What if THE GODFATHER had been made in the Los Angeles suburbs for the price of a used car? Then you'd have something close to MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE (@ BLU SALE), a long-forgotten cult gangster movie from 1978. Produced, written, and directed by actor and singer Duke Mitchell, who's also the star, it's a very low-budget rise-and-fall mafia movie made with genuine passion. Mitchell may not be the most capable filmmaker, but he cares deeply about the way organized crime and his Italian heritage had become inextricable in the movies, and so he made his own film to comment on that directly. MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE is finally given a proper release this week with a gorgeous blu-ray from Grindhouse Releasing.

 

There's another ultra-rare cult film getting a proper blu-ray this week, 1982's THE FAN (@ BLU SALE), a German thriller about a young woman obsessed with a pop star. Part romance, part horror film, part feminist allegory, this is a really unique movie that will hopefully find a wider audience now.

 

As for the rest, don't forget to check out the following: The great French master Alain Resnais' final film LIFE OF RILEY (@ BLU SALE). There's gonzo Japanese bondage comedy R100 (@ BLU SALE). Joseph Losey's subversive noir THE PROWLER (@ BLU SALE) has been newly restored. Norwegian submarine thriller PIONEER (@ BLU SALE) surfaces. Spend a third night at the museum in NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB (BLU). Horror fans get modern werewolf movie LATE PHASES: NIGHT OF THE LONE WOLF (@ BLU SALE) and classic slasher DON'T GO IN THE WOODS (@ BLU SALE). The beloved THE SOUND OF MUSIC (@ BLU SALE) get's a 50th Anniversary re-release. And THE BREAKFAST CLUB (@ BLU SALE) gets a 30th Anniversary shot, alone with the JOHN HUGHES YEARBOOK COLLECTION (@ BLU SALE), which contains BREAKFAST CLUB, SIXTEEN CANDLES, and WEIRD SCIENCE. On the TV front, we've also got the first season of pirate series BLACK SAILS and SHAMELESS: SEASON 4.
