My horror blu-ray pick of this week’s very small list is Pride + Prejudice + Zombies, since it’s the one I most want to see.
You can view the complete list of this week’s horror releases below.
Pride + Prejudice + Zombies [Blu-ray]
Starring: Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance, Lena Heady
Synopsis: A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield in order to conquer the undead once and for all.
Venom [Blu-ray + DVD Combo]
Starring: Sterling Hayden, Klaus Kinski, Sarah Miles, Nicol Williamson, Susan George
Synopsis: Behind the drapes… Between the walls… In your bed… A thriller to make your skin crawl!
It was supposed to be the perfect crime: the sexy maid (Susan George of STRAW DOGS), a psychotic chauffeur (Oliver Reed of THE BROOD) and an international terrorist (the legendary Klaus Kinski) kidnap a wealthy ten-year-old boy from his elegant London townhouse. But they didn’t count on a murdered cop, a desperate hostage siege, and one very unexpected houseguest: a furious Black Mamba, the most lethal and aggressive snake known to nature. It can attack from ten feet away. Its bite brings excruciating death. And it is on the loose. Now, terror knows no antidote… and the ultimate in slithering mayhem is VENOM.
Sterling Hayden (THE KILLING), Nicol Williamson (EXCALIBUR) and Sarah Miles (BLOW-UP) co-star in this gripping suspense thriller based on the novel by best-selling author Alan Scholefield and directed by Piers Haggard (THE BLOOD ON SATAN’S CLAW). VENOM has been newly transferred in 2K High Definition from its negative and features some very real – and extremely deadly – Black Mambas!
