DVD Releases: Post-Halloween Blues



Even though Halloween is over, the DVD list stays huge. Check out the releases for Tuesday, November 6th, 2007…

Click to see it bigger!Blood Car (2007)
Directed by Alex Orr

Though the premise has a lot going for it, something about Blood Car just didn’t work for me. It worked better for staff reviewer D.W. Bostaph, which is why he reviewed Blood Car for us over the weekend. Essentially it takes place in the near future when gas is way too expensive. A hippy accidentally invents a car engine that only runs on blood, and hilarity ensues. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Blood Dancers (2007)
Directed by J.R. McGarrity

Wow, this sounds so much like a porno it’s not even funny. A cocktail waitress decides there’s more money in topless dancing (it’s true, ladies) and immediately meets up with a trio of vampires who become infatuated with her. Then it’s up to the other cocktail waitresses and a pizza delivery guy (!) to save her. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Blood Monkey (2006)
Directed by Robert Young

Six grad students are stranded in the jungle and left to fend for themselves against … a tribe of killer chimpanzees! You see, their professor insists that this rare opportunity to study the species was a great idea, but pretty soon they learn why no one’s studied killer fucking chimpanzees before. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Day of the Triffids (1981)
Directed by Ken Hannam

After a meteorite hits the Earth, most of the population of the planet is struck blind save for a small group who managed to look the other way at the last minute. Their plan to try and build a future together runs into a problem with a carnivorous plant known as a triffid develops a taste for rotting human flesh … and learns to walk. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Horrors of War (2006)
Directed by Peter John Ross

Back during WWII, Hitler had some very unconventional ideas of how to defeat the Allied Forces trying to bring his army to its knees. Our O.S.S. sends a team in to try and find out the source of Hitler’s latest batch of nightmare warriors. The movie is cheese through and through from what I’ve read, an homage to sci-fi/horror movies from the 40s and 50s, so just keep that in mind if you sit down with it. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!In the Spider’s Web (2006)
Directed by Peter Terry Winsor

Another monster movie set in a jungle in the same week? How weird. This time Lance Henriksen stars as a doctor who plans to use a local breed of spider, who like to feast on the dead, as some sort of unimaginable weapon. Not sure about the DVD, but you can read Melissa’s In the Spider’s Web review to learn more about the movie! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Killing Spree (1987)
Directed by Tim Ritter

From the director of the infamous Truth or Dare comes this harrowing tale of a suburban man who finds out that his wife is fucking everyone in the neighborhood. He decides to take his revenge on the loves by utilizing the most interesting killing tools he can come up with, but the dead lovers just don’t want to stay dead. Too bad Sub Rose put such an ass-ugly border around the cool original art, but what can you do? Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Legend of Ogre (2006)
Directed by ?

A teacher and her two students head out to a mountain village and learn the legend of a red-haired ogre who once saved the village. A strange woman tells them of the curse that surrounds the legend, but they ignore it and open a forbidden door that unleashes the aforementioned curse. Sucks to be them! Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Manticore (2005)
Directed by Tripp Reed

A US Army squad is sent into Iraq to find a missing news crew, but instead find the villagers are sitting on top of a actual weapon of mass destruction, a real live Manticore! Of course it’s unleashed and causes CG havoc. Check out Foywonder’s Manticore review to learn more about it. Trust me, it’s not a “Sci Fi Essential” like the cover implies. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Melancholia (1989)
Directed by Andi Engel

After the death of her father, young Mirai moves into a house with her aunt and uncle, but begins to have horrible visions. As everyone around her starts dying she realizes she has to delve into her past in order to stop the visions and find the murder who is ruining her life. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!The Slaughter (2006)
Directed by Jay Lee

Just one … just one fucking movie about monsters that doesn’t involve fucking college students. Seriously, why does every one have to have students as their meat for the beast? Is it because no one really cares about what happens to students? Or that they’re at that stage in life where they’re just stupid? Whatever the case, this one’s about a bunch of college students who awaken an ancient demon when they’re sent in to clean up an old house. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!Werewolf in a Woman’s Prison (2006)
Directed by Jeff Leroy

A girl, on a camping trip with her boyfriend, is the only survivor after a werewolf has at them and the boyfriend is torn to pieces. If course, they suspect her because it makes sense that a girl would tear someone apart. She wakes up in a corrupt woman’s prison and eventually the strange bite she suffered in the attack as its way with her. Buy it here!

Click to see it bigger!The X-Files: The Complete Collection
Directed by Various

Wow, sixty-one discs make up this set, the full adventures of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, who are assigned to the strange cases that no one else wants, investigating alien abductions, monsters, and other strange things that go bump in the night. All nine seasons are finally collected for the first time, coincidentally a mere week after the new X-Files movie was announced. Buy it here!

Better Watch Out for This Shudder-Exclusive Clip



Currently on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD, and Shudder is the dark horror-comedy Better Watch Out (review), and to kick off your week while keeping you in the holiday spirit, we have an exclusive clip for you to stuff in your stocking!

The critically acclaimed horror-comedy Better Watch Out debuted on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD December 5 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Holiday cheer and Home Alone get a decidedly dark spin when a babysitter must protect her charges from a terrifying home invasion. Directed by Chris Peckover (Undocumented), Better Watch Out stars Olivia Dejonge, Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould, Aleks Mikic, and Dacre Montgomery with Patrick Warburton Academy Award nominee Virginia Madsen. Bonus materials include a making-of featurette and a special insert holiday card.

Better Watch Out has a runtime of approximately 89 minutes and is rated R for disturbing violent content, language throughout, crude sexual references, drug and alcohol use – all involving teens.

This holiday season you may be home, but you’re not alone… In this fresh and gleefully twisted spin on home-invasion horror, babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) must defend her young charges (Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould ) when intruders break into the house one snowy night – or so she thinks.
