The Black Dog Newsletter Nov 28-Dec 4 “Hide Your Fleshy Shame Edition!”


As promised, the sweet sweet swag has arrived! We have T’s and Hoodies in one of our most-requested designs – the Black Sabbath Master of Reality font. We also have a new updated version of our famous Restricted Cat T-Shirt design! Quantities are limited on all items so you might want to move quickly! There should also be more Shout Factory Blu Rays on the shelves for sale this week! Check out our Facebook, Twitters and Instagram – black_dog_video for updates!

New Releases!


Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story – Fascinating tale of this Hollywood icon. Not only was she a famously beautiful actor who barely escaped Nazi Germany, but she was also a genius inventor! How cool is that?!


The Little Stranger – From the director of Room (no, not THE Room) and Frank (a Black Dog favourite!) comes this spooky tale of a country doctor who visits a possibly haunted mansion. Yes please!


Papillon – The file on pointless remakes just keeps growing! Sons of Anarchy guy and Freddie Mercury guy are no match for Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman I have to say. But that said, I may check this out as I like wrongly-imprisoned-guy-has-to- escape-from-Devil’s-Island-petitionary movies.


Picnic at Hanging Rock – See above. Mini-series based on the great Peter Weir film from days of yore about some school girls who mysteriously vanished.


Searching – Dad breaks into his 16 year-old daughter’s laptop after she goes missing. I wonder what he finds in there? Every Dad’s worst nightmare is my guess.


Wolf Creek Season 1 – Did not even know that this existed and I loved the Wolf Creek films – especially the first one – so I’m interested to see where this goes. Jon Jarratt’s Mick Taylor is one of the screens best villains. At Cambie, soon to Commercial.

Coming Soon!

Mission Impossible: Fallout
Happytime Murders
Victoria Season 2
Jack Irish Season 2
The Nun
Sharp Objects
What Keeps You Alive

Here’s what the swell new T’s look like!

t shirts

We also have Studio Ghibli socks but they are going fast as well. Hoping to have more before Christmas!


Talk at y’all next week!

The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Nov 21- 27 “So it Begins Edition!”

blu rays
So the Shout Factory Blu Rays have started to roll in. Some sweet titles with amazing art work! Many more are on the way. Hoodies and T-shirts have gone to the printers so they should be here soon. Things are happening! Indeed they are!

New Releases


Better Call Saul Season 4 – The fourth season of Better Call Saul! One of the best shoes on the TV!


Blindspotting – Excellent comedy crime drama that centres on a fella, fresh out of prison, who must reevaluate his relationship with his volatile best friend.


Cold Skin – Cool, or should I say cold, looking horror thriller from the director of Frontier(s) about a dude who takes a job in Antarctica as a weather observer, for some reason, but soon finds out the area is teeming with nasty things that come out at night.


Crazy Rich Asians – Word has it that this romantic comedy is actually quite excellent with many lovely montages of Singaporean street food (I’m in!).


The Forest of Lost Souls – Odd little horror thriller from Portugal about 2 people who meet in a famous spot known for suicides but one of them is not who they seem. Or maybe they are! But probably not. Looks cool.


The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time – Ah Jeez, another tornado full of sharks movie (not a documentary). How many tornadoes full of sharks can there be? This one involves time travel, sharks and, well, tornadoes. Hence the cheeky title.


The Meg – Pretty silly, poorly made, with crappy looking sharks movie about Jason Statham and friends fighting an enormous shark that was thought extinct. As stupid as this film was I have to say I quite enjoyed it for it’s craptacular crappiness.


No Offence Season 2 – Manchester cops going abut their business and getting their cop on! Good stuff.


The Third Murder – Another film (I think like 6 in the last 3 years) from Hirokazu Koreeda! Dude slow down, you’re making Takeshi Miike look bad! This one is a courtroom drama that centres around the murder of a factory president. Of course it”l be great.

Coming Soon!

The Little Stranger
Picnic at Hanging Rock

If that wasn’t enough we’re bringing in some cool Blu Rays from Shout Factory to sell. They should be on the shelves for purchase this week!

New Releases!


Alpha – A boy and his dog tale but this time it’s a cave boy and his wolf tale.


The Death of Louis XIV – King Louis returns from a hunting trip with a pain in his leg and a ridiculous wig and then dies.


Homeland Season 7 – Season 7 of the spy show Homeland.


Juliet, Naked – Nice-looking romantic comedy from the book by Nick Hornby (I think I read this) about a woman (may or may not be naked) who strikes up a correspondence with a washed up singer fella.


Marlina the Murderer in Four Parts – A feminist western from Indonesia finds a recently widowed woman set upon by some evil men. She takes some revenge and then hits the road. Heard plenty of great things about this one.


Mile 22 – Marky Mark is a cop with some big guns who goes to Indonesia (again!) to smuggle out a mysterious cop (Iko Uwais – The Raid movies) who knows something.


Preacher Season 3 – Season 3 of this fine, weird show.


Puzzle – Lovely little romantic drama finds Kelly McDonald finding a love for jigsaw puzzles that leads her to unexpected places.


Pyewacket – A girl inadvertently awakens something nasty in the woods when she tries to invoke the spirit of a witch to kill her mom. Lesson learned. Probably.


Star Trek: Discovery – New Star Trek show! I hear it’s very good!


Succession Season 1 – Excellent drama show that follows a family who are deep into the world of global media. Whatever that may be.

Coming Soon!

The Meg
Crazy Rich Asians
We the Animals

That’s it for this week folks! Stay warm. Stay safe and remember, keep watching.

The Black Dog Newsletter Nov 7-13 “Winter is Probably Coming Edition!”


Daylight is dwindling, the trees are almost bare naked, the sun is so low on the horizon it sears the retinas. This can only mean one thing…movie watching season is upon us (although I think all of the seasons are movie watching season)! I’m happy that we’re still here and still able to help you through these dark, dank, desperate months. You are the wind beneath our wings.

New Releases!


BlackKkKlansman – Latest (and one of the best) flicks from Spike Lee finds a black cop infiltrating the KKK in the 1970’s. And it’s a true story! DVDs are on the shelf, Blu Rays should be here by Friday.


Christopher Robin – Ewan McGregor stars in yet another tale of the famed author of Winnie the Pooh. A nice Disney family film for the family.


Incredibles 2 – Sequel to one of Pixar’s best animated flicks. I expect it’s more of the same. Which is OK by me.


Killing Eve – Excellent TV show about the hunt for an assassin. Stars the always great Sandra Oh. Should be on the shelves later this week.


Mandy – Awesome psychedelic, phantasmagorical violent revenge flick that will stomp your brains into another dimension! Nic Cage is a nice guy seeking revenge from the gross drug-fueled cult that killed his wife. Not for all tastes but definitely mine. Loved it.


Sorry to Bother You – Odd alternate reality comedy finds a black telemarketer disguising his voice so he sounds more “white” and becomes a big success. Plus other stuff! Should be on the shelves later this week.


Teen Titans Go! To the Movies! – Don’t know much about whatever this may be. Teenage superheroes? And they go to the movies? For kids? Reviews say it’s actually very good. So there ya go.

Coming Soon!

Juliet, Naked
The Meg
Succession Season 1
Star Trek Discovery: Season 1
Death of Louis XIV
Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

That’s it for this week folks. If you need some swell recommendations, click HERE. If you need to listen to our podcast, click HERE. See you soon!

The Black Dog Newsletter: Oct 31-Nov 6 – “Happy Halloween Edition!”


Happy Halloween everybody! Best day of the year! And with it comes the conclusion of our 31 Days of Halloween movie extravaganza. Check out the full list here. And if that’s not enough scary things, here’s a list of our favourite horror films we put together a couple of years ago.

But that’s not all! There’s a nice special Halloween edition of our podcast ready to scare you into fits of laughter up and ready! Deadly Friend! Listen up.

New Releases


Americans Season 6 – Final Season of this outstanding spy show. Will they be found out? Will the daughter be a spy? The son? What about the FBI neighbour? Or the weirdo priest? What’s gonna happen?!!


Dark Money – Intense and important doc chronicling how that bastion of democracy, the good ole US of A, sold their elections to the highest bidder with the stupid Citizens Untied Supreme Court ruling back in 2010. What a joke. A sad sad joke.


Destination Wedding – Canoe and Winona are two miserable miscreants who attend the same wedding and, guess what, fall for each other. Might be OK.


I Think We’re Alone Now – After the apocalypse a loner becomes infatuated with 80’s singer Tiffany and sets out to meet her. Wait, I may be confusing the documentary of the same name with this movie about a loner who enjoys the post-apocalyptic scene until someone else (not necessarily Tiffany) shows up.


Mara – Horror movie about a criminal psychologist investigating the death of a guy who was strangled in his sleep. Was it his wife or some sort of otherworldly demon?!


Reprisal – A bank teller, haunted by a robbery gone wrong, hooks up with straight-to-DVD hero Bruce Willis to exact revenge on the bank robber guy.


Scorpion King: Book of Souls – Sword and sandals sand-fest that finds a guy named Scorpion King teaming up with the female warrior Tala to find the Book of Souls. Why is always Book of Souls or Book of the Dead? Why is it never Book of Muffins or Book of Kittens and Puppies that folks seek?


7 Sisters aka What Happened to Monday – Sci-fi mind-bender finds 7 identical sisters (all played by Noomi Repace) trying to find out what happened to one of the Noomi Repaces (they’re named after the days of the week) in a future where folks can only have one child.


Slender Man – Horror film about that slim internet fellow who was scaring all the kids for a short period of time a couple of years ago.


Spy Who Dumped Me – Comedy that finds Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon embroiled in some hilarious espionage when they find out one of their ex-boyfriends was actually a spy!


Woman in White – A fine BBC adaptation of the famous story by Wilkie Collins about a mysterious, well, woman in white. There ya go.

Coming Soon!

Incredibles 2
Sorry to Bother You
Christopher Robin
Killing Eve
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

That’s it for this week, my lovelies. Have a fun and safe Halloween!
