We may not have all the details but at least we have a bunch of release dates for some very spooky titles...
In a story from DavisDVD, they offer the DVD release dates for the following titles:
On June 5, MGM will be releasing Hannibal Rising.
In Red Dragon we learned who he was. In The Silence of the Lambs we learned how he did it. Now comes the most chilling chapter in the life of Hannibal Lecter - the one that answers the most elusive question of all - why?
Hannibal Rising marks the first time in the award-winning series that best selling author Thomas Harris (Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs) writes the screenplay - reaching back to explore the origins of Lecter's rage, terror and savagery.
The story begins in Eastern Europe at the desperate end of World War II. For many it was no longer a conflict of nations but one of individual survival - at any cost. A young Hannibal watches from only steps away as his parents violently die, leaving his cherished young sister in his care. This horrific moment will soon pale in comparison to the atrocities he is forced to witness, changing him forever.
Alone and without any means of support, he is forced to live in a Soviet orphanage that once served as his family's beloved home. He flees to Paris to find his uncle has died but his beautiful and mysterious Japanese widow, Lady Murasaki (Gong Li) welcomes him. Even her kindness and love cannot soothe the nightmares and sorrows that plague him. Showing a cunning aptitude for science he is accepted into medical school, which serves to hone his skills and provide the tools to exact justice on the war criminals that haunt him day and night. This quest will ignite an insatiable lust within a serial killer who was not born, but made.
Gaspard Ulliel plays the fearsome Lecter, alongside Gong Li, Rhys Ifans and Dominic West. Peter Webber (Girl With a Pearl Earring) directs.
On June 12, Sony will bring Ghost Rider on DVD.
In order to save his dying father, young stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze sells his soul to Mephistopheles and sadly parts from the pure-hearted Roxanne Simpson, the love of his life. Years later, Johnny's path crosses again with Roxanne, now a gogetting reporter, and also with Mephistopheles, who offers to release Johnny's soul if Johnny becomes the fabled, fiery Ghost Rider, a supernatural agent of vengeance and justice. Mephistopheles charges Johnny with defeating the despicable Blackheart, Mephistopheles's nemesis and son, who plans to displace his father and create a new hell even more terrible than the old one.
Warner Bros. will unleash David Fincher's Zodiac on June 26.
It is the ultimate cold case.
The rampage of a madman who has never been caught; the elusive cipher slayer who gripped the nation in fear, America's very own Jack the Ripper. He publicly claimed 13 victims, then more, two dozen more. Police pinned him with seven, five dead. The true body count may never be known. One thing is certain: That count includes the living.
Based on the true story of a serial killer who terrified the San Francisco Bay Area and taunted authorities in four jurisdictions with his ciphers and letters for decades, Zodiac is a thriller from David Fincher, director of Seven and Fight Club. Hunting down the hunter would become an obsession for four men, an obsession that would turn them into ghosts of their former selves, their lives built and destroyed by the killer's endless trail of clues.
Of the four, Robert Graysmith (Jake Gyllenhaal) was the wild card.
A shy editorial cartoonist, Graysmith didn't have the cache and expertise of his seasoned and cynical colleague Paul Avery (Robert Downey Jr.), the San Francisco Chronicle's star crime reporter. He didn't have Avery's connections with San Francisco Police Department's celebrated and ambitious Homicide Inspector Dave Toschi (Mark Ruffalo) and his low-key, meticulous partner Inspector William Armstrong (Anthony Edwards). What he did have was a crucial insight no one anticipated. It first appeared Aug. 1, 1969.
A crudely written Letter to the Editor arrived in the day's pile of mail. One of three penned to the Chronicle, the San Francisco Examiner and the Vallejo Times-Herald, its contents brought the newsrooms to a standstill. "Dear Editor, This is the murderer..." of David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen shot to death Dec. 20, 1968 on Lake Herman Road in Solano County and the July 4, 1969 fatal shooting of Darlene Ferrin and attempted murder of Mike Mageau at the Blue Rock Springs golf course parking lot in Vallejo. He didn't call them by name, but he gave a laundry list of details only the police could know. Each paper was given part of a cipher which, when decoded, would purportedly reveal his identity. It was followed by a threat - publish or more would perish. No killer since Jack the Ripper had written the press and taunted the police with clues to his identity. Zodiac had raised the bar for homicidal psychopaths in the U.S. A Salinas couple decoded the message. But it was Graysmith, a cipher enthusiast, who decoded its hidden intent, a reference to the 1932 film "The Most Dangerous Game."
More letters and threats would follow. On Sept. 27, 1969 Zodiac would strike again, hooded and armed with a gun and sheathed blade, he would stab to death Cecilia Ann Shepard and leave for dead Bryan Hartnell as the young couple picnicked at Lake Berryessa in Napa County. One month later, Oct. 11 the killer had come to San Francisco. Taxi driver Paul Lee Stine was shot in the back of the head in the posh Presidio Heights neighborhood. Three days later a fifth letter arrived, the most ominous of all: Zodiac told police they could have caught him that night. Worse, school children were in the cross hairs of his gun sight. He would pick them off as they stepped off the school bus. San Francisco was literally a city in panic.
Zodiac inadvertently had turned detectives Toschi and Armstrong and reporter Avery into overnight celebrities. Characters based on Toschi would prove pivotal roles launching three movie stars' careers. Graysmith remained committed to his armchair sleuthing from the sidelines, injecting his input when Avery would allow. Zodiac was always one step ahead, covering his tracks, peppering his lettered taunts with more threats. And then they became personal.
Infamy would eclipse fame as Toschi fell from grace; Armstrong, frustrated moved on; Avery left the paper, crippled by his addictions. Zodiac would no longer reveal his targets. Copycats sprang up coast to coast. The key suspect was still out there.
Graysmith's moment had come. That moment would change their lives forever.
Lastly, Universal will be taking out Dead Silence in August of this year. Sadly, we don't have a release date for that title.
From the writer and director of the international phenomenon Saw comes an experience on the razor's edge of fear. Spinning a haunted tale of supposedly long-dead ancestors and age-old grudges, director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell take their trademark knack for scaring the hell out of their fans and bring it to the horror
Every town has its own ghost story -- a local folktale that's whispered around campfires or an incantation chanted by nervous kids at a sleepover that can summon the victim of a brutal murder. And when those kids get old enough, they share the tale with the next generation, passing along the legacy of terror and keeping alive that town's own myth of massacre and the ghosts it leaves behind. Except, in some towns, those scary stories aren't just imaginative tales told to amuse adults and terrify children. Sometimes, they're real.
In Ravens Fair, the story is about Mary Shaw, a ventriloquist who went mad in the 1940s. Accused of the kidnapping and murder of a young boy who labeled her a fraud, she was hunted down by angry townspeople who -- in the ultimate act of revenge -- cut out her tongue and killed her. They buried her along with her "children," a handmade collection of vaudeville dolls, and assumed they had silenced her forever.
Since that time, Ravens Fair has been plagued by mysterious deaths. The ghastly dolls from Mary Shaw's collection have gone missing from the grave and reappeared over the decades in the most unlikely of places. In the still of night -- wherever her children are glimpsed -- families are found gruesomely murdered...with their tongues torn out at the seam.
Far from the pall of their cursed hometown, newlyweds Jamie (Ryan Kwantan, television's Summerland) and Lisa Ashen (Laura Regan, television's Saving Jessica Lynch) thought they had established a fresh start. But when his wife is grotesquely killed in their apartment, Jamie cautiously returns to Ravens Fair for the funeral, intent on unraveling the mystery of Lisa's untimely death.
Once reunited with his ill father, Edward (Bob Gunton, The Perfect Storm), and his father's new young bride, Ella (Amber Valletta, Premonition), Jamie must dig into the town's bloody past to find out who killed his wife and why. All the while, he is doggedly pursued by a detective (Donnie Wahlberg, Saw III) who doesn't believe a word of Jamie's alibi. As he uncovers the legend of Mary Shaw, the town's wayward son will unlock the story of her curse and the truth behind the threat from a rhyme in his childhood: if you see Mary Shaw and scream, she'll take your tongue. And the last thing you will hear before you die...is your own voice speaking back to you.
