Horror Horizon – November 27

Notable DVD releases for the coming Tuesday. Selections are subject to Blu-Ray release as well. After Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, you will have Tuesday to spend more money.

Men In Black 3



“In Men in BlackT 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.”

ParaNorman



“From the makers of Coraline comes the story of Norman, a boy who must use his special powers to save his town from a centuries-old curse. In addition to spooky zombies, he’ll also have to take on unpredictable ghosts, wily witches and, worst, of all, clueless grown-ups. But this young ghoul whisperer will soon find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits. Featuring the voice talents of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin and John Goodman, it’s a frightfully funny tale for the whole family.”

The Apparition

“When frightening events start to occur in their home, young couple Kelly (Ashley Greene) and Ben (Sebastian Stan) discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural, Patrick (Tom Felton), but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force.”

The Day

“Open war against humanity rages. Five survivors, lost and on the run. The pursuit is relentless, the bullets are dwindling and the battle is everywhere. This is a 24hr look into their lives. Fight or die.”

Rites of Spring

“A group of kidnappers abduct the daughter of a wealthy socialite and hide out in an abandoned school in the middle of the woods. But feelings of guilt soon overtake the kidnappers, dividing the group and putting their entire plan in jeopardy. The evening further spirals out of control when their poorly chosen hideout becomes a hunting ground for a mysterious creature that requires springtime ritualistic sacrifices. A unique blend of crime thriller and supernatural suspense tale, RITES OF SPRING shocks from start to finish and showcases a fresh new take on the horror genre.”

Visions of Ecstasy

“Visions of Ecstasy, an experimental art film made in 1989, is the only film ever to have been banned outright in the UK solely on the grounds of blasphemy. Further, its depiction and interpretation of the erotic imaginings of the 16th Century Carmelite nun, St. Teresa, were such that the film’s banning was upheld in an historic judgment at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in a case that took seven years to reach its conclusion. Now, due to the abolition of the UK’s blasphemy laws in 2008, Visions of Ecstasy is finally being released. 

Also included on this disc is the director’s nunsploitation feature, Sacred Flesh (2000) (in SD), in which a Mother Superior struggles with her sexual desires in a series of imagined dialogues with Mary Magdalene while her mind torments her with images of sexual perversion, lesbianism and sadomasochism along with the short film Axel. CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT – 18+ (Note: Estimated total running time reflects all three features, ”Visions of Ecstasy”, ”Sacred Flesh” and ”Axel”. ”Sacred Flesh” and ”Axel” are in Standard Definition)”

6 Degrees of Hell

“In rural Pennsylvania, six people are connected by a supernatural force that has claimed the life of one of them. Now, a paranormal perfect storm is about to descend on a local Halloween haunted house while a paranormal investigator (Corey Feldman) tries to piece together exactly what’s happening.” 

Lady in the Death House

“All attempts at reprieve have failed and an innocent woman is an hour away from her execution. An investigator works desperately to save her from the electric chair.”
