Published Oct 27, 2010Every Wednesday, we here at Exclaim! gather up our most recently reviewed DVDs. So head on over to the Exclaim! Recently Reviewed section for the newest in DVD picks.
With Halloween just around the corner, we kick things off this week with a couple of scary movies for you to sink your teeth into. First up is perennial horror classic The Exorcist, starring Linda Blair and directed by Willian Friedkin. The 1973 flick is out on Blu-Ray, and along with the original theatrical version, you can check out the Extended Director's Cut and a three-part documentary on the production and legacy of the still very scary film.
If you're looking for a newer take on horror, check out the redo of A Nightmare on Elm Street. The newest in the Elm Street series, the film sticks closer to the original release without the campiness of later sequels.
Tilda Swinton turns in an award-worthy performance in the Luca Guadagnino-directed I Am Love. The film takes after the elegant bourgeois '60s style of filmmaking of Luciano Visconti while unabashedly showing appreciation for the finer things in life.
And it's good to hear that Corey Feldman is finding work these days, check him out in Lost Boys: The Thirst, the sequel to Lost Boys: The Tribe.
Finally, in television releases, we have ABC's The Middle: Season 1, SGU Stargate Universe: The Complete First Season and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 5.
