Aisle Seat 10-31: Halloween Edition! Kino Lorber, Warner Archive Wrap
Posted By Andy Dursin 10/30/2023 - 10:00 PM
Kino Lorber’s October bag of treats extends from catalog revisits to 4K UHD premieres, including the 4K debut of CUJO (93 mins., 1983, R), one of the many Stephen King adaptations that filled theaters in the 1980s. Helmed by journeyman director Lewis Teague, “Cujo” is a tight, gritty little film that – atypical for the author – eschews the supernatural but still boasts a suitably unpleasant but not unsatisfying adaptation that ranks, especially in hindsight, as one of the better King flicks from an era when it seemed a new movie based on one of his works was coming to theaters every few months.

Aisle Seat 10-24: Halloween Frights, A BRONX TALE Remastered
Posted By Andy Dursin 10/23/2023 - 10:00 PM
If you’re looking for something a little offbeat this Halloween season, chances are you’ve never seen ARNOLD (95 mins., 1973, PG), which is out this month from Vinegar Syndrome on Blu-Ray. Making its high-def debut (its last home video appearance came via a “Lightning Video” VHS release in the ‘80s), “Arnold” is a weird time capsule – a black comedy a la “The Old Dark House” with Stella Stevens essaying the mistress of a wealthy, recently deceased old man who stands to inherit his estate…so long, after marrying “Lord Dwellyn” at his funeral, she lives in the mansion alongside his corpse. One that seems to be very much alive at that!
