New DVDs Tuesday, Dec. 13


Fright Night
  • Fright Night

Fright Night
Remake: A teen (Anton Yelchin) believes a vampire (Colin Farrell) has moved in next door—but since he’s not sparkly and sensitive, no one believes him. Inexplicably, the ’85 J. Geils Band theme song isn’t included. (DreamWorks) Netflix

Kung Fu Panda 2
Po (Jack Black), his crew and China in general are threatened by an evil new supervillain (Gary Oldman), and only by unlocking his own repressed memories can Po defeat him. Or they could just move. Seems like way less hassle. (DreamWorks) Netflix

Little Deaths
One couple lures homeless girls into kinky sexual games; another couple engages in their own sexcapades; a third couple are a recovering pimp and ’ho. As the rules of drama and the Christian Right dictate, they all must pay! (Image) Netflix

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
In the “sequel” that has little if nothing to do with The Planet of the Apes, San Francisco scientists inadvertently mutate chimpanzees who then go (wait for it) ape and violently take over the world. Not a Syfy movie. (Fox) Netflix

Sledge Hammer: The Complete Series
The greatest cop show ever, finally on DVD: Rebel lawman Sledge Hammer (David Rasche) blows away criminals, punks and jaywalkers with a sweet .44 Magnum, running afoul of the police force and society every week. Oh, Sledge! (Image) Netflix
