Horror DVD Releases – Week of March 17th, 2009

what an absolutely crappy week for horror dvds. last week’s pick of the week was let the right one in — and now i’m reduced to having to pick twilight? really? if the other two didn’t look so unpromising, i certainly wouldn’t have chosen it… but honestly, it looks like it’s the only thing remotely worth giving a look this week. of course, i’m a cinematic masochist, so i’ll watch all three. but my recommendation would be to give dvds a pass this week and just play resident evil 5 or house of the dead: overkill until this all blows over.

Dark Reprieve (2008)
With no idea how they got there, Kate (Janelle Bartosek) and Matt (Shawn Storer) awaken in an abandoned jail where they’re pursued by hideous creatures. Meanwhile, on the outside, police question a model (Sarah Jackson) about five brutal killings that may be connected to Kate and Matt’s ordeal. As the duo endures an endless nightmare, the interrogation follows an eerie parallel to the terror raging inside the prison walls.

Walled In (2008)
Young engineer Sam (Mischa Barton) is hired to oversee the demolition of a remote building. However, she learns that the architect, in a perversion of Egyptian mythology, buried people alive in the walls. As Sam works to unravel the mystery behind this awful place, she is haunted by the spirits of the victims — and the discovery that she may be next to die. Cameron Bright and Deborah Kara Unger co-star in this eerie thriller.

Pick of the Week

Twilight (2008)
Based on Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling novel, Twilight follows the saga of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who moves to a small town to live with her father. At school, she meets Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a mysterious classmate who reveals himself to be a 108-year-old vampire. Despite his cautions, Bella falls in love with Edward, which endangers her life when a coven of bloodsuckers arrives to challenge Edward and his family.
