    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ALMOST HEROES, BLOOD OF BEASTS,
    CHAINED HEAT 2, ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING, FOREVER MOZART, JIMINY
    GLICK IN LALAWOOD, KICKING AND SCREAMING, NERO, NIGHT OF THE LEPUS,
    TERROR BENEATH THE SEA, and THEY CAME BACK:


    ALMOST HEROES (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall score 50/100):
    "Realizing that Christopher Guest directed Almost Heroes is like
    discovering Steven Spielberg was the brains behind Boat Trip."

    BLOOD OF BEASTS (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 70/100):
    "I mean, it accomplishes the job it sets out to -- telling the time-
    honored Beauty/Beast story and stick a bunch of Vikings in it -- but the
    combination of some dubious acting, uneven set design, and an overall
    cheap feel detracted from the film."

    CHAINED HEAT 2 (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 69/100):
    "All the bases are covered -- shower scenes, gratuitous nudity, and
    beautiful women in confined spaces -- but does the movie do anything to
    transcend its trashiness? Um, nope."

    ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING (reviewed by Patrick Bromley, overall
    score 68/100):
    "The older I get, the busier I get, the more I realize that life is
    short -- too short for a film like this. Every single person involved
    has done better work, and Andrew Bergman's Honeymoon in Vegas did a far
    superior job combining romantic comedy with the absurdity of Elvis
    worship and the joy of his artistry."

    FOREVER MOZART (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 60/100):
    "I consider myself intelligent, literate, and somewhat cultured. Even
    so, I grasped about one in ten of Godard's cultural and political
    references."

    JIMINY GLICK IN LALAWOOD (reviewed by Patrick Naugle, overall
    score 58/100):
    "The lesson quickly learned while watching Jiminy Glick in Lalawood is
    that Glick is funny in small bursts with celebrities, but not so funny
    when he's parading around a movie spouting head-scratching remarks."

    KICKING AND SCREAMING (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 69/100):
    "Look, you've got a rising comic star and almost a bona fide box office
    draw (Will Ferrell), a time-tested premise (cute kids playing sports),
    cute kids (see 'time-tested premise'), an inspired, bizarre cameo (Mike
    Ditka), and two attractive lesbian parents. What could go wrong? Lots."

    NERO (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 50/100):
    "At times Nero plays like a trailer for itself, and at other times it
    lumbers along aimlessly."

    FULL REVIEW: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/nero.php

    NIGHT OF THE LEPUS (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall score 47/100):
    "With fantastic classics like Mad Love, The Major and the Minor, Hold
    Back the Dawn, Phantom Lady, and so many others still inexplicably not
    available on DVD, who in the world decided to devote the time, energy,
    and resources to bringing this to store shelves?"

    TERROR BENEATH THE SEA (reviewed by James A. Stewart, overall
    score 72/100):
    "Those of you who have deep-seated fears of guys running around in
    rubber monster suits and bad dubbing will find this a chiller that lives
    up to its name."

    THEY CAME BACK (reviewed by Russell Engebretson, overall score 65/100):
    "Unlike their American cinematic brethren, French zombies are well-
    behaved and properly groomed, and retain their good complexions."
