New arrivals for the week of July 23, 2013
Ginger & Rosa
Love and Honor
Trance
Twixt

Greetings everyone,

Although Summer doesn't officially end for another two months, around these parts we are within the last 30 days of peace and quiet before the Big U re-opens the floodgates. How are you doing on getting all your summer projects done? I'm not doing so well. New titles this week include: "Ginger & Rosa" (w/Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, Alessandro Nivola, etc), "Love and Honor" (w/Liam Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer and Aimee Teegarden), "Trance" (w/James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel) and "Twixt" (w/Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning and Ben Chaplin). Also on the new shelf: "Kiss of the Damned", "The Silence" (thriller from German director Baran bo Odar), "Starbuck" and "Welcome to the Punch" (US/UK heist-gone-wrong shoot 'em up). We also got about a dozen more classic horror films/B-movies (some were additions to the "Total Film : 50 Amazing Films You've Probably Never Seen" list) along with "Cutter's Way" -- a 1981 crime/drama starring Jeff Bridges and John Heard (I cannot believe we didn't own this one already!). Lastly, Criterion released Gabriel Axel's "Babette's Feast" (1987). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

I'm the first to admit I don't watch too many horror films -- they tend to scare me. Sure, I've seen the classics ("The Exorcist", "The Shining", "Halloween", "Carrie", etc) but when it comes to the newer stuff ("Cabin in the Woods", "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter", "Hansel & Gretel", etc) you need to talk to someone else. Or, you could just work your way through our Top 100 rented Horror Films list -- it seems to be a pretty good mix of new and classic. So, here they are, the Top 100 Renters for the past 12 months from our Horror Film Section:
1 CABIN IN THE WOODS, THE
2 SHINING, THE
3 ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER
4 HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS
5 SINISTER
6 28 DAYS LATER
7 STRANGERS, THE
8 HALLOWEEN
9 PARANORMAL ACTIVITY
10 HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...
