This week doesn’t bring much in the way of releases outside of the Dennis Quaid vehicle, Beneath the Darkness, which pretty much no one liked. The Israeli horror flick, Rabies, looks to be the best film out (though I haven’t seen it) of the bunch. It’s garnered mostly positive reviews since its North American premier at Tribeca last year.
Are you picking up anything this week? I’m skipping purchases this week and trying to watch all the Starz movies in my Netflix Instant queue before they expire on March 1st. Horror In Your House

Legendary sex symbol Carroll Baker (Baby Doll, The Wathcer In The Woods) stars as a mysterious sorceress with an undying hunger for sensual ecstasy and unspeakable torture. But when she casts a spell over a beautiful young fashion photographer (the gorgeous Isabelle De Funes), Milan’s most luscious models are sucked into a nightmare world of lesbian seduction and shocking sadism. Are these carnal crimes the result of one woman’s forbidden fantasies or is this the depraved curse of the devil witch known as Baba Yaga?

MICAH SAYS: A little trivia: Israeli’s first horror film. It’s billed as a Slasher/Comedy. And it’s my default PICK OF THE WEEK.
