Tak Sakaguchi stars as Jubeh Yakyu, a seventeen-year-old juvenile delinquent sent to reform school after killing over 50 people within a week. To escape the school, Jubeh agrees to join the facility's baseball team in a battle to the death against the sexy 'psycho butcher girls' of St. Black Dahlia High School. This riotous, over-the-top epic of excess is the movie for the psycho sports fan in everybody and more fun than a prison cavity search!
DVD Review BASKET CASE 2
This second installment of the adventures of everyone's favorite surgically separated conjoined twins takes the weirdness level up a few notches, to say the least.
DVD Review BASKET CASE 3
The further adventures of Duane and his malformed, formerly conjoined twin brother Belial stick in my memory as a case of director Frank Henenlotter going to the well one too many times. That opinion could change, given that it's been at least 15 years since I've seen this second sequel, but I have a bad feeling it won't.
A clip from the new special, Jeff Dunham: Minding the Monsters, filmed at Savannah, GA's Lucas Theater in May. Minding the Monsters finds Dunham's comedic troupe in sidesplitting situations that will both trick and treat viewers to a Halloween entertainment extravaganza.
DVD Review SQUIDBILLIES: VOLUME FIVE
I'm a huge fan of a handful of Adult Swim shows, but this is one I've yet to see even a single episode of. What better excuse to finally do so than via Warner's fifth DVD collection.
DVD Review ANATOMY OF A MURDER
Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder is as entertaining as it is thoughtful about the limits of the law in grasping human nature. It feels fresh and mature even fifty years later, and stands as one of the best courtroom dramas in film history.
Having met at University, American born Ellie (MANDY MOORE) and her husband Alvin (MARTIN FREEMAN) are several years into their marriage. The heady sparks of lust and fun have sadly faded and they're left with the day to day normality of their everyday life. Advised by best friends Peter (JONATHAN SILVERMAN) and Janet (MELISSA GEORGE), who are having their own marital problems, Ellie and Alvin are desperate to 'spice things up'.
DVD Review ASTRON-6 COLLECTION
I'll admit to never having heard of Astron-6 before receiving this new DVD collection, but, with Troma responsible for this release, I'm sure we're all in for plenty of fun, insane depravity.
DVD Review HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT'S INFERNO (Blu-ray)
Given that this film began shooting almost 50 years ago is intriguing enough. Flicker Alley has upped the ante by including a second disc of supplementary material that allows us to study this compelling project long after the film itself is over.
DVD Review SHOCK CORRIDOR
Samuel Fuller has no use for understatement or subtlety, especially when he encamps to the insane asylum.
DVD Review BLACK NARCISSUS (BLU-RAY)
Conflicts of many kinds are present in Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's Black Narcissus, set against the beauty and danger of the Himalayas. These include the shock of Anglo-Catholic nuns set in the midst of the mountains among natives who speak no English, the struggle between flesh and the spirit, between medicine and superstition, between vows and longing for a different life, and between the monied classes and the impoverished. The new Blu-ray Disc from The Criterion Collection brings a splendid film-like appearance to the ravishing visuals.

DVD Review THE UNINVITED (BLU-RAY)
Rehashes of Asian horror movies are becoming commonplace, but given the right treatment, they can be effective. Case in point: this American reworking of the Korean picture A Tale of Two Sisters, which manages to keep a lot of the creepy atmosphere of the original while successfully dumbing it down for us Yanks. A brisk pace and a brief running time help keep it from wearing out its welcome.
