DVD Tuesday 2/8/11


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.

Available: Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo, DVD


My Soul To Take


Adam “Bug” Heller was supposed to die on the bloody night his father went insane. Unaware of his dad’s terrifying crimes, he has been plagued by nightmares since he was a baby. But if Bug hopes to save his friends from the monster that’s returned, he must face an evil that won’t rest… until it finishes the job it began the day he was born.

Starring: 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.

Available: Blu-Ray, DVD

I Spit On Your Grave


A remake of the controversial 1979 cult classic, “I Spit on Your Grave” retells the horrific tale of writer Jennifer Hills, who takes a retreat from the city to a charming cabin in the woods to start on her next book. But Jennifer’s presence in the small town attracts the attention of a few morally deprived locals led who set out one night to teach this city girl a lesson.

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.

Available: Blu-Ray, 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.*
