New Home Releases This Week: HELL FEST, CASTLE ROCK S1 & THE PURGE S1


Join us as we take a look at some noteworthy DVD/Blu-ray releases this week including Hell Fest, The Purge’s TV adaption and Castle Rock.

The first release we’re covering is slasher horror Hell fest which came out late last year. Starring Amy Forsyth, Reign Edwards, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Christian James, Roby Attal, Matt Mercurio and Courtney Dietz.

Here’s the synopsis from IMDB.

“A masked serial killer turns a horror-themed amusement park into his own personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends while the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show.”

Intrigued by this one because of the addition of Bex Taylor-Klaus known to many for her role as Pidge on Netflix’ Voltron: The Legendary Defender and for starring in MTV’s Scream: The TV Series.

Next up is Castle Rock Season 1.

Castle Rock is a horror series that takes place within the Stephen King multi-verse, using different characters and horrors from previous works. The show is also part mystery as the town questions why their particular stretch of land is so tortured and prone to terrifying occult happenings. Some suspect the mine is to blame, others the original founding fathers of the land. Either way, Castle Rock is a terrifying land where only the brave can survive.

Castle Rock features more Easter eggs than even the keenest Stephen King fan could possibly find in one viewing. It also boasts two of my favourite actresses in Melanie Lynskey and Jane Levy. The show has already been renewed for a season two at Hulu so why not catch up now?

Finally we have another series in the form of Amazon’s The Purge Season 1 of course based on the film franchise of the same name.

Based on the movie of the same name, The Purge ten part television series centres around the idea that crime is not tolerated at any time other than a specified 12-hour period of time. Society has benefited from this policy by seeing a reduction in crime and an unbelievably low unemployment rate. During the 12-hour period, all crime is legal. It is up to the American citizens whether they want to hide and try to survive the purge or whether they want to participate.

Amazon continue to step it up both with the quality of their acquired shows and their original content.
