Blu-ray & DVD: The Digital Dread Report for 3/8

*Check out our other Release Date Pages: Blu-ray & DVD, Theatrical, VOD, TV.

A deaf gang terrorizes the Ukraine; a different spin on the Frankenstein legend; and a creepy, creepy movie about necrophilia... This is The Digital Dread Report for 3/8!

It's a big week as far as the number of titles being released goes (especially on DVD), but it's a rather small weekas far as quality titles go. There are a few though...

"A deaf teenager enters a specialized boarding school where, to survive, he becomes part of a wild organization - the tribe. His love for one of the concubines will unwillingly lead him to break all the unwritten rules within the Tribe's hierarchy."

The Tribe is a great Arthouse Film that offers Horror fans plenty of realistic brutality, but not much in the way of story or character development. It's not a particularly enjoyable movie either, but it is one that makes a statement, and does so in a very powerful, bold, and unique way.

It won't be for everybody, and in fact, it may not even be for most people, but if you like experimental Arthouse movies that do something completely different from the norm, then it might just be for you.

Check our review below for the full scoop.

"Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today."

Victor  Frankenstein didn't do so well when it was released, but now that it's on home video, we'll probably give it a chance. We really like James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, so maybe they'll make it watchable.

Special Features:
  • Deleted Scenes – Blu-ray Exclusive.
  • The Making of Victor Frankenstein.
  • Galleries – Production Design, Production Photography and Behind-The-Scenes.
  • Theatrical trailer.

"Anna Fritz, a beautiful Spanish actress and one of the most desired women in the world, has suddenly died. Her body is transferred to a city morgue where a withdrawn young orderly, Pau, becomes fascinated with her lifeless cadaver. When Pau sends a picture of the dead celebrity to his two friends, they show up at the morgue for a glimpse of the beautiful starlet. As the whiskey bottles and coke packets empty, the three friends decide this is an opportunity they can't pass up to get up close and personal with the corpse of Anna Fritz."

Dark, disturbing, uncomfortable, and heinous, The Corpse of Anna Fritz is a short Thriller that packs a lot of punch. It twists and turns, and in the end it became something more than what we thought it would be, and that's a good thing.

Check out our review below for the full scoop.

There's not much doing down here in the bottom of the order unless you're a big fan of Direct-To-DVD B-Movies, but there are a few notable titles to be had...

  • Scream Factory's releases of Species 2 & Species 3&4 are worth a look to us, especially because we love cheesy Sci-Fi movies. 
  • Howard the Duck is what it is, and even though it's not our thing, there are a ton of people out there who have been waiting for it to hit Blu-ray. Have at it, folks. 

On the DVD Front this week...

  • The I Spit on Your Grave Triple Feature is a solid buy, for three decent movies. 
  • The Absent and Terminus look interesting. 
  • And everything else, as always, is a crap-shoot.
