THE THIRST - May 15th

Billed as being a cross between the drug culture fright fest REQUIEM FOR A DREAM and the vampire western NEAR DARK, this flick certainly aims to please, and from what our man The Arrow says, its a shameless balls to the wall, titties and gore party! Which is really all I needed to know about this flick- Im so in! Why they didnt use Arrows quote for the cover art is beyond me, as thats the kind of tagline that will get people blind-buying, and renting the damn thing off the shelf. Take note distributors: words like gore and titties are sure to attract your target audience. Use em!

  • Anamorphic 1.78:1 Widescreen
  • Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio
  • Audio commentary by Altman and composer Joe Kraemer
  • Making-of featurette

    GRAVEYARD ALIVE - May 8th

    Think about what would happen if you cross NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD with DEBBIE DOES DALLAS. Youd get something like this, as its about this nurse who falls in love with her patient which just so happens to be a zombie. Will there be nasty zombie sex ala DEAD ALIVE? Only if youre lucky

    The Goods:

  • Widescreen
  • Commentary by Elza Kephart
  • Interviews
  • The Trailer

    BLACK KISS - May 15th

    Straight outta Tokyo, this shocker is aiming to shock the shite outta people.

Perfect for rounding out anyones J-Horror collection.

    PHANTASM - April 10th

    The original masterpiece is finally given the DVD special features treatment, which is much like the treatment those in the UK saw a while back. First time to Region 1 audiences, and I think I just herd the collaborative cheer from horror fans around the world (er, North America at least). Anchor Bay, how are you so cool? Once again the Bay sends the message that they're our friends, so why not show em' some love? They deserve it for this one! Wow, this is almost as cool as Part 3 finally coming to DVD. Oh wait.

    PHANTASM III - April 10th

    For the first time on DVD anywhere, Part 3 is finally hitting the DVD market the same day Part 1 hits with a Special Edition vengeance. But wait, wheres PHANTASM II? Why release one and three without releasing two? What the hell is going on here? Seriously, why release this piece of crap and with hold the classic that is Part 2? And why am I asking a bunch of questions that no one can answer? Am I losing my mind? Is the Bay losing their minds? I don't know!

    Honorable Mentions:


    MOH: FAMILY April 17th Because its from director John Landis and stars your pal and mine, George call me Norm again and Ill kill you Wendt!

    MOH: RIGHT TO DIE May 15th Because it deals with the everlasting question that has haunted man since the beginning: if youre wifes in a coma, then its not cheating right?

    DEAD AND DEADER April 10th Because its pretty much Superman vs. some zombies, as Dean Cain further sinks into the abyss of straight to video genre trash.
