ONE VOICE (not Ellsworth Monkton Toohey): Arrow, finishing the year strongly, keep producing amazing Blu-ray packages - they just seem to keep getting better and better. Their Vincent Price - Six Gothic Tales Boxset is stacked with incredible extras and the strongest 1080P transfers we've yet seen. If you are keen - don't wait - this incredible package also contains a 200-page book as a limited edition exclusive (2,000 copies). As anticipated Arrow's Blu-ray of Robert Siodmak's The Killers bested the existing Carlotta with an equivalent a/v but substantially more, and better, supplements. And finishing Arrow reviews of this week - we have Mario Bava's The Girl Who Knew Too Much on Blu-ray - a wonderful mystery-thriller filled with the director's deft touches. Sony's custom package of Frank Capra's Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is a beautiful Blu-ray keepsake of a masterpiece film. Criterion's new Blu-ray of Terry Giliam's Time Bandits is predictably an excellent release - strongly recommended! I thoroughly enjoyed Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani's The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears Blu-ray from Strand Releasing. It's rich, Giallo-homage, eye-candy - sweet. The 1945 film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's Faustian tale, The Picture of Dorian Gray is out on Blu-ray - an underrated film experience. Spillane himself player Mike Hammer in the above-average The Girl Hunters involving another hard-boiled mystery with the legendary gumshoe - now on Blu-ray. Trancers is a lot of low budget sci-fi fun with a young Helen Hunt - the Blu-ray is worth a spin to fans of this sub-genre. Admittedly the Blu-ray of Yoji Yamada's brilliant Twilight Samurai has a contrast issue - lets hope this is resolved favorably for the fans of the impressive film. Unfortunately, VCI's Blu-ray of, salaciously titled, What the Peeper Saw is less than stellar with an incredibly weak source, a MPEG-2 encode and it may also not be 'uncut'. What a shame. On DVD, I was unhappy with the Universal 'Vault Series' interlaced SD transfers with visible chroma, but I did like some of the films, notably Supernatural (1933) with Carole Lombard, the horror-mystery Secret of the Blue Room and, in the similar genre, Mystery of Edwin Drood. Good films treated poorly on digital. Eric covered the highly regarded the Georgian drama In Bloom, a documentary on erotic filmmaker Joe Sarno entitled A Life in Dirty Pictures, the French film Apaches, the crime-thriller To Kill a Man and lastly The Killjoy Collection... Have a great day (week) of savings!


The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears BD - Belgian directors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani follow up Amer with another extended use of Italian horror-thriller style to deliver an intense character study… instead of an archetypal giallo heroine, the focus is on Dan Kristensen (Klaus Tange), a man caught in an Argento-like trap in a beautiful yet sinister apartment building in which murders, shaggy-dog stories, disappearances, childhood memories and red herrings wind around him. Using a collage soundtrack, gorgeous décor, costume and cinematography, this is a world full of philosophical and criminal mysteries. Blu-ray Release date: December 9th, 2014

Vincent Price - Six Gothic Tales BD - In The Fall of the House of Usher, a young man learns of a family curse that threatens his happiness with his bride-to-be. In The Pit and the Pendulum, a brother investigates the untimely death of sister, played by Barbara Steele. Tales of Terror adapts three Poe classics, Morella, The Black Cat and The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, each starring a horror icon. The Raven is a comic take on the famous poem concerning three rival magicians. In The Haunted Palace, a newcomer in a New England town is suspected of being a warlock. And in The Tomb of Ligeia, filmed in Norfolk and at Stonehenge, a widower s upcoming marriage plans are thwarted by his dead first wife. The six films boast a remarkable cast list: not just Price and Steele, but also Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, Lon Chaney Jr, Basil and a very young Jack Nicholson. Adapted for the screen by Richard Matheson and Robert Towne, these Six Gothic Tales now rank as classic examples of sixties horror cinema. Blu-ray Release Date: December 8th, 2014

What the Peeper Saw BD - In this psychological thriller touching upon obsession, a successful author's (Hardy Kruger) new wife (Britt Ekland) begins to suspect her 12-year old stepson (Mark Lester) may have have had a hand in murdering his mother whom mysteriously died while bathing. What results is a sexual cat-and-mouse game that escalates the wife's paranoia to dangerous levels. Blu-ray Release date: November, 2014

Trancers BD - Jack Deth - a bounty hunter in the bleak Los Angeles of the future. He's become obsessed with chasing Whistler - an evil criminal who uses powerful hypnotic powers to convert people into zombie like creatures known as trancers. Whistler has managed to escape through time travel and is loose in 1980s L.A. but Deth is on his trail. Blu-ray Release date: November 24th, 2014

The Killers BD - It opens with the killers of the Hemingway story (Charles McGraw and William Conrad) entering the diner in search of the Swede (Lancaster). They have a murder contract to fulfill, they learn that he will soon be coming in for dinner. Nick Adams (Phil Brown) overhears the killer's intent and runs to a boarding house to warn the Swede. He listens, but remains indifferently on his bed, explaining simply "I did something wrong... once". With that he quietly awaits his fate. The Hemingway story ends about there, but this is only the beginning of the film. Edmond O'Brien is Jim Reardon, an energetic insurance investigator whose company has to pay off on the Swede's death. By interviewing the Swede's associates, Rearden begins the laborious process of reconstructing the dead man's turbulent life, a process we see through a series of extended flashbacks. Arrow Blu-ray Release date: December 8th, 2014

Time Bandits BD - Plunging headfirst into history, director Terry Gilliam fearlessly brings the logic of children's fairy tales to bear as he navigates through myth and legend in a bizarre, ingenious retelling of THE WIZARD OF OZ. A boy and six good-natured little persons careen through time-twisting interactions with Napoleon, Robin Hood, and Agamemnon, among others, with a map the little people stole from their employer, the Supreme Being. But their intention is to rob their way through the past, which does not make their boss happy. Meanwhile, Evil is after the map in order to become the Supreme Being himself. The result is an extraordinarily visual extravaganza that overflows with Gilliam's ecstatic vision. The film is shot from a child's viewpoint, both through the character of Kevin and the placement of the camera. One of the morals of this thoroughly enjoyable, charming fantasy is that heroes aren't always all they're cracked up to be. Blu-ray Release Date: December 9th, 2014

The Girl Hunters BD - Private Eye, Mike Hammer's sexy secretary Velda is missing... and Mike's hot on her trail. Mickey Spillane himself, the best-selling author of The Girl Hunters, turns in a "tremendous" performance (Time magazine) in the leading role. Count on some pulse-pounding action when Hammer tangles with a ruthless band of communist spies determined to see him dead. But even more dangerous might be the seductive, bikini-clad widow (Shirley Eaton, Goldfinger) who's caught Hammer's eye. Spillane's Mike Hammer murder mysteries have sold in the millions across the world. And The Girl Hunters is vintage Spillane - fast and furious. Blu-ray Release date: October 21st, 2014

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington BD - Stewart's young Wisconsin senator exposing corruption and upholding true American values in a Senate House riddled with graft is quintessential Capra - popular wish-fulfilment served up with such fast-talking comic panache that you don't have time to question its cornball idealism. Scriptwriter Sidney Buchman's crackling dialogue is also lent sharp-tongued conviction by Rains, as the slimy senior senator, Jean Arthur as the hard-boiled dame finally won over by Stewart's honesty, and Harry Carey as the Vice President. Blu-ray Release date: December 2nd, 2014

The Picture of Dorian Gray BD - Generally underrated version of Oscar Wilde's Faustian tale about a young Victorian gentleman who sells his soul to retain his youth, directed with loving care by the equally underrated Lewin (best known, perhaps, for Pandora and the Flying Dutchman). Hatfield - cool, beautiful, and effortlessly suggesting the corruptibility of Dorian's dark soul - is excellent, though even he is overshadowed by the cynical, epigrammatic brilliance of Sanders as Lord Henry. With elegant fin de siècle sets superbly shot by Harry Stradling, and the ironic Wildean wit understated rather than overplayed, it's that rare thing: a Hollywoodian literary adaptation that both stays faithful and does justice to its source. Blu-ray Release Date: November 11th, 2014

Twilight Samurai BD - A nominee for the Best Foreign Film Oscar® and winner of 12 Japanese Academy Awards, The Twilight Samurai (2002) is a contemplative character study of Seibei (Hiroyuki Sanada), a traditional samurai reduced — in a rapidly modernizing Japan — to working as an accountant. A widower, Seibei has to care for his senile mother and his two young daughters; his financial problems are so severe that he finally, humiliatingly, must pawn his sword. And then, his clan comes to him with one last job. Directed by veteran Yôji Yamada, best known for helming Japan’s beloved “Tora-san” films. Blu-ray Release Date: November, 2014

The Girl Who Knew Too Much BD - There's a beautiful shot in this movie of the light shining through two bullet holes in a door; it is a great example of where some of the appeal lies in Mario Bava movies in its exemplary use of light and dark. THE EVIL EYE is not a good title in itself; the alternate title, THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, is both a better description and makes manifest a certain Hitchcockian feel to this movie. Though the tale itself is quite suspenseful, particularly in a sequence where the heroine follows a voice in an old building, there is a surprising amount of humor in this movie; there's even schtick involving John Saxon's broken thumb at several points. I haven't really seen enough giallo at this point to say whether this is where the whole genre began, but I've heard it referred to as such, so I'll leave it to others to decide. At any rate, this movie is a great deal of fun and well worth catching. Blu-ray Release Date: November 17th, 2014

A Life in Dirty Pictures - A Life in Dirty Movies is a love story about legendary sexploitation director Joe Sarno, the Ingmar Bergman of 42nd Street, and his loyal wife and collaborator Peggy. The film follows the Sarnos for a year, as 88 year old Joe struggles to get what may be his last film project off the ground. The film s intimate perspective reveals a filmmaker s golden years and the search for significance once again. Intercut is a look back to the evolution of softcore films into hardcore porn that all but put Sarno out of business. A Life in Dirty Movies is a clever and sincere portrait of a unique couple who follow their passion in life onscreen and off. DVD Release Date: November 25th, 2014

To Kill a Man - Hardworking family man Jorge is just barely making ends meet. When he gets mugged by Kalule, a neighborhood delinquent, his son decides to confront Kalule, only to get himself shot in the process. Sentenced to a scant 2 years in prison for the offense, Kalule, released and now intent on revenge, goes on the warpath, terrorizing Jorges family. With his wife, son and daughter at the mercy of a thug, Jorge has no choice but to take justice into his own hands, and live with the emotional and psychological consequences. DVD Release Date: December 2nd, 2014

Apaches - While thousands of tourists invade the beaches and clubs of the picturesque island of Corsica, five local teenagers spend their days aimlessly hanging out in the streets. One summer night, one invites the others to a vacant luxury villa he knows, where they spend the night swimming, drinking and hooking up. When they leave, they steal several valuables from the home, including two prize rifles. Upon returning from Paris to discover the theft and vandalism, the homeowner turns to a local crime boss for help, quickly igniting a chain reaction of violence and revenge the teens had never anticipated. DVD Release Date: December 2nd, 2014

Secret of the Blue Room - A deadly secret from the past returns to haunt a young woman and her loved ones in Secret of the Blue Room. Irene von Helldorf’s twenty-first birthday celebration is eclipsed when her father shares the dark details of his estate’s guest room: twenty years earlier, three people were killed there and their murders remain unsolved. Hoping to prove their own bravery and win Irene’s love, each of her three suitors agrees to spend a night in the room… and a new string of deadly mysteries is set into motion. DVD Release Date: October 16th, 2014

Supernatural (1933) - This atmospheric suspense film from the makers of White Zombie marked an unusual turn for glamorous Carole Lombard as heiress Roma Courtenay, who is approached by phony psychic Paul Bavian (Alan Dinehart), who claims to bear an important message from her recently deceased brother. After attending a bogus séance, Roma suddenly becomes possessed by the malevolent spirit of executed triple-murderess Ruth Rogen (Vivienne Osborne), whose unfinished business includes killing Bavian, her one-time lover. Fearing that Roma is actually under the charlatan's control, her fiancé (Randolph Crane Scott) sets out to rescue her -- and eventually discovers that the supernatural influence is quite real. Though too subdued to generate real suspense, this atmospheric film benefits from the visual style of director Victor Halperin. DVD Release Date: October 16th, 2014

Mystery of Edwin Drood - The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a haunting film adaptation based on the unfinished novel by Charles Dickens. An opium-addicted choirmaster, John Jasper (Claude Rains), becomes obsessed with a young student named Rosa Bud (Heather Angel). His nephew, Edwin Drood (David Manners), also holds a torch for the girl and asks her to marry him. Circumstances in their small Victorian town grow more perplexing when Drood disappears and the sordid details of Jasper’s secret life come to light. Featuring beautiful sets, lavish costumes and stunning cinematography, this gripping tale remains as mysterious as ever. DVD Release Date: October 16th, 2014

In Bloom - Early 90s, in Tbilisi, the capital of the newly independent Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The country is immersed in violence--there's a war on the Black Sea coast in Abkhazia, and vigilante justice plagues society. But for Eka and Natia, fourteen-year-old inseparable friends, life just unfolds in the street, at school, with friends or Eka's elder sister. Although they are already dealing with men's dominance, early marriage and disillusioned love, for these two girls in bloom, life just goes on. DVD Release Date: November 18th, 2014

The Killjoy Collection - 88 Film's two-disc THE KILLJOY COLLECTION comprises the four direct-to-video features on the wise-cracking demon of vengeance, eons old but currently taking the form of a clown due to man's irrational fear of them. His vengeance always comes at a terrible price since he needs the souls of his victims to make himself stronger, and the one who summons him provides the most nourishment.
