Scream Factory is just unstoppable this year, with another batch of summer Blu-ray/DVD titles in the pipe. This August, they're rolling out four more cult & horror titles: a double-feature set of obscure slasher X-Ray with the twisty giallo Schizoid; Larry Cohen's comic monster flick Q: The Winged Serpent; and alien action-thriller Dark Angel. Here's the full breakdown on each:
X-Ray (aka Hospital Massacre), starring former Playboy Playmate Barbi Benton, was featured in our Be Kind, Rewind feature series, as it's previously been available only on VHS. It makes its Blu debut as half of a double-feature combo pack with Schizoid, a sleazy giallo-style thriller with legendary movie madman Klaus Kinski (as a therapist, no less!). The DVD presents both features in anamorphic widescreen (1.78:1) and Dolby Digital Stereo, and the Blu-ray in 1080p high-definition widescreen and DTS-HD master audio stereo. Bonus features on this set include an interview with Schizoid actress Donna Wilkes, the Schizoid theatrical trailer, and an interview with X-Ray director Boaz Davidson. It's slated for release on August 20th (preorder now at this link).
Larry Cohen's insane 1982 cult classic Q: The Winged Serpent, starring Cohen regular Michael Moriarty, David Carradine (Kill Bill) and Richard Roundtree (Shaft), plus a wicked stop-motion monster, gets the Special Edition Blu-ray treatment with newly-recorded audio commentary with Cohen, as well as the theatrical trailer and teaser. It's presented in 1080p high-def widescreen (1.78:1) with DTS-HD master audio, and will be released on August 27 (preorder here).
Dark Angel (aka I Come In Peace) stars Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) as a Houston narcotics cop whose undercover investigation is complicated by an alien invader who preys on humans for their endorphins. Bonus features include interviews with Lundgren, co-star Brian Benben and director Craig R. Baxley, and the theatrical trailer. It's also presented in 1080p with DTS-HD master audio, and will drop on August 27th (preorder here).
