August is one of the hottest months of the year. Now with the release of two separate Masters of Horror episodes on DVD August 14th, it may also be the most chilling month. First time MOH director Tom Holland (Fright Night) dips into childhood fears with We All Scream for Ice Cream while series creator and Co-Executive Producer Mick Garris stays ahead of the pack with his writers' block shocker Valerie on the Stairs. SRP is set at $14.98 each and pre-book is July 12, 2007.

Adapted by David J. Schow from John Farris' short story, We All Scream for Ice Cream stars William Forsythe (The Devil's Rejects) as Buster the Clown, a mentally challenged man who drives an ice cream truck. One day while on his daily route, a group of kids play a cruel prank, with tragic consequences. Years later the same group, now adults with families of their own are slowly being exterminated - by their own children. Buster and his ice cream truck have returned for the sweet revenge that will leave their children screaming for ice cream - and their parents screaming for mercy.

Movie PictureAdapted from a Clive Barker story, Valerie on the Stairs stars Tyron Leitso (Dinotopia) as Rob Hanisee, an unpublished writer living at a commune for aspiring and broke novelists. While the rejection letters continue to pile up, Rob suspects that the house may be haunted by more than just the specters of failed authors. Valerie, a gorgeous but mysterious apparition appears in the hallways; Rob believes that he has found his muse, yet the ghost of this beautiful woman cries out in fear - from a beast in the walls who owns her body and soul. Tony Todd (Candyman) and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) co-star.
