New Releases for January 5!


It’s the first New Release Tuesday of 2016!

BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

3D BLU = Available for rent on lovely 3D Blu-ray, though you must have a 3D TV to experience the full glory

@ = Available for sale in the store (but we can special order anything, see us for details)


First up, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection have brought us THE COMPLETE LADY SNOWBLOOD (@ BLU). A young woman (the legendary Meiko Kaji), trained from childhood as an assassin and hell-bent on revenge for the murders of her father and brother and the rape of her mother, hacks and slashes her way to gory satisfaction in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Japan. Hugely influential both in Japanese and American cinema (KILL BILL, anyone?), this is a must have for genre fans.


Then, one of the best movies of 2015 is here, the drug war thriller SICARIO (@ BLU). Emily Blunt plays an idealistic FBI agent recruited by the Department of Justice (and maybe the CIA) for a secret mission in Mexico. What follows tests every one of her principles and might even get her killed. Look out for the amazing cinematography from all-time great Roger Deakins.


As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: Eli Roth is back from cannibal country with GREEN INFERNO (BLU). FANTOMAS (@ BLU) is a superhero from early French cinema. M. Night Shyamalan goes found-footage with THE VISIT (@ BLU). THE WALK (@ BLU 3D) is the narrative feature version of MAN ON WIRE. Vintage noir from Robert Wise with THE CAPTIVE CITY (@ BLU). The very prolific Takashi Miike’s latest is OVER YOUR DEAD BODY (@ BLU). Tons goodies for horror fans: Get in league with Satan in DEATHGASM (@ BLU), check out the SCOUT’S GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE (@ BLU), or grab Shout Factory double feature THE HOUSE WHERE EVIL DWELLS / GHOST WARRIOR (@ BLU). Rare South Korean Godzilla knockoff YONGARY, MONSTER FROM THE DEEP (@ BLU) is finally out. Ken Russell’s VALENTINO (@ BLU) covers the life of the great matinee idol. And last but not least, we’ve got TRUE DETECTIVE SEASON 2 (@ BLU).
