March 2 – 9, 2010
BITCH SLAP: Fox
A modern throwback to the “B” movie exploitation films of the 50’s-70’s, mixing beautiful women, fast cars, big guns, nasty tongues, outrageous action, and jaw-dropping eye candy. The movie follows three bad girls, a down-and-out stripper, a drug running killer, and a corporate power broker as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort massive booty from an underworld kingpin.
CHOOSING DARKNESS: Midnight Releasing
Vincent Vinnie Carpone has finally had enough. Finally had enough of his life as a mafia hit man, and enough of his over-jealous girlfriend, Ciarra. Maybe it s time for a change. After a confusing and failed hit on a rival gang, Vinnie approaches the mob boss, Dominic attempting to leave his current profession. With fellow hitmen being sent after him, Vinnie is reminded that no one leaves the family. A return home that evening reveals that the rival gang is actually vampires that have transformed Ciarra into a creature of the undead, and this group is now out to send Vinnie a message. Can the help of his former love, Faith, and two friends from his past, aid Vinnie in besetting revenge on those that threaten his very existence?
DEMONIC TOYS 2: Full Moon
While on a trip to help a eccentric collector of bizarre oddities, young David and his girlfriend Caitlin are forced to fight for their lives when they find themselves trapped in an ancient Roman castle as the Demonic Toys are brought pack to life by a mysterious ancient puppet who sets them on a course for murder. Only the fulfillment of an ancient evil curse can save them. But will anyone be alive to be saved in the end?
EDGAR ALLAN POE’S THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM: E1
Seven students arrive at a secluded mansion to participate in a scientific experiment conducted by JB Divay, a bizarre hypnotist with a dark past. At first the group dismisses JB’s eccentricities… until the students start disappearing.
GOD’S LEFT HAND, DEVIL’S RIGHT HAND: Tokyo Shock
A boy with the supernatural ability to dream about and predict the evil intentions of men sees one particular individual reading a picture book to his bedridden daughter. The dream would have been nothing out of the ordinary except for the fact that the self-made book was about barbarously murdered girls. The nightmare not only shocks the youngster awake, but it also causes blood to pour from his neck. Slowly dying, it is up to his sister to track down the man from her brother’s dream and solve the mystery.
HAUNTED ECHOES: A GHOST STORY: E1
Devastated by their daughter’s murder, a couple tries to overcome their grief by restoring an old house. But soon they are confronted with the ghost of a young girl who suffered an imaginable death.
NINE DEAD: Image
With hoods over their heads, nine handcuffed strangers are about to learn their kidnapper’s game. They must work together to answer one question: Why have they been targeted? One of them will die every 10 minutes unless they can strip away each other’s secrets to solve this dangerous, twisted puzzle that could leave NINE DEAD.
REGOREGITATED SACRAFICE: Breaking Glass
Guided by identical twin demon spirits, The Black Angels of Hell, we see the diabolical depiction of the alternate-parallel dimension of the simultaneous suicide deaths of Kurt Cobain and bulimic porn star Angela Aberdeen, as seen through the mental activity of Angela’s journey toward brain death as a result of her self-inflicted death by drowning.
PRISON GIRLS COLLECTION (3-Disc Set): Shriek Show
SHADOW – An executed and resurrected serial killer invades a women’s prison in search of the girl known only as Solitaire. Solitaire senses her impending doom and prepares to single-handedly take on Shadow and his army of zombies in a supernatural martial arts showdown! Shadow: Dead Riot is a unique stylistic fusion of Asian-style action, zombie horror and women’s prison drama.
VIOLENCE IN A WOMEN’S PRISON -Planning to expose the corrupt practices of a women’s prison, Emmanuelle goes undercover as an inmate. She is shocked by the guards’ brutal treatment of the inmates, but she never gets a chance to report these horrors. When her actual identity is revealed, she finds herself on the receiving end of even worse tortures.
WOMEN IN FURY – Covering for her brother, who killed a Brazilian drug lord, Angela Duvall is sent to a women’s prison. Trapped behind bars, Angela’s beauty excites the passions in her fellow prisoners and the guards alike. Unfortunately, she also catches the eye of a group of inmates who work for the man her brother murdered. In order to live long enough for her brother’s confession to arrive; she must escape with her fellow prisoners into the dark Brazilian jungle!
TREMORS: THE COMPLETE SERIES: Universal
Life in Perfection, Nevada, isn’t so perfect since the small town developed a very big problem with man-eating, morphing monsters. Luckily, the residents are up to the challenge in every earthshaking, action-packed episode of Tremors included in this 3-disc set. Inspired by the movies that have become beloved cult classics, this fun, thrilling TV series reveals more of the down ’n’ dirty battles as the locals attempt to coexist with the Graboids, Shriekers and Ass Blasters now on the “protected species” list, including a particularly large Graboid nicknamed “El Blanco.” Add to the craziness a combination of secret labs, the gene-blending “Mixmaster” and the occasional fanatical tourist, and there’s never a dull moment in Perfection.
THE WRAITH: Lionsgate (TEX’S PICK OF THE WEEK)
An evil force took his life. Now an unearthly power has brought him back. He has a destiny to fulfill, and a woman’s love to reclaim. And he’s determined to wage a vendetta against the young punks who put him in this situation to start with.
TEX SAYS: Check out this special edition re-release for the classic 80’s ghost rider film! Much better than that shitty public domain version that Platinum put out a few years back in the set with Prom Night, The Gate and Trick or Treat. With The Gate special edition out too (a coupla months ago) maybe Lionsgate will man-up and give the other 2 films some special edition love too.
