I know all the industry minds are on Telluride and Toronto, but I wanted to give a shout out to three amazing DVD releases coming this fall for all the people that can't be in Canada with us.
The first is, of course, the home viewing release of Mark Region's hotly debated After Last Season. Once believed to be an internet prank, this too stilted to be true trailer turned out to be all the movie its promos promised. But if you're not like me and don't want to do crazy things like drive thirteen hours just to check if this is a joke, simply visit here to order to a copy to be shipped directly to the comfort of your own home. They've cut a new trailer for the DVD release, which I believe is narrated by Region himself.
The second is the long-awaited American DVD issue of the 1987 underground, samurai splatterfest, Ambush at Blood Trail Gate. The guys at Shinobi Splat were good enough to present the US with a brand new, digitally remastered version of the film, complete with an English Language track that features none other than Bruce Campbell. Check out this awesome trailer:
And last, but definitely not least, is the latest from action superstar, Dolph Lundgren. Holy shit! This promises to be hilarious. The trailer and teaser say it all. (Watch them in that order.)
