Wild Eye Releasing's The Horror Of H.P. Lovecraft Heads To DVD On July 21

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Wild Eye Releasing, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has selected July 21 for the DVD release of The Horror Of H.P. Lovecraft.

This film anthology, very much in the tradition of the Hammer and Amicus horror anthologies of the 1970s, assembles ten filmmakers and their collective interpretations (in short form) of Lovecraft’s works.   

 The connecting element, titled “Lovecracked!,” has a nerd journalist (played by Elias … who also produced) trying to ferret out the works and life of the legendary H. P. Lovecraft.

The various segments included such ditties as “Re-Penetrator,” “Chaos of Flesh” and “BugBoy.”

And last, but certainly not least, it is the return of our modern day Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and his sidekick Watson (Lucy Liu) in the 24 case studies of Elementary: The Third Season.   

Bonus nuggets for this set include a deleted scene, a gag reel and five production featurettes — “Hello Kitty,” “Watson Style,” “Elements Of Deduction,” “Partners in Crime” and “Bell on the Scene.”

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Prepares Film Noir Treasures For DVD Release On June 9

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has added five film noir classics to its June 9 DVD release calendar.  Collectors, film fans and film noir affectionados will be very pleased with this line-up of film vault treasures!

Leading the way, chronologically-speaking, is director Anthony Mann’s wartime mystery, Two O'Clock Courage, teaming Tom Conway and Ann Rutherford in a film noir whodunit that has more twists and turns than a bag of pretzels.
He appears to be a man of means and she is just a cab driver, but their lives become intertwined when he staggers in front of her cab and is knocked cold … he can’t remember who he is and so she agrees to help him.   But they soon discover that there is murder afoot and he is at the center of it!!!

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Next up is director Edwin L. Martin’s 1945 film release of Johnny Angel, starring George Raft in the title role.   The mystery of a ship adrift, a deadly stowaway, a fortune in gold, a mysterious woman and the foggy streets of New Orleans drive this film noir entry.   Signe Hasso, Claire Trevor, Hoagy Carmichael, Marvin Miller and Margaret Wycherly are Raft’s co-stars.

It was during the Thanksgiving period of 1946 that future Oscar-winning director Robert Wise (1961, West Side Story; 1965, The Sound of Music) delivered one of his early directorial efforts, Criminal Court.

This RKO programmer, running a crisp 60-minutes, also starred Tom Conway, but this time as a top criminal defense attorney on the fast track to becoming the DA.  He soon finds himself hip-deep in an accidental death that police promply spin into a murder and have a prime suspect with gun in hand!   

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyThere’s blackmail, double-dealing and his girlfriend (Martha O'Driscoll) is on the hook for the murder!   Just when all seems lost — in a denouement that would make Perry Mason proud — Conway, cracks the case with a surprise witness and saves the love of his life!    


The year 1947 brings us director Ted Tetzlaff’s Riff-Raff (aka: Riffraff), the next entry in this five-film promotion from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.   

The film begins with murder as an airplane passenger is pushed to his death by a fellow passenger (played by veteran character actor Marc Krah in his film debut) and his briefcase is taken.   

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyOnce in Panama, the mysterious killer contacts Dan Hammer (Pat O’Brien), an American ex-pat with a “cloudy” reputation and hires him as a bodyguard … and soon thereafter ends up dead.   A mysterious map is at the center of it and everyone after it suspects that our boy Hammer is holding out on them.  Anne Jeffreys, Walter Slezak, Percy Kilbride (best known as Pa Kettle) and Jason Robards Sr. co-star.

Lastly, we have — from 1949 — director Richard Fleischer’s The Clay Pigeon, starring Bill Williams (perhaps best knows as Kit Carson in the 1950s television series, The Adventures of Kit Carson) as former POW on trial for treason, who takes it on the lam to prove his innocence.    With the help of the future Della Street — Barbara Hale — he not only clears his name, but exposes a vast post-war counterfeiting ring in the process!!!

Well Go USA's Snow Girl And The Dark Crystal Arrives As Both DVD And Blu-ray Product Offerings On Aug. 4

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Well Go USA announced this past week that director Peter Pau’s epic fantasy adventure, Snow Girl and the Dark Crystal (based loosely on Chinese mythology) will be available on both DVD and Blu-ray this coming Aug. 4.

The ARR is 158 days and domestic ticket sales for this foreign-language import were an impressive $165,428.

Snow Girl and the Dark Crystal is both a shot-across-the-bow of Hollywood’s forte, those mega-budget CGI effects laden super hero films (take notice, you are not the only one with such filmmaking skills), and a as film of that ilk it can stand on its own as a masterful bit of fantasy storytelling … despite the language barriers.

Oscar-winner Peter Pau (Best Cinematography for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) makes only the third feature film of his long career as a director (going back nearly three decades as a cinematographer), but that is of little matter.   He knows film; he knows what works … and he delivers that in spades.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
In Chinese culture the millennium brings forth demons that can transmute into human hosts and create chaos beyond what any dynasty can afford.  So bad boy Zhong Kui (Kun Chen — Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon, Painted Skin: The Resurrection, Flying Swords of Dragon Gate, etc.) is dispatched to literally the Gates of Hell to steal the Dark Crystal and preempt a demon onslaught.   

It’s a good plan — be proactive, take the initiative — but there is just one little problem that could be the undoing of all.  Zhong Kui falls in love with a demon … not just any demon, but the Snow Spirit Xueqing (Bingbing Li — Transformers: Age of Extinction, Resident Evil: Retribution, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, etc.).    

Snow Girl and the Dark Crystal is every bit as entertaining as any of Hollywood’s summer super-hero epics … and production-wise it can stand with any of them.   This is certainly worth a look for jaded domestic audiences looking for something of epic value produced beyond these shores.

Presented in Cantonese with English subtitles.

Cinema Libre Targets Aug. 11 For The DVD Release Of Writer/Director Mikki del Monico’s Alto

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Aug. 11 is the DVD debut date that Cinema Libre has selected for writer/director Mikki del Monico’s laugh-out-loud “Lesbian Mob Comedy,” Alto.

Actress/songstress Diana DeGarmo (2004 season of American Idol, plus a regular on The Young and the Restless) stars as Francesca "Frankie" Del Vecchio, the lead singer of working band, The Altos.   Life is good, it is just a matter of time before she marries the handsome Tony (Jake Robards — Lucky Them, Cadillac Records) … it will be a big Italian wedding, you can count on that.

Yes, Francesca is Italian through-and-through from the culture and traditions to the food, except for one thing — all of that Mafia mumbo-jumbo, which she finds abhorrent.   Her sister, Heather (Melanie Minichino), is just the opposite and views the whole “mob scene” as a kind of a cool aspect of their culture … they even have heated debates over the merits of the popular television series, Mob Hit (think: The Sopranos).

So imagine Frankie’s surprise when she finds a dead body in the trunk of her rental car.   Whoa!   Alto is a comedy about Italian-American culture, so this little “hit” — or as it might be better described as “that guy in the trunk who got whacked” — is just the catalyst to get things rolling.   And roll they do!

Heather convinces her sister to just show up at the funeral to check things out who that guy was and see if anyone might be a likely candidate as a suspect.  

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyIt is there that the second big surprise awaits Frankie.   That comes in the form of Nicolette (Natalie Knepp), the daughter of mob boss Caesar “The General” Bellafusco (Billy Worth).   The chemistry is electric.

As the two grow closer, not only is Frankie’s neat little world turned on its head, but the thing she hates the most, the mob, becomes the focus point of her life as she becomes privy to information that there are plans afoot for Caesar to be “sleeping with the fishes!”

VCI Entertainment Selects Aug. 11 For The DVD Release Of Psychotronica, Volume 4

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
In the jungle, the mighty jungle … the lion hides his eyes!!!   

That’s right, there are half-naked women are on the prowl in a jungle near you on Aug. 11 when VCI Entertainment delivers the DVD release of Psychotronica, Volume 4!

This classic “sexploitative” double-feature showcases the curvaceous talents of German actress and songbird Marion Michael in Jungle Girl and the Slaver, and Omoo (Jean Hawkshaw), Mona (Mary Ann Webb) and friends battle ape-like men in the Ed Wood-wannabe 1958 jungle gem directed by James L. Wolcott, The Wild Women of Wongo.

Jungle Girl and the Slaver is the sequel, yes a sequel, to Liane, Jungle Goddess, which caused quite the stir in 1956 when a half-naked golden-haired “woman of the wild” is found living with the Botos in the jungles of Africa.   It turns out that she is the heiress to a vast fortune, but that doesn’t prevent her from enjoying her jungle paradise.

How she doesn’t get burnt to a crisp in the tropical sun is never fully explained, but with Marion Michael on view that question really never pops to mind.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
In the sequel, she has left Germany, returned to her home in Africa and is promptly kidnapped by Arab slave traders.  You can only imagine what plans they have for this exotic beauty!!!

The co-feature of this jungle-themed double bill is The Wild Women of Wongo and it is to jungle movies (or cavewomen movies, take your pick) as Plan Nine From Outer Space was to sci-fi movies.  And that’s the beauty of it.

Psychotronica, Volume 4 … it just doesn’t get any better than this.  So pop that corn and grab your favorite beverage and enjoy this cult-status double feature on Aug. 11.

Wolfe's Of Girls And Horses Makes Its Domestic DVD Debut On June 30

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Wolfe has selected June 30 as the domestic DVD debut date for award-winning German filmmaker Monika Treut’s latest Lesbian-themed coming-of-age drama, Of Girls and Horses.

Alex (aka: Alexa) (played by Ceci Schmitz-Chuh — Umsonst, Unpolished) is 16 and nothing but a worry to her stepmother.   Drugs and shoddy schoolwork has landed her at a working horse farm for the summer.   It is the last place Alex thinks she wants to be, but this is really a do or die situation for her immediate future, both in school and at home.

It’s not that she’s your classic “rebel without a cause,” defiant for defiant’s sake.  She just feels out of place.   She is shy; almost reclusive … sensitive.  

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeySo the beauty and peace of this German North Sea coastal area (probably in the vicinity of Kiel, up near the Danish border) is, ironically, just what she needs.   Upon arrival, she meets her instructor and would-be mentor Nina (Vanida Karun) and it becomes clear from the outset that she is in an on-again, off-again relation with Christine (Ellen Grell).    

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
With the two currently on the outs, Nina has time to encourage Alex, who takes to the horses, the riding and their care, quite naturally.   It is as if a great weight has been lifted, but those nagging little addictions are hard to let go of.

It is when the horse-owning teenager, Kathy (Alissa Wilms), arrives on a summer vacation from the city arrives that the past for Alex really begins to be just that, the past.   The two are kindred spirits — the class lines are blurred — and their summer becomes one of horses and personal exploration.

Of Girls and Horses is presented in German with English subtitles.

Artsploitation Films Ready Busy June And July Blu-ray And DVD Release Slate

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Artsploitation Films has packed the months of June and July with a very busy release slate of new DVD and Blu-ray product offerings … so let’s get right to it.

Heading to the domestic market place on June 9 as both DVD and Blu-ray product offerings is Berlin-born filmmaker Till Kleinert’s mind-blowing, mixed-genre delight, Der Samurai.

Deep in the forest there is a sleepy little town (filmed on location in Bernöwe, Germany), where the local law comes in the form of Jakob (Michel Diercks), who is sort of a Paul Blart or Barney Fife type of cop — he doesn’t get a whole lot of respect from the locals.   

His latest case involves a wolf on the prowl, but what he finds out there in the spooky woods is no wolf!   It’s a sword-wielding tranny — honest, complete with long blonde hair — who launches into a night of terror by slaughtering off the townies one by one by loping off their heads.  Efforts by Jakob to put an end to the madness prove futile … and as the night wears on an eerie bond begins to form between the killer (played by Pit Bukowski) and his pursuer.  

It is as if Red Riding Hood met Zatoichi (dressed in drag) on a dark night in one of the most bizarre “slasher” tales ever put to film.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Presented in German with English subtitles … bonus features include commentary from writer/director Till Kleinert (The Longest Night) and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
The following week, June 16, Artsploitation Films is back with the DVD-only release of filmmakers Jay Lee and Jim Roof’s The House with 100 Eyes.  

Ed (Jim Roof) and his perky wife, Susan (Shannon Malone), are the seemingly perfect suburban couple.  Young, “professional” and who just happen to have converted one of their bedrooms into a movie set — like a miniature sound stage.   Cameras are in place (for multiple angles), a dingy mattress — or other set pieces — can be perfectly staged and properly lit for their movie-making specialty, snuff films.   Thrill kills for the connoisseur!

In a cinema vérité approach to their craft, the fun-loving Ed and Susan address their audience, show how their “cast members” are recruited and then how they bring them, willingly, to their little studio for their moment of fame.   On this particular day, we join these film auteurs for a night of moviemaking like no other, the production of a triple feature!!!

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyBonus goodies include a gag reel, director commentary and a “sizzle” reel.
The June release schedule closes out June 23 with both DVD and Blu-ray editions of director Romain Basset’s award-winning Horsehead.

The hauntingly beautiful Jessica (Lilly-Fleur Pointeaux) has been plagued her entire life with a recurring nightmare.  Rather than suppress it, she has entered into a dream-therapy experiment to try and discover the underlying meaning of her bizarre visions.   

This is interrupted with the news that her grandmother has died and that she is needed at the family’s countryside estate — she’s not all that eager to go since she doesn’t get along with her mother.

Once there, and after the perfunctory family conflicts with her “dear” mother, Jessica is suddenly stricken with a bad case of the “flu” and finds herself bedridden.   Is it the flu?   Hmmm, maybe; maybe not.  

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
In any case, she decides to use the downtime for a little dream exploration, and soon enters a dream state.   Being naked in a bathtub and having a wolf companion as her only protection against a sinister creature that is bedecked in a horse’s head become a common occurrence.   The dreams (nightmares) become more bizarre … and soon what is real, and what is not, come together.  

Bonus features include an extended making-of documentary titled Inside Horsehead and four of filmmaker Romain Basset’s short films, including Bloody Current Exchange and Projection.

The release calendar for the month of July beings on July 7 with the domestic Blu-ray and DVD rollout of director Hans Herbots’ detective thriller, The Treatment.

Filmed in Belgium and presented in Flemish (with English subtitles), we are introduced to Inspector Nick Cafmeyer (Geert Van Rampelberg), who is investigating what appears to be a home invasion and the abduction of a child.  This particular case has a profound impact upon him as his own brother was abducted when he too was put a child.   

As he digs deeper and deeper into the mystery he soon discovers something so sick and twisted as to shake him to his core.   Solving this mystery could take him places that no sane individual would ever want to go … and possibly bring him full circle back to events in his own life.

July 14 marks the domestic DVD debut of Dutch filmmaker Joram Lürsen’s Reckless, which is a superior remake of The Disappearance of Alice Creed.
DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey

Rico (Marwan Kenzari) and Victor (Tygo Gernandt) kidnap Laura Temming (Sarah Chronis), the daughter of a wealthy industrialist.   

Their plan is perfect.  Everything, down to the last detail has all been carefully planned out.   There is just one little problem … and that’s Laura.   She picks their partnership apart, takes control of the scheme and manipulates everything, right up until the final denouncement!   Who lives and who dies is not part of this “perfect” plan!   Reckless will keep you guessing!
Presented in Dutch with English subtitles.

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph TribbeyLastly, Artsploitation Films closes out the month of July with the domestic DVD debut of legendary French adult filmmaker Jean-François Davy’s newest film, Transgression … an “erotic” road trip as Davy explains the process (as a thinly disguised documentary) of casting an adult film.   There are plenty of willing beauties ready to answer his call.

As a bonus, Artsploitation Films has fully restored his similarly-themed 1975 documentary classic, Exhibition, which showcased the many talents of Claudine Beccarie.   Presented here, for the first time, is the fully restored director’s cut of the film. 

This double-feature is presented in French with English subtitles.

Screen Media's Plague Makes Its Domestic DVD Debut On Aug. 25

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Australia prepares to take a bite out of the living on Aug. 25 with the DVD debut of the directing team of Nick and Kosta Ouzas’ Plague.

Screen Media has picked up the domestic distribution for this outback thriller from down under and with that near-Labor Day release date that they set the timing seems to be spot-on to take advantage of Warner Bros. release of Mad Max: Fury Road about the same time.

Plague deals with the same sort of post-apocalyptic issues — survival; staying one step of what hunts you, etc. — but in the case of our Aussie heroine named Evie (Tegan Crowley), she not only has to fight off those infected with a civilization-ending viral plague, but a psychopathic predator who views the post-apocalyptic landscape as a fertile hunting ground.   Talk about your “frying pan” and “fire” scenarios!!!

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Tabs July 14 As The Street Date For Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack Editions Of Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2
