    “KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM” Unleashed this February

    THE KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM. Merely mentioning the name will raise eyebrows amongst ardent horror fans, as the Joe Lynch film has taken its place amongst the more prolific of the unreleased genre curiosities. However, XLerator Media has announced the a long awaited VOD release on February 11th, with the film being optioned for theatrical exhibition via the crowd-sourcing request site TUGG. And for those wondering, the film will sadly be the edited “producer’s cut” which stirred up controversy earlier this summer when Lynch himself took to social media in protest.

    At this point, I’ve become convinced that every other day besides Christmas, Santa Claus works in Acquisitions for SHOUT! Factory.

The SCREAM Factory Facebook page let loose that the brand will release Brian De Palma’s superb cult classic, THE PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, on Blu-ray for the first time in North America.

    Kevin Smith’s “TUSK” To Get Wide Release from A24

    Are you ready for Kevin Smith’s second (and very well last) foray into fright films? You very well may! His body horror, TUSK, has been streaming along since its unlikely conception on his podcast back in June of this year. However, the film, unable to make the intended premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival due to two extra days of necessary shooting, has thusly been acquired by A24 Films for a wide release in the third quarter of 2014. A24, which gave wide releases this year to SPRING BREAKERS and THE BLING RING, adds TUSK to an already genre-friendly 2014 slate, including the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring ENEMY and the Scarlett Johansson alien film UNDER THE SKIN.
