Titles I can't believe are unavailable on DVD...

Considering the DVD format is slowly running out of steam, you would think it's because there is nothing left to put out as far as older catalog titles go. Well partly, that's accurate. But there are still a handful of genre titles that I can't believe are completely unavailable. Click on the movie posters for some gorgeous high quality scans courtesy of wrongsideoftheart.com

Believe it or not, this is my favorite adaptation of Clive Barker's works as it has the perfect mix of dark imagery, and blasphemous themes alongside the over the top nudity and gore missing from movies like Nightbreed. Hellraiser is fantastic, but it's SO dark that it usually fails in just simply entertaining me. I own this one on VHS but am scared to play it as I am sure the first time I try it will get eaten, or just disentegrate when the air hits it.



Ok, here is one that I can and have watched about 100 times. Really cartoonish and over the top, it has no gore except a small bit at the end, but it's the only movie in existence that shows exactly what the end result would be of a horny highschool professor that invents an invisibility formula. Absolutely overflowing with high quality tits and ass and it has some very nice casting choices for the girls: Debra Lamb, who if she had stayed with it could have had as big of a scream queen career as Michelle Bauer, Melissa Moore one of my favorites who can only be described as an amazon. Tall, and stacked. Also Shannon Wilsey, who was also the porn actress Savannah who tragically shot and killed herself after a disfiguring car crash in 1994. This is another I own on VHS and I simply treasure it!





Obviously meant to be a cash in on the Jaws craze, this I believe came out close to the release of Jaws 2. The monster is a giant carnivourous worm much like in Tremors, it's slithering grounds is a local beach where it burrows along until it finds sunbathers and then sucks them under the sand. It has the awesome tagline of "Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water--you can't get to it." I remember the movie to be kind of boring, and the main character was a detective type that was kind of annoying but they made up for it by including John Saxon as well.

More to come soon!

It almost seems inappropriate to watch any of these movies on anything other than VHS or Joe Bob Briggs' Drive-In Theater....
And it's a shame they don't make box art like that anymore.
