Welcome bastards to another installment of NerdBastards’ weekly DVD Tuesday feature. We list what came out today and recommend if it’s either a BUY, RENT, or PASS. Today we got three flicks that falls under the horror genre so click the jump button to see if any of them may be worth freaking you out in some way.
We also got two DVDs for the TV Show DVD section that features everyone’s favorite doctor, so check that out as well. So what are you waiting for? Check what came out after the jump and see if there is something you want!
Paranormal Activity 2
After experiencing what they think are a series of “break-ins”, a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem.
Staring: Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat, Molly Ephraim
Directed by Tod Williams (The Door in the Floor, The Adventures of Sebastian Cole)
It seems like Hollywood has found their new Saw franchise in the form of Paranormal Activity. While it does connect the two films together story wise, the release doesn’t come with many special features, which easily makes this a RENT.
My Soul To Take
Denzel Whitaker, Emily Meade, John Magaro, Max Thieriot
Directed by Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream franchise)
It seems that Wes Craven may have made his directorial comeback a little too soon as the film does nothing for the genre. Not to mention, the 3D didn’t do anything for it as well. If anything, the film does have one good death scene but you could pretty much PASS on this title while finding the death on YouTube.
I Spit On Your Grave
Starring: Sarah Butler, Chad Lindberg, Rodney Eastman
Directed by Steven R. Monroe (Mongolian Death Worm)
As it says on the synopsis, this is a remake of a cult favorite and like most remakes, it seems to be more on the miss side than the hit, which is why you can pretty much PASS on this as it doesn’t do much as a remake.
TV Show DVD
Doctor Who – Story 63: The Mutants
When the strange message pod turns up at UNIT HQ, the Doctor and his assistant Jo suddenly involved in another dangerous mission for the Time Lords. The TARDIS takes them to Skybase One above the inhospitable Solos. It is the 30th century and the planet is about to gain independence from Earth’s glorious empire. But someone on Solos has other plans and, alarmingly, the natives are slowly evolving into fierce-looking creatures. It’s time for the Doctor and Jo to find out why.
Available: 2 Disk DVD Set
Doctor Who: The Movie
This highly requested TV movie aired on Fox on May 14, 1995, and is available on North American video for the first time. The Doctor is returning home to Gallifrey with the remains of his arch-nemesis, the Master. Forced off course, the TARDIS arrives in San Francisco on New Year’s Eve 1999, where the Doctor is critically wounded in a gangland gun battle. At the local hospital, Dr. Grace Holloway fights–and fails–to save his life. Later, in the morgue, the Doctor wakes up a new man. But he is not the only one–the Master has also found himself a new body. As the clock counts down to the start of the new millennium, can the Doctor stop his oldest enemy from destroying all life on Earth?
Available: 2 Disk DVD Set
We got two more Doctor Who releases, with one being released for the first time ever in America. As always, they come with the same sort of extra features that were in previous releases, so if you’ve been collecting these individual stories, here’s your chance to add more to your collection.
*NerdBastards’ DVD Tuesday feature only list certain releases that may have some interest for our audience and thus why it doesn’t list all releases as we are sure that you wouldn’t care for those.*
