Latest DVD Reviews

BYZANTIUM (BLU-RAY)

BYZANTIUM (BLU-

After nearly two decades director Neil Jordan returns to the vampire well with Byzantium, and the unconventional result is a haunting new look of those cursed with eternal life and a taste for human blood.

Recommended.

WOULD YOU RATHER (BLU-RAY)

WOULD YOU RATHE

A keenly dark premise, Jeffrey Combs cranking up the camp and a rapid body count lend this low-budget horror/thriller a big advantage in terms of entertainment value.

Far from perfect but well worth a rental.

SLEEPWALK WITH ME (BLU-RAY)

SLEEPWALK WITH

Here's an under-the-radar title that doesn't try to change the world, but instead gives us a likeable, awkward lead character with sleepwalking issues struggling to salvage his romantic relationship as well as find success as a standup comic.

THE PACT (BLU-RAY)

THE PACT (BLU-R

This creepy flick got the raw end of the deal with a miniscule theatrical release earlier this year. It deserved much more and will hopefully garner a much bigger audience via IFC's Blu-ray release.

THE MOTH DIARIES (BLU-RAY)

THE MOTH DIARIE

Director Mary Harron is best known for bringing the character of Patrick Bateman to life on the big screen, but we'll see if she can work similar magic with an ensemble of young, attractive, female actors here.

Fatih Akin has yet to stumble as a director, and I'd be shocked if this was his first misfire. A powerful cast and compelling story should make this another unforgettable gem.

4:44 LAST DAY ON EARTH (BLU-RAY)

4:44 LAST DAY O

Abel Ferrara hasn't made a great film in quite some time, but all signs point to this being a return to form for the director. The presence of the always-reliable Willem Dafoe certainly doesn't hurt.

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2: FULL SEQUENCE (BLU-RAY) Unrated Director's Cut

THE HUMAN CENTI

Director Tom Six has realized his creative dream of making the original The Human Centipede 'look like My Little Pony' with this gross-out sequel. Where the first film implied more than it showed - and as a result created a genuinely disturbing experience - this time around Six holds nothing back in an excess of grotesqueness.

Too bad the whole thing is so sophomorically pointless.

THE DECOY BRIDE (BLU-RAY)

PERFECT SENSE (BLU-RAY)

PERFECT SENSE (

This wonderful, emotionally balanced film was criminally ignored during it's brief, extremely limited theatrical run. There's no excuse to miss it on Blu-ray though, as the leads are fantastic and the story is beyond compelling.

EXORCISMUS

EXORCISMUS

For me exorcism flicks fall pretty low down on my list of preferred horror genre storylines. The premise has little room for variation, and is predestined to include certain obligatory elements. That's what we get in Exorcismus, though director Manuel Carballo tries his best to cover the material from a slightly different angle. But in the end it's another possession title.

CHALET GIRL

CHALET GIRL

There isn't much that doesn't play out as one would expect in this bouncy romantic comedy set in a fancy Austrian ski resort. As much as I tend to shy away from these type of films I have to admit that the cast was charming, the locations attractive and though this one doesn't reinvent the genre it is colorful fun. Just don't tell anyone I just said that.

Well worth a rental if you like this sort of thing. And maybe even if you don't. I won't tell if you won't.

THE INCREASINGLY POOR DECISIONS OF TODD MARGARET: SERIES ONE

THE INCREASINGL

Series one may only last six 22-minute episodes but this IFC series chronicles a wickedly exponential downward spiral of bad luck and poor judgement. Damn, it's really funny, too.

THE GIRL BY THE LAKE (LA RAGAZZA DEL LAGO)

THE GIRL BY THE

Here's a tight little Italian murder mystery, spearheaded by a determined yet sleepy-eyed inspector. There are plenty of suspects to go around, a satisfying resolution and a sidestory that is just as compelling as the main mystery.

Recommended.

SUPER (BLU-RAY)

SUPER (BLU-RAY)

It may seem that the superhero parody genre is pretty one-note and tired, but Troma vet James Gunn seems very comfortable in that area, having also written the completely underrated The Specials. As writer/director Gunn unleashes Super - with Rainn Wilson as a wannabe crimefighter - a weirdly addictive mix of humor, violence and drama with a terrific cast that is just perverse and left-of-center enough that it deserves to become a veritable cult classic.

Highly recommended.

WRECKED (BLU-RAY)

WRECKED (BLU-RA

This is the kind of film that is meant to showcase an actor's dramatic chops, being a mostly one-man show for Adrien Brody as a character with amnesia who awakes in a deep ravine trapped in crashed car. Brody is extremely watchable while the storytelling makes for a very long 90 minutes.

STOLEN

STOLEN

A fifty-year-old skeleton of a murdered child is the centerpiece of this sometimes adequate crime drama that is one of those made-for-TV-esque films that if you came across it on cable you might find yourself casually engaged for 90 minutes. As something you should actively seek out on DVD, not so much.

THE KILLER INSIDE ME

THE KILLER INSI

This grim bit of West Texas noir looks and sounds all period proper, but I just couldn't muster any concern for the mumbly ramblings of any of the characters. For a real flavorful experience, read the 1952 Jim Thompson novel instead.
