Out Now: Trick ‘r Treat / Year One / Anvil! The Story of Anvil

6 10 2009

out now 10-06-09

More good than bad! I hardly ever get to say that here, but this week’s DVD releases give us two truly fantastic films that you should get your hands on. Check out the details after the jump.

Trick ‘r Treat

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

IMDb Score: 7.9

Trick ‘r Treat is undoubtedly one of the best Halloween films ever made and amongst the best in the past decade. It is an absolute shame that this got stuck with the direct-to-DVD stamp. Check out our full review later today.

Best Buy Amazon Target
Widescreen $14.99 $14.99
Blu-ray $24.99 $24.99


Year One

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 16%

IMDb Score: 5.1

In spite of the talent involved, Year One was clunky and full of stock characters. The film was shooting for something much higher, but you really should go watch History of the World Part 1 instead.

Best Buy Amazon Target
Unrated $15.99 $15.99 $15.99
Rated $24.99 $18.99 $15.99
Blu-ray $25.99 $22.99 $26.99


Anvil! The Story of Anvil

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 98%

IMDb Score: 8.2

Like a real life This is Spinal Tap!, Anvil is not only laugh-out-loud funny but probably more engaging than it should be.

Best Buy Amazon Target
Widescreen $14.99 $14.99 $17.99

Final Verdict: While Anvil certainly is a great film, Trick ‘r Treat is your true winner here. It is a movie that will gain notoriety for years to come.
