Canuxploitation on DVD: Fall 2012 Preview

Halloween means horror and that means it’s the perfect time for DVD companies to finally get around to releasing some of those creepy Canadian masterpieces they’ve kept under wraps for months. This year is no different, as we see another handful of titles hitting shelves including more releases hitting Blu-ray than ever before.

TERROR TRAIN (Shout Factory)
Release Date: October 16

Fox didn’t do much with the original barebones DVD release of the seminal CanSlasher TERROR TRAIN, and even though it’s not a personal favourite around these parts, it’s hard to deny its rightful place in the tax shelter boom. If you missed it the first time, now’s your opportunity to get all abroad for Shout Factory’s bang up special edition DVD/Blu-ray.

DEATH SHIP (Scorpion) + Blu-ray
Release Date: November 6

This classic, underrated Canadian shocker makes its R1 DVD (and Blu-ray!) debut courtesy of Scorpion–it’s definitely our pick if you’re looking to grab a Canadian cult film to curl up with on Halloween. Creepy boats, Saul Rubinek, George Kennedy going nuts–this one really has it all.

AMERICAN NIGHTMARE (Scorpion)
Release Date: November 6

Scorpion continues to impress with a release of this tax shelter obscurity. Though the company has cautioned that the DVD was sourced from a video master–apparently all that was avaialble–they’ve made it available for a decent price. Either way it’s great to have this rarity back in circulation.
