New Releases for October 28!

It's another New Release Tuesday! We've got another smokin' stack of new titles as usual.


BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

@ = Available for sale in the store (but we can special order anything, see us for details)


First up, the Heroes at the Criterion Collection bring us a THE COMPLETE JACQUES TATI (@ BLU). Though he made only a handful of films, director, writer, and actor Tati ranks among the most beloved of all cinematic geniuses. With a background in music hall and mime performance, Tati steadily built an ever-more-ambitious movie career that ultimately raised sight-gag comedy to the level of high art. In the surrogate character of the sweet and bumbling, eternally umbrella-toting and pipe-smoking Monsieur Hulot, Tati invented a charming symbol of humanity lost in a relentlessly modernizing modern age. This set gathers his six hilarious features—JOUR DE FETE, MONSIEUR HULOT'S HOLIDAY, MON ONCLE, PLAYTIME, TRAFIC, and PARADE — along with seven delightful Tati-related short films.


Next, after years of fan speculation and rumors, Shout Factory has unveiled NIGHTBREED: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT (@ BLU). Back in 1990, author Clive Barker made a film of his novel Cabal. But when NIGHTBREED was originally released, it was heavily cut by the studio, which wanted a more traditional monster movie rather than the bizarre adventure Barker had concocted. After an exhaustive hunt for the deleted material, long thought lost, a complete cut of NIGHTBREED has been reassembled, and this new box set features both cuts and a host of other great special features. 


As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: Criterion also delivers the original 1988 THE VANISHING (@ BLU). Music industry romance BEGIN AGAIN (BLU). James Franco's Cormac McCarthy adaptation CHILD OF GOD. Practice your Ha-Do-Ken with STREET FIGHTER: ASSASSIN'S FIST (BLU). There's Elmore Leonard adaptation LIFE OF CRIME (BLU). Billy Wilder's Hollywood satire FEDORA (@ BLU). Jane Austen homage DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLY (@ BLU). Zach Braff's kickstarted second feature WISH I WAS HERE (BLU). Classic spaghetti western COMPANEROS (@ BLU). The origins of the "Lone Wolf & Cub" series, SHOGUN ASSASSIN (@ BLU). One of the greatest documentaries ever made, LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF (@ BLU) is finally available on home video. And for the TV junkie in your house, the legendary WKRP IN CINCINNATI (@) is now on DVD.

And just in time for Halloween, we got in a ton of the scary stuff. Italian rock-musical gorefests DEMONS (BLU) and DEMONS 2 (BLU). Mario Bava's gorgeous PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES (@ BLU), secretly an inspiration for ALIEN. Famed trashterpiece SQUIRM (@ BLU) is finally on blu-ray. Kim Ki-Duk's latest bout of insanity, MOEBIUS (@ BLU). Straight from the Library of Congress vaults is a new restoration of Bela Lugosi in DEATH KISS (@ BLU). And a New York cop fights Satan in DELIVER US FROM EVIL (BLU)
