An awful slate of new releases on DVD this week is led by the latest chapter in the Underworld saga, which continues to pump out films, despite the fact that nobody seems to like any of them much. When a franchise reaches four films, wasn’t at least the first one supposed to be good? A bigger disappointment, though, might be the Tim and Eric film. The comedy duo was responsible for one of the most bizarrely hilarious sketch shows in years, but the humor didn’t seem to translate to the big screen.
When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, a war to eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrioress Selene leads the battle against humankind.
