New horror anthology "Cryptids" brings creature chills to DVD and Blu-ray

In a digital age dominated by streaming, the resurgence of DVDs and Blu-rays might seem like a relic of the past. Yet, the latest release of the horror anthology "Cryptids" is proving that physical media still holds its allure for avid fans. Led by John Bloom, known by many as "Joe Bob Briggs" from Shudder's "The Last Drive-In" and TNT's "MonsterVision," "Cryptids" delivers a spine-chilling experience that's both nostalgic and fresh.

Bloom stars as Major Dean Harlan, host of the popular radio show "The Truth Serum," where he delves into the strange and unsettling. In "Cryptids," Harlan's broadcast takes a terrifying turn during a discussion on cryptozoology coinciding with the Mothman Festival. As callers recount their eerie tales, Harlan finds himself drawn into a web of terror that threatens to consume him.

This anthology features segments crafted by renowned horror talents, including Zane Hershberger and Robert Kuhn of "Force to Fear," John William Holt of "The Dooms Chapel Horror," Brett DeJager of "BoneJangles," Billy Pon of "The Circus of the Dead," Max Groah of "Bong of the Living Dead," and Justin M. Seaman of "The Barn Part 1 & II." Expect a blend of practical effects and storytelling reminiscent of classic 90s TV shows like "Monsters," "Tales from the Crypt," and "Tales from the Darkside."

Produced by Silver Springs Films, Nevermore Production Films, and Lustenberger Films, along with P.J. Starks (known for "13 Slays till X-mas" and "New Fears Eve"), "Cryptids" promises an immersive journey into the realm of the unknown and the horrifying.

For those seeking a thrilling escape beyond the digital realm, "Cryptids" is now available on DVD and Blu-ray, offering a tactile experience that enhances the spine-tingling suspense of this captivating horror anthology. Step into the shadows and uncover the chilling tales that await in "Cryptids."
