"Why Don't You Just Die?" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
Shades of early Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Sam Raimi abound in this violent, stylish and riotously entertaining slice of family life, Moscow style, described as "a splatterpunk action comedy drenched in gleefully dark Russian humor" (The Hollywood Reporter) and "an amazing first feature from a filmmaker to watch" (Screen Anarchy). Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend's parents' apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey's attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don't quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable - not to mention ruthless - opponent than he anticipated... and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die. Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour. Featuring a soundtrack that veers between Ennio Morricone-esque western riffs and toe-tappingly catchy pop numbers, Why Don't You Just Die! delivers laughs, shocking twists and copious quantities of blood and gore, and establishes Sokolov as one of cinema's brightest rising stars.

"White Fire" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
Robert Ginty (The Exterminator) and Belinda Mayne (Krull) play Bo and Inga, brother and sister jewel thieves who target the legendary 'White Fire' diamond -- a priceless rock so hot it actually burns those who try to lay their hands on it! When tragedy strikes, Bo undertakes an outrageous plan involving plastic surgery and explosives to infiltrate the mine where the diamond awaits. Bo's plan hits an unexpected snag with the arrival of smooth-talking badass Noah Barclay, played by Fred Williamson (From Dusk 'Til Dawn). Noah's hunting for a missing prostitute -- and he thinks Bo and Inga hold the key to her disappearance! Erotic filmmaker Jean-Marie Pallardy (Erotic Diary of a Lumberjack) brings his kinky touch to high octane action in this infamous exploitation epic, complete with chainsaw mayhem, awkward brotherly love, and a very '80s theme song by the band Limelight!

"Session 9" Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory) Summer TPUTS Top 10 2001 Review
"A deft exercise in atmospheric horror and insanity." – Paul Malcolm, L.A. Weekly
It looms up out of the woods like a dormant beast. Grand, imposing... abandoned and deteriorating, the Danvers State Mental Hospital, closed down for 15 years, is about to receive 5 new visitors.
Donning protective gear, the men of the Hazmat Elimination Co. venture into the eerily vast and vacant asylum that is filled with an evil and mysterious past. Rampant patient abuse, medieval medical procedure and rumors of demonic possession are some of the many dark secrets the hospital holds – but then so do each of the men.
This "deliciously disturbing" (Us Weekly) thriller, directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist), features a talented cast including David Caruso (CSI: Miami), Peter Mullan (War Horse, Trainspotting), Paul Guilfoyle (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Josh Lucas (American Psycho), Stephen Gevedon (Show Me a Hero) and Brendan Sexton III (The Killing, Boys Don't Cry).

A Run Through '91 “Poison” DVD Review
Winner of the 1991 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Todd Haynes' controversial masterpiece is the most fervently debated film of the 1990s and a trailblazing landmark of Queer Cinema. The first feature directed by the Oscar nominated filmmaker of Far From Heaven, I'm Not There and the HBO Mini-series Mildred Pierce, this ground breaking American indie is a thrilling work of immense visual invention.
Inspired by the writings of Jean Genet, Poison deftly interweaves a trio of transgressive tales that build toward a devastating climax: "Hero", shot in mock tabloid-TV style, tells a bizarre story of suburban patricide and a miraculous flight from justice; ""Horror," filmed like a delirious 1950s B-movie melodrama, is a gothic tale of a mad sex experiment gone awry; "Homo," explores the obsessive sexual relationship between two prison inmates. A runaway hit which made national headlines when it was attacked by conservative figures including Dick Armey, Ralph Reed and minister Donald Wildmon, Poison is audacious, unforgettable and wildly entertaining.

A Run Through '91 “No Telling” Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory)
Geoffrey (Stephen Ramsey) and Lillian (Miriam Healy-Louie) are a couple spending the summer in the country in hopes of smoothing over some rough patches in their relationship. However, Geoffrey, who is a research scientist, has brought his work with him, which hardly helps, since Lillian’s biggest problem with him is that he doesn’t spend any time with her, and he seems more concerned with his career than his marriage. This is all the more galling for Lillian because she has given up her career as an artist in order to be more supportive of Geoffrey’s work. Geoffrey is also upset because he’s only been able to use mice for his lab experiments with new medications, and he is eager to begin working with larger animals; in his impatience, he begins trapping dogs, and he eventually catches the pet of a little girl named Frances (Ashley Arcemont).
