Tons of great flicks hitting store shelves this week, so pay attention gang!

First up we've got Black Swan (review/thoughts) which is an extremely well crafted movie that plays with archetype to discuss basic human conflicts and loss of innocence. Natalie Portman won the Oscar for Best Actress and it's well deserved. Aaronofsky films the movie in such an aggressive way that you can't help but be floored by what you're watching, even if after it's over you decide you don't buy it all. If you haven't seen it, it's one to check out.

Also out this week is The Resident, which is Hammer Films' second release since the Let Me In remake (review). The Resident is about a young doctor who suspects she may not be alone in her new Brooklyn loft, she learns that her landlord has formed a frightening obsession with her. It stars Hilary Swank and Christopher Lee.

Also on the horror front we've got two After Dark Originals hitting this week (sorry, not Re-kill). The first is HUSK which looks to be an interesting foray into the lost evil scarecrow sub-genre and Prowl which is about a group of teens who get trapped in a warehouse where creatures are learning to hunt.. or something.

For you retro slaves out there, we've got a TON of re-issues this week. First we've got the post-apocalyptic classic Soylent Green hitting Blu-ray for the first time ever. Blue Underground are releasing Dario Argento's Inferno on Bluray. This is a classic, but I REALLY hope Suspiria is on the way... and what's this? Teen Wolf on Bluray? Criterion releasing Mike Leigh's Topsy-Turvy? Mel Gibson's Aussie war flick Attack Force Z out on Blu!

Trailers after the break!!!!!!

What? The Soylent Green Blu-ray is in the correct aspect ratio. What makes you think it's not? Check out the screenshots at the blu-ray.com or dvdbeaver.com reviews for confirmation.

Specs on Amazon are wrong. Obviously not a reliable source.
