Blu-ray Review: House: Two Stories Collection

  • DailyDead
Growing up, I was a big fan of both House and House II: The Second Story, so as you can imagine, Arrow Video’s recent House: Two Stories Blu-ray collection was right up my proverbial alley. Both films look better here than they did on DVD (which is how I’ve been viewing them for years now), the new retrospective featurettes do a great job of diving deep into both movies, and the other supplemental materials included are a welcome blast from the past. For fans who are on the fence about adding House: Two Stories to your home media collections, I can emphatically say this set is well worth the investment.

In House (1986), we meet famed writer Roger Cobb (William Katt), a Vietnam vet with a slumping career and a marriage that has hit the skids after his son disappeared while visiting Roger’s aunt Elizabeth in her gothic abode one fateful day.

Oh man, good ol’ Society, what a history we have together! There was nothin’ quite like those halcyon days of yore, when as a lowly vid-joe store employee I handed my mainstram horror lovin’ customers a copy of this lil’ sick ticket item when asked for a recommendation. They’d return this sh*t with the quickness, slam it on the counter without makin’ eye contact, then try to avoid the ol’ Ouija Board Kid on all future visits.

Arrow Films announces Blu-ray slate for September

Those cool Blu-ray distributors Arrow Films and Video have announced their line-up of releases for September 2015, and once again there are some real gems in the collection, including Milos Forman’s The Fireman’s Ball, the regular edition of Society (which has just had a steelbook collectors edition released this week) and Sean Connery’s space-opus Zardoz. All the details and artwork for the releases are below….

Closely Observed Trains – released September 27th

Shy teenage virgin Miloš gets his first job as a railway dispatcher and is suddenly forced to confront the realities of the adult world, not least the temptations of the opposite sex. But they in turn are more attracted to his more experienced colleague Hubi?ka and his distinctive way with an inkpad and rubber stamp…

This could easily have fuelled a light comedy, but Ji?í Menzel’s bittersweet feature debut is set during World War II in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia,

If you are old enough to remember the good old days of renting out horror movies on videos you’ll remember the joy of watching the trailers for new releases, even if you’d seen them many times before. There was a lot of work put into them and they did their job well. One I always remember seeing and it left me wanting more was the trailer for Society, just a shame I never managed to get it. Now though, with Arrow Video’s Blu-ray release, I finally get to see the film in all its gory glory.

Society | Blu-ray Review

  • ioncinema
Arrow Video unveils one of the most impressive Blu-ray packages of 2015 with its remastered presentation of Brian Yuzna’s languished body horror classic Society. Completed in 1989, along with the writer/producer’s sophomore effort Bride of Re-Animator, his debut wouldn’t see theatrical release in the Us until 1992, several months after David Cronenberg unveiled similar monstrous sphincter designs in the celebrated Naked Lunch. Though it’s generated a loyal cult following, and was treated to a 2002 DVD release that’s long been out of print, Yuzna’s class conscious metaphor still manages to unsettle with its inspired gross-out spectacle, gifting audiences a finale every bit as memorable as Cronenberg’s early provocations.

Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) has never felt like he quite belongs to his upper class Beverly Hills family. His parents seem to have an unnervingly close relationship with his sister (Patrice Jennings) and they don’t really seem

Celebrating the subversive, surreal Society

  • Den of Geek
Brian Yuzna's 1989 horror Society is out on Blu-ray from Arrow Films. Ryan takes a look back at a grotesque satire...

Bill Whitney’s just an ordinary American high school kid. Sure, he may live in a Beverly Hills mansion. He might drive a brand new Jeep to the beach. But deep down, he has the same hang-ups as most teenagers: he distrusts authority, resents his parents, and suspects that he might actually be adopted.

Gradually, however, we suspect that there might be something more to Billy’s paranoid fantasies than raging hormones - his parents really do seem to be up to something sinister - something to do with private parties, naked orgies, and shunting...

"We're just one big happy family... except for a little incest and psychosis"

Society stars Billy Warlock, a young actor fresh from TV shows like Days Of Our Lives. If this were a straight drama,
