And we go from the bounty of last week’s home video releases to the near famine of March 30th, where the pick of the week is without question I Sell the Dead. Although, based on its cover alone, the DVD I’m most curious about is 1951’s The Tiger’s Claw (Der Tiger Akbar) from West Germany.
This week sees the Blu-ray debut of fan favorite lesbo vamp flick Vampyres, and who can resist another Bigfoot film? We also finally get to see if the quirky horror-comedy Smash Cut lives up to its promise, and the final chapter of Godkiller: Walk Among Us hits the streets in advance of the full feature’s release in May.
Some of the rest of the batch are a bit on the fringe of horror but seem to have enough of a connection to warrant being included here. In particular Kenneth Anger’s short film collection entitled The Complete Magick Lantern Cycle, described by Amazon as “a major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorsese, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and David Lynch to the pop art of Andy Warhol to MTV.”
