THE LAST WINTER - July 22nd
Also known as 'the last movie to ever feature a dead naked man on the cover.' While the reviews weren't as solid as expected, anytime you have Ron Perlman up in the mix, chewing bubble gum and kicking ass, I'm all game. And a snow-covered setting? Shit... But this naked corpse... I don't know fellas, not sure if that was the smartest move for a DVD cover... now a naked chick corpse... that would sell DVDs!
THE RUINS - July 8th
Two words for the release of this DVD: perfect timing. It's summer time, people are spending more and more time in their yards, doing yard work, and hanging out in the backyard. And there's nothing more terrifying than having this looming thought in the back of your head that those annoying vines your ripping out could potentially come alive and rip you apart, then eat the meat and skin off your bloody bones. Ya for summer! Ya for killer plants!
This may be a piece of crap featuring Pacey from 'Dawson's Creek,' but holy hell is it packed with enough special features to blow your mind and then some. Seriously, all these special features for this??? A pimped out borefest is still a borefest, but at least there's some other shite here to keep you occupied. Not worth taking home, of course, but I could see renting this beast on a dark and lonely... and I stress lonely... night. Plus, did I mention Rachael Taylor???
SURVIVAL - August 12th
I checked this beast out on a bootleg DVD and was blown away by the production value, the savageness of the serial killers, and the good-time throwback to the grindhouse era of '70s filmmaking. And thanks to the good folks at York Entertainment, you too will get the opportunity to experience SURVIVAL for yourself. You'll never want to get lost in the backwoods again...
THE HIVE –August 5th – Because the cover is awesome, and (to me) there's nothing scarier than a hive of insects, be that bees or ants. You have a hive of bugs, you have me running in the opposite direciton.
THE CURIOUS CASE OF THE CAMPUS CORPSE –July 22nd – Because the title is long and intriguing. Seriously, what the shit is this about???
SIDE SHO – June 29th - Because circus freaks and sideshows always spell 'creepy,' and here's yet another example of why hanging out at the carnival is never a good idea.
