quietearth [DVD News 03.03.08] post apocalyptic zombies news dvd horror

Well folks, it's that time again.. DVD's are dropping tomorrow, and we've got quite a few this week, both out of agentorange's and my pick lists. I'm going to to start off with one of my personal favorites which I reviewed last year, and that's the zombie thriller Automaton Transfusion, and while it's a great film, be warned, the ending will piss you off. Next up we have Albert Pyun's horror western Left For Dead shot entirely in Argentina. Continuing on we have medical anesthetic thriller (with Jessica Alba) Awake, then an apocalyptic 2 pack from Echo Bridge containing 10.5 Apocalypse & Category 7. Next is one of our all time favorites The Quiet Earth as part of Anchor Bay's cult fiction series. Not to be outdone, they are also releasing David Bowie's The Man Who Fell To Earth which should be getting a remake soon, and I hope someone will eventually make Walter Tevis's best book, "Mockingbird" into a film. We have trailers, synopsis, and amazon links following.
