Another Actress Stroking the Black Swan

We know what you're thinking -- "Is it possible to do a news story about a movie called Black Swan without making it sound perverse?" No. It's not possible. We can't help ourselves.

The other day I found myself thinking about the bowling alley slasher flick The 13th Alley that I and pretty much no one else on planet earth has seen or reviewed despite a one-week theatrical release last year. What got me thinking was how it has been over a year and there has yet to be any news of a DVD release. A quick web search revealed that the laughable fright flick can be purchased on DVD right now.
