DVD Roundup: skateboarding vampires edition

I've been wanting to watch this film since I saw the trailer ages ago. An Iranian vampire thriller shot in black and white, where the lead (Sheila Vand) skatesboard to a cowboy soundtrack. Next time I'm in HMV I'm going to pick this up, so expect a review soon. EDIT: You can read Layla's review of A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night here.

WWE's Elimination Chamber from the end of May is now available to buy. This one has the Tag Team chamber map, with my favourite tag team the Lucha Dragons. Also we see Kevin Owens fight John Cena, and Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship. Read Richee's review here.

Dziga Vertov's 1929 documentary is being re-released by BFI on blu-ray with a score by minimalist Michael Nyman. With Vertov's incredible directing, Man With a Movie Camera shows a day in the life of the Soviet Union through experimental photography. This release includes extra short films and documentaries by Vertov with soundtracks by Mordant Music.

If you're a fan of the 1960's horror family The Munsters, then you're in luck, as two of their films have been re-released. First up is 1966's Munster, Go Home, where Herman goes to England this claim his country estate, and then there's the 1995 TV movie Here Comes the Munsters, which gives you the origins of the Munster family's move from Transylvania to America. If camp-horror-comedy is your thing, then fill your boots on these releases.

If Troma productions are your bag, then look no further than Tromeo and Juliet, probaly one of the strangest adaptations of Shakespeare's classic that I've ever seen. Expect giant penis', facial prothesis, Lemmy from Motorhead and gorey deaths galore. EDIT: read Layla's review of Tromeo and Juliet here.
