Toes the line of Syfy stupidity.


Rod Lott
At least Bigfoot does not waste viewers’ time in showing them Bigfoot. They have to wait one minute, tops, so if that’s all you ask of this Asylum release that premiered recently on Syfy, you’re golden.

Grimm: Season One

These ain't no fairy tales.

Television series

Rod Lott
Marrying Hollywood's current fairy-tale craze to the ever popular crime procedural is Grimm. While it works on both levels, that it blends the two into a unified whole gives the concept so much fizz, as the 22 episodes of its five-disc first season indicate. This one's perfect for marathoning.

The Barrens

Something in Jersey is more demonic than Snooki.


Rod Lott
In a post-Saw world, Darren Lynn Bousman quietly has been making a series of horror films more in line with scary movies of the 1970s than the torture-porn genre he helped usher in. Already this year, DVD has brought us his superlative Mother's Day remake and the low-key demonic pic 11-11-11, and now The Barrens. It's just too bad they've all been denied wide theatrical releases.

The Wicked

Will leave you not spellbound, but spellbored.


Rod Lott
When you put a little kid in danger in your first scene, as The Wicked does, I'm in. That’s a fairly bold move, and it signals that the film is going to — pardon my French — have some balls and do something different.

Bruce Lee: The Legacy Collection

Never forget.


Rod Lott

It seems like it was just three months ago that Shout! Factory reissued the four core Bruce Lee flicks that aren't Enter the Dragon … because it was!
