Comedy

Rod Lott
How long has it been since you've seen 1986's Little Shop of Horrors, the Oscar-nominated musical comedy produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Martin Scorsese? No, I haven't erred; according to producer David Geffen in a half-hour special on this definitive Blu-ray edition, those Hollywood heavyweights were part of his original plan.

Deathtrap

Warner Archive raises Caine in a new Blu-ray of an old mystery.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Just a decade after starring in Sleuth, Michael Caine returned to similar fare in 1982's Deathtrap. Both are crafty mysteries with a bare minimum of characters and even fewer settings, but many twists to leave viewers with spinning heads.
