At first accepting only the cadavers provided him for study – those of a few hanged criminals per year – Rock eventually recruits two grave robbers (Jonathan Pryce and Stephen Rea) to secure a better supply of corpses. Coming to the gory conclusion that they will earn more the "fresher" the corpses, the two begin committing murder and delivering warm bodies to the doctor's lecture chambers. Also starring Julian Sands, Patrick Stewart and Twiggy, The Doctor and the Devils brings classic chills from start to finish.

The old couple make and collect dolls that, when not sitting still like good little mannequins, creep around in the night, offing the guests one by one! You may laugh at first, but if they turn on you, you'll regret it...for the rest of your short life!

November 11, 2014                        UHF (25th Anniversary Edition)                  SRP $22.97 BD
November 11, 2014                                    The Compleat Al                              SRP $19.97 DVD
For nearly four decades, Grammy Award-winning musician and satirist "Weird Al" Yankovic has been entertaining audiences worldwide with his parodies of songs by the biggest stars in the musical universe, as well as his appearances on television and in film.  On November 11, 2014, Shout! Factory will release two quintessential Weird Al titles: the cult favorite UHF: 25th Anniversary Edition as a collectible Blu-ray loaded with bonus features, and the mockumentary The Compleat Al on DVD. 
A lot of TV stations have forgotten what "quality" means.  But not Channel 62.  They NEVER knew what it meant. In the cult classic UHF, “Weird Al” Yankovic is George Newman, a daydreamer who becomes the manager of a small TV station that's losing money as quickly as it's losing viewers.  Before long he's programming shows like “Stanley Spadowski's Clubhouse,” “Wheel Of Fish” and “Raul's Wild Kingdom.”  But can Channel 62's new popularity save it from sinister forces?  To find out... don't touch that dial! 
The Compleat Al is the amazing, hilarious and not entirely true story of "Weird Al" Yankovic, the Grammy® award-winning master of musical parody and rock and roll comedy.  The mockumentary takes you behind the scenes, beginning with his childhood years, his high school and college days, and up through his early-career rise to stardom.  This concocted chronicle also contains classic moments from AL-TV and footage from his trip to Japan, and a somewhat embellished version of how he received permission from Michael Jackson for "Eat It."
And to top it off, The Compleat Al contains eight “Weird Al” video classics: “Ricky,” “I Love Rocky Road,” the award-winning “Eat It,” “I Lost on Jeopardy,” “This Is the Life,” “Like a Surgeon,” “One More Minute” and “Dare to Be Stupid.”
