INFERNO: SPECIAL EDITION

INFERNO: SPECIA

I've never been as enamored of the entire Dario Argento oeuvre as many genre fans seem to be, though for obvious reasons I do still hold Suspiria in high regard.

As a quasi-sequel to Suspiria - part of Argento's interwoven Three Mothers trilogy - this Special Edition release of 1980's Inferno has an impressively remastered transfer that really shows off the primary colored bad dream weirdness perfectly.
Release Date: March 29, 2011 from Blue Underground

FAT GIRL (CRITERION BLU-RAY)

FAT GIRL (CRITE

Arguably Catherine Breillat's best work, this gripping, thought-provoking dramas might seem languid during some points. Rest assured that, despite this slowness, sticking around to the end is more than worth it.

THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD (BLU-RAY + DVD COMBO PACK)

THE DORM THAT D

One of the unsung slasher classics of the early 1980s gets the fancypants treatment from Synapse in all of its uncensored director's cut glory. For fans of the dead teenager genre, this is an opportunity to finally see this film as it was meant to be seen.

Highly recommended.

THE SINS OF MADAME BOVARY (I PECCATI DI MADAME BOVARY)

THE SINS OF MAD

This 1969 retread of the classic Flaubert tome is really best know for launching the meteoric career of the undeniably sexy Edwige Fenech. Other than that, there's not much here.

The great Franzois Ozon is at it again with this mysterious film. I've heard it's best to not know anything about this movie going in, and here's hoping the payoff lives up to the hype.

CHAPLIN AT KEYSTONE

CHAPLIN AT KEYS

Archives over the globe contributed to this massive and virtually complete collection of the beginnings of Charlie Chaplin's film career. Although he chafed at the factory-style work at Keystone during his year there in 1914, it was there that he learned much of the film craft and developed the beloved Little Tramp character that would make him one of the most popular actors in the world. Throw away all your old tapes and discs, because this is the real item, in solid restorations that finally allow these films to shine. Highly recommended as one of the best DVD releases of the year.

FUNNY OR DIE PRESENTS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

VAMPIRE CIRCUS (BLU-RAY)

VAMPIRE CIRCUS

Synapse's first foray into BD is a genre-fan-favorite with this 2-disc Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack of Hammer Studios Vampire Circus (1972).An impressive transfer doesn't save the wonky bits from being any less nonsensical or incomplete, but the presentation and extras make this a necessary addition to any Hammerhead's collection.

Recommended.

BASIL DEARDEN'S LONDON UNDERGROUND (ECLIPSE SERIES 25)

BASIL DEARDEN'S

Even given some weaknesses, the four films of this collection are never less than competent and entertaining. In their own quiet ways, this neglected director may have to guide Britain through a tumultuous time into a more tolerant post-war world.
