Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment have announced the UK release of Midgets vs. Mascots, a hilarious shockumentary that has been described as Borat-meets-Jackass, which sees five little people and five mascots battle for one million dollars through 30 ridiculous competitions, including how many insults it takes to get punched in a bar, who can drink a gallon of fluid the fastest and who can wrestle a live alligator.
Starring Gary Coleman (Diff’rent Strokes) in his last ever role, Jason Mewes (Clerks, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back), Jordan Prentice (Harold and Kumar, American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile, In Bruges), Rick Howland (Citizen Duane, Murdoch Mysteries), NBA star Scottie Pippen and adult cinema’s number one U.S star Ron Jeremy (The Boondock Saints, »
This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Salt Salt barrels forward at a relentless pace, and stops only for the most perfunctory of emotional beats. You know they're emotional beats because somber music plays in the background while characters gaze longingly at each other. 30 seconds of that, and it's back to more running, car hopping and violently-inflicted bodily injury. None of the action is especially impressive or inspired, but what it lacks in polish it makes up for in sheer volume. The mystery of Evelyn Salt is meant to keep the audience on their toes as the action unfolds, but it's all so ludicrous and predictable; if there is a compelling mystery at the core of Salt, it's learning just how much casual ass-kickery »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. The Disappearance Of Alice Creed The Disappearance of Alice Creed opens with two men prepping for what we can only assume—given the title of the film (despite any revelations about its meaning that may come later)—is a kidnapping. We assume correctly. They pull a girl into a van, tie her to a bed, strip her of all her clothes, snap photos of her, and put new clothes on her. All of this takes places without any dialogue, or any understanding of who these people are, how they know each other, or what their motivations are. The less you know about what happens from that point forward, the better. This is the sort of assured, smartly »

It’s that time of year again for a new Saw film. Whether you love or hate this torture porn franchise, it has been a staple in the multiplexes for the last six years. Dread Central had the opportunity to talk to Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), who plays Bobby Dagen, a self-help guru and Jigsaw survivor with a few deadly secrets of his own.
Flanery was careful not to reveal any spoilers during the interview. He couldn’t even talk about Tobin Bell and if he’d make his final appearance in this 3D opus (which he totally does).
Flanery’s casting process was not (ahem) torturous at all. They had him audition on tape and said ‘Come on up to Toronto, and let’s make a scary movie.’ Nailing the role was a pretty big deal for him because it was the first time he’d been in anything this “big, »

Costas Mandylor says fans are in for their usual horrific treat - but with an added dimension of terror - when the next instalment of Saw comes out in 3D at the end of this month.
The Aussie actor, who plays Mark Hoffman in the hugely successful franchise, described filming the seventh and purportedly final movie as "fun as usual!"
"It was a little bit different because of the 3D aspect," he explained, speaking on the red carpet in Los Angeles at the Scream Awards 2010.
"It's a lot of work for the guys that do the lighting and that, but everybody gets killed as usual," he laughed.
Costas says his personal horror favourite is one of the genre's classics.
He said: "I've always been in love with The Exorcist because it was just weird and freaky with the little girl, the devil voice and spewing blood. But the world has »

Ricky is having a tough day, the bullet with his name on it is quite literally staring him in the face. Structured as a flashback of his life right at the second of final judgment, for (ostensibly) our entertainment, the writer of cult festival hit Sexykiller, Paco Cabezas, blows up his award winning short into a lengthy feature of the same name: Neon Flesh. In the world of Carne de Neón you are either climbing the rungs of the sex business (It's hard out there for a wannabe pimp) or being gobbled up by it. There are cops and John's to make life difficult or lucrative, but it is the spectacularly screwed-up street folks that are on display here either for a stab at gangster coolness or goofy sight gags. Let us get this out of the way, I will probably not see a worse or more disappointing film in 2010 than Carne de Neón. »
- The show eased into the season with a relatively simple A-story: Michael has hired his nephew Luke ("I love cinema -- my two favorite movies are 'Citizen Kane' and 'The Boondock Saints'"), who is horrible at his job and doesn't care because he fears no consequences. It led to some fine talking heads (Darryl: "I don't know how we're gonna get out of Afghanistan I hate the new assistant." Andy: "He calls me Nard-Man. I'm the Nard-Dog. Nard-Man is my father") and a climax that had Michael spanking Luke, the staff re-enacting it and Michael facing either A) six counseling sessions with Toby or B) getting fired. »
The first (maybe) in what will undoubtedly be a long string of big-budget punishments for the popularity of Lost, NBC‘s The Event is filled to bursting with misdirection, pseudo-camp drama, and the kind of “shockers” that not only force your brain to include the cover track “Dun Dun Dunnnnnn”s, but are difficult describe outside the realm of nonsensical soundbites and liberal repetition of “really”s.
Following the life of random nobody Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), the President of the United States (Blair Underwood), and everyone in-between, the show takes viewers on a wild ride investigation into an incredible cover-up, and the mysterious detainees who are apparently connected with same.
Jumping around in time, for no reason apart from the fact that it is “all clever and whatnot,” we watch as Sean sort of tries to hijack a plane, then move back and forth between his less-than-stellar efforts to talk to the pilot, »

In partnership with the latest edition of The Rough Guide To Cult Movies, which you should check out when you get a chance, because it’s a great work, 20th Century Fox and MGM recently kicked out a slew of cult classics on Blu-Ray.
Check out the full list of titles, because these are the sorts of titles you want to pick up, and many of them benefit greatly from the Blu-Ray upgrade. This is also a good list to double-check for things you aren’t familiar with, because if it’s coming up on the cult classic list, it’s probably there for a reason. Especially of note are titles like Kissing Jessica Stein, an underappreciated gem that everyone should give a second look.
Some are so bad they’re good, some are the icons of their genres, and others are just a whole lot of fun; the studio’s Cult Classics includes exploitative, »

As you probably know (if you follow my endless deluge of tweets), I'm a huge fan of the cat. Wild ones, ancient ones, domesticated ones, fictional ones. I named my present puss Jones (see above), I've rescued more than a few strays, and I always (always) tap on the kitten cages at pet stores. Call it a Hellboy Complex if you like, but this cynical, sarcastic wise-ass generally morphs into a child when he crosses paths with a kitty cat. Two is even worse, and if one's a little baby kitten ... forget it. I'm mush. For years I've heard the silly dismissals of cats (they're sneaky, they're cold, etc.) and watched as they became easy victims in movies involving mad scientists, serial killers, and heroic dogs. But no more. The cat is presently the most popular pet on the planet ... things must change! (Rowr!)

When it comes to popular culture, gay and bisexual characters are usually required to be sensitive and non-threatening. But every now and again, one will come along who either combines sensitivity with toughness, or who shirks it completely and doesn't take guff from anyone as he kicks some serious ass.
Here are just a few of our favorite out and proud gay badasses. And what is it about tough guys that is so appealing? Is it that we have a subconscious need to feel protected, and they make us feel safe? Or is it more Freudian, and we're attracted to the powerful pistols they pack?
Naah! These guys just look cool!

From HBO's True Blood, Russell (Denis O'Hare) is our favorite genteel ... "antique dealer." He has a younger lover named Talbot, and the two of them throw fancy dinner parties and we're sure they have friends named Muffy and Blaine. »
