First up, one of the most notorious horror films of all time is finally out on Blu-ray from Grindhouse Releasing.  Ruggero Deodato's CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (@ BLU SALE) is famous for its legendary violence and might even be the original found-footage horror film, since it purports to consist of documentary footage taken by a film crew that disappeared in the Amazon rainforest. The film was considered so authentic at the time that Deodato was actually charged with murdering the actors on camera, and he had to produce them in court in order to clear his name! Certainly not for the squeamish!

 

Then there's the latest from renowned documentarian Errol Morris. THE UNKNOWN KNOWN (@ BLU SALE) is essentially a feature-length interview with former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Much like Morris' FOG OF WAR, which was about Rober McNamara, this features Morris directly questioning Rumsfeld about his entire career, his most famous decisions, and, most importantly, the mountain of documents he produced during his tenure, often using very carefully chosen language. Those looking for a contrite retrospective from a man who regrets his more questionable decisions will be disappointed, but what comes through is a portrait of a careful, often stubborn strategist with a deceptively clear conscience.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: A more recent found-footage horror film, AFFLICTED (BLU). Delightful Indian comedy and indie hit THE LUNCHBOX (@ BLU SALE). John Waters' incredible rockabilly musical CRY-BABY (@ BLU SALE), starring Johnny Depp. New from Scream Factory: THE FINAL TERROR (@ BLU SALE)...seriously, why do people ever go camping? There's the 1955 musical KISMET (@ BLU SALE) on Blu. On Wednesday we'll have GOOD SAM, OPERATION PETTICOAT and SO THIS IS NEW YORK from Olive Films. And Don Draper and Harry Potter (that is, Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe) finally meet in the BBC miniseries YOUNG DOCTOR'S NOTEBOOK (@ SALE). For the kids there's LEGEND OF KORRA: BOOK 2 - SPIRITS (BLU). And don't forget to scroll down for a full list of all the Manufacture-on-Demand titles we got in from Fox and Warner Archive.
