DVD Releases: 4/20/2010: A Peacock Shows its Lovely Bones in the House of the Long Shadows





This week's DVD and Blu-ray releases hit shelves on 4/20, and you know what that means -- a new re-release of Reefer Madness in honor of its upcoming 75th anniversary! Along with that hilarious propaganda flick we have a plentiful assortment of more serious films that are sure to appeal to DC readers.

First up is Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones, which a lot of us missed during its brief limited theatrical run. Looking for something a little more "classic"? How about 1983's House of the Long Shadows starring the holy horror triumvirate of Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing with Desi Arnaz, Jr., and John Carradine in supporting roles? Does it get much better than that?

Less classic, but hopefully cheesy fun are the likes of Neowolf (briefly called The Band from Hell if you're looking for Foy's review), Mischa Barton's Homecoming, Braincell, Surviving Crooked Lake, The Telling (shot at the Playboy Mansion and now being release on Blu-ray), and Fraternity Massacre at Hell Island. Even if they shine like the sun, however, they will surely pale in comparison to our pick of the week: Peacock, in which Cillian Murphy gives an unforgettable performance as John and Emma Skillpa. Check it out, and see if I'm right.

And yes, that is Avatar lurking on the last page of this week's releases. Not horror, we know, but since you're probably going to be picking it up anyway, why not show the EvilShop a little love?

So you like sci-fi more than Dark Fantasy. I still don't get it.

You missed Crazy Heart this time. No love for Jack Prescott?
