Dead Shadows

Shout! Factory

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Hill Street Blues: The Complete Collection Capt. Frank Furillo (Daniel J. Travanti) heads up an inner city police precinct with smarts, heart and determination, but even with the best officers at his command the job can be a constant struggle. Of course not all of his cops are quite at that level, and the various dramas they endure and sometimes cause keep the station constantly in flux. One of the most acclaimed TV series of the ’80s, this Steven Bochco-created cop show is the clear precursor to ones like NYPD Blue in its mix of police dramas and personal story lines. Its epic ensemble allows for season-long arcs across multiple characters, and the show does a fantastic job of ensuring that each of the characters get their own moments and episodes to shine. Shout! Factory’s box set includes all 144 episodes (seven seasons, each in their own snapcase) as well as multiple special features offering insight into the show’s creation and talents. [DVD extras: Featurettes, interviews, gag reel, commentaries]

French filmmakers burst onto the horror scene a few years back to deliver some brutal and fantastically entertaining gems like Inside, Martyrs and High Tension, and we all hoped the trend would continue. Sadly their brief foray into genre mastery sputtered out after a few generic and unsatisfying movies. Dead Shadows hopes to change all that. Far from the knife-wielding slashers that first garnered attention from international horror fans, David Cholewa‘s new film takes its lead from sources as diverse as H.P. Lovecraft and Attack the Block. The film follows a young man in Paris whose world collapses around him when a passing comet unleashes hordes of creatures throughout the city. Check out the trailer below.
