"A Fugitive from the Past" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow)
This epic crime drama is considered to be the the magnum opus of the five decades-long career of acclaimed Japanese
Considered the magnum opus of the five decades-long career of Tomu Uchida (Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji, The Mad Fox), the epic crime drama A Fugitive from the Past was voted third in the prestigious Kinema Junpo magazine's 1999 poll of the Top Japanese Films of the 20th Century. In 1947, a freak typhoon sends a passenger ferry running between Hokkaido and mainland Japan plunging to the ocean depths, with hundreds of lives lost. During the chaos, three men are witnessed fleeing a burning pawnshop in the Hokkaido port town of Iwanai. The police suspect theft and arson, and when Detective Yumisaka (Junzaburo Ban) discovers the burned remains of a boat and the corpses of two men, he sets about tracking the shadowy third figure. Meanwhile, the mysterious Takichi Inukai (Rentaro Mikuni) takes shelter with a prostitute, Yae (Sachiko Hidari), a brief encounter that will come to define both of their lives. A decade later, long after the trail has gone cold, Yumisaka is called back by his successor Detective Ajimura (Ken Takakura) as two new dead bodies are found. Making its home video debut outside of Japan, this adaptation of Tsutomu Minakami's 1700-page novel is a landmark in master director Uchida's oeuvre. Its gritty monochrome photography has the immediacy of newsreel as Uchida uses the landscapes of postwar Japan to explore the massive social upheaval and unspoken legacies of the war, and create an unsettling karmic allegory of a man's struggle to escape his past sins.

Patreon Pick "Slither" Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory)
"A wickedly fun horror flick!" – David Germain, Associated Press
Prepare yourself for this terrifying, twisted and chilling film that critics are calling "the most entertaining horror movie in years" (Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
From the co-writer and director of Guardians Of The Galaxy and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, comes the deliciously demented story of an unnamed evil wreaking havoc on a small town. Intent on devouring all life on Earth, this dark and slimy entity is infecting anyone in its path. Now it's up to the local sheriff, Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion, Firefly, Serenity), and his team to stop the spread of rampant devastation – and shocking mutilation – before it's too late. This outrageously funny horror film also stars Michael Rooker (Guardians Of The Galaxy, The Walking Dead), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect) and Gregg Henry (Body Double, Jason Bourne).
Why We Love It
“If you’re a fan of Gunn’s work and haven’t got around to seeing Slither yet, Scream Factory’s Blu-ray is a great way to experience the under-appreciated film.” – Adam Frazier, Geeks of Doom
“Shout! has ported over all of the bonus features on the Universal DVD, recorded a new commentary with Gunn and Fillion, and shot two new interviews. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.” – Dr. Stephen Larson, Blu-ray.com
“Because of where theatrical horror was in the early 2000s—caught up in remakes, J-horror and the more brutal and grim films like Saw and Hostel—Slither got lost in the shuffle. Seeing it rediscovered over the last ten years to the point where it’s now an excellent Scream Factory special edition has been very rewarding.” – Patrick Bromley, Daily Dead
“Slither is a hilarious, gross and excitingly fun movie that holds up remarkably well. This Blu-ray features a terrific transfer to go along with a fun audio track. Scream Factory has stock piled up the previous extras and added some great new interviews and a commentary all their own. This is a wildly underseen and underappreciated move, and its getting an outstanding little release here that hopefully see more people discovering it, some giving it a second chance and the fans rewarded for their love of the film.” – Brandon Peters, Why So Blu
