We have kind of a slow week for you, folks. Aside from 1957’s Daughter of Dr. Jekyll, all seven of our other releases are from the past five years, and I hate to admit this… but I don’t know much about them.
I can say that American Mary is always a fun title to watch. Fans of Katharine Isabelle, take notice. You can grab this on both Blu-ray and DVD.
For more information on some of this week’s other titles, from other Dread Central contributors, check out the following links:
Keep checking back each week, folks. Next week is another smaller list, but they will begin picking up again for the Christmas season. As always, pleasant viewing.
American Mary (2012)
Katharine Isabelle, Antonio Cupo, Tristan Risk
Strapped for cash while putting herself through medical school, medical student Mary Mason takes a job as a waitress at a strip bar, run by Billy Barker. As she becomes increasingly disillusioned with her studies, Billy introduces Mary to a new and extremely lucrative sideline, performing extreme body modifications to an odd collection of flesh-obsessed characters. Subsequently forced to drop out of medical school, she soon takes refuge in her new career. But as her demeanor steadily darkens, and her actions take on an altogether more vengeful twist, she begins to be known and feared as ‘Bloody Mary’.
Dark Signal (2016)
Siwan Morris, Gareth David-Lloyd, Joanna Ignaczewska, Duncan Pow
The spirit of a murdered girl returns with a message. Now a stranded woman must team up with the staff of a local radio station to solve the mystery of her death.
Daughter of Dr. Jekyll (1957)

Morgana O’Reilly, Rima Te Wiati, Glen-Paul Waru
Kylie Bucknell is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is all the more unbearable because she has to live with her mother, a blabbermouth who’s convinced that the house is haunted. But soon Kylie has reason to believe that her mother may be right.
The Night Watchmen (2016)
James Remar, Matt Servitto
Three inept night watchmen, aided by a young rookie and a fearless tabloid journalist, fight an epic battle to save their lives.

Radiation from a nearby meteor strike turns farmer Tony Maio in a crazed mutant.
