Once again, there are only a handful of releases worthy of QE endorsement this week, but the one's we do want, we really want. Like Sean Meredith's Dante's Inferno for instance, where "apocalyptic graphic novel artwork and eerie Victorian toy theater converge" to give birth to biting satire. Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro's long overdue Delicatessen: Special Edition is also out today as well. And how could we forget Anchor Bay's Phantasm IV: Oblivion disc? And what's this? A swanky new director's cut of Christophe Gans's The Brotherhood of the Wolf?! I haven't seen BOTW in years, but after catching Silent Hill on Showcase a couple nights back (what a great flick) I'm interested in revisiting it for the lush visuals alone. You know the drill. Trailers and links after the break.

Dante's Inferno
Purchase from Amazon


A darkly comedic travelogue of the underworld - set against an all-too-familiar urban backdrop of used car lots, gated communities, strip malls, and the U.S. Capitol. And populated with a contemporary cast of reprobates, including famous - and infamous - politicians, presidents, popes, pimps. And the Prince of Darkness himself.

In a post-apocalyptic world, the residents of an apartment above the butcher shop receive an occasional delicacy of meat, something that is in low supply. A young man new in town falls in love with the butcher's daughter, which causes conflicts in her family, who need the young man for other business-related purposes.
