    Hey y'all. I usually rely on the various "end of the year" lists of the best DVDs etc. to get me a few titles that I would have overlooked.

    But lately, I'm really interested in hearing your thoughts on any new releases you've picked up and are worthy to you for any reason.

    If you have a list, all the better. Anything horror or exploitation related is most welcome. :D

    Those would be my two top picks also. I'd add the Rock 'n' Roll High School Blu-ray too...even though it gets a slight minus for no uncompressed/lossless audio track.

    There's of course a ton more coming from Shout! Factory which I'm sure will top the 2010 lists before the year is over.

    Kingdom of the Spiders is an amazing release. I'm really happy with that purchase. I keep forgetting about Never Sleep Again, which I haven't seen in stores in my neck of the woods. I'll order it eventually.

    Never Sleep Again is the DVD of the year already in my opinion. As far as blu's, I'd suggest Nightmare on Elm Street and Arrows region B Day of the Dead.

    So far my favorites this year have been:

    Pontypool (Kaleidoscope BD (UK))
    Hausu (Masters of Cinema DVD (UK))
    La Nuit des Horloges (X-Rated Kult DVD (Germany))
    So Sweet, So Dead (Camera Obscura DVD (Germany))

    I'm really excited about this (these) disc(s) as well, but the price needs to come down. I just can't justify paying $25 for a DVD anymore- I rarely have to pay that much for a Blu.

    I was able to justify it because of the autographed Langenkamp poster, and the chance to win the other poster signed by the entire cast. I honestly said to my wife after the end of the first disc that it was worth every penny. That's something I haven't said about a DVD in years.
