Inferno

A gorgeously shot, excellent horror film


Horror

Rod Lott
I'd urge any true cinemaniac to explore the filmography of Dario Argento, whether they like horror or not.

Deep Red

Dario Argento’s genuinely unnerving masterpiece hits Blu-ray


Horror

Rod Lott
I'd seen Dario Argento's 1975 masterpiece "Deep Red" once before, about 10 years ago on a muddy print from one of those multidisc collections of public-domain horror films you pick up in bargain bins.

The Nesting

A forgotten ’80s horror film is ripe for rediscovery


Horror

Rod Lott
No wonder 1981's "The Nesting" is such an obscure horror film. What the hell does that title even mean?

Trailers from Hell! Volume Two

It’s like watching 20 movies with all the boring parts cut out!


Documentary

Rod Lott
Movie trailers can be found in the bonus screens of most DVDs. Rare is the case when the clips are the featured attraction, and a feature film is the extra — as in "Trailers from Hell! Volume Two."

Torso

Hungry for giallo? Take a stab at this one.


Horror

Rod Lott
So good are its recent Dario Argento reissues in high-definition that I'd been waiting patiently for Blue Underground's Blu-ray release of "Torso," a 1973 giallo from director Sergio Martino ("The Mountain of the Cannibal God"). Not only did it not disappoint, but it surpassed my expectations.

Talking Heads: Chronology

Seeking a career retrospective of a rock iconoclast? Watch out: You might get what you’re after.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Pared down from an earlier, more deluxe release, the "Talking Heads: Chronology" DVD nonetheless paints a satisfying start-to-finish portrait of an American original via live footage.

The Five Man Army

Take 'Five.'


Western

Rod Lott
Before he became Itay’s master of horror, Dario Argento knocked out a few screenplays, including one of Sergio Leone's legendary Western epics, Once Upon a Time in the West. Lesser-known is 1969's The Five Man Army. That's too bad, because it brings an “international all-star team” approach to the spaghetti Western, and doesn’t forget the all-aces Ennio Morricone score!

The Cat o' Nine Tails

Get whipped with another hi-def slice of Dario Argento.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Blue Underground continues its all-aces reissues of Dario Argento's work on Blu-ray with his sophomore film, 1971's "The Cat o' Nine Tails."
