    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of EDGAR ALLAN POE'S ANNABEL LEE, FIRE
    AND ICE, GIRL SLAVES OF MORGANA LE FAY, I WAS A ZOMBIE FOR THE FBI, THE
    MAN WHO NEVER WAS, MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS: MICHAEL PALIN'S
    PERSONAL BEST, THE PURIFIERS, THE SENSUOUS NURSE, and SUICIDE GIRLS: THE
    FIRST TOUR:


    EDGAR ALLAN POE'S ANNABEL LEE (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 88/100):
    "What makes this all work so well is the same principle that Tim
    Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas exploited quite effectively.
    Puppets moving on their own are damn creepy! There's something unearthly
    and primal about watching a doll navigate his way through a decrepit
    graveyard in search of his dead lover."

    FIRE AND ICE (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall score 89/100):
    "Why am I being so forgiving when it comes to thin plot and character
    work? It's because the action and the visuals make up for it."

    GIRL SLAVES OF MORGANA LE FAY (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall
    score 98/100):
    "Even in the seventies, people looked askance at movies like Girl Slaves
    of Morgana Le Fay. But with the perspective of history, they seem more
    chaste, and yet more daring, than their modern counterparts."

    I WAS A ZOMBIE FOR THE FBI (reviewed by Mac McEntire, overall
    score 88/100):
    "Any aspiring filmmakers will want to seek out this disc for the
    commentary by director Marius Penczner, who covers all the nuts and
    bolts of zero-budget filmmaking. The commentary is a continuous stream
    of information, including topics such as pulling off cheap effects,
    reusing sets, and how to make the most of every shot."

    THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall score 87/100):
    "I'm not a fan of war films in general, but The Man Who Never Was was
    fascinating viewing. I particularly liked that it showed a side of war
    that I don't usually hear about: the careful thought, preparation, and
    downright cunning that goes into victory."

    MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS: MICHAEL PALIN'S PERSONAL BEST (reviewed by
    Eric Profancik, overall score 80/100):
    "This release, the second of six, should perfectly fit the bill and
    satisfy that Python craving. As each member of the troupe is given the
    opportunity to pick their 'personal best' bits from the series, how
    could you go wrong?"

    THE PURIFIERS (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 65/100):
    "The Purifiers is a techno-laced, super-stylized, ultra-wacky-kinetic
    trainwreck of a film. It seems writer/director Richard Jobson
    desperately wants to create a hard-hitting action spectacle mixed
    with some heavy-handed commentary about disenfranchisement, but after
    82 minutes with this flick, the only thing I wanted to hit was the
    snooze button."

    THE SENSUOUS NURSE (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 88/100):
    "This is one time that the comedy side of 'sex comedy' actually amounts
    to something. I typically deplore antics or zaniness, and can barely
    tolerate wacky hijinks. But Rossati imbues his antics with an extra
    measure of snark, and the humor is delivered with such unexpected
    crackle that it continually caught me off guard."

    SUICIDE GIRLS: THE FIRST TOUR (reviewed by Adam Arseneau, overall
    score 84/100):
    "It is an assault on the senses and the sexuality from the opening
    frame; a visceral combination of blaring rock and strong, beautiful
    women shaking their proverbial moneymakers for no reason other than they
    @#$%ing feel like it."
