M. Night Shyamalan’s films are known for their endings. The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, The Village, and others all have surprises twists aimed at wowing the audience. His latest film, Split, is no exception—but the original ending was even more intense than the one that ended up in theaters.
Animal-rampage movies were all the rage in the 1970s, with Jaws elevating the genre from niche horror to blockbuster status. But years before the shark it was all about the rats, in 1971's Willard and 1972's Ben. Now, at long last, this pair of skin-crawling classics is finally coming to Blu-ray.

It’s no secret that a lot of footage was cut or changed in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Huge scenes in the trailers weren’t in the final movie. And while some of the how and why that happened has been revealed, fans hoped the eventual home release would include those scenes in full. It will not... at least not yet.
The Vestron Video Collector’s Series strikes again, this time compiling all of the Wishmaster movies into one Blu-ray package. That’s right: ALL FOUR WISHMASTER MOVIES.
