    THE AMAZING KRESKIN: MENTAL MARVELS, FEATS AND STUNTS FROM THE WORLD'S
    GREATEST MENTALIST (reviewed by Eric Profancik, overall score 50/100):
    "I love magic. Outside of that extreme Goth magician and David Blaine, I
    think I've seen every TV magic special in the past twenty years,
    including the magician on Fox who revealed all the secrets. I've even
    shelled out good money to see David Copperfield in person. By leaps and
    bounds, what I saw Kreskin perform on this DVD was the worst display of
    prestidigitation in my life."

    DARK HARVEST 2 (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 45/100):
    "Do you want to replicate the experience of watching this movie? Grab
    your camcorder, find the nearest cornfield, and start running around. Or
    drive nails into your shinbone."

    DAY OF THE DEAD 2: CONTAGIUM (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
    score 3/100):
    "There's a behind-the-scenes featurette but, just as you might refrain
    from watching human waste being excreted, you'll likely find little
    interest into learning how this waste of time was pinched off."

    DESPERATE SOULS (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 55/100):
    "The acting is laughably awful and the story makes as little sense to me
    as a textbook on quantum theory written in Aramaic."

    DR. HORROR'S EROTIC HOUSE OF IDIOTS (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway,
    overall score 50/100):
    "I don't want to see these women 'acting' fully clothed any more than I
    want to see Arnold Schwarzenegger and Vin Diesel in a production of I'm
    Not Rappaport. "

    FELONY (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 69/100):
    "Another day, another obscure, crappy action movie."

    GUS VAN SANT'S LAST DAYS (reviewed by Ryan Keefer, overall score
    34/100):
    "Van Sant may hate to hear it, but more activity and interesting
    characters would have probably made this a more palatable film."

    HEART OF THE BEHOLDER (reviewed by Neal Solon, overall score 75/100):
    "The screenplay is well suited to the purpose of retelling real-life
    events, more or less as they happened. It fails, however, to create any
    empathy for Mike Howard and his wife. No emotional connection is
    established early on, so as they move through their series of trials,
    the viewer is disinclined to care."

    LOVE AND ANGER (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 65/100):
    "Love and Anger suffers from an association between its segments that is
    so loose it often feels as though the individual filmmakers are
    competing for our attention rather than working cooperatively."

    WILLIAM SHATNER'S A TWIST IN THE TALE (reviewed by Geoffrey Miller,
    overall score 55/100):
    "A Twist In The Tale's makers seem to have made the erroneous assumption
    that an 'all ages' demographic meant nothing could be remotely
    complicated or frightening. Even on the rare occasion when something
    possibly scary happens, it's played with such a lack of dramatic flair
    that it might as well have been someone going to the refrigerator to
    grab a soda."
