ZOMBIE HUNTER available 10/8 on Blu-Ray from Well Go USA

The whole month of October is like one big celebration. Oktoberfest brings beer, the fall harvest brings pumpkin-y goodness and Halloween brings ghouls and goblins.

FROM HERE TO ETERNITY available now on Blu-Ray from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Sixty (!) years ago, Columbia Pictures released Fred Zinnemann’s “From Here To Eternity”.  Based on the novel by James Jones, the picture scored thirteen Academy Award nominations and won eight of them… including Best Supporting Actor for Frank Sinatra.  It essentially resurrected Ol’ Blue Eyes’ film career, though he had to lobby awfully hard for the part.  Remember the horse head in “The Godfather”?  That was rumored to be based on Sinatra’s audition.  Is that what really happened? Who knows… but he’s good, nonetheless. See for yourself, as Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has just released “From Here To Eternity” in dazzling Hi-Definition.  If you enjoy classic movies or just want to see “The Chairman” beat Ernest Borgnine with an actual chair, this one’s worth your time.
