Sorry, didn’t have time to get to all of them, but here are the DVD highlights for Tuesday, August 5th, 2008…
Click here to see it bigger!Baby Blues (2007)
Directed by Amardeep Kaleka & Lars E. Jacobson

A pretty disturbing little flick, actually. One of the only movies I can recall that shows a mother not just killing her children, but doing so in a traditional stalk-n-slash style. The story is about a mother who is pushed too far when her truck-driver husband hits the road again and snaps, killing all but one of her children who plays the traditional survivor girl role this time… Check out my “>Baby Blues review for more!

Directed by Fred Olen Ray

All right this may not be what you would call a “highlight”, but how many other of Fred Olen Ray’s flicks would get a 20th anniversary edition? The story follows a private eye who happens across a cult of chainsaw-wielding prostitutes while tracking down a runaway. They have an obsession with carving up their Johns to further their cultish practices, you see. So of course it’s the dick’s job to stop him!

    Dean and I checked out Rogue over the weekend too. Given my real life uneasiness regarding all things crocodilian, Dean found himself endlessly amused at my death grip antics. We liked it a lot. I loved the tension that was built, and the payoffs. I still hate CGI though, and that’s the only thing that nagged at me. Still, definitely worth the watch, and I think we’ll probably buy it.

  • The Woman In Black

    UC & I watched Rogue last night (his review is forthcoming), and it was a blast. Radha Mitchell elevates every project she’s in as far as I’m concerning. It was a little draggy in the middle portion, but especially the beginning third was awesome. The scenery is unlike anything you’ve seen before. The ending was a little contrived, but all in all, it’s a thumb’s up from me.

    Also, it’s not technically horror, but I really recommend Sex & Death 101, which comes out this week as well. It was written/directed by Daniel Waters (writer of Heathers). It’s smart and funny and even a little perverse. Check it out!
