New DVD & Blu-Ray Releases
Just when you thought it was safe to go bird watching, Southern California is under aerial assault by dive-bombing prehistoric eagles and vultures from the La Brea Tar Pits. Can indie filmmaker Bill, would-be actress Gloria, and original "Birdemic" survivors Rod and Nathalie escape the avian attack...to say nothing of the giant jellyfish, cavemen, and zombies? James Nguyen's fine feathered follow-up to his 2008 cult fave stars Chelsea Turnbo, Whitney Moore, Thomas Favaloro, Alan Bagh. 84 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1.
Ever wonder where Leatherface got his chainsaw? This prequel to the 2003 remake of the '70s horror classic finds the disfigured and unemployed meat-packing laborer (Andrew Bryniarski) recruited into a new "family business" by his sadistic uncle (R. Lee Ermey). The horror begins when two Vietnam-bound teens and their girlfriends get stranded near the cannibal clan's charnel house. Jordana Brewster, Matthew Bomer also star. 91 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
