Dead Alive [Blu-ray]

Peter Jackson proves that if gory is funny, then excessive gory is downright hysterical. As our hapless hero wades through an ankle-deep puddle of blood and entrails, brandishing a lawnmower like a portable Cuisinart at the climax of this zombie-fest, you’ll either be screaming with laughter or fleeing in disgust. Timothy Balme stars as the shy mama’s boy Lionel, whose controlling shrew of a mother (Elizabeth Moody) starts rotting away, literally, with a vague supernatural disease. Mother dies but refuses to stay down, rising as a flesh-eating zombie infecting everyone she bites. Lionel tries to hide her in the basement, but the victims keep piling up and finally break out when Lionel’s blackmailing uncle (a grotesque, leering Ian Watkin) throws a party in the house. It’s snack time as the guests become undead hors d’oeuvres and rise again as hungry soldiers of the new zombie army marching on Lionel and his girl Pacquita (the lovely Diana Penalver). New Zealand goremeister Jackson pulls out all stops in this truly outrageous sanguinary comedy, from gross-out gags of oozing puss and rotting body parts at a formal dinner to slapstick antics as Lionel tries to keep his flesh-hungry mother sedated during the funeral to the final Freudian showdown between a now-monstrous mother and the newly liberated Lionel. If you like your horror with a sense of humor or your comedy with gristle, then wade through this taboo-busting bucket of blood. –Sean Axmaker

Dracula: The Vampire and the Voivode

Produced in association with the Transylvanian Society of Dracula, this is the first film ever to reveal the true story of Bram Stoker and his legendary gothic creation Dracula, the most widely read novel in the history of mankind, second only to the Bible in sales.

Few mythic figures have ever captured the imagination, nor been as enduringly popular, as Dracula, made famous in Bram Stoker’s 1897 gothic novel and sparking the earliest pop culture fascination with vampire folklore.

But much confusion surrounds Count Dracula, the fictional vampire, and Vlad Tepes (The Impaler) Draculea III (1431-1476), the voivode, Old Slavonic, meaning “one who leads warriors.” A real-life Royal, many believe that Vlad III’s violent, six-year rule of Romania and now-familiar surname inspired the famed, fanged figure.

Separating fact from fiction, “Dracula: The Vampire and the Voivode” – filmed in Transylvania, Whitby, London and Dublin – was produced in association with the Transylvanian Society of Dracula and features interviews with the leading experts on the subject.

Sink your teeth into this intriguing examination of one of the world’s most infamous legends with an unprecedented look at: visits to Stoker’s hometown of Dublin and his (and Dracula’s) London haunts; a vivid account of the real-life count’s arrival in the seaside town of Yorkshire; Vlad III’s reign of terror; debunking the association between any Dracula (a common surname in the former countries of Yugoslavia) and the iconic Castle Bran; retracing Vlad III and Count Dracula’s footsteps through Romania; and a look at how Stoker (who never visited Transylvania) left an indelible impression of Romania on the world.

Higanjima: Escape From Vampire Island (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

Akira and his ragtag group of teenage friends enter a world of danger and action when they land on the shores of Higanjima, an uncharted island that’s overrun by vampires.

After learning that his missing brother might be somewhere on the island, Akira leads his friends on a chilling adventure that takes them from Higanjima’s highest volcanic peaks into the subterranean chambers of the island’s ancient ruins. They’ll face entire villages of sword-wielding vampires while racing to stay a step ahead of winged she-beasts and giant gargoyles. Worst of all, the gang will encounter the deadly master of the island’s monsters: the pale, blood-sucking freak show known as Miyabi. If the devilishly cruel Miyabi gets his way, none of the young heroes will live to see Akira’s brother – or the mainland – ever again.

Jackie Brown [Blu-ray]

The curiosity of Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown is Robert Forster’s worldly wise bail bondsman Max Cherry, the most alive character in this adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s Rum Punch. The Academy Awards saw it the same way, giving Forster the film’s only nomination. The film is more “rum” than “punch” and will certainly disappoint those who are looking for Tarantino’s trademark style. This movie is a slow, decaffeinated story of six characters glued to a half million dollars brought illegally into the country. The money belongs to Ordell (Samuel L. Jackson), a gunrunner just bright enough to control his universe and do his own dirty work. His just-paroled friend–a loose term with Ordell–Louis (Robert De Niro) is just taking up space and could be interested in the money. However, his loyalties are in question between his old partner and Ordell’s doped-up girl (Bridget Fonda). Certainly Fed Ray Nicolette (Michael Keaton) wants to arrest Ordell with the illegal money. The key is the title character, a late-40s-ish flight attendant (Pam Grier) who can pull her own weight and soon has both sides believing she’s working for them. The end result is rarely in doubt, and what is left is two hours of Tarantino’s expert dialogue as he moves his characters around town.

Tarantino changed the race of Jackie and Ordell, a move that means little except that it allows Tarantino to heap on black culture and language, something he has a gift and passion for. He said this film is for an older audience although the language and drug use may put them off. The film is not a salute to Grier’s blaxploitation films beyond the musical score. Unexpectedly the most fascinating scenes are between Grier and Forster: two neo-stars glowing in the limelight of their first major Hollywood film after decades of work. –Doug Thomas
