New Releases


Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar – Nice, funny comedy (ain’t those the best kind?!) finds Barb and Star leaving home for the first time and going to the title location where they get mixed up in all kinds of hi-jinks!

Switchblade Sisters – I love this crazy exploitation gang nonsense from the 70’s. We did a podcast for this one a while back. This is Arrow’s awesome new Blu Ray release.


The Wanting Mare – Strange, but cool, sounding fantasy film about a fictional town who sells special horses to another fictional town. Other stuff happens as well.

We’re still (always) accepting donations of DVDs and Blu Rays! We’re also in the market to pay for some selected items (or offer in-store credit). So dig out that old collection of physical media that’s cluttering up your place , blow off the dust and drop ’em off at the shop!

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Keep watching.
