Laserblast: The Haunting in Connecticut on DVD & Blu-ray

When it comes to horror, fantasy, and science fiction title, this week’s big home video release is THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT, which was a minor sleeper hit in theatres earlier this year. The film arrives on disc in three variations: a single-disc edition, an unrated special edition, and a Blu-ray disc.

The only other notable new title is THE HORSEMEN, a direct-to-video film about a detective (Dennis Quaid) who discovers a connection between himself and a serial killer linked to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse; Ziyi Zhang co-stars.

As for the rest, it’s old wine in new bottles:

  • CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON; CURSE OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER, and HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS are packed together in a Blu-ray box set
  • I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and DEATH TRANCE (a 2005 Fant-Asia adventure) ges the Blu-ray treatment
  • SWAMP THING re-emerges from the swamp onto DVD.
  • “Zombie Pack (slimpack) offers three sequels to 1980’s seminal Italian splatter pic ZOMBI 2 (so named to make it sound like a sequel to George Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD, which was released as ZOMBI in Italy). Neither ZOMBI 3 nor ZOMBI 4: AFTER DEATH nor ZOMBI 5: KILLING BIRDS have achieved the cult status of their progenitor.
