Late 1980s Los Angeles, the gangs rule the streets, with the Crips and the Bloods battling to reign supreme. In a dog-eat-dog world of drugs and guns, they don’t care who gets caught in the crossfire. It’s blue verses red and if you’re wearing the wrong color it could cost your life.

Carrie, the classic Brian DePalma horror film celebrates it’s 40th anniversary with a brand new Blu-ray package from the fine folks at Shout factory. The new package is going to feature an upgraded 4K scan so the picture should look amazing. I can say this because I just picked up a new 4K TV today and a movie like Carrie should really shine with the deep black levels that 4K produces.

Sam Raimi wanted to make movies so much that he went out and revolutionized the horror genre with Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2. He was not to e denied a career in film, so it makes sense that – when he couldn’t get the rights to make a Shadow movie – he would create his own pulp hero and direct Darkman.
Now, Shout!Factory – a company known for giving cult movies prestige home video editions – is releasing Darkman Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray on February 18th. Once again ‘Crime has a new enemy, and justice has a brand new face.’ This collector’s edition will include new interviews with stars Liam Neeson and Frances McDormand, Larry Drake (who played the villainous Durant); an audio commentary track with the film’s director of photography, Bill Pope, and more. Check out the press release after the jump for details.

Shout!Factory has announced the upcoming release of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Complete Series – a 19-DVD set that will include all 145 episodes from the first series, the 10-episode Alien Rangers miniseries and two discs of bonus archival content. The set will be released on November 20, 2012.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was cheap, repetitive, incredibly hokey and yet, at the same time, oddly but genuinely compelling. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything even remotely like it – and I still think of Amy Jo Johnson as the Pink Ranger!. Is that so wrong?
Follow the jump for the official press release and details of the release.

Whether you consider it a sci-fi/action flick with scathing satire, or a scathing sci-fi satire with action, They Live is one of Carpenter’s best and most thought provoking.
They Live: Collector’s Edition will be released on November 6, 2012. For the official press release – including a full list of the special features – follow the jump.

Dark Skies had the misfortune to run during the time The X-Files was at its peak. As a result, X-Files fans ignored it and others feared it was a rip-off of the Chris Carter series. Instead, it was first [and sadly only] season of a five-year arc that put an unusual twist on history – from the famed Roswell crash through the Gary Powers spy plane incident and the arrival of The Beatles – even further, through the assassination of JFK and even The Summer of Love, Dark Skies treated us to alternate history that had depth, weight and emotional resonance.

Dark Skies is one of those programs that reached for the skies [literally] but didn’t quite catch the public’s attention in spite of being a very high quality production. An intelligent, frequently thrilling alien invasion show, Dark Skies is but one of many one-season wonders that I wish had been given the time to tell their story. Unlike most of them, however, Dark Skies is getting an impressive DVD release – Shout!Factory is making Dark Skies: The Declassified Complete Series available on January 18th.
Follow the jump to the press release; a clip of the moment when Congressional aide John Loengard’s [Eric Close] world is changed forever, plus links to several more clips.
