Music Box Films Dec. 12 releases a Blu-ray collection of two spy-movie parodies from the “OSS 117” franchise — 2006’s Cairo, Nest of Spies and 2009’s Lost in Rio. Both films are French productions that star Jean Dujardin and were directed by Michel Hazanavicius. Both would go on to win Oscars for 2011 Best Picture winner The Artist. The films are based on the “OSS 117” series of novels created by author Jean Bruce in 1949, that follow the exploits of French secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath. The books were turned into a series of spy movies in the 1950s and 1960s. Hazanavicius revived the franchise in 2006 as a spoof of the original films, with Dujardin as Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath, now presented as self-important, dimwitted and politically incorrect. In Cairo, Nest of Spies, set in 1955, de La Bath is sent to Cairo to investigate the disappearance of his best friend and fellow spy Jack Jefferson, only to stumble into a web of international intrigue. Lost in Rio, set in 1967,sees de La Bath in Brazil to retrieve a microfilm list of French Nazi sympathizers, only to once again unknowingly find himself immersed in an international plot. The films use retro techniques and music to emulate the filmmaking style of the periods in which they are set.
Two films from Ronin Flix, the horror film The Lost and the horror satire There’s Nothing Out There, will be released on Blu-ray Disc Dec. 12 by MVD Entertainment Group.
The Lost (2006) follows 19-year-old Ray Pye (Marc Senter), a black-clad suburban sociopath who meets his match when a new girl with a taste for the dark side, Katherine Wallace (Robin Sydney), arrives in town. Together, they are a dangerous couple whose deadly games lead to a horrific and shocking climax. The film is based on the horror novel by Jack Ketchum and adapted for the screen by writer-director-producer Chris Sivertson with credits that include master of horror producer Lucky McKee. Bonus features include a storyboard sequence; outtakes; audition tapes; a “Jack and Jill” featurette; new interviews with cast members Marc Senter, Robin Sydney and Shay Astar; historical audio commentary with horror novelist Jack Ketchum moderated by writer Monika O’Rourke; and new audio commentary with Sivertson and veteran horror filmmaker and producer Lucky McKee.
There’s Nothing Out There (1990), a cult classic that satirized the horror genre long before Wes Craven, was made by then 20-year-old writer-director Rolfe Kanefsky. In the film, Mike is always getting in the way of fun. His obsession with horror movies and their rules dictates that no matter where he goes, he can’t help but expect to find a monster lurking around every corner. But this time, his paranoia might be justified. Disc one includes the film and the following special features: new commentary with Rolfe Kanefsky and cast members Jeff Dachis and John Carhart; new commentary with film journalists Heidi Honeycutt and Amanda Reyes; and new never-before-seen opening sequence storyboards. Disc one also includes the archival features “There’s a Movie Out There,” an interview with Kanefsky and editor Victor Kanefsky; “40 Years of Cutting,” an interview with Victor Kanefsky; an interview with actor Craig Peck; an interview with Rolfe Kanefsky; and the “Copycat” short.

Three classic films — the 1918 Mary Pickford drama Stella Maris, the 1941 Ernst Lubitsch comedy That Uncertain Feeling and the 1959 horror flick Horrors of the Black Museum — are due on disc Dec. 12 from VCI Entertainment and MVD Entertainment Group.
Stella Maris, newly mastered in HD for the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack release with an original score by the Graves Brothers, was a major advancement in filmmaking. Mary Pickford plays dual roles in a film that was very different from anything she had ever done before. It tells the story of two, very different young women; a beautiful, rich, but crippled Stella Maris and Unity Blake, a deformed and abused orphan. Director Marshall Neilan and cinematographer Walter Stradling created some trick photography for Mary to play both roles, using double exposure photography and complex editing which made it possible to present both characters on screen simultaneously. The Mary Pickford Foundation and the Paramount Film Archive partnered to access all elements available in the Pickford collections both at the UCLA Film & Television Archive and at the Library of Congress. Even though the archives were shut down during the pandemic, all parties cooperated to send the film elements to Paramount so they could be scanned in 4K resolution and commence work on the restoration. The two primary elements used in this restoration were a 1967 35mm black and white dupe negative and an incomplete 1925 35mm tinted print. Scans from the dupe negative were used for the majority of the feature, and all surviving material from the print was inserted where possible. New inter-titles were digitally recreated for the dupe negative to match the feel and length of the print, as the cards in the negative were static and much longer than originally intended. The tinting scheme of the print was used for all evening sequences: amber for night interiors and blue for night exteriors, with the rest of the feature black and white for all daytime sequences. Lastly, all the most egregious damage was digitally repaired, the film’s printed-in jitter was stabilized, and the film’s frame-rate was digitally varisped to 19fps, mirroring a more natural, hand-cranked projection speed suitable for 1918, the year of the film’s release. Bonus features on Stella Maris include a commentary track by author and film historian Marc Wanamaker; a liner notes pictorial booklet by the Mary Pickford Foundation; a photo gallery; and “The Mountaineer’s Honor,” an American Biograph short film released on Nov. 25, 1909.
The light comedy That Uncertain Feeling, due on Blu-ray, stars Merle Oberon, Melvyn Douglas and Burgess Meredith. Director Ernst Lubitsch capitalizes on the husband-versus-wife theme. The film follows Jill and Larry Baker, who have been living in marital bliss for six years — until Jill develops a nasty bout with the hiccups. Exhausting all remedies to no avail and believing her problem to be psychosomatic, Jill takes the advice of friends and seeks the help of a psychiatrist. This leads to disenchantment with her husband Larry, causing marital mayhem when she becomes romantically involved with an eccentric pianist named Alexander Sebastian. Sebastian fancies himself “the greatest pianist in the world,” but he is terrified of performing in front of large audiences. Hilarity abounds as Larry strives to win back his estranged wife and Jill comes to the realization she still loves Larry. Bonus features include a commentary track by film historian Mick LaSalle.
Horrors of the Black Museum is available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. In the film, London is fear-struck and Scotland Yard is baffled by a series of strange murders that have plagued the city. Stories of the atrocities by crime journalist Edmond Bancroft (Michael Gough, the same loveable Alfred Pennyworth from the new “Batman” movies) come to their own conclusions missed by the Yard. This is because of the fact that Edmond is committing these horrible crimes himself in order to create material for his writing. He does so with the help of his assistant Rick (Graham Curnow), who assists him in running a private “Black Museum” filled with murder and torture devices. The release also includes the original American International introduction called Hypno-Vista, featuring Emile Franchel, “Registered Psychologist,” that greeted all American theatergoers on its initial release. The film features the classic eyeball-gouging binoculars scene. Bonus features include the original U.S. theatrical trailer; the original European theatrical trailer; a photo gallery; archival commentary by writer/producer Herman Cohen; a 2023 commentary by film historian and artist Robert Kelly; a two-sided cover wrap that features original theatrical art and a flip side with a new graphic design by Robert Kelly; a video tribute to producer Herman Cohen; and an archival phone interview/video featurette with Herman Cohen.
A Roger Corman double feature of the spooky gothic tale The Terror (1963) — marking the 60th anniversary of its release this year — and the comedic horror flick The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) are being released in a special-edition, two-disc collector’s set on Blu-ray and DVD Dec. 12 from Film Masters. In The Terror — with an all-new HD restoration from 35mm archival elements — an 18th century French Lieutenant in Napoleon’s army encounters the ghostly apparition of a young woman (Sandra Knight). Curiosity leads Lt. Andre Duvalier (Jack Nicholson) to the castle of Baron Von Leppe (Boris Karloff), where he notices a painting of the Baron’s late wife Ilsa, who looks identical to the ghostly woman. Determined to unravel the castle’s mystery, Duvalier learns that the Baron has many terrifying secrets. Though officially credited to Corman, The Terror had a total of five collaborative directors, including Nicholson, Monte Hellman and Francis Ford Coppola. In a newly restored HD version, The Little Shop of Horrors is the story of Seymour (Jonathan Haze), a lonely florist, and his hungry plant Audrey, for whom he goes to great lengths to ensure that his green friend is fed and happy. With a cast that also includes Dick Miller, Jackie Joseph, Mel Welles and a very young Jack Nicholson as a scene-stealing dental patient with a high threshold for pain, Corman and screenwriter Charles Griffith give us a comic horror masterpiece that inspired a Broadway musical, which led to a remake of the film that was nominated for two Oscars.
