We had heard word that Lionsgate were going to be releasing Steve Miner’s 1989 film, WARLOCK, to Blu-ray as part of the Vestron Video Collector’s Series, but Bloody-Disgusting posted some even better news today: Vestron officially announced that they will be issuing all three movies in HD as THE WARLOCK COLLECTION!
It looks like PHANTASM is not the only fan-favorite horror franchise getting the collection treatment this Spring. Per Bloody-Disgusting.com, Vestron Video has announced that it will be bringing all four installments of the WISHMASTER series to Blu-ray in one volume.

THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD is one of my favorite horror films of all time. Top 5. Top 2 probably. In fact, it was my first Disc of the Week ever last July. Unfortunately the series has been a bumpy road to travel ever since. PART II scrubbed the series of its nihilistic punk aesthetic and turned it into a kiddie comedy. It has some fans, I am not one of them. NECROPOLIS and RAVE TO THE GRAVE, the fourth and fifth installments, are two of the worst movies ever made. They move beyond the juvenile slapstick humor found in PART II to new levels of cringe-worthiness. The only sequel in the series that could be labelled a good movie is RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3. Instead of trying to match the original’s untouchable blend of horror and humor, it succeeds by playing it straight. This is a somber film about the lengths we will go to for love.

This is the release fans have been hoping for and an shining example of Lionsgate finally treating their catalogue with the love and respect it deserves.
It’s time for another set of Blu-ray covers for your eyeballs. The one trend I noticed with this set is that a couple of these are sticking to classic key art. While it’s always a delight to see what artist come up with for new key art (one case in point you’ll see in this post), it is nice to see something like Vestron Video keeping the classic box art alive for their Blu-r
