This week on DVD [04/19/05]....

First, a note. I had previously mentioned the release of BLUE DEMON VS. EL PODER SATANICO and SANTO CONTRA LOS HOMBRES INFERNALES, new DVDs put out by Ground Zero Entertainment. To my consternation, these don't include English subtitles, or even an English dub. So be warned. Other such titles include CASTILLO DE LAS MOMIAS DE GUANAJUATO, INCREDIBLE PROFESSOR ZOVEK and TRIUNFO DE LOS CAMPEONES JUSTICIEROS. Given how the lack of subtitles severely limits the discs' commercial appeal, I find the lack of them bewildering.

Hitting shelves today:

CARMEN ELECTRA’S AEROBIC STRIPTEASE GIFT SET (Paramount) Box set includes AEROBIC STRIPTEASE, ADVANCED AEROBIC STRIPTEASE, FIT TO STRIP and LAP DANCE & HIP_HOP.

The ladies (?) will presumably enjoy the release of six telefilm adaptations of romance author Danielle Steel's work. The titles can be found at dvdpricesearch.com by searching under 'Danielle Steel.' If anyone knows if any of these are especially campy, please let me know.

Film buffs will welcome the Errol Flynn: Signature Collection, including Captain Blood, They Died With Their Boots On, The Sea Hawk, Dodge City, The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, and many extras, including a spare disc with documentaries and such. Six movies for as low as $40. Good deal.

HANZO THE RAZOR Boxed Set (Home Vision) A trilogy of wild early ‘70s samurai thrillers based on manga by Kazuo Koike (LONE WOLF & CUB), starring Shintaro “Zatoichi” Katsu as a righteous detective in old Tokyo who swings a mighty weapon in the name of justice. Includes SWORD OF JUSTICE, THE SNARE and WHO’S GOT THE GOLD?.

The incredibly beautiful martial arts masterpiece House of Flying Daggers hits the market with a reportedly loaded disc.

Killer Creatures: Another cheapie box set including such public domain perennials as Blood Creatures (aka Horror of the Monsters), Werewolf in a Girl's Dormatory (aka Lycanthropus), A Bucket of Blood, The Giant Gila Monster, The Wasp Woman, Attack of the Giant Leeches, Beast from Haunted Cave, The Brain that wouldn't Die, Tormented and Lady Frankenstein. The transfers probably suck, and most of the film are availabe in much better stand alone editions, but the set is available for around $17 on the 'Net, so as long as you know what you're getting...

The 1959 musical (!) verison of the Li'l Abner comic strip arrives, to the delight of curio fans.

Miracles: The Complete Series, collects the short lived Skeech Ulrich series for those who can't get enough of the recent and similar Revelations program.

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 Collection Volume 7 (Rhino) KILLER SHREWS, HERCULES UNCHAINED, HERCULES AGAINST THE MOON MEN and PRINCE OF SPACE, plus some shorts.

The low-budget but highly regarded time travel flick Primer seems a likely choice for sci-fi enthusiasts.

Riding the Bullet is the latest Stephen King adaptations, now so numerous you can hardly keep track of them all.

Subhuman is this weeks' DTV schlock.
