Web and flow

It’s a fact of life: People change. This maxim proves especially accurate in the music business — and not always in a good way.

Darkman

Who is Darkman? It's time you knew.


Action

Rod Lott
Prior to his Spider-Man trilogy, director Sam Raimi cut his superhero-movie teeth on 1990's Darkman, a character of his own creation. Although it's clearly not the most polished of his works, the summer sleeper plays even better as the years tick by. Look no further than Shout! Factory's colorful re-release on Blu-ray.

The Last Days on Mars

Mars needs Lysol.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
With his good looks, Liev Schreiber (TV's Ray Donovan) seems born to play an astronaut. In Magnet Releasing's The Last Days on Mars, he finally gets the chance. As chief systems officer Vincent Campbell, he's part of Aurora's six-month mission on the red planet with only 19 hours left to go before heading home. What could go wrong?

Drill, baby, drill!

Homefront

Home is where the Stath is.


Action

Rod Lott
From screenwriter Sylvester Stallone comes Homefront, at one time developed as a Rambo sequel, but somewhere along the way handed off as a vehicle for fellow Expendable Jason Statham.

Machine Head

Spring break is broken.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Once saddled with the unimaginative-but-accurate title of Spring Break Killer, the indie thriller Machine Head has several things going for it: actual direction, a location with built-in production value, a solid handle on ambience, a terrific soundtrack and it's not based on the intolerable, same-named Bush song, so omnipresent on FM radio in the mid-'90s.

In Fear

Fear itself.


Thriller

Rod Lott
In Fear is a British take on that hoary Hollywood premise of two 20-somethings menaced by a third. Although the film is largely improvised, viewers will notice only one new thing about it: The hipsters at its center are en route to a music festival. Had Anchor Bay Entertainment wished to exploit that fact for the Blu-ray release, it could have retitled the film Bonnarubes, Coach-hella or Glastonburied.

Beneath

Just when you thought it was safe ...


Horror

Rod Lott
Six newly graduated high schoolers get together for one last shebang, which goes sour. You've seen that before, but not from indie director Larry Fessenden.
