This week is light on big names films, but does feature some solid choices led by Exorcismus – which is the latest and best of the possession movies released of late. Tokyo Shock is back with another ridiculous movie with Psycho Gothic Lolita. It seems there is a never-ending supply of cheap batsh*t crazy flicks from our friends in Japan – which I consider a good thing. And `80s Italian horror lovers can watch some kick ass looking zombies by picking up Burial Ground, now out on Blu-ray. Have a great week everyone!

Instead, they find themselves being pursued by the undead, the result of a careless scientist’s morbid experiments.

MICAH SAYS: Early `80s zombie flick with excellent Italian gore and makeup. It’s basically a rip off of Fulci (which makes this a rip off of a rip off), but I love this kind of stuff. Not necessarily to buy, but this one would be in my instant queue in a heartbeat.
DEVIL’S GROVE – Elite
