Invisible Sue (Plötzlich Unsichtbar) DVD Review

Image

I've been visiting various Dollar Tree stores across Long Island and checking out their selection of DVDs and Blu-rays. While I occasionally find a "gem", usually the selection are a bunch of duds. One consistency I've found is that the boxes are usually cluttered with dozens and dozens of kids and family titles from Viva Pictures Distribution. After constantly seeing these titles everywhere, I thought I'd plop down a Dollar and check out some of them; namely BFF Detectives (2019) (aka Die Drei !!! [The Three Exclamation Marks]), Four Enchanted Sisters (2020) (aka Sprite Sisters - Vier zauberhafte Schwestern [Four Lovely Sisters]), Invisible Sue (2018), Antboy (2013), Antboy: Revenge of the Red Fury (2014), and Antboy 3 (2016). I figured that even if each movie sucked, I wouldn't be out more than a buck, and I could always pass it along to someone else.

Those first two films weren't very good, and I don't feel like re-watching them just to write a review. However, I did like Invisible Sue, and I have some feelings about the Antboy trilogy, so I might as well get my Dollar's worth and use them to generate more content for the site. So, let's get this VERY LONG & IMAGE-INTENSIVE article started...

Gorillas in the Mist Blu-Ray Review (Retro VHS Style)

Image

Gorillas in the Mist arrives on Blu-ray as part of Mill Creek Entertainment's Retro VHS Style series, with packaging designed to look like the VHS videocassettes of the 1980s and 1990s. Several other titles in the series have already been reviewed on The Corner Penthouse, and I'm always excited when Mill Creek announces more. It's fun to see if it's a title I used to own on VHS, or one whose trailer I remember seeing at the start of some other VHS tape, or even some obscure movie I've never heard of before.

Rad (Mill Creek Steelbook) Blu-ray Review

Image

On May 22, 2020, Vinegar Syndrome released the 1986 BMX classic Rad onto 4K UHD & Blu-ray, marking the film's FIRST disc release. Yeah, it never saw release on DVD in the 20+ years of that format's existence! Limited to 12,000 copies, Vinegar Syndrome's combo pack sold out quickly and is going for over $100 on eBay and Amazon Marketplace.

If you missed out on the chance to get the Vinegar Syndrome release for a decent price, Mill Creek is here with your "second chance". Using the same transfer that was "scanned and restored in 4K from the original 35mm original camera negative", Mill Creek is set to release Rad on Blu-ray in Steelbook packaging for a MSRP of $39.99 (but Amazon always has it priced cheaper). Read on to find out more about it...

UPDATE: Mill Creek has re-released the film on Blu-ray in standard packaging with MORE special features! I just reviewed that release here.
