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.

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.
