Best DVD / BluRay releases of 2010 
Written by: on December 19th, 2010

Another great year and narrowing down the choices was not an easy task. Now without further ado. Here are 10kbullets picks for best releases for the year 2010.

Maraschino Cherry -Platinum Elite Collection (Video X Pix)
“Maraschino Cherry is a satisfying swan song for adult cinema’s greatest auteur.”Cliff Wood

Vengeance Trilogy: Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance / Oldboy / Lady Vengeance – BluRay (Tartan Video / Palisades Pictures)
“Overall this is an exceptional release which gives all three films their best audio / video presentations to date and the wealth of extra content leave no stone unturned in regard to the production aspects of these productions, highly recommended.” Michael Den Boer

Blonde Ambition – Platinum Elite Collection (Video X Pix)
“The Gone With The Wind orgy remake features syncopated sex scenes that required all the money shots to be synchronized like a Busby Berkely musical (42nd Street, etc.). Blonde Ambition is a movie with hardcore scenes rather than a hardcore film.”Jimmy the Gent

So Sweet, So Dead (Camera Obscura)
“The film’s sleazy tone is quickly established in its opening scene in which a woman’s bloody naked corpse is on display while the police walk around her looking for clues. In fact of the women who are murdered in the film the camera often lingers on their semi nudes corpses.”Michael Den Boer

Martin (Arrow Video)
“A hugely enjoyable subversive spin on the vampire genre and arguably Romero’s best film (the man himself has cited it as his personal favorite).” Giuseppe Rijitano

Horror High -35th Anniversary Edition (Code Red)
“There is something oddly endearing about this unique take on Robert Lewis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.”Michael Den Boer

Inferno – BluRay (Arrow Video)
“Inferno is easily Dario Argento’s most underrated film and those who are willing to embrace this film’s eccentricities are sure to get the most out of this film.”Michael Den Boer

Spirits Of The Dead – BluRay (Arrow Video)
“Performance wise Terrance Stamp in the role of Toby Dammit towers over all the other actors who appear in these three segments. He gives a enigmatic performance that is equally mesmerizing and utterly convincing.”Michael Den Boer

Score – Uncensored Version (Cult Epics)
“Ultimately Score is Radley Metzger’s most under-appreciated film and now that a fully uncut version of the film is finally available. Maybe now this film can be viewed with fresh eyes and finally find the audience that has always eluded it.” Michael Den Boer

Maniac – BluRay (Blue Underground)
“Maniac was made during an era when horror films tried to be the more shocking than what had come before it. There is no denying that Maniac stand outs as one of the most grueling urban nightmare’s to ever grace the silver screen.”Michael Den Boer

The Visitor (Code Red)
“The Visitor a supernatural / Sci-Fi hybrid that uses the age old battle of good versus evil as its foundation.”Michael Den Boer

Pretty Maids All In A Row – DVD R (Warner Archive)
“If you don’t know who the Beatles are, then you probably won’t consider this film to have an ounce of credibility, but trust me, it’s the real McCoy. Only thing missing is the streaker.”Carroll Jenkins

Sinner: The Secret Diary of a Nymphomaniac (Mondo Macabro)
“Ultimately Sinner is a De Sade like morality tale about loss of innocence and the aftermath that follows.”Michael Den Boer

Battle Royale – Limited Edition BluRay (Arrow Video)
“Ultimately Battle Royale is a provocative film about the darker sides of human nature. That over the years has not lost any of powerful and relevance.”Michael Den Boer

Vampire Circus – BluRay / DVD Combo
(Synapse Films)
“Vampire Circus is more of an fantasy based film that derives its horror’s from its nightmarish visuals that are satisfying mix of blood, sex and magic.”Michael Den Boer
