DAYS OF DARKNESS - January 8th

I dig this cover. Thats all I can really say about this movie, since Ive never heard of it before, but hey I dig this cover. You can talk all the shit you want about the fact that its only being released in Full Screen, or the fact that it has Dick worth of special features (and take it from me, you should be talking some serious shit about that- thats f*cking weak sauce!), but you cant really say anything bad about this cover. Killer neck tattoo and a reject from 28 WEEKS LATER, all wrapped into one fun exploding sun of a cover. Id rent it just for curiosity sake then probably never watch it again. At least its in 5.1 surround sound!

The Goods:

  • Full screen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround

    SAW IV -January 22nd

    Go ahead and pinch yourself, but trust me when I say that SAW IV will be hitting DVD less than three months after its theatrical release. Wow. Three months! I must be old I remember the days when youd have to wait a YEAR before a movie hit VHS just to rent and then another six months before you could even buy it! Now its WHAM-BAM-THANK-YOU-MAM from theaters to DVD in a blink of an eye. This release just adds to the awesomeness that is January, as three days later RAMBO hits theaters. Gotta be thankful for small favors. I give it about 4 months after this that SAW IV : THE UNRATED DIRECTORS CUT is available on DVD, so if youre waiting for that one wait just a little bit longer. They gotta tie it in with SAW V, dont they?

    The Goods:

  • Audio commentary with Producers Oren Koules and Mark Burg and Executive Producers Peter Block and Jason Constantine
  • Second commentary with Director Darren Lynn Boussman and Actor Lyriq Bent
  • Darren's Video Diary
  • Traps and props featurettes
  • SAW IV Music Video by "X-Japan
  • Bonus deleted scene

    CATACOMBS - February 19th

    This flick is currently playing on my FEARnet OnDemand cable service in glorious HD. Its been up for about 2 months now, and I still havent watched it yet. Its FREE to watch any flippin time I want, and yet I have no desire to actually sit down and watch it. I started once, got through the credits but then I remembered that Americas Next Top Model was on, and switched it over. Thats right, ANTM ranked higher on my must-see list than CATACOMBS. But can you blame me? This flick has been given the shaft by both Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures, and it stars Pink! PINK! Why would I want to sit and watch her mug for an hour and a half unless she dies a horrible death. Wait. Theres some motivation for you watch it just to see whether or not Pink dies. If shes lucky, itll be as fantastically theatrical as Paris Hiltons awesome on-screen death scene in HOUSE OF WAX. And by if shes lucky, I mean if were lucky.

    The Goods:

  • Anamorphic widescreen
  • English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
  • Audio commentary with the Directors and Writers
  • Descend into Catacombs making of featurette
  • Music featurette

    BLADE: THE SERIES - February 12th

    A while back they released the series pilot as its own DVD called HOUSE OF CTHULA, and now the entire short-lived series is yours to own. I downloaded a free episode off iTunes and as it was free, and I was able to watch it on the bus as I commuted my sorry ass to work, I didnt think it was half bad. But would I set my TiVo to actually record the damn thing and watch it? No. Would I pay $2 for more episodes? No. Would I buy this 13 episode series on DVD? Eh maybe if it was in the bargain bin, and there was a half price sale then maybe Id rock that shit. Then again, February might be a lonely month, and the only thing that will keep me company is the new Blade and his new group of vampire slaying cronies.

    The Goods:

  • English DD5.1 Surround and DD2.0 Stereo Surround
  • English and Spanish subtitles
  • All 13 episodes, Extended and Unrated
  • Turning Blade documentary
  • Audio commentary by director Peter OFallon
  • Audio commentary from writers David Goyer and Geoff Johns

    DVD Covers:

    Honorable Mentions:

    DEOMONS TRIPLE FEATURE February 26th Because you can never have too many demons in one sitting!

    VAMPIRE TRIPLE FEATURE February 19th Because if Demons arent your bag, then at least you have Vampires to fall back on.

    RED EYE January 15th - Because this isnt a remake of Wes Cravens airplane flick, but an original J-horror flick set on a commuter train

    That's all for this week! Stay tuned every week for your latest DVD news, and as always, feel free to shoot me an email (ammongilbert@joblo.com ) for any & all DVD news, scoops, and easter eggs!

    Thats a very nice hottie pic there.
    I saw "Catacombs" and I'm a P!nk fan. But the movie is boring and dumb.

    Just to set the facts straight: the SAW IV DVD *IS* the "Unrated Director's Cut." The question is, what ELSE can they release it as, in 200_9_, when SAW V comes out?
