New DVD and On Demand releases for March 2014!

933911_10151443621741344_1309589823_nHi everyone!
This month’s new releases are a mixed bag. Topping the list for me is the 1973 weirdo classic “The Visitor” on the 4th and Larry Fessenden’s “Beneath” on the 25th. The rest seem to be mostly on the cheesier side (not that there’s anything wrong with that…).
Bill Oberst Jr. looks great as always in “Children Of Sorrow” and “Contracted” was well worth a watch, in my opinion.
Posters and trailers for all of them are included, and as always, the title links conveniently lead directly to Amazon, if you decide to take the plunge on any of these films!
See you next month!


March 4The Last Days on Mars

lastdays.previewFollows the story of an astronaut crew on Mars on the verge of a major breakthrough, having collected rock specimens that reveal microscopic evidence of life. In their last hours on the planet, two astronauts go back to a cavernous valley on the surface of Mars to collect further evidence for their discovery, but a routine excavation turns deadly when one of them falls to his death and his body is taken as a host and re-animated by the very life form they sought to discover.


March 4Rabid Love

91iiWL5YglL._SL1500_The story is set in the summer of 1984 and follows Heather Ross and her group of friends just after their graduation from college. We meet the gang on their way to one last weekend at a cabin in the woods where, unknown to Heather, her boyfriend plans to propose. They are treated to rumors of a wild bear that is supposedly killing hikers in the woods but do not head the warnings of the local townspeople. Love triangles bloom as the campers attempt to follow their own individual desires and the appearance of a strange Hunter in the woods complicates things further as people start to disappear… and die. Heather is forced to fight for her own survival and find out who is responsible for the deaths of her friends. Is it the jerk Adam? Her own boyfriend? The sultry Summer? The strange Hunter? Or someone (or something) else?


March 4The Visitor (1979)

81f7exP9+AL._SL1500_In this unforgettable assault on reality–fully restored and presented completely uncut theatrically for the first time ever in the U.S.–legendary Hollywood director/actor John Huston (The Maltese Falcon; Treasure of the Sierra Madre) stars as an intergalactic warrior who joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic 8-year-old girl and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. Multi-dimensional warfare, pre-adolescent profanity and brutal avian attacks combine to transport the viewer to a stat unlike anything they’ve experienced… somewhere between Hell, the darkest reaches of outer space, and Atlanta, GA. THE VISITOR fearlessly fuses elements of The Omen, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Birds, Rosemary’s Baby, The Fury, and even Star Wars, creating the most ambitious of all ’70s psychedelic mindwarps. Its baffling all-star cast includes Shelley Winters (Night of the Hunter), Glenn Ford (Superman), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Franco Nero (Django) and Sam Peckinpah (director of The Wild Bunch).

Called “The Mount Everest of insane Italian 70s movies” by Mondo Digital, this one is definitely going in my must-see list!


March 4Children of Sorrow

Dexter is a killer who grapples with fitting into society while, at the same time, he struggles with his inability to feel emotion. The irony of Dexter’s life is that he works closely as a blood splatter analyst with the very people who hunt his kind – the homicide departments.
The DVD collection includes 33 discs, featuring all 8 seasons’ episodes and a bonus disc with three hours of all-new special features.

I only watched the first few seasons, and thought they were great!
Looks like it is time to catch up. Man, that set with the blood slides is sweet!

Not that there’s much for them to do, aside from dealing with the occasional drunk, and that’s usually O’Shea himself. But strange doings are afoot: the crew of a fishing boat disappears, whales start appearing dead on the shore, a local lobsterman catches a strange tentacled creature in his trap. Soon it becomes clear to Garda O’Shea and Nolan that there’s something big out there, and that it’s hungry. It’s time to rally the villagers, arm the troops…and head to the pub!

I rented this one On Demand a few months ago and enjoyed it very much. Please see my review here.

November 12th — Nosferatu: Kino Classics 2-Disc Deluxe Remastered Edition [Blu-ray]

tumblr_mn66jspVTi1rfv531o1_500An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Nosferatu is the quintessential silent vampire film, crafted by legendary German director F. W. Murnau (Sunrise, Faust, The Last Laugh). Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau’s Graf Orlok (as portrayed by Max Schreck) is a nightmarish, spidery creature of bulbous head and taloned claws — perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned. Nosferatu was an atypical expressionist film in that much of it was shot on location. While directors such as Lang and Lubitsch built vast forests and entire towns within the studio, Nosferatu’s landscapes, villages and castle were actual locations in the Carpathian Mountains. Murnau was thus able to infuse the story with the subtle tones of nature: both pure and fresh as well as twisted and sinister. Remastered in high definition for the first time and making its Blu-ray debut exclusively from Kino Classics.

I wrote about this one last month. Nosferatu is finally getting a loving Blu-Ray package from Kino Classics. This one is a must buy!

Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.

New DVD and On Demand Releases for June 2013!

933911_10151443621741344_1309589823_nAfter a few lackluster months in home viewing, June is storming in with a long ass list of must-see flicks available from by clicking the convenient links, or On Demand the day specified (some films not available in all areas).
In fact, this list is so long and varied, you will be hard-pressed to find a good reason to leave the house during the month of June, except to catch Hatchet III on the 14th and (maybe) World War Z on the 21st…
Check out the movies we will be watching this month!

June 4 — Warm Bodies

Warm_Bodies_Propaganda_Poster_1_21_13Honestly, I am still not to keen on this one, despite Nymphetamine Jade’s glowing review.
Only love can cure the zombie plague? Say what now?
You can pick it up here, if you are into that sort of thing…

June 6V/H/S 2 (On Demand)

4fec0c75Just as they did for the first film, the producers of V/H/S 2 are making the film available On Demand before it even hits theaters. The first one had a love it or hate it response from a lot of you guys, but it made our list of the top ten films of 2012 at number 3, so it couldn’t have been all bad…
See my review of the first film here, and look for this one On Demand on the 6th!

June 11Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters anyone catch this one when it was in theaters?
It looks like something fun to watch while drunk.
Leave some comments at the end of this post if you have seen it, and get the unrated version here on the 11th!

June 14thBerberian Sound Studio (Limited On Demand)

Berberian Sound Studioposter.preview

I am really looking forward to this one. It looks like an intense original throw-back to the classics of the 70’s!
Catch it On Demand (if you are lucky) on the 14th!

June 18Detention Of The Dead (On Demand)

detention-of-the-dead-posterA group of oddball high school students find themselves trapped in detention with their classmates having turned into a horde of Zombies. Looks like a goofy good time. Get it On Demand the 18th.

June 18Stoker

Stoker_1I have been looking forward to this one too! So sorry that I missed it in theaters, but our trusty NYC correspondent The Rotting Apple was lucky enough to be at the premire back in February, and even got to ask a question of director Chan-Wook Park!
Read his full report here and get Stoker on Blu-ray on the 18th!
Below is an interesting featurette about the film :

June 18American Mary

amaryukdvdAmerican MAry is another film that has been floating around festivals for a while now with no solid release date. Finally on the 18th we will get a chance to see this much-anticipated original flick from the Soska Sisters, the lovely ladies who brought us Dead Hooker in a Trunk. I am dying to see this one!
Get it right here.

June 18The Last Exorcism Part II

The-Last-Exorcism-Part-2-PoAnother one I missed in the theater and looking forward to giving a watch.
I really dug the first one!
Pick up this unfortunately-named sequel right here on the 18th.

June 21Maniac (On Demand)

13414_608070172537232_721982321_nThis remake is getting a lot of hype for Elijah Wood’s performance as the titular maniac, but the interesting thing about this film to me is that it is all shot from a first person point of view. Apparently you only catch brief glimpses of Wood in mirrors and reflective surfaces.
Sounds interesting, at least.
Of course, they will never be able to top the madness of the 1980 original. Compare the trailers here, and catch the remake On Demand on the 21st!

June 25Dead Souls

deadsoulsart.previewThis one premiered on ChillerTV back in October and is finally available on DVD the 25th. Get it here.
Synopsis :
On his 18th birthday, Johnny Petrie learns he was adopted when he inherits a farm in Maine, abandoned for the 18 years since his natural family died at the hands of his father, the local preacher. Eager for a new life, he leaves home to start over in his new dwelling. However, as he digs into his past, he soon uncovers the horrifying details of his father’s questionable teachings. In a frightening revelation, he also learns that his return has revived decades-old forces trapped in the home and sets in motion a heart-stopping finale to a ritual that already claimed the lives of his family.
(PS Did I mention Bill Moseley is in it?)

June 28 — 100 Bloody Acres (On Demand)

100bloodyacresposter2.previewLast but not least, this crazy Australian flick will be available On Demand the 28th!
