Video Picks

  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: Matinee (Shout Select)

    For the release week of January 16th: Garv’s Pick of the Week: Matinee : MANT! Joe Dante’s love letter to the gimacky hucksterism of producer/director William Castle stars John Goodman as Lawrence Woolsey, a fictional director who plans to release his latest horror film during the...
  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Witches (Arrow Academy)

    For the release week of January 9th:  Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Witches : To be completely honest, I’ve never seen this Italian anthology film, but the premise is strong enough that it will likely prompt a “blind buy.”  Silvana Mangano (of Bitter Rice fame) stars...
  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: Seven Blood Stained Orchids (Code Red)

    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 : Umberto Lenzi...
  • Garv’s Picks of the Year: 2017

    Salutations, disc devotees, I launched IT CAME FROM THE BOTTOM SHELF earlier this year primarily as a movie recommendation website, hoping to draw attention to films and video releases that I thought deserved more attention.  As the year draws to a close, it seems appropriate to take a look...
  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: Brawl in Cell Block 99 (Image)

    For the release week of December 26th: The day after Christmas isn’t a prime video release date, but there are still a handful of worthy titles coming out today. Garv’s Pick of the Week: Brawl In Cell Block 99 : Unfortunately, the new film from S....
  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: Suspiria (Synapse Films)

    For the release week of December 19th: Wow!  There are a lot of major releases this week (which is quite unusual for less than a week before Chrismas).  I’m more excited about several of the runners-up this week than I am about some of my #1 picks in prior...
  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: Auntie Mame (Warner Archive)

    For the release week of December 5th: Garv’s Pick of the Week: Auntie Mame (1958) : Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death; but that can’t be said for Mame Dennis, played to perfection by Rosalind Russell.  I’m looking forward to revisiting...
  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Wrong Guy (Kino Lorber)

    For the release week of November 28th: Garv’s Pick of the Week: The Wrong Guy : This hilarious Canadian Hitchcock spoof from writer/actor/comedian Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall) never received a U.S. theatrical release.  That’s a shame, because The Wrong Guy was funnier than...
  • Garv’s Pick of the Week: Le Samouraï (Criterion)

    For the release week of 11/14/17: Garv’s Pick of the Week: Le samouraï : One of the most requested titles from Criterion gets the Blu-ray upgrade that fans have been longing for!  This ultra-cool existential noir by director Jean-Pierre Melville stars Alain Delon as a quiet French hitman. Additional...
