Objects of Desire: Special Edition Horror Blu-Rays – Part Two

Horror Month – June 2015

Loved by horror geeks universally; a special edition DVD or Blu-Ray release. The appeal comes equally from the packing, presentation, special features & promotional items that are included with the set. These range from well designed standard jewel cases all the way to through to full-blown promotional sets.  Here I examine a few such sets from my own collection and elsewhere.

Blu-Ray Review: A.W.O.L.: Absent Without Leave (1990)

vlcsnap-816964This story of the conflicted fighter who is expected to throw a fight is nothing new in Cinema; these stories have been told many times. The foreign legion element is the only thing that is new here; but not that new. Released in 1990, this film seems like a hang-over from the 80s. And as if we needed it pointing out, the largely distracting music cues that burst in at various times make this abundantly clear. Is this really necessary? The cinematography really dates this film as-well, shot like a wannabe Rocky.
