Last year, Alex Winter returned alongside Keanu Reeves in the long-anticipated Bill and Ted Face the Music. But he also got musical in another way last year by directing Zappa, a documentary about famed musician Frank Zappa, who released a whopping 62 albums across his lifetime, dabbling in rock, pop, jazz, jazz fusion, orchestral arrangements and musique concrète.
With unprecedented access to the musician’s estate, Zappa is a chronicle of the musician’s life and career, from his humble beginnings sleeping inside the recording studio to selling out stadiums around the world. If you missed the movie when it was released last fall, you can catch it on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD starting tomorrow, March 2. In fact, we’re giving away a Blu-ray copy of Zappa signed by Alex Winter himself. Read More »

When was the last time you saw a unique approach to a zombie movie?
Blood Quantum, written and directed by Rhymes for Young Ghouls‘ Jeff Barnaby, does something a little different. Instead of a typical zombie outbreak that infects everyone on the planet, this movie’s outbreak runs into a roadblock when it comes to an indigenous tribe called the Red Crow: its members are immune to the virus. So what happens when the Red Crow establish their own stronghold and non-indigenous survivors want protection? I won’t spoil anything, but the situation gets very, very bloody.
The movie is currently streaming on the horror-centric subscription service Shudder, but since it’s about to hit VOD, Digital HD, DVD, and Blu-ray in just a few days, we’re giving away two Blu-ray copies of Blood Quantum. Read on to find out how to win. Read More »
