It’s not a huge list of home video releases this week, but some pretty huge films are on it, including The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which is getting a midnight release this Saturday morning, March 20th. But we know that’s not what you’re here for — more than likely you’ll be picking up flicks like The Fourth Kind, Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance Trilogy, and/or (our pick of the week) Ninja Assassin.
The most offbeat entry is definitely Blurred Realities, another trilogy, but this time only one is true horror: American Zombie, a documentary about high-functioning zombies living in Los Angeles and their struggles to gain acceptance in human society. The other two parts of the trio are The Hole Story and American Shopper, both of which are also pseudo-docs about a “black hole” that opens up on the surface of North Long Lake in Minnesota and one man’s passionate and comic struggle to start an unlikely new sport (“aisling”), respectively.
Add in Ulli Lommel’s “based on a true story” D.C. Sniper, the Suicide Girls, psychological thriller Eugene, and compilations from the British series “Mystery!”, award-winning writer Ruth Rendell, and MST3K that includes The Crawling Eye, The Beatniks, The Final Sacrifice, and Blood Waters of Dr. Z; and you’ve got one of the most eclectic DVD/Blu-ray offerings so far this year!
