The rest of the blu-ray category looks pretty crowded, so best of luck resisting temptation on a spending spree.

 New release from 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures, Poor Things. Available in 4K via streaming, getting just a blu-ray is slightly infuriating and more common now that Disney owns the Fox label. Could be worse I suppose, DVD only!

 

 New rom-com from Sony Pictures with Anyone But You. I'd swear this came out a couple of weeks ago, but apparently not.

 

 From Universal Pictures, The Prince of Egypt: The Musical.

 Get your fill of action and suspense with I.S.S. from Decal Bleecker. While we are on sub-labels and action films, Freelance comes out from Relativity Media. And the Michael Mann biography/drama Ferrari comes via Neon.

 Ever heard the names John Wayne, Lauren Bacall or Ron Howard? How 'bout Don Siegel ? This week from Arrow Video we get all four with The Shootist (Limited Edition).

 

 Warner Archive Collection has a couple of titles for us this week, Colt .45: The Complete Series and Looney Tunes Collector's Choice: Volume 3.

 

 Boutique label Criterion Collection has a pair of blu-ray releases this week. First, 1941's fantasy romance All That Money Can Buy (a.k.a. The Devil and Daniel Webster). Then, shifting gears to a documentary, Laura Poitras’s All the Beauty and the Bloodshed.

 Anime highlights include Akiba Maid War: Complete Collection, The Legendary Hero Is Dead! - The Complete Season, One Piece: Season Thirteen - Voyage Six and  Suzume: Movie, which is also available as a Limited Edition and as a Walmart Exclusive SteelBook.

 

 TV on disc other than Warner Archive Collection also includes All Creatures Great and Small - Season 4, Rick and Morty: Season 7, also available in a SteelBook EditionSonic Prime: Season One and Stephen King's The Shining (1997).

 

Notable announcements from last week:

 Shout Factory has announced much of their May releases. In no particular order, look for blu-rays of The Island of Dr. Moreau Collector's Edition (1996), Dracula 2000 and Orphan, and for 4K, look for The Addams Family 1&2, Gretel & Hansel and Killer Klowns from Outer Space, which the latter will also have a SteelBook release.

 Disney is releasing more Disney+ content to blu-ray and 4K disc. Andor, Moon Knight, Obi-Wan and Falcon and the Winter Soldier are coming April 30th.

 Jason Statham's The Beekeper is coming to blu-ray and 4K disc on April 23rd.

Bursting with imagination and having seen her share of tragedy and fantasy, Amélie is not like the other girls. When she grows up, she becomes a waitress in a Montmartre bar run by a former dancer. Amélie enjoys simple pleasures until she discovers that her goal in life is to help others. To that end, she invents all sorts of tricks that allow her to intervene incognito into other people's lives, including an imbibing concierge and her hypochondriac neighbor. But Amélie's most difficult case turns out to be Nino Quicampoix, a lonely sex shop employee who collects photos abandoned at coin-operated photobooths.

The Calm Before The Storm, It's HDD's 4K UHD & Blu-ray Shopping Guide, Mar 3, 2024

For people like me, I look forward to 4K releases, and I tell ya, this week is a great week to prepare ourselves for what next week is going to bring! It's sort of a calm before the storm. Keep both hands on the wheel as we get through this week and into next.

Welcome to Volume 4 Episode 40 of our weekly release guide. A look at the highlights of what's coming to disc the week of March 3rd - March 9th, as well as a look at announcements from last week.

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases-

 Walmart Monday has Brawl in Cell Block 99, Children of the Corn (2020),  Mayhem and Prisoners of the Ghostland available as 4K Walmart Exclusive SteelBooks.

   

 

 Just TWO releases this week in this category on Tuesday. First, from Universal and another upgrade to a recently released blu-ray, action/thriller The 355.

 

 

 And second, from Paramount and a straight-up double-dip of sorts, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, but as a standard edition (rather than from the 'Paramount Presents' line.) Relatively sure these are the exact same discs as the previous release, check out the review to see if it's right for you.

Next week could be walletmageddon, walletpocalypse, bank breaker, credit card maxxer, need a new line of credit, insert witty financial pun here, all of the above! Those James Cameron titles we have been eagerly awaiting for for YEARS, the next Aquaman, The Color Purple remake, Wish, a bunch of Shout Factory titles, and more!

 

Blu-ray releases-

 Blu-ray counterparts of the above 4K releases? Look to the past, we already have them.

 The volume of blu-rays this week is also lower than normal. Not gloom and doom, there are plenty of preorders still on the books, this week is just slow like the 4K category.

 Walmart Monday brings exclusive SteelBooks, this week look for Kickboxer, Little Monsters, Shivers and V/H/S/Triple Feature.

 

  Anime highlight this week includes just RWBY: Ice Queendom - The Complete Season.

 

 Shout Factory brings back a memorable to me title, Over the Edge. What I remember most is how much havoc these kids did.

 

 I know we are all itching for this in 4K, and anything (it seems) related to James Wan and/or Blumhouse seems to be hit or miss (mostly miss). SAW 10-Film Collection 20th Anniversary Edition is available Tuesday. A fancy looking set with all 10 films in it.

 Honorable mention: This one from Oscilloscope is getting a fair amount of attention with some of the Hollywood circles. Classified as a fantasy horror, Moon Garden is on track for a Tuesday release.

 

 Amazon US has the February batch of Imprint titles available Friday, they are Children of HeavenThe Dresser, Face to Face  (Ansikte Mot Ansikte), I'm Not Scared (Io Non Ho Paura), A Man in Love (Un Homme Amoureux) and Mountains of the Moon.

Notable announcements from last week:

 Glory is coming to 4K SteelBook from Sony Pictures on June 4th.

 The Departed has been finalized for a release date to 4K disc on April 23.
