5. DVDs: Vamps, Dust Up, The Doctor's Wife
It’s a great weekend for campy DVD releases, starting with Amy Heckerling’s Vamps, reuniting the Clueless director with Alicia Silverstone, who stars alongside Krysten Ritter as two modern New York single lady vampires trying to navigate love in the Big Apple. The DVD, from Anchor Bay Entertainment, hits stores November 13. Watch the trailer below:
Amber Benson (pictured at top) stars in this gritty, self-referential “grindhouse western,” released on DVD through Breaking Glass Pictures November 13. Dust Up, directed by Ward Roberts, features Benson as single mother Ella, who finds herself entrenched in the violent dystopic wild-west world of her methed-out boyfriend, Jack. Featuring no shortage of blood, guts, guns, and even masturbatory cannibalism, Dust Up is a treat for anyone in love with the grindhouse style.
The Doctor's Wife
Austrailian documentary The Doctor’s Wife follows Dr. Vincent Cornelisse and his partner, Duffy, as they make the life-altering decision to leave the comfort of their urban hometown in Brisbane and move to a small, rural town in Queensland, Australia. The film, available on DVD November 13 through Guest House Films, delves into the couple’s nerve-wracking journey as they try to settle in to small-town life, hoping for acceptance from their new neighbors.
