    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ALL IN A NIGHT'S WORK, ALONE IN THE
    DARK, CHUPACABRA TERROR, 800 BULLETS, EXHUMED, LOST LAKE, MARTIN LUTHER
    KING: "I HAVE A DREAM", ONE DOWN TWO TO GO, and THE PAJAMA GAME:


    ALL IN A NIGHT'S WORK (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall score 74/100):
    "Rather than being the hedonistic romp that it yearns to be, All In A
    Night's Work only reinforces its own uptight sexual viewpoint until what
    might have been a delightfully titillating farce winds up as a rather
    stuffy and uninspired mess. There's nothing here that hasn't been done
    before: Doris Day practically wrote the book on this type of movie, and
    did it with more class and more sass."

    ALONE IN THE DARK (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 40/100):
    "I'm starting this review without a plot description of the movie. Why?
    Because I don't have a clue what is going on in Alone In The Dark."

    CHUPACABRA TERROR (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 50/100):
    "Like all death scenes, this one is represented by a liter of chunky
    tomato soup thrown at the wall."

    800 BULLETS (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 52/100):
    "Using the Leone language of overlong takes, drawn out scenes, and
    overblown subplots, De La Iglesia seems to be striving for a kind of
    happy medium homage. Part of the time, he wants to remind the viewer
    of Once Upon a Time in the West. But at other moments, he appears to
    be remaking The Goonies with grizzled old Spaniards as his half-
    witted heroes."

    EXHUMED (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 78/100):
    "There is some really good stuff happening with Exhumed. Writer-director
    Brian Clement has put together a few extremely creative, and
    sporadically entertaining, horror shorts. That's really what this is: a
    collection of vignettes. As a single logical narrative, Exhumed
    stumbles."

    LOST LAKE (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 45/100):
    "The so-called plot is a mixture of (not enough) sex, environmentalism,
    reincarnation, drugs, flashbacks, family histories, and some crap about
    all matter in the universe being composed of tiny sparkling lights. What
    does it all mean? Well, if you ask me, it means not everyone with the
    resources to make a movie has the skills to make a movie."

    MARTIN LUTHER KING: "I HAVE A DREAM" (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 80/100):
    "Martin Luther King is always careful to avoid the racial discrimination
    that he is fighting against, but never softens his stance on the
    mistreatment of his peers or the importance of full equality."

    ONE DOWN TWO TO GO (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 78/100):
    "What could have been the Blaxploitation movie to end all Blaxploitation
    movies just doesn't have the juice to separate itself from the pack. One
    Down Two to Go has its moments, but the end result is too uneven to
    fully recommend."

    THE PAJAMA GAME (reviewed by Bryan Pope, overall score 80/100):
    "With all of the lousy management infractions, and with the many
    instances of sexual harassment and workplace violence on display, it's a
    wonder nobody at the factory has ever blown the whistle on, well,
    everyone else. After all, the shenanigans here would be enough to send
    even the most-experienced HR director into hysterics."
