The big one this week is Brian De Palma's cult horror musical PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (@ BLU SALE). A composer signs a pact with the evil record producer Swann, who betrays and disfigures him. When Swann steals his music and uses it to open a fabulous nightclub, it's the perfect opportunity for some ruthless revenge! De Palma is a master filmmaker, and he deploys every trick in the book to bring this nightmare to life. With original songs by Paul Williams, who plays the sinister Swann, this is one of the greatest rock musicals ever made!

And speaking of cult horror films, we've got a long-awaited release of a movie that for years was one of the Holy Grails of psychotronic cinephilia. BLOODSUCKING FREAKS (@ BLU SALE)is one of the most notorious grindhouse films of all time. It's about a couple of "magicians" who use their show as a cover for kidnapping and torturing and murdering people on stage! Incredibly gory and very, very low budget, this one was hard to see for years. Now it's been lovingly remastered for Blu-ray!

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Shailene Woodley stars in DIVERGENT (@ BLU SALE), another YA series about a future dystopia overthrown by a tough teen. There's good old fashioned highway hijinx in NEED FOR SPEED (BLU). Martin Landau vs. Jack Palance vs. a man-eating Space Monster in WITHOUT WARNING (@ BLU SALE). More medieval action in IRONCLAD: BATTLE FOR BLOOD (BLU). And how much bad luck for smashing the haunted mirror in OCULUS (@ BLU SALE)? We've also got new seasons of CALIFORNICATION and COMMUNITY.
