Published Oct 21, 2009October is quickly passing us by and we're already starting to gear up for Halloween, which makes this the perfect time to slow down and chill out with some movies. So, whether you're just needing a quiet night at home or need something to watch as you're prepping your costume, Exclaim! has all the latest DVD reviews to help guide your more relaxed October nights.
If you have been caught by the Halloween bug, Tales from the Darkside: The Second Season would be the perfect companion as you plan for the big night. Stephen King and George Romero are just two of the legendary horror writers who did episodes in this season, helping solidify it in time as a fun scary series.
A scarier story might come from the documentary The End of the Line, which warns us of Earth's decreasing supply of edible fish. Blood on the Flat Track is another documentary, this time showcasing the hard-hitting world of roller derby. Fans of the feature film Whip It can get the real inside look at these women on wheels.
The horribly named Medicine for Melancholy doesn't fair too well on the screen with its overly artsy story, while director Atom Egoyan does a much better job as he returns to his more structurally complex work with Adoration.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Blu-ray release of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Matt Stone and Trey Parker's crude humour still stands the test of time ten years later and shows how this movie really turned the series into the critical success it is today.
