The Night of the Hunter (The Criterion Collection) on DVDThe Night of the Hunter (The Criterion Collection)
Directed by Charles Laughton
Starring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish

A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, it stars a sublimely sinister Robert Mitchum as a traveling preacher named Harry Powell, whose nefarious motives for marrying a fragile widow, played by Shelley Winters are uncovered by her terrified young children. Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humor, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic—also featuring the contributions of actress Lillian Gish and writer James Agee—is cinema’s quirkiest rendering of the battle between good and evil.

Best Worst Movie on DVDBest Worst Movie
Directed by Michael Stephenson
Starring George Hardy, Michael Stephenson, Darren Ewing

In 1989, a group of unknown Utah actors starred in what would be crowned the worst movie of all time: Troll 2. Now, after two decades of running from this cinematic disaster, the cast can no longer hide from the legion of followers who celebrate them for their ineptitude. Best Worst Movie (review) is an affectionate and intoxicatingly fun tribute to the single greatest bad movie ever made and the people responsible for unleashing it on the world. The result is a hilarious and tender offbeat journey that pays homage to lovers of bad movies and the people who make them, while investigating a deeper story about the strange nature of celebrity, the catharsis of redemption and the humanity that exists in making even the worst movie ever made. Watch the trailer.

Directed by Andrew Cull, Steve Isles

Unfortunately, O Reilly is bringing more than emotional baggage because something a demon, a ghost, an alien? is stalking his every move.

Fear Me Not on DVDFear Me Not
Directed by Kristian Levring

Dogme 95 trailblazer Kristian Levring (The King Is Alive) delivers his subtlest, most unnerving film yet. It's like a reverse image of Nicholas Ray's classic Bigger Than Life. Instead of watching a dutiful dad go crazy via medication, we watch a deeply uneasy father become utterly liberated when he takes some experimental anti-depressants. Too bad the experiment is ditched and they try to take his pills away. Ulrich Thomsen (Duplicity, TV s Alias) is the father even his wife and daughter treat warily in this remarkably taut and creepy look at one man s desperate desire to be comfortable in his own skin. Watch the trailer.

Crowley [Blu-ray]Crowley [Blu-ray]
Directed by Julian Doyle
Starring Simon Callow, Kal Webber, Lucy Cudden, Jud Charlton

In Crowley (review), over sixty years after Aleister Crowley's death, the mere mention of his name is still enough to strike terror in the hearts of God-fearing Christians. When a virtual reality experiment gone awry sends Crowley's restless soul into the body of a soft-spoken university professor, the newly empowered hedonist draws on his powerful "black magick" in order to unleash an occult event the likes of which this world has never witnessed.
