"Gosford Park" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Academy)
TEA AT FOUR. DINNER AT EIGHT. MURDER AT MIDNIGHT.
In 2001, Robert Altman (MASH, The Long Goodbye) took the unexpected step into Agatha Christie territory with Gosford Park, a murder-mystery whodunit set in an English country house starring a host of British acting greats and with an Oscar-winning screenplay by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. It would become a huge success with audiences and critics alike. Set in 1932, the action unfolds during a weekend shooting party hosted by Sir William McArdle (Alan Bates), and his wife Lady Sylvia (Kristin Scott Thomas) at his estate, Gosford Park. Among the guests are friends, relatives, the actor and composer Ivor Novello (Jeremy Northam), and an American film producer (Bob Balaban). When Sir William is found murdered in the library, everyone - and their servants - becomes a suspect. Also starring Charles Dance, Michael Gambon, Richard E. Grant, Helen Mirren, Clive Owen, Maggie Smith, Emily Watson and many more, Altman produced another masterpiece deserving to be ranked alongside Nashville and Short Cuts as one his finest forays into ensemble drama.

"Christmas Blood" DVD Review (Artsploitation Films)
The holiday season proves to be a bloody one for one town as a Santa killer strikes every Christmas Eve.
Horror's Santa-slasher sub-genre mixes with Scandinavian Noir in this bloody Xmas tale. Christmas is a time of peace, love and family. But not for Norway as a psychopath dressed in a Santa Claus suit has been terrorizing them for the past 13 years. For as soon as the caroling starts, this demented Kris Kringle dispenses bloody ax blows regardless of whether you've been bad or good. As the holiday approaches on one snow-covered town filled with revelers, a pair of detectives work against time to find and arrest this bearded serial killer. Will they manage to stop this demented St. Nick before he kills again? Director Reinert Kiil (The House, Whore) delivers a dark, disturbing and bloody holiday thriller.

"Pet Shop" Blu-Ray Review (Full Moon Entertainment)
Take home a pet...from another universe!
From father and son producers Albert and Charles Band comes this completely crazy and totally twisted Moonbeam Entertainment family film classic, available now for the first time on any format since its VHS debut in 1994! Pet Shop tells the wacky, way-out tale of a pair of alien fiends disguised as over-the-top cowboys who touch down in the Arizona desert town of Cactus Flats and immediately buy a run down pet store. Their mission? To lure local children with promises of cuddly companions...and then eat them for dinner! 14 year-old Dena (Leigh Ann Orsi) - whose family has also recently hit town as part of a witness protection program initiative - gets wise to the otherworldly weirdos schemes and with the help of some adorable alien critters and three local kids, sets out to stop the spaced out, tyke-munching retailers for good. Co-starring the great Terry Kiser (Three's Company, Weekend at Bernie's) and featuring charming animatronic puppet effects by Mark Rappaport (Army of Darkness, I Am Legend), Pet Shop is a deeply odd and wildly hilarious fantasy favorite for kids of every age, presented here for the first time on Blu-ray in a High Definition transfer culled from the original 35mm negative. Get ready for some seriously strange out-of-this world laughter, as only Full Moon and Moonbeam can provide!

Pick a Movie "Moebius" Blu-Ray Review (Ram Releasing)
The husband. The wife. Their son. The atmosphere at home is ice cold - the husband distracted by an affair with a young woman, the wife sick of her husband's debauchery, and the teenage son indifferent to them both. Overwhelmed with hatred, the wife attempts to remove from the husband the organ driving his desires; thwarted, she instead takes out the violent act on the son and then disappears into the night. At the hospital, the husband is distraught with guilt, severing his own manhood in solidarity and setting out to recover his son's happiness, sacrificed to his parents' conflict. Disfigured in such a radical way, the son slowly deviates from normal life, even falling for the husband's young mistress as the husband discovers strange and severe ways to help his son find pleasure again. With both husband and son damaged and living in grief, the wife returns as the family heads towards destruction even more horrific than before.
