We’ve got just a couple things for you today to wrap up the week...

First, our own Tim Salmons has just posted a review of Scream Factory’s Serial Mom: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray. Do give it a look.

In announcement news, Shout! Factory has just revealed another new Shout! Select title for release on Blu-ray on 9/5 (SRP $22.99): Mr. Mom, starring Michael Keaton and Teri Garr. Extras will be announced at a later date. You can see the cover artwork to the left and below.

Scream Factory also has a number of new titles due on Blu-ray in September, including The Spell (on 9/5), The Resurrected (on 9/12), A Quiet Place in the Country (on 9/19), and After Midnight (on 9/26). [Read on here…]

Shout also has a couple of interesting vintage TV titles coming in August, including Rhoda: The Final Season (on 8/15) and Just Shoot Me!: The Complete Series (on 8/22).

Speaking of Shout, a few readers have asked us if the company’s new Homicide: Life on the Street – The Complete Series DVD set will include the Law & Order cross over episodes, not to mention the 2000 TV movie that wrapped up the series. The good news is yes, there’s a bonus DVD disc in the set that has all three crossover episodes and the movie too, as follows:

  • Law & Order crossover episode: Charm City,  Part 1 (companion to Homicide Season 4 episode, For God or Country)
  • Law & Order crossover episode: Baby It’s You, Part 1 (companion to Homicide Season 6 episode, Baby It’s You, Part 2)
  • Law & Order crossover episode: Sideshow, Part 1 (companion to Homicide Season 7 episode, Sideshow, Part 2)
  • Homicide: The Movie (2000 Television Movie)

The set streets on 7/4 for SRP $149.99 (Amazon has it for just $95 – see the cover artwork below).

Meanwhile, as we’ve reported in recent days, Kino Lorber Studio Classics is working on a new Blu-ray and DVD release of MGM’s A Fistful of Dollars (1964), directed by Sergio Leone, produced from a new 4K master. They’ve also announced that they’re working on The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) for release as a new Blu-ray and DVD 50th Anniversary Edition due this Summer, also from a 4K master. Now the company has announced that they’re going to follow these up with a new Blu-ray and DVD release of Leone’s For a Few Dollars More (1965) in 2018, also produced from a new 4K master. With any luck, maybe they’ll do Duck, You Sucker! (1971) eventually too.

Doppelganger Releasing has set Wes Craven’s Summer of Fear for Blu-ray release on 8/29.

Here’s a look at a little bit more new Blu-ray and DVD cover artwork for some of the titles mentioned above and more (click on the covers to pre-order the titles on Amazon.com, if available)...

Batman & Harley Quinn (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) Mr. Mom: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray Disc) Homicide: Life on the Street - The Complete Series (DVD)

And that’s all for this week. Go check out the new Wonder Woman film that opens this weekend if you get the chance – we hear it’s pretty terrific.

Stay tuned!
