Summer time at the box office is amazing. From the first weekend in May until sometime in August, there is usually an average of one $100 million dollar movie released per week. This year will have at least three months in a row with at least one $100 million film. On the home market, on the other hand, summer time is crappy. This year has been particularly tiresome, as the spring wasn't a fun time at the box office. The biggest release this week is Source Code, which was only a midlevel hit. To be fair, it is one of the best-reviewed wide releases of the year. On the other hand, neither the DVD nor the Blu-ray are exactly overloaded with extras.

Hammer Films is arguably the most famous horror movie studio of all time. In fact, it is arguably the studio most associated with horror, with the possible exception of Universal back in the 1930s and 1940s. Unfortunately, its peak was in the 1960s and it has long since been out of the business. That is until recently. The studio has been relaunched and one of its first films since then is Wake Wood. It only earned a limited release in its native U.K. and is coming out direct-to-DVD here. But does it deserve a wider audience? Or will it fade into the overcrowded low-budget horror market?
