RT on DVD & Blu-ray: Contraband and The Innkeepers

Plus, an overlooked indie and a cult classic.

This is, quite possibly, one of the thinnest weeks for DVD releases that we've ever seen. If TV miniseries are your thing, you may want to check out the 2011 British retelling of the story of the Titanic or the 1979 television version of John le Carre's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. There are also a couple of poorly rated horror flicks (11-11-11 and The Wicker Tree) and a couple of new Criterions (Mario Monicelli's The Organizer and a collection of Hollis Frampton films). But this week, our attention will be limited to the new Mark Wahlberg actioner, Ti West's haunted house story, a powerful coming-of-age drama that flew under the radar, and a Japanese cult classic on Blu-Ray. See below for the full list!

Contraband

51%

Movies released during the early part of the calendar year are typically meant to bridge the gap between awards season and the summer blockbuster frenzy, but every once in a while, we'll get one that's either a surprise critical favorite (Source Code) or unexpected crowd pleaser (Taken). Contraband, which opened in January, certainly had its sights set on the latter, and it almost worked. Mark Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday, a former smuggler trying to live an honest life with his wife (Kate Beckinsale) and kids. When his brother-in-law botches a drug delivery, he must pull a crew together for one last job to get him and his family out of the game forever. If the "one last job" part of that summary sounds altogether familiar, you?re on the same page as many of the critics, who said while Contraband was more entertaining than the average January action flick, its lack of originality and unnecessarily convoluted plot kept it from being memorable. At 51%, it might make for a decent throwaway popcorn movie, but not much more.

The Innkeepers

78%

Ti West enjoyed a modest career boost when his '80s horror homage The House of the Devil met with widespread critical approval, and though he has yet to amass a huge cult following, his love for the genre's classic sensibilities remains decidedly intact in The Innkeepers, Certified Fresh at 77%. Filmed in the actual Yankee Pedlar Inn in Connecticut where the story takes place, the movie stars Sara Paxton and Pat Healy as Claire and Luke, the hotel's final two caretakers before its scheduled closing. Believing the inn to be haunted, the pair set out to record proof of supernatural activity and end up finding more than they bargained for. While The Innkeepers doesn't introduce any new haunted house twists, critics felt that West's affection for his characters and deft blend of humor and tension helped to elevate it above standard horror fare. Like The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers is somewhat of a slow burn, and it may not be the scariest movie you've ever seen, but word is there are other reasons to watch it.

Pariah

94%

For a short while around the time George Lucas's Red Tails hit theaters, media outlets were abuzz with commentary on the black film community, and a small indie drama was frequently cited as a quality example of black filmmaking that deserved more exposure. Helmed by first-time writer-director Dee Rees, Pariah is simultaneously a coming-of-age and coming-out story of 17-year-old Alike (Adepero Oduye, in a stunning debut), a Brooklyn girl learning to embrace her sexuality and navigate her troubled home life with grace and optimism. Characterized by uncommon authenticity and powerful performances, Pariah succeeds in transcending race and gender barriers to make some universal points about relationships and their effects on the people in them. Certified Fresh at 96% on the Tomatometer, Pariah marks Rees as a new talent to watch, and if you enjoy a good, if sometimes painfully honest, slice-of-life story, you may want to see this.

Shogun Assassin - 5-Disc Collector's Edition Blu-Ray

——

If you've been with us for a while, you know that we like to profile a few cult items here and there. A couple of weeks ago, we featured a box set of Dark Shadows; this week, we'd like to present the 5-film Collector's Edition of Shogun Assassin, originally known in Japan as the Lone Wolf and Cub series and based on the famous 1970s Japanese graphic novels of the same name. If you've ever listened to Wu-Tang rapper GZA's classic album Liquid Swords, you've heard several audio samples from the film, and if you recall the final segment from Kill Bill Vol. 2, Shogun Assassin is what Beatrix Kiddo and her daughter are watching together in bed; in other words, the movie's got some famous fans. For those unfamiliar, Shogun Assassin is actually a recutting of the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films, which follow a disgraced samurai and his infant son as they wander the Japanese countryside and fight off would-be assassins. Unrelenting in its violence, the film was prime grindhouse fodder when it was released in 1980 and holds a strong following to this day. This new Blu-ray set contains not only the restored film, but also the subsequent four sequels, as well as a ton of extras like an interview with superfan Samuel L. Jackson, new commentary tracks, and more.

Contraband looked horrible and annoying from the previews, I'll wait a few years from now when it's available at my local movie store as part of a 5 for $20 deal. Nothing really worth seeing this week, I'll wait until next week when The Artist comes out on DVD and see what the fuss is finally about. May seems to be a good month, with Chronicle, The Grey and a couple others available to own.

The characters in "Innkeepers" were so likable that I was able to forgive the movie for not being very scary. If you don't have a crush on Sara Paxton by the end of the film, you must be one grouchy SOB.

Ti West is one of the best horror directors working today, and if you think it's not 'scary' that just shows how that word has been redefined to favor "jumps" over "mood", and it just accentuates what I like about this guy. "Pariah" is "Precious" with brains and a non-condescending heart. Dee Rees won a well deserved award at this year's Independent Spirit Awards. I already have the Shogun Assassin films on bootleg-quality VHS, and this just makes me that much more guilty to not have a Blu-Ray yet (as I am every week I find out various reissues are Blu-Ray exclusives).

I quite liked the Innkeepers alot more than "The House of the Devil". I though HOTD had a geart mood but the ending was very anticlimatic and unoriginal. A tinge of cultists horror with a very similar vibe to "rosemary's baby". So, as far as I am concerned, Ti West still has to prove himself. The Innkeepers for me was a great step up. The characters are well created and likable. And the old timey ghost story catered excellently to my phantasmagoric sensibilities. I agree that It was scary, the scene where the ghost is under the sheet scared me silly cus I was sure it was her friend playing a joke on her, so it really caught me offguard lol.
I watched Shogun Assassin because of Gza's Liquid Swords, I was a huge Wu tang fan then and loved the movie for it's pulp sensibility and humor. Still like it a great deal really. Contraband for me is a miss but am curious about Pariah, might check it out.

The scary parts were very scary, and I loved the film for the most part. Having to describe it to a friend later in the day, however, made me realize that not much had actually happened, and so it kind of felt like "empty calories" in retrospect. My favorite movie is "Vampyr" so it's not a matter of me preferring jumps or blood. I've liked the two West films I've seen, but he hasn't hit one out of the park for me yet.

West, for me, stands out like a glass of lemonade in the desert that has been the state of horror films over the last decade, overly influenced by 'found footage' phoniness and the cynical and shlocky Eli Roths and Darren Bousmans and New Line reboots and too many sadistic films that confuse horror with hopelessness. West stands out for his originality and obvious dedication to craft. But I will agree with you on aspect - I think his best films are still ahead of him. (Good call on Dreyer! And it occured to me when I reread the post that it looks like I was referring to your comment about "scary", but that's unintentional)

What's impressed me so far are the characters in his movies. The two "innkeepers" as well as the babysitter from "House.." are all very likable people. I find myself disliking most of the people for whom I'm supposed to be rooting in horror movies, so that alone is a big deal. Some of the dialogue in "Innkeepers" makes me think a Ti West comedy could possibly be pretty good. If he can use these skills on a really kick-ass story in the future, I can see him being a major "star" one day.

I loved House of the Devil. That was a breath of fresh air for me. I haven't liked a horror film that much since Gore Verbinski's The Ring in 2002. I have yet to watch Innkeepers, but I'm sure Ti West will go on to make some truly great horror films that will resuscitate the genre(hopefully). He seems to be on the right track, anyway. And I agree with Janson about the sad state of the genre. Even though The Ring is a remake(that began the flood of J-Horror remakes in the 2000's), it's so well made and really gets under your skin, unlike most horror remakes that come out now. It seems it's all about excessive violence, 80's nostalgia(Friday 13th, Nightmare on Elm St., Fright Night) and found footage currently.

I'm just going to wait for the original and uncut "Lonewolf and Cub" series. I remember checking some of those out every Friday night whenever the 'Wu Tang Clan' or some other hip/hop group used to redubbed chop socky films using their own soundtrack and thought how entertaining they're once the fights were to start, but sometimes after watching them you still want to check out the original versions!

I wish I would have liked Innkeepers more than I did. I've met Ti and he's a really nice guy, but Innkeepers really did nothing for me. I liked HOTD a great deal, but there's a difference between "slow paced" and "absolutely nothing happening", which is what Innkeepers was. Plus the ending made absolutely no sense, or maybe I was just too stupid to understand it. But to those of you who enjoyed it, I'm glad you did. I just couldn't get into it.

Apr 24 - 10:34 AM

Dave J

Interesting you should say this if you didn't get anything out it, but the question is whether you'll get anything by watching the extras because sometimes by checking out the social commentary might make you appreciate it a little more!

Apr 24 - 01:24 PM

ProducerPaul

Paul Barrett

That's possible, but we bought it on Apple TV so no extras with it. And really, a movie shouldn't have to be explained with extras, it should make its point within the context of the film.

Apr 24 - 02:33 PM

Dave J

Dave J

True, and I once believe that to be true too, but sometimes to understand why they did this and why they did that can bring a little understanding to the movie itself, you don't have to change your opinion about it. I've given a lot of negative ratings on a lot of films, but as soon as I watched the commentaries, I can understand where they're coming from and understand why they did it and sometimes that's more entertaining than watching the film itself!

Apr 24 - 02:49 PM

ProducerPaul

Paul Barrett

Good point. And I do enjoy watching extra features. Maybe I'll give that a look at some point. As I said, Ti is a really cool person and I think he has talent. I will certainly watch whatever he comes up with next. I think he's still finding himself.

West's "third act" problems are probably the biggest point of contention for his critics. I don't mind them, but I can't quite defend them either, which I've found myself trying to do with a number of friends. Have you seen "V/H/S"?

And for those of you who like slow build movies, please consider checking out (shameless self-promotion) Cold Storage, which is a film I produced. It's available on Netflix, Amazon, and iTunes. If you check it out, let me know what you think.

Apr 24 - 02:38 PM

Janson Jinnistan

Janson Jinnistan

"V/H/S" is an omnibus horror film with a novel twist on found footage, where an abandoned house holds various footage shot by 9 different directors (West being one). It may still be on the festival circuit, but it's a great sampling of some young talent. I'll try to find "Cold Storage" and give it a shot.

Apr 24 - 02:48 PM

If I come across a previously viewed copy of "Cold Storage" or a used copy of the actual movie, then I'll check it out. But is that the 1996 version or is their a recent version!

Apr 24 - 03:06 PM

Paul Barrett

I didn't realize there was a 1996 version. Ours is 2009 and stars Nick Searcy and Joelle Carter, both of whom can now be seen in the FX show Justified.
