When I first saw the trailers for Source Code many months ago, I had my reservations about it. It didn’t wow me or make me want to build up any personal hype for a film in which many of the ideas have already been used (The Matrix, Speed). Source Code was screened at the SXSW […]
Takashi Miike has done it again with his latest violent installment called 13 Assassins. The story focuses on a small group of elite samurai who are given orders by the Shogun to destroy a sadistic lord that rules part of Japan. This is Feudal Japan so territories are owned by lords and they (the lords) […]
It seems like just yesterday, the horror community as a whole were waiting with baited breath to catch their first glimpse at AMC’s live action recreation of what has since become one of the most popular comic books on the face of the planet. Halloween 2010 would unleash The Walking Dead upon us all. A […]
Coming September 13th to Blu-ray and DVD is the release of Starz Original series Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, and it’s coming with a 3D bonus feature. I have always been a huge fan of the 1960 movie but didn’t get the opportunity to catch this when it aired, so I am eager to check […]
Some of you may not be a fan of Diablo Cody’s Jennifer’s Body. Some of you have legitimate complaints, and others just hate for the sake of hating. Be that as it may, I personally enjoyed the film for what it was. A creature feature with witty dialog, and a sexy lead actresses. If you’ve […]
Sucker Punch is the new film from Zack Snyder, who was responsible for the Dawn of the Dead remake, 300, and Watchmen. I’m a pretty big fan of Watchmen, but I personally wasn’t floored by 300, at least not as much as most people seem to have been. Judging by the early theatrical trailers though, […]
The good folks over at Blu-Ray.com have announced that Lionsgate will be releasing Peter Jackson’s early film Dead Alive, also referred to as Braindead, on Blu-Ray this October. Details on the disc are non existent at this moment. What we do know, though, is that the disc will arrive on October 4th, right in time […]
Herschell Gordon Lewis introduced the world to gore the likes that had not been seen on screen before, and on September 27th Image Entertainment and Something Weird unleash the documentary The Godfather of Gore on DVD.
Great news for fans of this classic Frank Henenlotter flick from 1982. As you can already tell by the headline and the attached picture Basket Case is set to hit Blu-ray, and it will be coming from Image Entertainment and Something Weird on September 27th. Check out down below for a list of the extras […]

There was a wait over just over 10 years between Scream 3 and Scream 4, but now the latest in the franchise that breathed some new life into the genre is set to hit Blu-ray and DVD. We’ll have to wait until October 4th, although that will coincide nicely with Halloween which will be just […]
What the fuck, Jodorowsky? I mean, I love your films, but you might be legitimately insane. I have written about the man on here before, primarily concerning SANTA SANGRE, which is easily his most horror-centric work. But, all things considered, everything the man has done contains something horrific on screen. EL TOPO has imagery that […]
I almost feel like reviewing this is unnecessary. You know damn well from the title, box art and stamp of quality from the SyFy Channel what you’ll get, but that doesn’t make it any easier to swallow. Let’s face it, this is bad, you know it is going to be bad and the filmmakers going […]
Hello again, I’ve decided against doing one update a week and figured I’ll just post updates as they happen. There’s a couple big deals to be had today, and as always, they may not last long so get them before they are gone!
We’re barely three months into 2011 and this is already proving to be a huge year for fans of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Not only did his long out of print, cult favorite Santa Sangre get a lavish DVD/blu-ray release from the fine people at Severin (which I covered here) but now Anchor Bay will be giving […]
From Image Entertainment, one of the leading distributors of horror entertainment, comes the chilling new horror movie The Inheritance. Family bonds will be tested when a young group of cousins are brought together for a chance to claim their inheritance. They are all in for quite a shock when they learn just what has been […]
Hey all, this is only the second iteration of this column and this is going to be a short one as there are not nearly as many as worthwhile deals this time around. Still, there are some bargains out there that may be worth your while (and money) so let’s have at it:
Hello, readers. I’d like to introduce you to a new, hopefully weekly, column of mine here on The Liberal Dead. The title pretty much says it all, but basically this will be a round up of awesome horror (and genre) related blu-ray deals that I stumble across online for the upcoming week and for future […]
Let me start by saying this movie, directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi, really isn’t for everybody. That said, I feel like everybody should give it a try just to see what they think. The movie basically revolves around a girl named Gorgeous (you think this one is bad, wait until I tell you the others) and […]
Santa Sangre is a beast of a film. If El Topo gave Jodorowsky a name as a filmmaker and The Holy Mountain gave credence to that name, then Santa Sangre stands above the two and waves a flag that subtly states “Look what I can do, motherfucker”. In other words, this Jodorowsky’s masterpiece. This is […]
