DVD & Blu-ray Releases: June 3, 2014

By: Sean Brickley

 

We’ve got another week with just a little bit of everything.  A couple of throwbacks to the 70’s, the Crystal Lake documentary and if you play your cards right, a Walking Dead T-shirt.  Additionally, one of my personal favorite horror movies ever, Ravenous, is getting its Blu-ray release. 

All in all, 9 movies, 1 television series and 1 collection.

Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History Of Friday The 13th (2013)

 

Format(s):                           DVD

Notable Names:               Corey Feldman , Sean S. Cunningham , Daniel Farrands

DVD Link:                            http://amzn.com/B00JWXDD6O

Synopsis:

For more than thirty years, Friday The 13th has proven to be as unstoppable at the box office as its hockey-masked villain JASON VOORHEES, having spawned twelve feature films (and counting!), a syndicated television series and an extensive line of books, merchandise and collectibles. For its creators, FRIDAY THE 13TH has been anything but bad luck; generating nearly $600 million in domestic box office receipts and turning an unstoppable, machete-wielding madman into a true pop-culture icon. Inspired by the critically-acclaimed book, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History Of Friday The 13th takes viewers behind the mask on an epic journey into the making of the landmark horror franchise — from its humble beginnings in 1980 at a New Jersey summer camp to the blockbuster release of its 2009 ‘reboot’.
Combining hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photographs, film clips, outtakes, archival documents, conceptual art and behind-the-scenes footage, and featuring interviews with more than 150 cast and crew members spanning all twelve films and the television series, Crystal Lake Memories is the ultimate tribute to one of horror’s most iconic and enduring franchises.

The Walking Dead Seasons 1-3 with Limited Edition T-Shirt

 

Format(s):                           Blu-ray

Notable Names:               Andrew Lincoln , Jon Bernthal

Blu-ray Link:                       http://amzn.com/B00J5G1O7I

Synopsis:

Entertainment Weekly calls it THE GREATEST THRILLER EVER PRODUCED FOR TELEVISION. This bundle of the first 3 seasons on Blu-ray comes with a limited Edition Bonus T-shirt.
When the world is ravaged by a zombie apocalypse, police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and a small group of others struggle to stay alive as the dead stalk them at every turn. Each season brings new challenges as Rick and the others hold onto their humanity as they fight to live in this terrifying new world. A survivalist story at its core, the series explores how the living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth. They themselves have become the walking dead.
Season 3 introduces new characters, including the Governor (David Morrissey) and fan-favorite Michonne (Danai Gurira), along with her zombie pets. Based on Robert Kirkman’s hugely successful and popular comic book series, AMC’s original series The Walking Dead is an epic, edge-of-your-seat drama where personal struggles are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment crisis.
