Buffy the Vampire Slayer Coming to Blu-ray

Published

on

Right away, don’t get your hopes up if you’re thinking this is about the TV series. Nope, this is 20th Century Fox announcing that the 1992 comedy/horror film Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be getting a 25th anniversary release on Digital HD on October 2nd with a Blu-ray/DVD release on October 3rd.

The special features include a featurette, the theatrical trailer, and TV spots plus a 5.1 audio mix. Apart from that, there’s not too much to report here.

Directed by Fran Rubel Kuzui and written by Joss Whedon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer stars Kristy Swanson, Luke Perry, Donald Sutherland, Rutger Hauer, and Paul Reubens.

Okay, story time: When I was a young lad, I saw this movie and adored the scene where Buffy used hairspray and a lighter to create a fireball. So, in my warped, idiotic, prepubescent mind, I figured I’d reenact that scene…in the second floor of my childhood clubhouse. Let’s just say the first two times where a success but then things got out of control when some flaming hairspray fell between the floorboards onto a pile of dead leaves. One massive fire later and I was grounded for my entire summer vacation. It was years before my parents trusted me to watch a PG-13 film on my own again.

Synopsis:
For pampered cheerleader Buffy, the only thing worse than discovering that her town is infested with vampires is being told it’s up to her to defeat them all – including their creepy leader! But, with help from a mysterious stranger and a handsome mechanic, Buffy’s soon kicking serious vampire butt in this cult classic!

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
