Baytown Outlaws, The Bible

New DVD/VOD Tuesday, April 2


The Baytown Outlaws - PHASE 4
  • Phase 4
  • The Baytown Outlaws

The Baytown Outlaws
When her crime-lord ex-husband (Billy Bob Thornton) shoots her and takes her godson, Celeste (Eva Longoria) hires redneck goons to get the kid back. In response, Mr. Crime Lord hires stripper ninjas and other assorted assassins. Nice. (Phase 4)

The Bible
The “docudrama” miniseries touted as a History Channel “original drama” that some Christians have labeled as “inaccurate” and “not danged factual.” To recap: A TV show about a fictional book featuring fabricated characters ain’t real ’nuff. (Fox)

Hemingway & Gellhorn
As for actual history: Writer Ernest Hemingway (Clive Owen) and journalist Martha Gellhorn (Nicole Kidman) begin a torrid literary relationship spanning a decade. Sweet, but would you believe … Lars Ulrich as a communist filmmaker?! (HBO)

John Dies at the End
A street drug called Soy Sauce allows users to span time and dimension—but some come back as zombified monsters. Can slackers John and David save the world? Oh, hell no. But you had me at “From the director of Bubba Ho-Tep.” (Magnet)

A hired clown (Ross Noble) inadvertently murdered at a kids birthday party returns six years later, via black magic, to exact his revenge by slaughtering said kids in typical clown-like fashion. You know, if clowns killed. Which they totally do. (Dark Sky)
