Christopher Webster [DVD News 02.23.09] movie news scifi dvd horror action thriller

Even though there aren't tons of flicks hitting DVD this week, we're definitely interested in a few hidden gems. First off, Dead Birds director Alex Turner's back with a nifty looking desert horror called Red Sands. It's straight to DVD but looks like a renter nonetheless.

I'm also happy to see that the Jung Brothers' 2007 Korean shocker Epitaph is finally getting some DVD love over here from Danger After Dark's TLA Releasing. I've been waiting see it since reviews started coming in from fests last year.

This one shouldn't really surprise us. In light of the upcoming remake of Last House on the Left, MGM are releasing a new unrated "Collector's Edition" of Wes Craven's 1972 original. This is one I'm actually looking forward to revisiting especially after seeing how well Paramount did with their own unrated release of the original My Bloody Valentine.

And of course, how could we forget to mention the return of our favorite animated delivery crew - the cast of Futurama - who are back in the last of their straight to DVD "movies" Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder. Sure the films have been somewhat hit and miss but sitting down with Fry, Bender and the rest of the Planet Express crew is always good times in my book.

Red Sands looks just like another military horror, and most of them are garbage. You cannot be original with this sub genre, and all of them have the same ending - a new group of people arriving to the same place.
