Not exactly a huge amount of flicks being released on disc this week but hey, who would be crazy enough to go up against the biggest movie of all time, The Dark Knight, anyway? Well, a zombie fighting Japanese swim team for one. Yep, Switchblade Sisters' Attack Girls' Swim Team vs. The Undead drops on DVD today and even though it got the thumbs down from quietearth, I'll probably still give it a spin.

Henry Miller's crime thriller Anamorph is also out on DVD today along with Lars Von. Trier's Europa from Criterion. On the boxed set front, we've got a nice I am Legend: Ultimate Collector's Box, Deadwood: The Complete Series and of course LOST: Season 4.

Trailers and links for all after the break.

Purchase from Amazon

Poor Aki's having the worst first day ever at her new school. As if it's not bad enough that she gets pushed into the swimming pool as a prank, there's a new virus circulating among the student body and the doctor who comes to inoculate them against it is a raving madman. A raving madman who likes to experiment with viruses, no less, and one who pumps the entire school full of a virus of his own design that transforms them into bloodthirsty maniacs. Things would be looking grim indeed if not for the fact that pool water neutralizes the virus and Aki was actually kidnapped years earlier and trained as a secret assassin by the same mad doctor. It's time for Aki to kick some ass but not before stripping down for some lesbian loving with her new found best friend.
