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.

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

FUNNY OR DIE PR

This hit HBO sketch show is generally hit-or-miss, but, fortunately, it's more the former than the latter. With the second season now airing, there's no better time than now to catch up.

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.

Very little is said about this Swedish thriller on the DVD cover, but the ominous, creepy picture more than likely says a lot for what's in store here. Then again, given the ambiguity, I could be totally wrong.

THE RICKY GERVAIS SHOW THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

THE RICKY GERVA

The content of the show is fairly simple. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant sit down with Karl Pilkington and ask him questions or lead him into conversation. Hilarity ensues and there is simply no telling where the threads are going to lead when the three get going. A large part of comedy is the bullying of Karl by Ricky in his aggressive way and Stephen in his passive way. Many of their insults pertain to the roundness of Karl's head. Some of it can be a bit mean-spirited, but there is no doubt that Ricky Gervais has one of the most infectious laughs on television.
