To bring this extraordinary story to life, filmmakers Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller (Ballets Russes) nimbly interweave newly unearthed home movies of these original settlers; testimonies of modern day islanders; stunning HD footage of native flora and fauna; and powerful voice performances by Cate Blanchett, Diane Kruger, Connie Nielsen, Sebastian Koch, Thomas Kretschmann.
A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, behind closed doors Frank Parker (Bill Sage) and his two beautiful daughters, Iris (Ambyr Childers,) and Rose (Julia Garner), are hiding a gruesome secret. As a torrential rainstorm moves into their small town and the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret...
Abandon everything you've ever believed about that brittle concept we call "reality" and prepare to enter a macabre netherworld of shadows, fiends and phantoms - a twisted realm of waking nightmares and warped minds, locked away in unrelenting torment. Welcome to the Sanitarium. Behind the walls of the Sanitarium, Dr. Stenson holds dominion over the inmates of a most unusual asylum.
A young man inherits a mansion once used as an insane asylum ... and in which his grandfather died in a fire. When he puts it up for sale, an axe-wielding madman ... who has been hiding in the residence ... threatens anyone who comes near. Who is this deranged murderer ... And why are the local townspeople acting so strange?
The Gryphon is a serial killer with a flair for the dramatic - and a grisly trophy case of victims. But when he sets out to add shy, young secretary Wendy Alden (Danielle Harris) to his macabre collection, he gets more than he bargained for. Unfortunately, Wendy's escape from his first assault only deepens the killer's twisted obsession - and affection - for her.
In celebration of YESTERDAY's release of UNIVERSAL CLASSIC MONSTERS: The Essential Collection, and HALLOWEEN TODAY we have an embeddable slideshow of rarely seen images from the films! Even in black and white, these creatures continue to haunt and horrify audiences.
DVD Review BASKET CASE 3
The further adventures of Duane and his malformed, formerly conjoined twin brother Belial stick in my memory as a case of director Frank Henenlotter going to the well one too many times. That opinion could change, given that it's been at least 15 years since I've seen this second sequel, but I have a bad feeling it won't.
DVD Review DARK SHADOWS (BLU-RAY)
Despite a slew of bad reviews, I'm still excited to see what Tim Burton has in store for the great character of Barnabas Collins. At worst, it sure looks like Depp is having a blast with the role.
Mary Pickford is known today as the first film actress to achieve international super stardom. Funny, feisty and diminutive, she was also the first actor to have complete artistic control of her films. And because Pickford chose to work with the best directors, writers, craftsmen and editors, what incredible films they are. These three titles, newly mastered with full orchestral scores, demonstrate the star's commitment to excellence and the brilliant range of her acting. Featuring Sparrows, The Poor Little Rich Girl and The Hoodlum.

In 1980 Hammer took over the old Hampden Manor House in the heartland of England and produced a series of thirteen horror stories to air on British television. With a host of Hammer regulars, including Peter Cushing and Denholm Elliott, classic thespians including Brian Cox, Patricia Quinn, Georgina Hale, Diana Dors and Kathryn Leigh Scott, along with early appearances by actors like Pierce Brosnan, each episode provides a completely new and individual tale of terror and suspense.

DVD Review IN A GLASS CAGE (BLU-RAY)
This cult classic is among the most notorious art house shockers ever made. Considered by some to push the envelope even more than the likes of Pasolini's Salo, there's no better time to check it out than now, thanks to this packed Blu-ray release.

This September, two of the greatest, as well as the most unorthodox, films about World War II will come to the Criterion Collection, in both Blu-ray and DVD editions. Terrence Malick's star-studded (Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Woody Harrelson), multiple-Oscar-nominated James Jones adaptation The Thin Red Line is a staggering accomplishment, a profoundly moving, existential trip to war's heart of darkness, set during the battle for Guadalcanal. And Nagisa Oshima's extraordinarily bold Japanese POW camp drama Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, starring David Bowie as a mysterious prisoner targeted by an obsessive camp commander, is one of the controversial director's most acclaimed and beloved films. Plus, two jazzy sixties hits—Godard's Breathless, with Jean-Paul Belmondo, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, and Stanley Donen's Charade, starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant—come out in new Criterion Blu-ray editions.
DVD Review TEMPEST
The fall of the Tsars has proven to be fertile ground for filmic drama, but one of the earlier of these efforts was John Barrymore's Tempest, produced only a decade after the events depicted. With a story written by a Russian, and a screenplay co-written by an uncredited Erich von Stroheim, it certainly promises to be interesting.
