Step right up for this year’s opening edition of the Cinefantastique Laserblast Podcast – focusing its sights on all there is to cheer and fear in the world of horror, fantasy, and science fiction home video. Laserblast Episode 4.1.2 (following hot on the heels of the CFQ Spotlight Podcast regarding the new theatrical release TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D) not only runs down the Blu-ray discs, DVDs, and Digital Downloads available on Tuesday, January 8; the podcast also shines a light on a trio of pre-theatrical rentals – films available via Video on Demand prior to appearing in limited engagements on the big screen. STRUCK BY LIGHTENING (from GLEE’s Chris Colfer) open on Friday, January 11. STORAGE 24 (from DOCTOR WHO’s Noel Clarke) opens on January 18. JOHN DIES AT THE END (from PHANTASM writer-director Don Coscarelli) opens on January 25.

Also under consideration are A CHRISTMAS CAROL, the recent Blu-ray release of the 1951 film version starring Alistair Sim; KURONEKO, the black-and-white ghost cat movie now available through Hulu; and PLANET OF THE APES, whose fine Blu-ray release from a few years back is now discount-priced, benefitting those DVD owners who had been reluctant to upgrade. Listen in as Lawrence French, Dan Persons and Steve Biodrowski tell you all you need to know.

Note: This post has been edited to revise the release date for STORAGE 24, which (based on information from IMDB) was originally listed as January 11.
