Now that Boston Legal has ended, where will we get our William Shatner fix except in those PriceLine commercials? How about in Groom Lake, a 2002 sci-fi film the great captain developed, directed, produced and starred in?
Amy Acker (recently — and briefly — seen in Joss Whedon's TV series Dollhouse), Dan Gauthier (Melrose Place), Duane Whitaker (Pulp Fiction) and Dick Van Patten (Eight Is Enough) are also featured.
Groom Lake is a small desert town on the outskirts of an Arizona military base, an area where UFO sightings and alien encounters are alleged. Acker, playing a young woman with a terminal illness, and Gauthier, as her husband, find themselves in the middle of a military conspiracy and an alien mystery.
The DVD includes a cool new interview with Shatner. Groom Lake is not rated and lists for $19.98.
Never miss a local story.
The theatrical film Twilight is scheduled to be released Saturday, and a lot of people are happy about that. A&E has its own bit of "twilighty" entertainment, too, in the documentary Vampire Secrets, which arrived in stores Tuesday.
This fascinating 47-minute look at the history of the blood-suckers examines the folklore common in cultures around the world that have shaped our conception of these fangy fiends.
Vampire Secrets is not rated and lists for $19.95.
Twilight will be released in a two-disc special edition with extras including five extended scenes, five deleted scenes and a documentary, The Adventure Begins: The Journey From Page to Screen. Twilight is rated PG-13 and lists for $32.99.
