Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs, and on more distant horizons…
Trailers of new release movies are generally available at the official site links.
NEW ON DVD:
Where’s Poppa? (1970): A (then) cutting edge black comedy in which a New York lawyer falls in love and dreams of getting rid of his senile mother (Ruth Gordon). Fans are fond of using words like “insane” and “deranged” to describe this outrageous trendsetting exercise in bad taste. Buy Where’s Poppa?
NEW ON BLU-RAY:
The Return of the Living Dead (1985): Zombies invade Louisville, KY, preying on nearby horny teenagers, in this prototypical zomcom and nostalgic video store favorite. Shout! Factory puts out a 2-Blu Ray Collector’s Edition with an absurd amount of special features to saturate any fan’s desires for zombie carnage. Buy Return of the Living Dead [Collector’s Edition Blu-ray].
Where’s Poppa? (1970): See description in DVD above. Buy Where’s Poppa? [Blu-ray].
