THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD: COLLECTOR'S EDITION [BLU-RAY] (1985): "No one will mistake Return of the Living Dead for the genre’s best, but that doesn’t make it a bad entry. The movie mixes comedy and horror in a satisfying way." Starring Clu Gulager, James Karen. Shout! Factory, $34.93, 7/19/2016.
PRECIOUS CARGO [BLU-RAY] (2016): "When a movie’s title becomes its most clever element, it probably will flop. Such becomes the case with Precious Cargo, a film that suffers from a surfeit of flaws and never becomes even vaguely entertaining." Starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Bruce Willis. Lionsgate, $19.99, 6/28/2016.
GREEN ROOM [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier follows 2013’s terrific Blue Ruin with 2016’s Green Room, another solid effort. Tense and compelling, the movie keeps us with it from start to finish." Starring Anton Yelchim, Imogen Poots. Lionsgate, $24.99, 7/12/2016.
GRIDLOCKED [BLU-RAY] (2016): "Could you find less effective action movies than Gridlocked? Sure, but you can also locate so many superior efforts that I can’t think of a reason to point you in its direction." Starring Dominic Purcell, Cody Hackman. Magnolia, $29.97, 6/14/2016.
SLASHER: SEASON ONE [BLU-RAY] (2016): "With no cliché left unturned, Slasher delivers a lackluster series. It never forms its own identity, and that leaves it as a slow, tedious horror experience." Starring Katie McGrath, Brandon Jay McLaren. Shout! Factory, $27.99, 7/12/2016.
THE FAMILY FANG (2016): "At its core, The Family Fang takes on an intriguing notion: the impact that a life wholly based on “art” would have on children. The movie doesn’t explore this as well as I’d like, though, so it seems only sporadically interesting." Starring Jason Bateman, Nicole Kidman. Anchor Bay, $22.98, 7/5/2016.
