Another week has slipped by as January moves toward it’s close… and it’s looking like it’s going to be “Trailer Park Tuesdays” from now on here at the ol’ Litterbox. 😉
This time out… it’s a more eclectic mix of films that have caught my eye, some new… some old. All either already out on DVD or coming soon. So just what new movies is silly lil’ me looking at for potential future viewing fun? Let’s all take a look… 😉
Well…. it’s certainly been a while since I’ve seen anything out of the Philippines, but apparently that’s about to end as yet another of their creepy Pinoy horror films has made it’s way through theaters… and then hopefully now to DVD for my eventual shopping pleasure. “Segunda Mano”, what looks like another assault by the “baby ghosts” of Asia and staring our old favorites Dingdong Dantes, Angelica Panganiban, and Kris Aquino. Pinoy horror, while usually more tame and restrained than other Asian film fare, still manages to do a pretty good job of entertaining me, and I’ve hopes they’ll pull off a winner with this one.
Next up… I’m eagerly awaiting the late February Region 1 DVD release…. with, yes, English subtitles… for the Israeli horror film “Kalavet” aka “Rabies”. I don’t get to see many films from that part of the world… and rarely any of the horror film goodies I thrive on, so this ought to be a real treat!
Another lil’ oddity due out on Region 1 right around the same time is the goofy looking Australian monster movie “El Monstro Del Mar”, a low budget ‘rubber suit” old school monster film that has the look of those goofy films this wee girl watched on Saturday mornings waaaay back when she was just a lil’ kitten. (Although, I do remember most of them being a bit more “edited for content” on TV back then, good thing I’m a “grown-up” Catgirl now!! Hehehehe!!)
Next…. one that almost slipped past me. Never even heard of it until it just turned up during a search for some completely unrelated Trailer. The 2011 French fantasy film “L’Île : Les Naufragés de la Terre Perdue”. Looks a bit like Jules Verne’s “Mysterious Island” meets the TV show “Lost” with…. oh yes, those wacky evil Nazis thrown in as bad guys. Either way… it’s already out on Region 2 DVD… with those English subtitles I love, yay!! Amazon France… look out… here comes Neko and a big bag of shiny Euros for you!!
Hmmmm? Looks like those are the current “picks of the litter” at the moment… but not to worry, Gentle Visitors, I’m always on the lookout for more, so keep your eyes peeled and…. until next time, “Meow, meow for now!!” 😉
