Oh the 1970's when the future looked so bright ...

Oh wait, in the first episode of Space:1999 a space garbage nuke goes off sending the Moon spiraling out of orbit along with the hundred of people stationed on Moonbase Alpha. And there only hope for survival is to find a new home while being trapped on a one way Moon ticket out Milky Wayville?

Crap dude ...

The Michael "Awesome!" Bay produced 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror is getting the combo Blu-ray/DVD treatment September 14th.

The horror ("Based on a true story") begins when a family moves into an old house that was the location of some heinous murders, and before long some evil force begins terrorizing them out of their wits. Classic.

The Amityville Horror has a pretty solid cast with the likes of Ryan Reynolds, Rachel Nichols (G.I. Joe) and Mellissa George (30 Days of Night) that are constantly scared beejeebusless by various ghosts, ghouls and poltergeists.

No word on special features as of yet but we won't let them sneak up on you! Stay tuned!
