Needle

You may feel a little prick ...


Horror

Rod Lott
After letting loose a couple of duds in two Asian flicks — "The Sylvian Experiments" and "The Child's Eye" — the horror arm of Lionsgate DVD gets its groove back on track by going Down Under and bringing back "Needle."

Psychic Experiment

I predict you'll loathe it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Slick direction, arresting visuals, palpable tension, appealing actors, a can't-miss concept — I'm describing not "Psychic Experiment," but a trailer that appeared before it on the DVD, for the upcoming "The Hunters." It looks kind of cool; I look forward to seeing it.

Intruder

'Irv, cleanup on aisle everywhere!'


Horror

Rod Lott
Think back to 1989: Down at the Ranch Market, you could get something Xeroxed for just 15 cents, or buy a whole pack of cigs for $1.89!

Jessicka Rabid

Should be put down.


Horror

Rod Lott
Made for an apparent $1.99, "Jessicka Rabid" is the worst movie I've seen all year, and perhaps the year before that. I have nothing against no-budget movies as long as there's enough else going on to mitigate the financial deficiencies.

Little Deaths

Buckle up. Things are about to get messy.


Horror

Rod Lott
The term "little death" serves as a euphemism for "orgasm," so it makes sense that the British horror anthology "Little Deaths" explores the inexorable link between sex and death.

Bedlam: Season One

Has nothing to do with football, everything to do with ghosts.


Television series

Rod Lott
Bedlam Heights has an occupancy problem. Seems so few people wish to rent an apartment in a building that was once an insane asylum. Fewer when they learn the place is haunted by the ghosts of its former residents.

Gurozuka

You've got 'Ring' around the collar!


Horror

Rod Lott
Stop me if you've heard this one before: Japanese students stumble upon a mysterious tape featuring a girl with long, black, stringy hair who soon appears in real life to kill.

Shark Night

Compared to 'Jaws,' it's all gums, but that's OK.


Horror

Rod Lott

With a title like "Shark Night," you know exactly what you're going to get: a dumb thriller about sharks eating people.

Cold Sweat

Wanna see a terrific twisted thriller from Argentina? BAM!


Horror

Rod Lott
When Román (Facundo Espinosa, "The Motorcycle Diaries") tracks down his girlfriend to the apartment building of the guy she's been seeing behind his back, he isn't quite prepared for what he finds: two old guys menacing several young women with nitroglycerin, acid and other ridiculously volatile chemicals left over from a real-life 1975 uprising in Argentina.
