Shelf Space: An Interview with Diabolik DVD

As a majority of BGH readers are predecessors to the digital age, we know that underground cinema pairs with nothing better than our local, specialty video stores of days past. But with those cinefile safe-havens disappearing, what do we do? Roll over and die in the bottom of a Wal-Mart 5 dollar movie bin? Scour Amazon and Ebay until we reach a state of catatonia? Shit no, man. Diabolik DVD is here for you!

HI! My name is Jake. Since all I really do is sit in the dark and watch movies, I've been trusted to do some home media reviews for the site. There are tons of cult/horror blu-rays coming out every month but we, the fans, can only take home so many.. Shelf Space was created to help be your guiding light when making those tough decisions. It's an honor to be let aboard the Bloody Good Horror pimp ship as it continues its journey to internet greatness.

Hammer classics slated for Blu-Ray restoration, lost material dredged up

Since the studio has come back to life in 2007, Hammer Studios have been hard at work putting out some quality content. High quality flicks such as "Let Me In" and the upcoming "The Woman in Black" help to prove that they mean business with their return to the big screen. With this news story over on the BBC this morning, Hammer is now planning to impress us even more with plans to restore thirty of their past horror classics for Blu-ray release!

Hot pockets kids! Looks like there's a film in the works based on the Matterhorn rollercoaster ride at Disneyland. Currently titled "The Hill" the film will focus on a group travelers who head to the top of a mountain and encounter a bunch of Yeti's on the way down. Then their lap bars hit them in the nuts and they walk around funny for the rest of the day. I added that part but it would make it really authentic to the ride experience so I'm pretty sure they'll include it.

Because the teat isn't completely dry the good people at Lionsgate will be putting out a special 25th anniversary edition of Sam Raimi's
"Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn". In all fairness it'll be on Blu-Ray and it'll have a boat load of new interviews and commentaries but honestly at this point what more can you say. "Oh hey I never noticed that chair in the corner of the room before. Let's talk about that".

Steven Spielberg and Stephen King are teaming up with Showtime to create a new series based on King's 2009 novel "Under the Dome". The story focuses on a group of vacationers in Maine who begin battling after a strange force field appears over their town. Wasn't that the basis of "The Simpsons Movie"? I hope this one is funny too and makes a lot of doughnut references.

Looks like Amy Adams is being eyed by Warner Bros. to take the lead in the upcoming remake of "The Orphanage". Nothing's been confirmed yet but Adams would play the role of a woman who takes over the orphanage where she was raised only to find that the imaginary friends her son is playing with are out to get her. I don't know who played that part in the original and honestly I don't care. There's no way she was as adorable as Amy Adams. Once again the USA makes things better.

In Real People News: 

You never know when love will strike. Sometimes it'll be at a book store, sometimes it'll be at Burger King and other times it'll be in a pool while looking at a sexy inflatable raft. What makes it better is that the Ohio man who is up on charges for having relations with the flotation device was arrested last year for getting it on with an inflatable pumpkin. I wonder if the pumpkin is jealous.

Some people just want to be friends. But apparently it's illegal to send a friend request to a guy who's on trial while you're sitting on the jury. Apparently you can't talk about the trial on your wall either. I think if it was Myspace this guy would have been ok. Myspace is where the deviants hang out.

I don't know when the hell this was decided but apparently "Quarantine 2: Terminal" will hit theaters on June 17th. Of course it will be limited, which means probably a total of 8 theaters will be showing it. Half of those will be in a bunch of crappy theaters in the middle of the Village and the other half in equally crappy theaters in LA, all of which will be filled with pricks. Save me a seat!

For those of you who have been waiting for the "Nightmare on Elm Street" sequels to hit Blu-Ray I've got good news and bad news. The good news is both 2 & 3 in the series are being released on September 27th. The bad news is they're going to be released on one disc so I'm guessing special features are going to be pretty slim. And the news that I had a lovely weekend is probably not good or bad to you. Jerk.

David Arquette is a director now! Well alright I guess he's directed some TV and crap but "Glutton" is the first movie I've actually noticed his name attached to and what's more is his sister Patricia Arquette has now been cast as the sister of a morbidly obese bedridden man which the movie focuses on. Am I the only one who's slightly turned on by this movie premise? Yes? I should have figured.

Some good Blu-Ray news for you though is that Steven Spielberg himself has confirmed that "Jaws" will in fact be released on the magical disc in the near future. He's also confirmed that there will be no digital enhancements of any kind done to the film and it will be left in its true original glory. Which makes me wonder why I need a 37th version of the movie but I'm sure I can find a reason. I'm really good at talking myself into things.

In Real People News: 

A 62 year old man was under arrest after he opted to stay at the bar rather then take care of his adult disabled daughter, letting her sit in her own waste. I'm not touching this one with a ten foot pole, even I have standards... Bars are so much fun though... just saying.

My middle school sex ed teacher told me this would happen. An Arizona women is now locked up after she slit a man's throat during the post love-making massage he was giving her. If there's a story about a man growing hair all over his palms my life is pretty much over.
