Garv’s Pick of the Week: Seven Blood Stained Orchids (Code Red)

Our weekly new release recommendations

For the release week of January 2nd:

New releases are on the scant side this week, but any week that includes a blu-ray upgrade of a classic 70’s giallo is not entirely without merit.

Garv’s Pick of the Week: Seven Blood Stained Orchids [Blu-ray / Code Red]: Umberto Lenzi directed this murder mystery with a black-gloved killer, beautiful women, shocking violence, and multiple suspects.  In other words, it’s a giallo.

Additional titles of interest—

Miss Zombie [Blu-ray / Kino Lorber]: The Teramoto family’s new domestic servant comes with a set of instructions warning not to feed her meat. What could possibly go wrong?

Brad's Status [Blu-ray / Universal]: Ben Stiller stars in a dark comedy about mid-life crisis, which sounds a bit insufferable until you realize that it was written and directed by the great Mike White.

The Breakfast Club [Blu-ray / Criterion]: This isn’t an official “pick,” as I’m not a fan of John Hughes’ films.  However, I know that for many, this is the disc that you’re looking forward to this week.  At least, it isn’t as intolerable as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
