LOS ANGELES! Looking for an awesome Halloween Haunt this weekend? This Saturday night is “Holliston Night” at the Blumhouse of Horrors (the people behind PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, INSIDIOUS, and SINISTER). Just mention “Holliston” at the box office to get $10 off admission, or if buying tickets on-line use the discount code “HOLLISTONYEA”. Laura Ortiz and Adam Green will be there from 7-8pm signing and taking pictures, so come say hello! For directions, advance tickets, and more info about the Blumhouse of Horrors, click here.
HOLLISTON “The Complete First Season” arrives on DVD and BLU-RAY in the United States today. Loaded with over 90 minutes of special features, the set includes all six extended-length episodes from Season One: “The Hooker”, “The Camera Rental”, “Skunked”, “Candyman”, “Laura’s Little Twitter”, and “Weekend of Horrors”.
According to Image Entertainment (HOLLISTON’s DVD and BLU-RAY distributor) the demand far outweighed the supply for HOLLISTON SEASON ONE and not enough units were created for each chain to properly supply all of their outlets. (We know that’s supposed to be bad news- but WOW that’s kind of awesome!) That’s why some fans may have not been able to find it at their local store this morning. Some retailers chose to offer HOLLISTON SEASON ONE only through their on-line stores because of this. We highly suggest that you purchase the show on-line from the retailer of your choice (Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, etc). It will likely be faster than searching or waiting for stock to be replenished and may even prove to be cheaper and easier. Sorry for any hassle, but what great news for the show that the demand was so much bigger than the distributor ever expected. THANK YOU!!
ROCK AND SHOCK CONVENTION – WORCESTER, MA: During his appearance at Rock And Shock 2012 (October 12th – 14th) in support of HOLLISTON, Adam Green will also be signing at the ArieScope Pictures booth for free (as always) at select times on Saturday and Sunday (13th, 14th) only. So bring your ArieScope DVDs, posters, pictures, etc for Adam and he will gladly sign and pose for photographs free of charge. As an exclusive to Rock and Shock, ArieScope is sending some rare items from our vault that will be for sale at this convention only. These are items that cannot be bought anywhere else and that have never been made available for sale by us before. (Sorry! You can’t buy these items from us on-line!) These are incredible collectibles for only the biggest of fans.
Stock will be extremely limited as these are ultra rare items that we have held on to over the years and that were never made in mass quantities. Items will only be for sale when Adam is appearing at the booth as the booth will only be open at those times… so stay on it! ArieScope will not be set up to take credit cards or checks, so it is cash only. The idea behind doing this is to make sure that these items find homes with REAL fans rather than sitting in storage for years or auctioned off on eBay to folks who will only turn around and try and sell them off at an even higher price. So what better place to make these items available than in Adam’s home town and the birth place of ArieScope Pictures?
Below you’ll find just SOME of the items that ArieScope will have for sale at Rock and Shock. If you’re going to be attending the convention, be sure and visit the ArieScope table to see what else we have!
HATCHET 1 bloody festival poster, banned from use in the actual theatrical run by the MPAA. FULL SIZE THEATRICAL PRINT. You’ll notice that this poster does not have the Anchor Bay logo on it as at this point in HATCHET’s life the film had not yet found a distributor. These posters were made for the film’s world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2006 and only 100 were created. Only 5 posters will be for sale. NOTE: there is some crinkling due to sitting in storage for over 6 years now, but if you get the posters dry mounted and framed they will appear (almost) as good as new.
HATCHET 1 festival poster. Only 100 of these were printed and they are unique from the actual theatrical poster in that they have the original tagline: “It’s not a remake, it’s not a sequel, and it’s not based on a Japanese one.” The poster does not have the Anchor Bay logo on it as the film had not yet found a distributor at the time of printing for the world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2006. Some minor crinkling has occurred due to storage but if dry mounted and framed the poster will appear (almost) as good as new. Only 2 posters will be for sale.
HATCHET 1 UK theatrical quad. FULL SIZE THEATRICAL PRINT. Super rare in the US! Only 5 will be available for sale. Some minor crinkling due to the years in storage but if dry mounted and framed it will look (almost) as good as new.
SPIRAL theatrical poster. Very hard to find! FULL SIZE THEATRICAL PRINT. Excellent condition! We’ll have 7 of these for sale.
GRACE theatrical poster. Super rare. FULL SIZE THEATRICAL PRINT. Some very minor damage on the edges from storage but if dry mounted and framed the poster will appear (almost) as good as new. Only 3 will be for sale.

(Prices and quantities will vary.) Sorry, no pictures or prices available at this time. You’ll have to stop by the booth to see for yourself!
For each film ArieScope produces, Adam Green personally makes up exclusive crew T-shirts as gifts to the cast and crew. The shirts are usually made to look like a concert shirt, with the film’s logo in the form of a popular band’s logo and the tour/shoot dates on the back of the shirt. These are printed in strict quantities and only for those who worked on the films. Until Rock and Shock, these shirts have never been made available for purchase by anyone outside of the cast and crew that made each film. Unless you worked on the film – you could never get access to one of these shirts! These will be extremely limited in both quantity and sizes as the shirts being sold are overstock that were either ordered by mistake or in some cases never picked up by the cast or crew member they were ordered for. Sorry, no pictures available at this time. You’ll have to stop by the booth to see for yourself!

Lastly, the mother of all ArieScope items… a SCREEN-USED PROP HATCHET from HATCHET 2! Yes, this fake hatchet was used by “Victor Crowley” (Kane Hodder) when he killed “Reverend Zombie” (Tony Todd) in the movie! Though the blood has been cleaned off, the prop still has the marks and beatings on it to proudly display its battle scars from the movie. The ultimate Hatchet artifact for the ultimate fan. Price: $150.
But that’s not all! There will be more items available at Rock and Shock only! Keep an eye on the ArieScope booth and get in line fast when the HOLLISTON signings end and Adam steps over to the table. Good luck getting what you’re after while supplies last and remember that Adam Green will gladly sign anything for free that you bring to or buy at the convention. He’ll also have FREE pictures to giveaway and sign for fans who stop by the booth to say hello.
