- Virus (PG)  -  - Directed by Kinji Fukasaku  - Ronin Entertainment/BCI Eclipse  -  - When a deadly viral agent is accidentally unleashed on - the world, a full-scale pandemic breaks out, decimating - the world's population to about 800  all of whom are - holed-up in Antarctica, where the virus will remain - dormant. And so is the plot of one of the greatest post- - apocalyptic films ever, the Japanese-lensed Virus, which, at the time of its, release was the most - expensive Japanese film of all time. Its all-star cast is a - veritable who's who of the disaster film genre: George - Kennedy, Olivia Hussey, Henry Silva, Bo Svenson, Robert - Vaughan. And, with the threat of avian flu in the air, this - one is a little prophetic. Available as part of the - Sonny Chiba Action Pack.  Louis - Fowler

Voodoo Moon (NR)  -  - Directed by Kevin VanHook  - Anchor Bay Entertainment  -  - Despite a great horror cast, including Re- - Animator's Jeffrey Combs and The Howling's Dee Wallace, the Satanic cheesefest that is Voodoo - Moon is sadly, a tad D.O.A. The film, directed by - visual effect maestro Kevin VanHook, looks great and has - fantastic effects, but neither of these make up for the - film's other pitfalls. The story is a retread of many other - chosen-one-versus-an-unholy-evil films, and much of - the dialogue is pretty unintentionally funny  the - "chosen one" uses many psychic powers and holy - armaments against a decidedly Eurotrash Satan, who, - with his slicked-backed hair and wispy goatee, looks - more like an art-dealer than Lord of the Underworld. -  Louis Fowler

Cinderella 2000 (R)  -  - Directed by Al Adamson  - Retro-Seduction Cinema/ - POPcinema  -  - In the year 2047, a Big Brother government has declared - sex illegal. Apparently, they have also declared good - acting, decent camera work and semi-professional set - designs illegal, because even for a ultra-low-budget, - 1970s soft-core sex comedy, this one is scraping the - bottom of the barrel. But, even for all of its many faults, - this Al Adamson production is not without its innocent, - naive charms: the day-glo colors that adorn every - surface and a handful of goofy, out-of-tune musical - numbers, to name a couple. The new DVD release by - Retro-Seduction Cinema features the American cut, the - spicier Euro cut, and a completely entertaining - commentary by producer Sam Sherman, who gives the - ins-and-outs of the 70s low-budget film scene.  - Louis Fowler
