DVD/Blu-ray Releases — 12/20/2011

New options for your home viewing this week:

The Final Destination franchise has been unique for the fact that they are slasher movies without a tangible, mask-wearing, knife-wielding villain.  It’s just Death dispatching people with a macabre sense of humor; the climax of Final Destination 5 even wrecks that in the climax.  Like the other sequels, takes the premise of the first and gives it a new twist, which is…  Let me check my notes…  Oh, yes: An intended victim can kill another person to take their place.  It’s actually a clever gimmick but one that isn’t revealed until about halfway through the movie and after a handful of gruesome deaths.  My review is here.  Available on DVD, Blu-ray, and DVD/Blu-ray Combo.

There’s a lot of talking about a good, old-fashioned orgy in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy before the characters actually get to it.  A group of friends is about to lose their summer home and decide to throw a good, old-fashioned orgy (Note the proper punctuation) to boost their dull and boring lives.  The actual orgy follows through on the promise of the title, and until then, the only things that are missing are the actual jokes.  My review is here.  Available on DVD.
