On the one hand, all this news about classic horror films being re-released this year points out the deficit in great modern American horror films. But, on the other hand, we get to revisit some of the best horror films of all time--now with snazzy new Blu-ray and DVD packaging or back up on the big screen. Metro Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Fox Home Entertainment have now jumped on the bandwagon by re-releasing 13 cult classic horror films with all-new, limited-edition artist-rendered faceplates by Skuzzles.
So if you're near a Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Best Buy Canada, Walmart Canada, or other major retailer, pick up a copy of any of these favorites for only $5-7 on DVD or $7-$8 on Blu-ray:
1. Jeepers Creepers
2. Child’s Play
4. Last House on the Left
5. Return of the Living Dead
6. Amityville Horror
7. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978 version)
8. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
10. Silence of the Lambs
12. Killer Klowns From Outer Space
13. Teen Wolf
So if you see a crazy lady rifling through Target looking for copies of Amityville Horror, Invasion of the Body Snatchers or Carrie, don't be alarmed--it's just me, doing a little shopping. I'm a sucker for re-releases of great films, I can't help it. See you there?
