Their Melrose location currently has the amazing Return of the Great Showdowns exhibit on the walls and this coming Friday, September 28, their Venice location opens an insanely clever and cool exhibit by popular pop artists Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo.

The show is called Around the World In An ’80s Daze and is comprised of travel posters for locations from famous ’80s films and TV shows. Stuff like The Terminator, Caddyshack, Vacation, A Nightmare on Elm Street or Thundercats. Opening 7 p.m. September 28 at Gallery 1988 Venice, Around the World In An ’80s Daze remains on display through October 20.

While each artist has already revealed a few posters to tease the fans, /Film is proud to debut three new posters each for this super exciting show. Check them out after the jump. Read More »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.

Rent It

Splice has its problems—not least of which is a flat third act horror turn-around—but it’s also refreshingly weird and original, taking the familiar monster movie/genetic-experiment-gone-wrong formula and twisting it into something uniquely its own. The Cronenberg inspiration is clearly evident, and lest the film get too serious, there’s also a knowing Sam Raimi vibe that creeps in now and again during some uncomfortably hilarious moments of absurdity. Not everyone will be able to tolerate the bizarre turns the story takes, but for those able to let the film’s perverse sense of dread pull them in, it’s one of the more intriguing films to be released in quite awhile.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – A Director’s Playground: Vicenzo Natali on the set of Splice.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Universal Studios Hollywood just announced the newest maze for the 2010 Halloween Horror Nights:

“A Nightmare On Elm Street: Never Sleep Again,” will bring guests back on a nightmare journey to the town of Springwood, the scene of Freddy Krueger’s unspeakable crimes. They’ll wind through the ominously twisting corridors of the Barham Day Care Center, glimpse ghastly scenes of carnage among the young people of Springwood and face the ultimate showdown with Freddy in his infamous boiler room lair.

The new maze is based upon the 2010 Platinum Dunes remake A Nightmare on Elm Street, and not the Wes Craven original. More details after the jump.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3D Sequel

A Nightmare On Elm Street

Platinum Dunes A Nightmare on Elm Street remake “killed” (pun intended) at the box office this weekend, taking in over $32.9 million domestically in its first outing. This is the biggest opening for the Nightmare series, and the largest horror opening for the months of both May and April. Apparently this was enough to get Warner Bros/New Line to commit to a 3D sequel.
