UK Blues...

Lots of nice shit to look out for in the near future - on Blu-ray in the UK:

Child's Play (the one with Chucky) and Misery at the beginning of October;
Blade, which I personally wasn't a great fan of, which joins its sequels which are already out;
The lovely Prometheus in lots of different incarnations also near the beginning of October;
A dual release of the Japanese head-fuck-fest Tetsuo and Tetsuo II from Third Window Films;
Halloween 4 and 5 for extremely generous prices from Anchor Bay (probably the same as the US equivalents);
Vincenzo Natali's highly innovative debut feature Cube;
The 3D onslaught continues with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter;
The surprising appearance of the Basket Case trilogy... as a bloody steelbook(!);
Company of Wolves, again as a steelbook following an earlier, more conventional release;
Puppet Master II and III from the extremely promising 88 Films (the first one's already out);
The Blood Beast Terror, an oddly subdued Peter Cushing flick about human-moth hybrids;
Joined together for the first time (sorry...), The Human Centipede 1 and 2, in steelbook form;
At the beginning of November, the Ghostbusters return as a steelbook;
Hellboy and The Evil Dead also land in steelbook form, probably lazy releases with no changes to the discs themselves (aaarrrgggghhhh!  Evil Dead should be 1.33:1, not widescreen!);
Santa Sangre seeing its British HD première;
Subspecies, again from 88 Films;
Zombie Flesh Eaters from Arrow (steelbook, plus dual, plus LE 4-sided cover etc) - let's hope they hit the ball out of the park on this one;
The Titty Twister Edition (i.e. a boxed set with loads of paraphernalia) of From Dusk Till Dawn;
An 8 film, 10 disc boxed set devoted to most of the stuff Quentin Tarantino is known for;
Castle Freak has unfortunately been pushed back until January; mine's on pre-order.
