DVD Releases: August 23, 2011

Posted: August 23, 2011 by Jenny Dreadful in Film, News

Final Girl Support Group is going through some changes right now. They’re good changes, but there’s a need to expand our content outside news to include more reviews and editorials. To assist this effort, I’d like to trim the fat a bit in my weekly DVD posts. Do I need to list every SyFy weather disaster or cheap slasher that comes our way?

Let’s not waste our time anymore. Let’s talk about the titles that deserve our attention. My Recommendations this week:

Cold Fish

When Shamoto’s teenage daughter was caught stealing, a generous middle-aged man helps to resolve the situation. The man and his wife offer to have Shamoto’s daughter work at their fish store. Shamoto soon discovers the horrific truth of the seemingly perfect couple…who force him to get his hands dirty in their brutal business. Inspired by true events, Cold Fish is a bloodcurdling suspense drama that unveils the underlying insanity of an ordinary man.

A bloody Japanese drama from the director of Suicide Club presented by Bloody Disgusting Selects. A strong stomach is a must.  http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/selects/releases/cold-fish/

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

It’s back! The classic TV MOW that continues to cast a spell almost 40 years after it was first broadcast; in a new remastered and enhanced edition. Sally (Kim Darby) and Alex Farnham’s (Jim Hutton) marriage has a sinister wedge driven through it; when her occult “imaginings” threaten to derail his career after they inherit Sally’s grandmother’s house. Also starring William Demarest. Enhanced Content: Superfan commentary track from horror fans and pros Jeffrey Riddick; Steve Barton (“Uncle Creepy”) and Sean Ably.

Just in time for the remake’s release this Friday, a Remastered Special Edition of the 1973 chiller is now available.  See details on Warner Archive’s shop

Troll Hunter

The government says there’s nothing to worry about it’s just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway. But local hunters don’t believe it and neither do a trio of college students who want to find out the truth. Armed with a video camera, they trail a mysterious poacher, who wants nothing to do with them. However, their persistence lands them straight in the path of the objects of his pursuits: trolls. They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero the trollhunter risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.
