Little Deaths - is a horror comp composed of three disturbingly sensual and terrifying short narratives, unified by the twin themes of sex and death. One of our favourite directors, Simon Rumley wrote one of the segments.


Fright Night - A modern reimagining of the 80s there's-a-vampire-living-next-door flick that doesn't suck. It's quick-witted, funny and didn't change that freaky vampire make-up we all remember so fondly.


Expendables: Extended Director's Cut - Fans of The Expendables probably already bought the flick on Blu, but if you never got around to it you may want to check out this release that adds 11 minutes and a new feature length documentary called "Inferno."


Defcon 4/Hell Comes to Frogtown - Sorry PA fans, this isn't a Blu-ray release of either titles, but rather a two-fer coming from Image Ent. 80s buffs that haven't see either titles, take note. This is weird and awesome cult PA.


Astron-6 Collection - If you aren't familiar with Astron-6 it's time to hit the googleizer and do your homework. They recently made Father's Day for Troma and have partnered on this collection which compiles all their short films. Be sure to enter our contest to win a copy.


Rise of the Planet of the Apes - Didn't see it. Don't care to even though regular folk say it's well done. What do I care about this story? And honestly, who cares if Andy Serkis wins an Academy award for his mo-cap work? He knows he's the man without a golden statue.


Heavenly Creatures - Before Peter Jackson was famous with the geek squad he was famous in the indie scene for this trip into the troubled lives of two girls who *spoiler alert* kill they mum. It's a great film with a great performance from a young Kate Winslet.


Velvet Goldmine - Another indie darling from the 90s comes to Blu-ray in Velvet Goldmine, a glam-rock trip through the 70s that uses a thinly veiled David Bowie. Stars Christian Bale, Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers.


Branded to Kill - This 60s Yakuza flick from Seijun Suzuki is a modded out trip that you gotta see. It doesn't do it as much as the violent and technicolor Youth of the Beast, but it's pretty great.

Little Deaths was kind of lame. Looking forward to seeing what Fright Night has to offer. Rise of the Planet of the Apes, it was ok, the monkeys I thought looked a bit fake. Loved Velvet Goldmine and Heavenly Creatures. Oh and if I recall DefCon4 was good in its day. LOL!
