The Candy Snatchers (DVD)
No, this is not a kid's movie. It is a dark 70s exploitation film that belies its B-movie origins in many ways, now available on DVD with some great bonus materials.
Cannibal Girls (DVD)
One of comedy director Ivan Reitman's rearliest films, this movie is a wonderful throwback into the 70s. filled with gimmicks, blood and humor, it is a film that is as campy as they get.
Chain Letter (Blu-Ray)
John Carpenter checked out this torture porn horror film but soon regretted the decision as this film is as bad and derivative as they come.
City Island (Blu-Ray)
Overlooked and never-heard-of probably describes this film best, but as John Carpenter found out, it is a really intriguing and well put together movie, actually.

'Crash' is the latest release from Lions Gate and John Carpenter took a close look at the DVD. Not to be confused with the David Cronenberg film, this is an entirely different experience with a tight script and an exciting plot. Read all about it in his in-depth review
The Crazies (DVD)
A new take on George A. Romero's 1973 infection thriller, this remake delivers shocks in spades and makes for a great showing.
Daughters of Darkness (Blu-Ray)
As Blue Underground is releasing another cult class in high definition, John Carpenter took the time to check it out in detail. Clearly, it is not a film to everyone's taste but aficionados will find a lot of things to love here.
Dead And Breakfast (DVD)
Another cool indie film from Anchor Bay, this movie is highly entertaining despite a bit of an identity crisis. It doesn't seem to know whether it wants to be a horror film, a comedy or a musical... and yet, it is sheer fun.
Dead And Breakfast (UMD)
After its successful launch onto DVD, this dark and funny, independent horror comedy is also avilable on a UMD disc for your PSP. Great stuff for fans of the film.

Featuring a great cast, this thriller by new director Jake Goldberger has all the ingredients for a great film. John Carpenter took a closer look to see how it turned out in the end.
Elf (UMD)
Jan Favreau's take on the Christmas family genre features Will Ferrell as a human among elves. It is a funny story with great moments, but also not entirely without flaws.
Eric Idle's Personal Best (DVD)
From A&E Home Video's line of Monty Python releases comes 'Eric Idle's Personal Best'. A collection of sketches, skits and episodes from throughout the years, all highlighting Eric's incredible talents. John Carpenter took a close look for you.
