The People Under the Stairs, The Return, The Watcher & White Noise Blu-rays

Posted June 10, 2014 03:03 PM by Webmaster

Universal 100thUniversal Studios Home Entertainment has announced its plans to release four more catalog horror films on Blu-ray: Wes Craven's The People Under the Stairs (1991), Asif Kapadia's The Return (2006), Joe Charbanic's The Watcher (2000) and Geoffrey Sax's White Noise (2005). All four films will be available via Blu-ray/UltraViolet combo packs that street on September 2nd.


The People Under the Stairs

Synopsis: In every neighborhood, there is one house that adults whisper about and children cross the street to avoid. Now, director Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street) takes you inside The People Under the Stairs. Trapped within a fortified home owned by a mysterious couple, a young boy is suddenly thrust into a nightmare he can't escape. The boy quickly learns the true nature of the house's homicidal inhabitants and the secret creatures hidden under the stairs.
    The Blu-ray edition of The People Under the Stairs is presented in 1080p with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. No special features are included.

The Return

Synopsis: Joanna Mills (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is haunted by increasingly terrifying visions of a brutal murder that occurred 15 years ago, and of a woman she's never met. With her personal life spiraling out-of-control, she follows the relentless nightmares to an eerie small town in Texas. There, Joann will discover that some secrets can't be buried and the horrific murder she is trying to solve may just be her own.
    The Blu-ray edition of The Return is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include a single featurette: "The Making of The Return."

The Watcher

Synopsis: After years of pursuing psychotic killers in Los Angeles, FBI agent Joel Campbell (James Spader) wants out. Now his nemesis, serial killer David Allen Griffin (Keanu Reeves), has tracked him all the way to Chicago, just to torment him. Before each murder, Griffin sends Campbell a photograph of his intended victim (Marissa Tomei) and dares him to find her before he strikes again.
    The Blu-ray edition of The Watcher is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include the film's theatrical trailer.

White Noise

Synopsis: When architect Jonathan Rivers (Michael Keaton) loses his wife in a tragic accident, he turns to the shadowy, unnerving world of Electronic Voice Phenomenon: communication from beyond the grave. As he begins to penetrate the mysteries of EVP, Jonathan makes a shocking discovery: once a portal to the other world is opened, there's no telling what will come through it.
    The Blu-ray edition of White Noise is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include:

    • Feature Commentary with Director Geoffrey Sax and Michael Keaton
    • Making Contact: E.V.P. Experts
    • Recording the Afterlife at Home
    • Hearing is Believing: Actual E.V.P. Sessions

Dear Universal, Slither and White Noise 2 already had HD DVD releases, so they should be ready to go, shouldn't they? Great to see you digging into your catalog for BD collectors. On the horror front, it would be awesome to see a BD port of Brotherhood of the Wolf too, the director's cut in particular!

Bummer about the commentary for THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS not being ported over from the Arrow release.

Is there a way to snag a rip of that somewhere does anyone know?

Now give us The Serpent and the Rainbow and Shocker! Then all the good Wes Craven flicks will be on blu.

People Under the Stairs is one of my favorite Wes Craven flicks, don't despair people, it may take a while, but little by little, all our horror favorites are being released to Blu-ray, I know there's already a ton of horror movies that skipped DVD and went straight from VHS to Blu-ray.

The Return was decent. I might grab it if it isn't too much. Gellar really should get more film roles. She was good in it.

Surprised no one has complained about the lack of extras on TPUtS, when the Region B Arrow release got several... Universal really are a joke at this point! Why do they even bother?

I'll get The Return because I'm a fan of SMG, but I'll just import people under the stairs from Arrow, I was waiting to see if Universal would license it to Scream Factory (who at least give it extras - even if they don't really do much for transfers unless they scan it themselves).

was hoping for a White Noise double-feature. I would also like to see Brotherhood Of The Wolf get a decent release like the multi-disc Canadian DVD release. And Crying Freeman for region A, too.

While I'm not interested in any of these, not even Firestarter, it's great that they're releasing their own titles. At least they're not calling Twilight Time!!

Now to the fans of these movies, PRE-ORDER OR GO OUT AND BUY THEM!!

P.S.: Hey Universal, how about Tarantula, Deadly Mantis, Land Unknown, Monolith Monsters and Incredible Shrinking Man!!!

The Watcher is a decent underrated flick. Always liked that one. Hopefully Universal doesn't botch the transfer.

Watched White Noise a last week after I was going through my DVD collection a few weeks ago, sorting and clearing out space for my Blu's. Had to put this in the "keep" pile. Will definitely upgrade on this on.

People Under the Stairs is such a bad movie . I remember people laughing out loud in the theater when I first saw it . Parts of it reminds me of a Goosebumps episode. Wes Craven has definitely made some stinkers. White Noise is also very bad.

Wouldn't be surprised at all if Scream Factory released People Under The Stairs sometime soon. Seems like a title made for their line, and they pulled the same thing with The Shadow and Darkman

The UK TPUtS BD looks like a typical Universal catalogue title (for they supplied the master to Arrow). Noise reduction counteracted by sharpening, leading to conspicuous edge halos. Plenty of film artefacts on show. I can't imagine the US release is going to look any better...

You can get Dead Silence on blu-ray from the UK, and it's region free.

White Noise 2 is available in Region A Canada as a double feature. Yeah, it's Alliance, but better this than the SD DVD.

No special features for The People Under the Stairs, but that's no prob. Just to see this movie get a bluray release at all is enough excitement.
