The Thaw, The Children, Offspring, Seventh Moon
As part of his Ghost House label, Sam Raimi, the horror maestro behind the Evil Dead series and Drag Me To Hell – as well as a few Spider-Man flicks – has brought films such as The Grudge and 30 Days of Night to the big screen. But the “Underground” part of his company is dedicated to releasing horror at home on DVDs and Blu-ray. This year’s batch includes The Thaw, The Children, Offspring and Seventh Moon and guarantees scares with monsters, cannibals, ghosts and evil Christmas tots. The films all look great, and for a collection of fright flicks based on original ideas, the $20 price tag at Amazon.com isn’t scary at all.
