VHS Selections: Hired to Kill and Crimes of Passion

videodrome 3

The fine folks over at Arrow Video enjoy breathing new life into otherwise forgotten titles from the VHS era.  They have given these movies updated sound and picture quality and have given them a good selection of special features.  Here are a few of the titles you can now get on combo Blu-Ray/DVD.  All reviews are written by me and appear courtesy of Cinema Sentries

 

Hired to Kill.

Hired-To-Kill-1990-280x390

 

 

The premise is about a mercenary and a  gang of women soldiers who pose as fashion models to rescue a prisoner from some terrorists.  It’s House of Style meets Commando

Crimes of Passion.

In this movie Kathleen Turner plays a prostitute who also works in advertising.  Hmm,I don’t really see much difference between both careers.  At least one gives you their rates before they fuck you.  Oh and the movie also has Anthony Perkins as a sexually repressed preacher.  Again, I don’t see much difference between him and certain members of the catholic church.  Except that this one prefers ones that are a bit older.

About The Vern

I love movies and I enjoy writing about them too. They both go pretty much hand in hand with each other and it's fun to discover new classics. I co host the podcasts The Film Pasture, ScreenTrax, and soon Cinema Recall. While also contributing reviews and articles to other great sites when I can.
