Nakaimo – My Sister Is Among Them!
Amazon
Comments Fanservice heavy romantic-comedy anime with the premise that the main character, a high school student whose father has recently passed away, must propose to and be accepted by a girl who is Miryuin Private Academy – with the catch that his long-lost sister (who he has never met and does not have a picture of) is among the student body.

Amazon
Onibaba (Criterion Collection)
Amazon
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Amazon
Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak
Amazon
Comments Alex: Starring the late Tawney Kitaen. This film is a remarkably gonzo (but also pervy – as it’s directed by Just Jaeken) pulp film. That said, there’s a Blu-Ray release already out, so I’d recommend getting that instead, if you’re going to pick this up.

Relic

Comments Blaine: I think there’s an error in the listings. The cover clearly has Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, strongly implying that this is the 1953 version, but the cast list on Amazon includes Molly Ringwald and Harry Dean Stanton, only one of whom was actually alive in 1953.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “I’m going with Halloween 3 in 4K, if you have the means to play 4K Blu-Rays, as I think it’s a very underrated horror film. Otherwise, I recommend picking up the Irresponsible Captain Tylor TV series on Blu-Ray – I’d put it among the top science fiction anime series of all time.” Blaine says, “if you have 4K capability, the Universal Monster Horror collection is the way to go. If you don’t, go with the Audrey Hepburn collection.”

  1. Elvira’s Haunted Hills is set in … Dracula? Frankenstein? Something like that, but it’s all an excuse for burlesque, but with a PG-13 rating. With some Riff Raff as the main antagonist…

  2. visionary_coward says:

    she’s got HUUUUGE… tracts of land
