This President's Day week has a little something for everybody, as not only do we have Jim Carrey in theaters with a horror flick no less, we also have a freaky looking foreign film in limited release as well. And when it comes to DVD, some STD love with the fun looking BLOODY MARY, the British gore-fest WILDERNESS, and them zany Germans in the zomcom NIGHT OF THE LIVING DORKS. If this week doesn't lift you out of the crappy-weather blues, I don't know what will!
