This was an idea with potential, as it’s easy to see the Blade character getting into mix-ups for years with all those evil vampires running around, but it didn’t make it past the first season. Nonetheless, New Line is giving it a proper DVD release for the fans, following the separate release of the two-hour pilot. And he’s got a lady friend to fight with him this time, too! Listen to our interview with star Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones to hear what it was like; then check out the “Blade: The Series” DVD review to learn more! Buy it here!
Definitely not a highlight in the directing career of former effects man William Butler, but then you can do much worse than Furnace, too. The story is about a detective investigating a string of mysterious deaths in Blackgate Penitentiary, unaware that they’re being caused by the ghost of a little girl burned alive in the jail’s furnace years before. But then, how would you be able to make that connection anyway? I guess you’ll have to watch it to find out, or just read our Furnace DVD review to learn more. Buy it here!
Hate 2O (2007)
Directed by Alex Infascelli
Strange how familiar this seems, almost like it’s been on a DVD release list before. But we’ll go forward, since I know for sure it’s out this week. The story is about a group of girlfriends who head out to a retreat for a purifying water fast. How new age. One girl is ridiculed because of her docile nature, but when she removes the only link she has to her unborn sister, a sister absorbed by her before her birth, things go all to hell. Buy it here!
Apparently one of those rare films that come along now and then which manage to give Bigfoot a bad name. It’s really too bad, too; the guy deserves better if you ask me. A badly-designed Sasquatch and unconvincing characters permeate Primal, causing many a monster movie fan to not be able to make it more than about 30 minutes into it. Be sure to read our Primal DVD review for more criticism! Buy it here!
Gotta admit, if nothing else this one sure has an eye-catching cover. The story follows a group of brutal vampires who live in a desolate hotel, awaiting the human sacrifice that will resurrect their messiah. Sexy and surprising, or so says the product description, from what I could find this one’s actually not too bad. The fact that it stars American Gangster’s Armand Assante doesn’t hurt, that’s for sure. Buy it here!
