Robert Thorne descends into the bush in The Colombian Connection.

Robert Thorne (Poker Run) and the ever-jumpy Tom Sizemore (Red Planet) star in the 2011 retro-styled action-thriller movie The Colombian Connection.

It all kicks off when former cop Jack Hooks (Thorne) is framed by his corrupt partner, Frank Rossi (Sizemore), and sentenced to jail for a drug crime he didn’t commit. When the DEA offers an early release deal, he embarks on a do-or-die mission to bring down his former partner’s drug trade. Plunging into the underworld of marijuana smuggling, he makes one big run through the narrow Yucatan channel flowing between Cuba and Mexico and into the heart of a violent Colombian drug ring led by Carlos Huerta (David Castro, The Lincoln Lawyer). The ruthless drug lord is Rossi’s source of supply and Hook’s ultimate target … that is,

DVD Review: Devil Riders

Devil Riders

Stars: Robert Thorne, Jasmine Waltz, Bertie Higgins, J.D. Rudometkin, Debra Hopkins, Jay Wisell, Ryan Caldwell | Written by Bertie Higgins, Julian Higgins, Larry Madill | Directed by Julian Higgins

Originally released in the Us in 2009 under the less sensationalist title of Poker Run, Devil Riders is the latest in a long line of films featuring ordinary members of the public put into extraordinary situations by more “nefarious” members of society – with definite shades of The Hills Have Eyes, Race With the Devil and even (at a stretch) Cape Fear, this is a case of survival horror flick meets Easy Rider.

Devil Riders follows Robert and Allen, two suburbanites who, tired of the everyday rat race, decide it would be cool to buy motorbikes and hit the open road with their wives on a “poker run” on Route 66, Making the mistake of looking for a cheap deal the duo buy

DVD Releases: Dec. 1, 2009: Wield a Knife of Ice by the Deadline Set by the Little Red Devil

A new month; a new batch of DVDs and Blu-rays to consider. We've used the phrase "mixed bag" a few times before this year, but never has it been more apropos than with regard to those discs that are being released on December 1st, 2009!

A new Evil Dead is on its way -- not that anyone can figure out why. Gremlins is hitting Blu-ray as is the new Terminator flick. And the Brittany Murphy-starrer Deadline, which is better than it has any business being, drops along with a few other indies like Deader Country, Poker Run, and Sins of the Father.

Little Red Devil with Daniel Baldwin and Dee Wallace definitely sounds intriguing, but for my money, the hand's down pick of the week is 1972's Knife of Ice, a rare Italian giallo from Umberto Lenzi starring the gorgeous and glamorous Carroll Baker.

Happy shopping!
