MR. BROOKS -October 23rd
I don’t like Kevin Costner. I don’t know what it is exactly, maybe it’s his voice. Or the fact that he’s pretty much the same guy in every movie he’s in… either way, I’m not a fan. So obviously I didn’t check this beast out in theaters, and I likely won’t check it out on video either, based on principal alone. That principal, you ask? The principal that I hate Kevin Costner. But I will say this: this here DVD art is way better than the theatrical art, and that doesn’t happen very often. I’ll give it props for that… but that’s where the props end.
THE INVISIBLE - October 16th
Surprising as it may be, this David Goyer directed flick was in and out of theaters faster than you could say ‘Hey, is that the kid from WAR OF THE WORLDS????’ Not really sure why either, as the concept and story sounded cool enough. I guess we’ll find out this Halloween season, when the flick and it’s crappy ass cover art heads our way. Good god, that’s crappy. Seriously, what the hell were they thinking? If they pimped it out enough, maybe they’d turn this bomb into a sleeper hit… but with a cover like this, are they really trying? For shame!
1408 - October 2nd
Summer generally isn’t a time when good horror hits theaters, but damnit if 1408 didn’t prove that theory wrong. Maybe one of the better Stephen King adaptations out there, even more so, one of the scariest haunted hotel movies since… well, since THE SHINING! Even with it’s PG-13 rating, this flick was scary. And I mean, really scary. Like, so scary, that if I ever wind up in a room numbered 1408, I’d probably kill myself. Ah yes, the legend continues…
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 3-D -October 9th
I love 3D movies. There’s something about that gimmicky medium that I just can’t get enough of. It could be the crappiest movie on earth, but if it’s in 3D, it makes it cool and totally watchable. So the potential of a 3D movie featuring zombies, Sid Haig and pitchforks in your face? Sheit… count me in! Even if it sucks (and it does, from what I hear), it doesn’t really matter because it’s in 3D, and 3D is cool. Not really sure what the advantages are of buying the 2D version, but hey… I don’t really see the advantages of eating mayonnaise and f*ckin yer sister either.
BLACK SHEEP -October 9th
The cover here was also the working cover for KINKY SHEEP F*CKERS, a porno featuring farm animals of epic proportions. The key sequence was the role reversal, with the sheep taking the man from the backside, nibbling his ear while nailing him good. Lucky for Dimension, they picked up the cover rights first, photoshoped some blood and dirt in there, and voila! Here you have it. Black Sheep, unrated. No word if the unrated version features any scenes similar to that of SHEEP F*CKERS, and for all of our sakes, I hope not.
CAPTIVITY –October 30th - Because this piece of crap should be easier to take on DVD… plus Elisha Cuthbert is hot.
THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD –September 11th – Because this undead classic is coming back and it’s here to stay. Watch it with someone you love.
TWIN PEAKS: THE DEFINITIVE GOLD BOX EDITION –October 30th – Because you can never have enough David Lynch.
