"Deadbeat at Dawn" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
Jim VanBebber's notorious, blood-drenched cult classic Deadbeat at Dawn rises again on the advent of its 30th anniversary, newly restored for the first time on Blu-ray. Locked and loaded with a raft of new extras, see Deadbeat as you've never seen it before - in all its head-busting, bone-crushing glory! Written by, directed by and starring VanBebber, Deadbeat follows the story of Goose - a gang leader whose girlfriend is brutally slaughtered when he attempts to leave the thug life behind. Pulled back into the gang, who've now formed an uneasy alliance with the thugs that butchered his girl, Goose sees an opportunity to exact his brutal, deadly revenge. The very definition of DIY, independent filmmaking (VanBebber quit film school after his first year and used his student loan to fund the movie), Deadbeat at Dawn surpasses its low-budget origins to create a revenge movie that delivers more thrills and bloody spills than all of Chuck Norris' films combined.
Brand new free-wheeling audio commentary with Jim VanBebber (’Goose’, The Ravens’ Gang Leader), actor Paul Harper (’Danny Carmodi’, The Spyders’ Gang Leader) and guest Cody Lee Hardin, moderated by filmmaker Victor Bonacore (Diary of a Deadbeat: The Story

"Art School Confidential" Blu-Ray Review (MVD Marquee Collection)
A HILARIOUS COMEDY FROM THE CREATORS OF
ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL follows talented young artist Jerome Platz (Max Minghella, The Social Network) as he escapes from high school to a tiny East Coast art school. Here the boyish freshman's ambition is to become the world's greatest artist, like his hero Picasso. Unfortunately, the beauty and craft of Jerome's portraiture are not appreciated in an anything-goes art class. Neither his harsh judgments of his classmates' efforts nor his later attempts to create pseudo-art of his own win him any admirers. But Jerome does attract the attentions of his dream girl, the stunning and sophisticated Audrey (Sophia Myles, Transformers: Age of Extinction), an artist's model and daughter of a celebrated artist. Rejecting the affectations of the local art scene, Audrey is drawn to Jerome's sincerity. When Audrey shifts her attention to Jonah (Matt Keeslar, Scream 3), a hunky painter who becomes the school's latest art star, Jerome is heartbroken. Desperate, he concocts a risky plan to make a name for himself and win her back.
From Terry Zwigoff, the director of Ghost World and Bad Santa, Art School Confidential features a stellar supporting cast that includes John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire), Ethan Suplee (Mallrats), Joel David Moore (Avatar), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family), Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge!), Nick Swardson (Grandma's Boy), Adam Scott (Step Brothers) and Scoot McNairy (Argo) in a movie that's "enjoyable and reprises the same dyspeptic attitude that infused Ghost World" (The Washington Post).

Merv Doody (James Heathcoate) is the ultimate horror movie geek until the day a notvery- dangerous escaped mental patient lands on his doorstep.

But when the masked wacko develops a taste for bloodshed, he becomes a walking, stalking killing machine that only Merv and Onkey can stop. Gratuitous nudity, gross-out gore, foul language, arse piranhas, ska-punk legends Less Than Jake, and more await in this international cult sensation written, produced and directed by Christian James that fans and critics call the most offensive and hilarious horror comedy of the year!
