This week on DVD...04/05/2005

Tuesday is when the new DVDs hit the shelves. Here are some highlights:

The Amityville Horror Giftset: A four disc set featuring the three theatrical Amityville Horror movies (also available separately), including the notorious laughright third film, along with a companion documentary disc of extras. The Canadian DVD vendors, like DVDSoon.com, are selling this for an incredibly low $20.

Deep Evil: More direct to video Lorenzo Lamas monster stuff.

The Ealing Comedy Collection: A set of films by the studio that defined wry British comedy in the '50s and '60s. Includes The Maggie, Passport To Pimlico, A Run For Your Money, The Titfield Thunderbolt and Whisky Galore.

Elektra: Finally, huh?!

Hell Squad: The Jabootu classic Commando Girls under its alternate title, and available for as low as $6!

Mark of the Witch/Brides Wore Blood: More schlock from Image. Brinke Stevens apparently provides a commentary for one of the films.

The Professionals: New two-disc set for a fun Western with an amazing cast: Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin, Woody Strode, Jack Palance, Claudia Cardinale and Robert Ryan.

Silverado: A new two-disc set for this truly enjoyable Western with one of the greatest ensemble casts of the '80s.

Svengali: Remake of the venerable tale with Jodie Foster and Peter O'Toole.
