The Digital Dread Report for February 26th

The last week in February is a rather uneventful one as far as video releases are concerned.

With all of the higher profile releases that came out last week, and the ones coming on March 5th, maybe the powers that be are just giving our wallets a break?

If there's anything that should bear the "Must Have" moniker this week, it would have to be the Redemption Films releases.

Oasis of the Zombies and Zombie Lake are both early 80's B-movies involving Nazi zombies, and... well, a lot of cheesiness. For hardcore Horror fans, these are a no-brainer of a purchase. For those on the less rabid side of the fence, a rental might be more in order.

I will own these because of the wicked new cover art alone. Those are some truly fantastic covers.

Let it be said that Redemption Films usually does a hell of a job bringing some of the older and more obscure Horror titles of the world back to life again, especially on Blu-ray. So, kudos to them.

The rest of the week's offerings are all rental material for us. Boys Against Girls and Silent Hill: Revelation 3D are most likely to draw people to them, while the rest of the movies here are mostly re-releases of older catalogue titles, that will cater to a more select crowd.

That's why they're better off being rentals; you pay a few bucks, and whether you like the movie or not, you're not out all that much. Except for time. You can't really ever get that back.
