The Cell is a decent is a solid little Sci-Fi/Serial Killer flick that boasts some crazy visuals, many of which were inspired by actual works of art; certain scenes in the movie are so dreamy and colorful, that they actually play like living-art, which always made this movie stand out to us.
Tarsem Singh is definitely a unique and visually-oriented director, and if any movie of his is bound to stun on Blu-ray, it's The Cell. We can't wait to check it out.

Some will tell you that Maggie is an uneventful, quiet, slow, nearly zombie-less zombie flick, and they wouldn't be wrong. Thing is though that Maggie is also a fantastic character study, and a deeply emotional story about a Father's love for his Daughter, both of which are more important than anything else going on in the movie.
We loved the hell out of this one, and will be buying it on day one.
- "Making Maggie" Featurette.
- Deleted Scenes.
- Cast & Crew Interviews.
- Audio Commentary with Director Henry Hobson.

Not quite as good as the first movie, we really liked The Pact 2 for what it was. Why it took so long to hit Blu-ray & DVD is beyond us, but at least it's available now for fans of the series to enjoy back to back with the first one. For our complete thoughts on the movie, check out the link to our review below.

While on a trip to Lovers’ Lane, 17-year-old Jami (Addison Timlin) watches as her date is brutally slain by a masked serial killer. Barely escaping with her life, she becomes obsessed with finding the man referred to as ""The Phantom."" As the body count climbs and the carnage comes closer, Jami delves deeper into the mystery, following clues that point her toward the killer’s true identity. Starring Anthony Anderson, Gary Cole, Edward Herrman, Joshua Leonard, Denis O’Hare, Travis Tope and Veronica Cartwright, The Town That Dreaded Sundown puts Texarkana back on the map for all the wrong reasons.
Another movie that has taken a questionable amount of time to hit DVD, we could have sworn that The Town That Dreaded Sundown had already been released on both Blu-ray & DVD...which shows you how much we know sometimes.
For our complete thoughts on the movie check out the link to our review below, but in general, we really loved this remake of the 70's quasi-classic. We'll be waiting for this one to hit Blu-ray before picking up a copy, but for those of you who prefer DVD, this is a great movie to add to your collection.

- Alien Outpost and Dark Summer were alright, and most Horror Fans will probably find them worthy of at least a rental.
- The Treatment looks to be an interesting Thriller that will continue Artsploitation Films' streak of solid releases of late.
- Scream Factory's release of Robot Jox is an interesting one for us; I remember seeing this one at the show when it came out way back in 1989, and not caring for it all that much. It's since become a Cult Classic of sorts, and as cheesy as we remember it being, we also remember that seeing giant robots duking it out on the big screen was pretty cool. It's not Pacific Rim, but for lovers of all things Mech, it's a Must Own title.
- Deranged s the story of Ed Gein brought to life in the form of a Video Nasty from the 70's, and Spasmo is one of the oddest Gialli that we've ever seen. Both are worth a look.
On the DVD front this week...
- Awaken actually looks pretty good.
- Flight of the Living Dead is an above-average zombie flick that is definitely worth a look.
- And finally we have Bitten; a mildly-popular Syfy show that its fans will surely want to own.
Everything else, as always, is a crap-shoot. Good luck with that.
