The Resident

1 bed, 1 bath, 2 bad


Thriller

Rod Lott
It’s a buyer’s market out there, Hilary Swank. There’s no reason you should rent a New York City apartment in which Jeffrey Dean Morgan watches you bathe from his hidey-hole within the walls.

Vampire Circus

A hot ticket for horror fans


Horror

Full disclosure: I find circuses a little macabre.

Burke and Hare

Serial killers turn slapstick for director John Landis’ return.


Comedy

Rod Lott
I have missed seeing the work of John Landis on the big screen. Once a can’t-miss comedy director — “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” “Trading Places,” “An American Werewolf in London” — he hasn’t had a film open wide since the deserved bombing of 1998’s dismal “Blues Brothers 2000.”

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIII

'XXIII' marks the spot for laughs.


Television series

Rod Lott
Fans won't need much convincing (if at all) to plunk down their choice of currency for a purchase of Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIII (that's "23," dummies), because by now, Shout! Factory's rep for packing these boxes with genuine care and irresistible extras is rock-solid.

The Wicker Tree

You can find better 'Wicker' at Pier 1.


Horror

Rod Lott
After helming the 1973 British horror classic The Wicker Man, Robin Hardy didn't follow it up until 1986, and didn't make a third until now. For whatever reason — distract the public from the disaster of Nic Cage's bear-punching remake, perhaps? — he's gone back to the well with an overdue, arguably unnecessary sequel, The Wicker Tree.

Confessions of an Opium Eater / The Face of Fu Manchu / The Vengeance of Fu Manchu

Confucius say ... WTF?!?


Thriller

Rod Lott
For very different reasons, I'll watch any movie with Vincent Price, Bill Murray, Jackie Chan or Carla Gugino. Falling into the first category is 1962's Confessions of an Opium Eater, a rare Price vehicle rare no more, thanks to a DVD debut from Warner Archive.
