As I have said in previous posts this week, I am perhaps dialing it in more than ever, due to going to London this past Sunday (which may possibly take the form of a blog post for next week). With that out the way, here is a mid-month news post.
Released on June 7th on DVD and Blu-ray comes the 2019 comedy adventure film, Aliens, Clowns & Geeks, which comes from actor/director Richard Elfman (Forbidden Zone). In this film, an out of work actor gets caught up in an intergalactic war between killer clowns and aliens. Included among the cast are Verne Troyer (in his final film role), Steve Agee, French Stewart and George Wendt. Special features of the release include behind the scenes interviews, a new interview with Richard Elfman, and a music video.
Film Market Entertainment and Sparke Films have announced the Cannes World Market Premiere of new horror film Scurry. Announced so far is Barry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile) who is to be in the starring role. The film takes place in a city under attack by a monstrous threat. A group of disparate strangers find themselves trapped underground, and must try and find a way out while fear consumes them..
June 21st sees the 25th Anniversary edition release of Uncle Sam on 4K Ultra HD from Blue Underground. This William Lustig directed horror is about a soldier killed in an accident in Kuwait as a result of friendly fire. Shipped back to his hometown, his remains manage to become reanimated, and he returns to carve a murderous path across his town during its annual Fourth of July celebration. The press release states 'Uncle Sam is an over-the-top, tongue in cheek satire about American's obsession with military dominance and the great lengths the nation will go in order to appeal to the country's youth'.
