Phantasm (Blu-ray)

One of the best low-budget horror films of the 1970s, Phantasm has acquired a large cult following for its creepy visuals and a formidable villain in the arachnoid undertaker known as the "Tall Man" (Angus Scrimm). A standard, albeit effective horror film for most of its length, it suddenly veers off into science fiction territory for its bizarre conclusion, presenting a slew of fresh and frightening ideas along the way.

Bubba-Ho-Tep (Blu-ray)

An ancient evil finds resistance in the most unlikely of places in this oddball comedy horror effort from Phantasm director Don Coscarelli. Resting in the confines of a Mud Creek, TX, nursing home after fading into obscurity following his departure from the limelight, an aging and embittered Elvis (Bruce Campbell) befriends a delusional patient named Jack (Ossie Davis) who claims to be John F. Kennedy.
