Well here we are at the last set of DVD releases for 2009. From the onslaught of horror and thriller titles you'd think it was the last Tuesday in October, not December - but I'm not complaining as a bunch of them are on my to see list!
New Horror & Thrillers Titles!
First up for DVD releases is the little indie movie of 2009 that could: Paranormal Activity - we demanded, we went, we shrieked and we loved it. It was definitely one of the creepiest movies of the year. Also up this week is Carriers starring Chris Pine (Jim Kirk in this years Star Trek) and Piper Perabo, this horror flick has that 'infection' vibe all over it and I'm quite saddened and surprized that it never hit regular theatres here in the T-dot, especially because I remember seeing a preview or two for it. Wait a moment, another movie with another Kirk in it? Yep - A Perfect Getaway starring Chris Hemsworth (George Kirk in Star Trek) along with Milla Jovovich, Timothy Olyphant, Steve Zahn, Kiele Sanchez and Marley Shelton in this thriller from director David Twohy (Pitch Black). But the boys don't get all the fun, Jennifer's Body directed by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight) and starring Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried hits DVD today. Last up for horror is Lesbian Vampire Killers, which I found much less interesting when found out the vampires were lesbians and being hunted. Why couldn't the hunters be lesbians kicking vampire butt? Also, it appears that the US DVD title is simply Vampire Killers and both version the cover art looks very Zombieland-esque.
I've Heard of That!
Non-horror (depending on how you look at it) titles this week include Michael Moore's latest documentary Capitalism, A Love Story along with Bubbles & the boys getting into trouble in Trailer Park Boys 2: Countdown to Liquor Day aka Trailer Park Boys 2.
These really are wildcards this week, so much so that Princess of Mars is listed on IMDb as still 'in production'. Other than that we can gather it stars Traci Lords, Antonio Sabato Jr. and is Sci Fi (hence the 'Mars'). We also have Death Warrior which centres on a deadly game played by 5 MMA fighters.
I can't resist but spread the Glee love with the release of "Glee Season 1, Volume 1: Road to Sectionals". Although I'm no fan of .5 releases on DVD but I can see the excitement especially considering we aren't going to have any new episodes until April 13, 2010.
