"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

MVD is proud to announce two new labels for collectors…
Like the recently launched MVD Rewind Collection, these two new brands have their own distinct "personality" (the "Rewind" brand focuses on titles from the "video store era" and loads them with bonus content and more), but these two new labels offer something a little different… a little simpler and (in most cases) a little less expensive.
MVD MARQUEE COLLECTION will feature a mixture of major and independent studio product for Blu-ray and DVD. Titles in "Marquee" might be a little too new to be considered "cult" but old enough to be "catalog". Some of these are titles that will be new to Blu-ray and some will be re-releases of titles that have gone out of print and we're bringing back.
street date
Walking Tall (2004) (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]
Crazy Six [Blu-ray]
Blast [Blu-ray]
Barbershop (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]
Barbershop 2: Back In Business (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]
Beauty Shop [Blu-ray]
Out Of Time (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]
Windtalkers (2-Disc Ultimate Edition: Theatrical Cut + Director's Cut) [Blu-ray]
Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction (Special Edition) [Blu-ray] 760137162384 MVD1623BR 11/13/2018 10/09/18 $29.95
Memories Of Me [Blu-ray] 760137163183 MVD1631BR 11/27/2018 10/23/18 $24.95
and more to come…
MVD CLASSICS will be titles that kinda fall in between the MVD Rewind Collection and the MVD Marquee Collection. They might be a little too "obscure" for those labels and some releases might be DVD only (if it's a title that doesn't exist in HD or was shot in SD). We wanted to create a "brand" or "home" for the films we acquire and consider to be "other" titles and "MVD Classics" fit the bill.
street date
Label curator Eric D. Wilkinson explains the differences between each line and what they hope to accomplish…

Pricing: One of our goals here with these two new labels is to keep the prices down. In order to do that it means using existing transfers and all previously available bonus material. For both "Marquee" and "Classics", some of these titles may have been released on DVD in the past with bonus material and then released later on a movie-only Blu-ray and the studio didn't include the previously available bonus material. We aim to correct that by marrying the previously available bonus material with our Blu-rays so you can finally get rid of those old DVDs. In some cases there won't be any bonus material. Shooting interviews and documentaries drive the costs up and our goal here is to bring you the movies and make them as affordable as possible. But if there was bonus features available in the past, we'll do our best to include them here, all on the same disc.

Transfers: With these new labels / brands we're going to use what's given to us because it's about keeping the costs down and passing those savings on to consumers. In many cases some of these titles will have been previously released on Blu-ray early on with a half decent transfer BUT using the MPEG-2 codec. If we are provided the same transfer / master as before we'll be using the H.264/AVC codec and in many cases a BD-50 to give the transfer as much breathing room as possible. IF we do a new transfer we'll let you know. It might affect the price a little, but we'll make sure you are aware!

Slipcovers: Like the MVD Rewind Collection THE FIRST PRESSINGS FROM "MARQUEE" AND "CLASSICS" WILL ONLY HAVE SLIPCOVERS. After that sells out, no more slips. If consumers collect slips, my recommendation is to pre-order. Anything past street date is not guaranteed to have a slip.

Neither "Marquee" or "Classics" will be numbered.

From the Big Screen:

"Rampage," "Isle of Dogs," "Super Troopers 2," "I Feel Pretty" and "Blumhouse's Truth or Dare." For more information on other releases this week, see the Weekly Guide to Home Video Releases.

This Week's Best Bets:

"Woman Is the Future of Man/Tale of Cinema: Two Films By Hong Sangsoo" (2004/2005): This collection brings together "Woman is the Future of Man" and "Tale of Cinema," the fifth and sixth films by Hong Sangsoo, the masterful South Korean filmmaker who has been favorably compared to that great French observer of human foibles, Eric Rohmer. "Woman is the Future of Man" tells of two long-time friends, a filmmaker (Kim Taewoo) and a teacher (Yoo Jitae), who have had an photo for Woman Is the Future of Man/Tale of Cinema: Two Films By Hong Sangsoo affair with the same woman (Sung Hyunah). The friends decide to meet the girl one more time and see what happens. "Tale of Cinema" uses the trope of a film within a film to tell two stories, that of a depressive young man (Lee Kiwoo) who forms a suicide pact with a friend (Uhm Jiwon); and the tale of a filmmaker (Kim Sangkyung) who sees a film that he believes was based on his life, and who meets the actress from the film with a view to turning their onscreen relationship into reality. With these critically acclaimed films, presented here in high definition for the first time with a wealth of extras, Hong Sangsoo employs his idiosyncratic, measured style to create two compelling and truthful tapestries of human emotion and behavior. On Blu-ray from Arrow Academy/MVD Entertainment.

"sex, lies, and videotape"(1989): With his provocative feature debut, 26-year-old Steven Soderbergh trained his focus on the complexities of human intimacy and deception in the modern age. Housewife Ann (Andie MacDowell) feels distant from her lawyer husband, John (Peter Gallagher), who is sleeping with her sister (Laura San Giacomo). When John’s old friend Graham (a magnetic, Cannes-award-photo for sex, lies, and videotapewinning James Spader) comes to town, Ann is drawn to the soft-spoken outsider, eventually uncovering his startling private obsession: videotaping women as they confess their deepest desires. A piercingly intelligent and flawlessly performed chamber piece, in which the video camera becomes a charged metaphor for the characters’ isolation, the Palme d’Or–winning "sex, lies, and videotape" changed the landscape of American film, helping pave the way for the thriving independent scene of the 1990s. On DVD and Blu-ray, with new, restored 4K digital transfer, supervised by director Steven Soderbergh, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray. From The Criterion Collection.

"Doom Asylum" (1987): If you thought "Sex and the City 2" was a stomach-churner, you ain't seen nothing yet. Long before playing one of Carrie Bradshaw's best gal pals, actress Kristen Davis found herself up against an altogether different kind of horror in 1987's" Doom Asylum": a riotous mix of gore, gags and goth girl groups galore. When a group of horny teens wind up on the grounds of a creepy abandoned asylum, they think they've found the perfect place to party. Little do they know that inside the building's crumbling walls lurks a freakishly photo for Doom Asylum deformed maniac, driven to madness by the tragic loss of his fiancée in a car accident. With an array of grisly surgical tools at his disposal, it's only a matter of time before the youngsters begin meeting various splattery ends at the hands of the ghoulish Coroner. Brand new 2K restoration from the original camera negative. On Blu-ray from Arrow Video/MVD Entertainment.

"The Case of the Scorpion's Tail" (1971): One of the major consequences of Western Europe's post-war Economic Miracle was the proliferation of international travel. Eager to tap into audiences' desire to experience the glamor of the jet set lifestyle, the popular filmmakers of the day rushed to make the most of the exotic locales at their disposal. Arguably no other giallo captured this trend as vividly as "The Case of the Scorpion's Tail." The film begins in London, where Lisa Baumer (Evelyn Stewart) learns that her husband has died in a freak plane accident. Summoned to Athens to collect his generous life insurance policy, she soon discovers that others besides herself are keen to get their hands on the money — and are willing to kill for it. Meanwhile, private detective Peter Lynch (George Hilton) arrives to investigate irregularities in the insurance claim. Teaming up with a beautiful reporter, Cléo Dupont (Anita Strindberg), Lynch resolves to unearth the truth … before he too ends up on the wrong end of the murderer's straight razor. The second giallo by genre master Sergio Martino, "The Case of the Scorpion's Tail" combines stunning views of Athens and the Greek coastline with brutal bursts of violence, a typically tangled script by Ernesto Gastaldi ("Death Walks on High Heels"), and a cast overflowing with Euro cult talent. Brand new 4K restoration of the film from the original camera negative. On Blu-ray from Arrow Video/MVD Entertainment.

photo for Irma La Douce
"Irma La Douce" (1963): The stars and director of "The Apartment" reunite in the bawdy, charming and romantic farce about a French policeman (Lemmon) who falls in love with a prostitute. To keep his beloved, the proud and profitable lady of the streets Irma la Douce (MacLaine), off the streets, he disguises himself as Lord X, who immediately becomes Irma's sole client and means of support. But what's a jealous boyfriend to do when the illustrious Irma claims that the man she's really in love with is not the smitten Nestor, but the dotty old Lord himself? The wonderful character actors Lou Jacobi and Herschel Bernardi co-star in this classic comedy co-written and directed by the great Billy Wilder. André Previn won an Oscar for his rousing score. The film also received Oscar nominations for Best Actress in a leading role (MacLaine) and Best Cinematography, Color (Joseph LaShelle). Brand new HD master from a 4K scan of the original camera negative. On Blu-ray from Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

From TV to Disc:

 The Terrifying Psychological Thriller Arrives on

4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, and DVD on September 4 from Lionsgate

A family’s darkest secrets surface when Hereditary arrives on 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), and DVD September 4 from Lionsgate. Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette “is raw, almost feral, making us feel in our marrow what it’s like to be a mother losing control of her family and maybe her mind” (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly) in this riveting film from writer-director Ari Aster (Munchausen, The Strange Thing About the Johnsons) about a grieving family haunted by tragic and disturbing events. From the producers of The Witch and Split, Hereditary is being lauded as “a new horror classic” by the Los Angeles Times and as “this generation’s The Exorcist” by Time Out New York. The Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh horror film also stars Alex Wolff (Patriot’s Day, My Friend Dahmer), newcomer Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd (TV’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”), and Gabriel Byrne (The Man in the Iron Mask, TV’s “Vikings”).

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

Take home Hereditary and go behind the scenes with the cast and crew in a featurette exclusive to the home entertainment release, offering a revealing account of what it took to create this harrowing tale. Also included in the home entertainment release are nine never-before-seen deleted scenes and an “Evil in Miniature” photo gallery. Experience four times the resolution of full HD with 4K along with Dolby Vision™ HDR, which brings entertainment to life through ultravivid picture quality.  When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. The Hereditary 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $42.99, $39.99, and $29.95, respectively.
