click to enlarge Masters of Horror: Dario Argento's - Jenifer (NR)  -  - Directed by Dario Argento  - Anchor Bay Entertainment  -  -  - There's no way around it: If there's anyone who deserves - the title "Master of Horror", well, dammit, it's Italian - horror-god Dario Argento. No one makes films like - Argento  have you seen Suspiria? Opera - ? Phenomena? If not, go out right now and - watch them, and don't speak to me again until you have. - With all this, it's only fitting that his entry in the - Masters of Horror series is also the most - stylishly creepy of the lot. Adapted from a '70s - Creepy magazine story by Bruce Jones and - Bernie Wrightson, Jenifer is the story of a - horribly disfigured girl with no past and the havoc that - ensues as she enters the life of a depressed cop. And if - you're a fan of Argento, you know no one does - disfigured psychos better than him. Louis - Fowler

click to enlarge Chappelle's Show: The Lost - Episodes (Uncensored) (NR)  -  -  - Paramount/Comedy Central DVD -  -  - Before his supposed meltdown, Dave Chappelle and his - crew had a handful of sketches in the can that, before - DVD, would have been left on the cutting-room floor. - But, luckily for his fans, they were spliced together, - made into quasi-episodes hosted by Charlie Murphy and - Donnell Rawlings, shown ad nauseum on Comedy - Central, and then placed on DVD. Is it worth it? Yeah, if - you're a fan, it's great to have  and it's priced at - around ten bucks. But, to be honest, there's more misses - than hits on this compilation. Some bits are classic  the - racial imps or the MTV "Cribs" parody, for instance  but - on whole, it completely lacks the sprit and focus of the - previous two seasons. Maybe it's a good thing Chappelle - cut out when he did. -  - Louis Fowler

click to enlarge Blind Beast vs. Killer Dwarf (NR) -  -  - Directed by Teruo Ishii  - Panik House Entertainment  -  -  - How can you not be intrigued by a movie with a title like - Blind Beast vs. Killer Dwarf? Well, the images - that title might conjure in your head are probably - nothing compared to the bizarre, ultra-surreal spectacle - that plays out on film. Based on a story by the Japanese - Edgar Allan Poe (Edogawa Rampo, whose name is a - Japanese rendering of Poe's) BB vs. KD is about - ... well, it's hard to exactly describe what's on-screen in - print. There are so many images, so many anachronisms, - so many dream-like states of being, that even after two - watchings, I'm still not sure what happened. But it's such - an involving nightmare that I'm willing to re-experience - it again and again to figure it out. Completely, totally - and without question, recommended. Louis - Fowler
