One of the challenges of writing a weekly article is picking the right subject. I didn't have much time to contemplate it this week and hadn't settled on one until Thursday evening. I knew I'd be out of luck if my choice didn't deliver, but after reading the back of the box, I figured I couldn't miss.
If you've upgraded your system to include a Blu-ray player, then this is a pretty good week for you as August 4th will see the release of a few old friends including Blade II, Hannibal Rising, and Mimic. On the newer end of the spectrum, we have sci-fi/horror hybrids Alien Uprising and The Mutant Chronicles along with watch-it-at-your-own-risk fare like Cravings, The Chaos Experiment, Nature's Grave, and the anthology Slices.
Well, the quantity of DVD releases definitely increased this week. The quality? That's up to you guys to decide.
I've never had the misfortune of being trapped in an elevator but I'm quite certain it sucks. I'm postive being trapped in an elevator for 20 hours would suck even more so. Being trapped in an elevator for 20 hours with two other people, one of whom turns out to be a serial killer, suffice to say that's not a scenario you want to find yourself in. That's the scenario Amber Tamblyn finds herself in in Blackout, coming to DVD this January.
