    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of ISLAND MONSTER / THE CHAMBER OF
    FEAR, LAWS OF ATTRACTION, NATIONAL LAMPOON LIVE: DOWN AND DIRTY, NORA'S
    HAIR SALON, PARTY ANIMALZ, PHANTOMS OF DEATH TRIPLE FEATURE, SISTER MY
    SISTER, and VERY ANNIE MARY:


    ISLAND MONSTER / THE CHAMBER OF FEAR (reviewed by David Gutierrez,
    overall score 40/100):
    "Man alive, is this movie terrible. For starters, the first ten minutes
    of Mantel's assistants Mark and Corinne venturing underground can be
    recreated in the privacy of your own home with some tin foil, a red
    light bulb and an empty garage. I usually applaud economic filmmaking
    techniques, but this is just pathetic. "

    LAWS OF ATTRACTION (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 60/100):
    "The plot borrows heavily from the Katharine Hepburn-Spencer Tracy
    classic Adam's Rib. Director Peter Howitt has done fine work with
    another, more unconventional romantic comedy, 1998's Sliding Doors. He
    also directed Johnny English, but we'll ignore that for now."

    NATIONAL LAMPOON LIVE: DOWN AND DIRTY (reviewed by David Johnson,
    overall score 65/100):
    "I do have less respect, though, for comics who rely on the shock value
    of saying anything and everything vulgar instead of actually developing
    some authentically funny material. That's what I felt as I suffered
    through this disc."

    NORA'S HAIR SALON (reviewed by David Packard, overall score 20/100):
    "A thought-provoking ('When is this interminable dog going to end?')
    movie sure to leave you dealing with a wide range of emotions usually
    reserved for the stages of grief, Nora's Hair Salon can only be
    recommended for those into self-torture or persons with a morbid
    curiosity of what Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston (in a brief cameo)
    have been up to recently other than making the police blotter. It's also
    recommended for budding screenwriters dealing with self-confidence
    issues: Knowing crap like this can actually be green-lit, financed, and
    produced surely should give you a needed injection of self-confidence. "

    PARTY ANIMALZ (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 22/100):
    "This is a screwball comedy, not high art. But then, where art the
    comedy, where art the screwing? "

    PHANTOMS OF DEATH TRIPLE FEATURE (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
    score 42/100):
    "Although each film does its best to copy the noir formula, the result
    is about two clues short of unraveling what made the truly great
    pictures of the day work so well."

    SISTER MY SISTER (reviewed by Dan Mancini, overall score 69/100):
    "Sister My Sister quickly squanders any sense of dread established by
    its opening shots of a bloody crime scene by making Madame Danzard a
    hateful martinet and her daughter a dull ugly duckling. We know from
    the beginning the duo is destined to die, but the film never convinces
    us to care."

    VERY ANNIE MARY (reviewed by Diane Wild, overall score 55/100):
    "The movie lives and eventually dies by the audience's reaction to Annie-
    Mary. Griffiths brings sweetness to the role, but the script
    undermines it. "
