"Masters of Horror" Begins its March to DVD

Why do I continue to be naive when it comes to the soul-less machine that churns out DVDs of my favorite films? I always want to believe that it has my best interests at heart, that it's constantly trying to find ways to bring me more of what I want in a package I can get behind and with a price tag I can live with. Alas, I've been deceived again.

Oh, "Masters of Horror" will have its day on DVD, it's just that part of me expected an extravagant box set containing all thirteen of the first season's films (packed to the jowls with extras, and let's have it in the early part of next year, thank you very much).

Though I'm sure Anchor Bay has something along those lines up its sleeve for a future date, slavering genre devotees will have to settle for the piecemeal approach for the time being. First up, according to DavisDVD, are John Carpenter's "Cigarette Burns" and Stuart Gordon's "Dreams in the Witch House." Both films will be available as of March 28, 2006, individually and as a two-pack!--Pete Mesling

Evil! Purely evil! I've resisted buying "Land of the Dead" for just that reason. I'm waiting for the fancy "superbit" "criterion" or whatever version. Increasingly studios are making the first releases the "sucker" releases. Only the uninitiated or those who just can't wait and WILL buy each and every version seem to be customers of those first releases. It's certainly an exercise in patience.
