Because fresh air isn't that fresh

TOP PICK — DVD

Psycho: 50th Anniversary Edition

(Universal)

One of the best movies ever made — and still one of the scariest — finally comes to Blu-ray in this special anniversary set. Extras include everything from trailers to an interview with director Alfred Hitchcock to a complete breakdown of the shower scene. The remastered sound is ear-piercingly eerie. Watch it on Halloween with your mom for maximum effect.

DVD

The Exorcist: Extended Director's Cut & Original Theatrical Version

(Warner)

Even after all these years (37, to be precise), very few movies are as horrifying as The Exorcist. The scary classic makes its Blu-ray debut in a two-disc book edition loaded with documentaries, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage. There are also two versions of the movie: the original and the 2000 Director's Cut, complete with a creepy spider-walk.

DVD

The Slumber Party Massacre Collection

(Shout! Factory)

This two-disc set — part of the awesome "Roger Corman's Cult Classics" series — includes all three Slumber Party Massacre movies. The 1982 original — about a girls' basketball team and the power-drill-wielding madman who ruins their sleepover — gets a "Special Edition," including a making-of documentary.

TV

Moguls & Movie Stars: A History of Hollywood

(TCM)

TCM's seven-part weekly documentary about Hollywood premieres on Monday, and it's an enthralling chronicle of the big studios' rise and fall over the years. Interviews, film clips, and insight from experts help tell the fascinating story. It unspools chronologically, starting with "Peepshow Pioneers." Sorry, pervs, it has nothing to do with naked grandmas.

DVD

Pure Terror

(Mill Creek)

Ready for a Halloween-weekend marathon? This hefty set includes 50 monster movies on 12 discs, spanning the '30s through '80s. Despite their small budgets, the best of them — Bloody Pit of Horror, The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, Vampire's Night Orgy — live up to their excellent titles. Prepare for some major butt-numbing action. And pass the M&M's.
