Woah! This just made my week. I never thought I'd see the day that The Dark Side of the Moon finally got the treatment it deserves. One of the most played VHS in my collection. I could barely make the second photo out, but Nightwish is more fantastic news. Both were near the top of my Lionsgate wish list, but I certainly didn't expect them to even be on the radar for the Vestron line, had they still owned them as I believed. Fingers crossed that Unearthed goes all out for these.

As for The Unnamable, I like it, but I'm more curious what this means for the sequel. I think it's a better, more well-rounded effort than it's admittedly one-note predecessor. Plus, Randolph Carter is less of an afterthought, which is a huge plus. But one thing is certain...

These releases are mine.

BD Wants: Burned at the Stake (81) Psychout for Murder (69) The Hitcher (86) The Rapture (91) Mirage (90) Dear Dead Delilah (72) Eyes of Fire (83) The Corruption of Chris Miller (73) Further than Fear (80) Damned in Venice (78) The Night God Screamed (1971) Scream for Help (84) Black Rainbow (89) Edge of the Axe (88) Endangered Species (82) Bell from Hell (73) Whodunit (82) Blacker than the Night (75) Innocent Prey (84) The Ghost Dance (80) House of Death (82) Cursed (90) Shadow of Chikara (77)

I seen The Unnamable on YouTube once and it was pretty good. It was featured in Stephen King's This is Horror which played on MTV back in 1990 and maybe '91 as well. Great show. Yeah I'll more than likely be picking this one up in the future sometime.

Though Unearthed Films has been around for fifteen years, the company’s recent focus has been the distribution of newer, challenging horror titles and the full-on production of similar content, like their successful AMERICAN GUINEA PIG series. However, head honcho Stephen Biro recently teased that they’re “taking a chance” and getting back to their roots with the 4K restorations of a triptych of Paul White productions, all fondly remembered from the VHS era.

First up is Jean-Paul Ouellette’s much-requested Lovecraft adaptation, THE UNNAMABLE (1988). The film follows a group of Miskatonic college kids who decide to stay the night in their local “haunted” mansion. Unfortunately for them, the old stories are true, and there really is a pissed-off, winged beastie stalking the grounds. Can they make it back to class alive? Packed with gothic atmosphere, gory set-pieces and a truly memorable monster, THE UNNAMABLE definitely earns its spot on your shelf.

Second is Bruce R. Cook’s NIGHTWISH (1989), which finds more college kids placed in peril after visiting a dilapidated estate. This time they’re on location for a professor’s out-there experiments, planning to battle the supernatural with science. And there are aliens, or something. It’s all kind of strange, but there’s plenty of gooey KNB FX to keep you occupied!

Lastly is D.J. Webster’s sci-fi terror, THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON (1990). In the way-off future of 2022, a space crew accidentally travels to the titular eclipse, a sort of astrological Bermuda Triangle that wreaks havoc with their ship’s functionality. When team members start showing up dead, it becomes readily apparent something sinister is at play. A surprisingly creepy, well-made horror that definitely deserves some wider recognition!

A solid trio of films, and though my VHS tapes have served me well all these years, I’m glad to see them all spruced up for Blu. Let’s hope they do well enough to encourage Unearthed to attempt similar titles in the future – I mean, I’m all for exposing newer genre fare to wider audiences, too, but this stuff is much more my speed! Watch this site for further details!



While Dark Side of the Moon and Nightwish will be blind buys for me, I'm gladly buying all 3 to help support this line.

This is great news.
Others mentioned The Unnamable II and the Alchemist, and though they aren't among the first three, I'd love to upgrade both (though Vidmark didn't distribute either film, seems like they should be with Lionsgate and MGM respectively, but that's just a guess).

Looking through the Vidmark catalog I see they have The Midnight Hour. I know the music rights would be a bit of a pain, but man I'd absolutely love to see a blu-ray of it.

I'm unbelievably excited about this even though I've only seen 1 of the films. I have the Unnamable on a less-than-ideal foreign DVD but I may as well not have it. If the transfers on these aren't botched in any way then this will be a label to watch in the future.

Fortunately, after checking out Biro's FB page, I'm pretty confident Unearthed has The Unnamable II as well. I'd put money on it. Browsing FB also showed me that The Unnamable might beat out even Pet Sematary for the prize of most butchered spelling.

I sure do wish that Unearthed Films would release Mausoleum (1983) and Spasms (1983) onto Blu-ray.

Maybe they've got John Russo's Midnight since they seem to be doing Vidmark titles. With only three titles revealed so far this label has already surpassed the Vestron line in terms of exciting titles. Can't wait to hear what else is coming.

MIDNIGHT is owned by Lionsgate in the U.S.. Independent-International owns it everywhere else in the world, so if we don't get a Vestron release there's always the chance some other country will give it a Blu.

As for the Vestron line, I can't imagine people won't be super excited for their next release. I was hoping to be able to break the announcement, since I went a bit above and beyond the call of duty for it, but they're apparently giving it to someone else.
